Last Updated: Sat, Apr 13, 2013 05:01 hrs

Chennai: Two aggressive and in-form sides will clash in a battle of equals when former champions Chennai Super Kings face off against Royal Challengers Bangalore in a IPL clash on Saturday.

It would be a contest on even keel as both the teams are coming off big wins. While Chennai thrashed Kings XI Punjab by 10 wickets, RCB defeated defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders by eight wickets in their previous matches.

Although RCB and CSK seem evenly-matched on paper, the presence of Chris Gayle in the Bangalore team could prove to be the decisive factor. More Preview

Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore have forged a keen rivalry over the years in the Great Southern Derby.

Last year it was CSK that won bragging rights after a sensational last ball victory in Chennai.

Only one winner seemed possible after RCB amassed a hefty 205. But Albie Morkel smashed Virat Kohli for 28 in over and Ravindra Jadeja delivered the coup de grace with a boundary off the final delivery.

The return game in Bangalore was washed out without a ball being bowled.
