Ranchi, May 21: The �right to play in the Pepsi IPL 2015 Final� will be at stake when the CSK take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore at JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi on Friday.
Only once has a side won both the eliminator and the second qualifier games in the IPL. Chennai Super Kings did that in 2012, but went down to Kolkata Knight Riders in the final.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will want to become the second side to do so, but find Super Kings in their way.
The pitch appeared pretty dry on the eve of the game. The average first-innings score in IPL games in Ranchi is 150, suggesting a surface more to Super Kings’ liking than Royal Challengers’.
The city is expected to sizzle at a maximum of 41 degrees but conditions will not be so extreme in the night. No rain is forecast.
