RCB vs CSK IPL 2024 Match Up: Top 5 Player Battles to Watch Out For

In their bid to qualify for the playoffs of the IPL 2024, Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Chennai Super Kings will lock horns in a crucial encounter as the winner of this game is likely to book their berth among the top four. Meanwhile, in this post, we will take a look at the top five player battles to watch out for in the RCB vs CSK contest.

RCB vs CSK Top 5 Player Battles

1 – Virat Kohli vs Ravindra Jadeja

Matches 9 (T20)
Runs 66
Balls 66
Outs 1

Virat Kohli takes his time to get going against the left-arm spinners and Chennai Super Kings could use it in their favour. Ravindra Jadeja has always contained Virat Kohli, giving away only 66 runs off 66 deliveries across 9 meetings. However, the left-arm spinner has only dismissed the Run Machine once.

2 – Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Yash Dayal

Matches 4 (T20)
Runs 52
Balls 32
Outs 2

Ruturaj Gaikwad is the biggest wicket of the CSK and the RCB will try to pick him up early. Yash Dayal has turned his form during the second half and he could be the biggest weapon against the CSK skipper. The left-arm pacer has dismissed Gaikwad twice in four meetings, including the earlier meeting between the CSK and the RCB this season.

3 – Faf du Plessis vs Tushar Deshpande

Matches 3 (T20)
Runs 46
Balls 26
Outs 0

Faf du Plessis likes to attack in the powerplay, while Tushar Deshpande has been nipping the new ball for the CSK. While the former South African skipper has managed to dominate the young pacer in three meetings so far, Tushar Deshpande has been in fine form lately and he could trouble the veteran batter. He has a great in-nipper off the seam that could account for the Faf du Plessis’ wicket.

4 – Daryl Mitchell vs Cameron Green

Matches 1 (T20)
Runs 1
Balls 2
Outs 1

Due to his consistent performances, Daryl Mitchell has become a reliable batter for the CSK. At the same time, Cameron Green has emerged as a wicket-taking option for the RCB in the middle overs. The Aussie all-rounder bowls heavy bowls to trouble the batters and he has already accounted for the Kiwi in the only IPL meeting between the two so far.

5 – Rajat Patidar vs Simarjeet Singh

Matches 0 (T20)
Runs 0
Balls 0
Outs 0

Rajat Patidar ressurgence has been the story of the second half of the IPL as the right-handed batter has been the biggest forces behind the RCB’s surge lately. On the other hand, Simarjeet Singh has produced consistent performances in the middle overs and at the death for the CSK in the last few games. It could be an interesting battle during the middle phase between the two talented youngsters.
