The dashing right-hander from Madhya Pradesh's Indore is a treat to watch when on song. After having remained muted in the initial few matches, Rajat has had a stunning turnaround, becoming the backbone of RCB's middle order. He has scored 5 fifties with a strike rate of 179.77. He is also described as the spin-destroyer by the RCB fans and is definitely one of the batters to look out for on Saturday.

Last but not the least, RCB's captain Faf du Plessis would be raring to go against his former team. Although his form has been a big issue for RCB, his importance and batting capability cannot be underscored. He looks like a man for the big games, and could be crucial in the game against CSK.
