CSK vs RCB
RCB had lost twice to CSK last season
RCB finished sixth last term and the idea will be to produce a much better show this time around with the resources at their disposal.
Kohli & Co. lost both the matches in the group stage against CSK last year.
The side failed to defend the total on both occasions.
Kohli will be wary of an all-round CSK.
Cricket returns to Chennai after a long time
Chennai go into the match against RCB as favorites.
This time they play at home after three seasons.
CSK were suspended for two years and last season they were forced to play most of their home matches in Pune.
Given the conditions, the southern giants will be expected to win the opener against Kohli's men.
Fans will hope for quality cricket all around.
A cracking game awaits the fans on Saturday
Kohli and AB de Villiers hold key for RCB against a top notch CSK attack. If the two manage to get going, then that could give the side breathing space. CSK will rely on their powerful Indian unit, besides the experience of Shane Watson.
