Chennai Super Kings will square off with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 22nd match of IPL 2022 on Tuesday. Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to continue to march after beating rivals Mumbai Indians in the previous match which has placed them fourth in the points table. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings slumped to their fourth straight defeat and are yet to win a match in this season. They are currently at the bottom of the table and this will be a do-or-die game for them unless they want to leave it too late. This promises to be a great game.

CSK vs RCB, Match 22 Pitch Report:
This pitch here has helped the fast bowlers and has been very sporting, and today might not be any different. There is a good layer of lively grass and there will be pace and bounce on offer. But that could be a double-edged sword. Batting first might not be that bad an idea.

CSK vs RCB Risky Captaincy Choices:
Ruturaj Gaikwad is a quality batter but has been out of runs in all the 4 matches so far, however it is only a matter of time before he gets a big score and this match will be a good time to risk him as captain.
Player you should avoid:
Shivam Dube has done nothing big apart from the single fifty that he scored a few matches back, he bats very low and might not get enough balls so better to avoid him for this match.
