CSK vs RCB IPL 2024: Preview, Playing 11, Prediction, Venue, FAQs

CSK vs RCB, IPL 2024: Chennai Super Kings are gearing up to launch their IPL title campaign with hopes of securing a victorious start, potentially paving their path to becoming the most successful team in IPL history. They will face a Royal Challengers Bangalore side fueled by added motivation following their historic WPL title win under Smriti Mandhana’s leadership.

However, achieving victory won’t be a simple task, and Faf Du Plessis’s squad understands this reality well. In the 31 IPL matches between the two teams, CSK has emerged victorious 20 times, while RCB has managed only 10 wins. In their last encounter during IPL 2023, CSK secured an eight-wicket win over RCB at Chepauk.

RCB boasts a solid batting lineup, led by Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Faf, but their bowling department raises concerns, particularly regarding the absence of a prominent spinner. While Cameron Green adds strength to their arsenal, CSK will likely target their key players to gain an edge.

On the other hand, CSK enters the tournament with their usual depth and balance. Amidst talks surrounding MS Dhoni’s potential farewell season, the inclusion of supremely talented Rachin Ravindra further enhances the threat posed by the CSK lineup.
