Pitch Report: "It's really hot here, an absolute furnace at the Chinnaswamy. It's for the second time this wicket is being used in this IPL. Looks a lot drier and cracks have started to open up. In 2016, almost 200 was an average score but last year it was a lot less, around 140-150. Think toss is going to be make a huge difference. Whoever wins the toss must look to bat first and set a big score for the opposition and hope the sun plays its role." - Matthew Hayden.


RCB are placed fifth and RR sixth on the points table with two points each from two matches. They both lost their respective openers against Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
