Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) currently are sitting pretty at the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 table with four wins in a row and the Virat Kohli-led side will be keen on continuing that momentum, but it will not be easy as they come up against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) next. CSK, on the other hand, are just two points behind and a win against RCB will see them go top.

RCB coach Simon Katich, ahead of the game against CSK that his side has immense respect for MS Dhoni and the entire unit as they can be damaging. "Dhoni is a master, isn't he? They are sitting at the top with three wins, they have had a fantastic start, they have fantastic players, we have a huge amount of respect for CSK, it is going to be a great game, we have seen some great games in Mumbai already. CSK has a very damaging batting lineup but we know our bowling line-up has performed well this season," said Katich in a video posted on RCB's Twitter handle.

Australia pacer Kane Richardson played his first game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the previous game and feels CSK have a fantastic batting line-up and RCB will have their task cut out.  "It was enjoyable to finally play. It has been good watching the boys play in the first three games but it was good to finally get out there and play and be a part of the winning team. I have been rusty myself, it was great," said Richardson. 

"It all depends on the conditions at the Wankhede. Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad, are in form and they are batting well, so we will come up with some plans to stop them. They have experience throughout their team, they have won a lot of IPLs so it is going to be a really good game," he added.
