Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore  – Match 1 of IPL 2024
22 March, 8:00 PM IST
MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

CSK vs RCB IPL 2024 Match Prediction

CSK’s all eyes will be on Ravindra Jadeja, who had a great time playing the Test series vs England, stroking a century in one of the games. Deepak Chahar returns and would want to make a statement with a good show in this edition of IPL. They completed 2nd in the points table last season and won the IPL trophy defeating Gujarat Titans by 5 wickets.

With Andy Flower joined as the head coach, RCB’s batting looks as solid as ever. There is Virat Kohli. There is Glenn Maxwell. Faf du Plessis leads. If these three have a good IPL, RCB should easily make it to the playoffs. But to win the league, you need the whole team to fire. That is why the local talent in the form of Anuj Rawat, Rajat Patidar, and Karn Sharma must step in and be counted. However, RCB’s journey was not good enough last season. They ended up standing at the sixth position with 7 wins and 7 losses.
