RCB vs CSK pitch report: Will the batsmen dominate or the bowlers will show magic, what will be the mood of the pitch, know the report card.

Hyderabad has won only 2 out of the last 6 matches
Sunrisers have been able to win only two out of the last six matches. It faced defeat in three while one match was lost due to rain. However, the morale of the team would have been boosted by the fact that before the match against Gujarat was canceled due to rain, it had defeated Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) by 10 wickets. Both the team's opening batsmen, Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, are in excellent form and have been successful in instilling fear in the opposition bowlers with their explosive batting. Head has been more aggressive in this. He has 533 runs in his name in 11 matches with an excellent strike rate of 201.89. In the current season, he is the third highest run scorer after Virat Kohli (661 runs) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (583 runs).

Sunrisers batsmen dominated
Sunrisers' openers were so effective that the middle order did not get much chance to bear the pressure. The lack of consistency in the performance of wicketkeeper Heinrich Klaasen has increased the team's problems but in the last few matches, Nitish Kumar Reddy has performed well with the bat. With the presence of captain Pat Cummins, experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan, the team has excellent options in fast bowling.

Jitesh Sharma will be the captain of Punjab in the last match
This will be a chance for Punjab Kings to prove themselves after failing to make it to the last four. The team will not get the services of English players including acting captain Sam Curran in this match. Karen played a decisive role in the five-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals. Wicketkeeper-batsman Jitesh Sharma will lead Punjab Kings in their final match of the season after Curran returns home. This could be a chance for Jitesh to impress the franchises, who are preparing for the mega auction ahead of next year's IPL.
