RCB vs CHE clash in the IPL 2024 will take place on Saturday in Bengaluru.

Match No. 68 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 will be played between two contenders for the playoffs, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Saturday. This clash will be held at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

This game is a do-or-die match for both sides, as the playoffs stake is on the line. RCB have made an excellent way for them to get back in the race after finding them at the bottom of the table. Meanwhile, CSK are in a situation where they need a win here to make it to the next round.

RCB vs CSK: Head-to-Head

CSK have a brilliant track record against RCB in the IPL. They have beaten RCB 21 times out of 32 games played between the two. RCB have registered wins in 10 matches, while one game ended without any result.

RCB vs CSK: Top five player battles to watch out for

1. Virat Kohli vs Ravindra Jadeja

Two of India’s best cricketers will be up against each other in this RCB vs CSK clash. Virat Kohli has been in this form of life, and he is scoring runs in almost every game. He has single-handedly taken his team to a good position and is the Orange Cap holder. But he will be up against Ravindra Jadeja, who is CSK’s highest wicket-taker among current players against RCB. Both have played a lot with each other and know each other’s game. Jadeja has done well against Virat and dismissed him three times. Meanwhile, Virat has scored 144 runs off 138 balls at a strike rate of 104.3 against him.

2. Faf du Plessis vs Moeen Ali

Faf du Plessis will have a big role in this game. His team needs the captain to fire in this important game. He is in good form and can be a game-changer. CSK have a less experienced pace attack, and Du Plessis can use that in the powerplay. But his numbers aren’t that good against Moeen Ali. Moeen has dismissed Du Plessis three times in international cricket. Meanwhile, in the IPL, Moeen has dismissed Du Plessis twice in just 11 balls.

3. Rajat Patidar vs Tushar Deshpande

Rajat Patidar has shown incredible consistency in the second half of the IPL 2024. He has smashed five half-centuries in the last seven innings. Patidar’s ability to hit sixes in the middle phase has helped RCB, and his contribution will be immense in the coming RCB vs CSK clash. That’s why it is important to get him out early. Tushar Deshpande is the leading wicket-taker for CSK this season. He has dismissed Patidar once in four balls in the IPL and can be effective against him because he can be a bit skiddy at times with his length.

4. Shivam Dube vs Lockie Ferguson

Shivam Dube has failed in the last few matches, but we all know how dangerous he can be, and Chinnaswamy Stadium is not a big ground for him. He has an average of 113 and a strike rate of over 170 runs against RCB. RCB might use Lockie Ferguson against him because of his ability to bounce out the batter. He bowls quick and has a good slower one, which will make this matchup very interesting.

5. Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Yash Dayal

Ruturaj Gaikwad will be very crucial for CSK. He is in top form and is scoring runs in almost every game. His start will be very important for the team. But he will have to negotiate some early swing. Yash Dayal has been in good form for RCB and is their highest wicket-taker. He bowls at a good pace and swings the ball, and he has a good yorker in his armor. He has dismissed Gaikwad twice in the IPL in 32 balls as well.
