The IPL 2023 has reached its 24th game. MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings will lock horns against Faf du Plessis’s Royal Challengers Bangalore. The match will be hosted at the home stadium of RCB, M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. The match is between the two juggernauts of the Indian Premier League. Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore are known to be the most powerful teams in IPL history. We are about to witness an electrifying IPL match today.
M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is the most suitable for batters. We can clearly say that this pitch is heaven for batters and a nightmare for bowlers. The flat surface is the most favorable for batters. They will be able to easily make their shots and score maximum runs. The pitch also has something to offer for bowlers as well. The team who wins the toss will most likely choose bowling first. The possibility of dew coming in the second innings is quite high so the bowlers who are bowling first will have a huge advantage in the match. Dew will make the ball slippery hence the grip on the ball will be low. This could become an issue for bowlers.
M. Chinnaswamy is a pitch where RCB has performed the best. The iconic highest score in IPL history was taken in this stadium. Most of the matches played in this stadium had an average run of above 200 in IPL. This is mostly due to the batting-friendly nature of the pitch. The dimension of the stadium is also not very problematic for the batters. Maintaining a high run rate is necessary in this stadium as it is comparatively easier to take high runs.
The overall situation of both teams is almost similar. Chennai Super Kings is standing at the sixth position of the points table with two wins out of four matches played. Royal Challengers is positioned in seventh place with two wins out of four matches played. The result of the match decides if the teams are going to rise above the points table. Chennai Super Kings have favourable head-to-head records against RCB. CSK has won 19 matches out of 30 matches played and RCB managed to win 10 matches. Both teams have some of the best-skilled players in the IPL. We are about to witness yet another thrilling match of CSK vs RCB.
