Being the last match for both the teams, RCB is in the position of a must-win game. Also, RCB has to beat CSK with a higher run-rate for a place in the semi-final of the Pepsi IPL-6 T20 tournament, as Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers are also in the race for the same spot.

Chris Gayle has been happy hunting in Bangalore ground; he has scored 504 runs in Bangalore out of the 680 runs with a best of 175 not out this season.

Besides Chris Gayle, RCB captain Virat Kohli and hitter A.B. de Villiers have been in top form throughout the tournament in the home ground as well as other grounds.

On the bowling side, Ravi Rampaul, Murali Kartik, Jaydev Unadkat and Vinay Kumar have done well in patches but they have failed to bowl as a unit.
