Chennai Super Kings bowling coach Andy Bichel believes it will be a challenge for his team to beat RCB on their home turf.

Chennai Super Kings bowling coach Andy Bichel wants his team to repeat the impressive performance versus Royal Challengers Bangalore today after scripting a nail-biting win when the teams met on April 12.

“Since RCB’s batting looks heavy at top of the order fully packed with overseas players, I think it will come down to a nail-biting over and hope we can win this (type of a game) again. It will be a high-scoring game as the history of Chinnaswamy wicket speaks thus,” Bichel said yesterday.

“It’s a challenge for us coming here and playing at RCB’s home territory. They are a good side and there will be momentum,” he said. CSK are upbeat with the return of Albie Morkel, who had flown to South Africa to attend the funeral of his close friend. “Albie is playing tomorrow ... He will lend more depth to our side,” Bichel stated.
