If Dinesh Karthik is ruled out, Anuj Rawat is expected to come in and will take care of holding duties. But it is his batting position that will change. Rawat opened with Faf du Plessis. However, with the team backing Virat Kohli to open, Rawat fell out of favor.

He can be placed at No. 3, but that will mean Rajat Patidar drops to No. 4 and Glenn Maxwell moves to No. 5. Shahbaz Ahmed will have to play the finisher role in DK’s absence.

Why RCB vs CSK will be a virtual knockout?

  • RCB with 10 points in as many games is placed in 5th place.
  • RCB have only 4 matches left to play and as things stand 18 points is the threshold for the playoffs.
  • RCB has a negative net run rate of -558 and that could be a deterrent to their playoff hopes.
  • For CSK, the situation is even more difficult. Even if they win all five games, they won’t be guaranteed a playoff spot.
  • But a defeat will surely end their hopes as they will reach a maximum of 14.
  • CSK are ranked 9th with 6 points in nine games.
