CSK vs RCB IPL 2024 Match 1: Match Prediction, Fantasy Team 11, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report

The Chennai Super Kings are gearing up to kick off their IPL 2024 campaign against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the M Chidambaram Stadium on March 22. The showdown between MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli, two cricketing legends of the modern era, promises to steal the spotlight in this match

This IPL 2024 season will present CSK the opportunity to cement their status as the most successful team in IPL history with six titles, and with MS Dhoni at their helm, another title is quite a possibility. 

RCB, who have never won the title, will be inspired by the historic Women’s Premier League (WPL) title win by Smriti Mandhana’s team. 

Coming to the head-to-head of matches between CSK and RCB, CSK takes a commanding lead. Out of the 31 encounters between them, CSK has emerged victorious 20 times, while RCB has only managed to win 10 matches. Additionally, one match concluded without a result. These numbers underline CSK’s dominance over RCB historically. But with both teams flaunting formidable line-ups, featuring stars like Kohli, Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Rachin Ravindra, Glenn Maxwell and Faf du Plessis, the stage is set for an exciting encounter. 

Ahead of IPL 2024’s opening match, here is everything you need to know.
