IPL 2024 CSK vs RCB Clash: Can Faf’s Reds break Chennai’s streak?

 It is a thrilling faceoff as Chennai Super Kings clash Royal Challengers Bangalore in the much-awaiting IPL 2024 opener at Chennai. Whereas cricket fans are waiting with bated breath, people are also interested in learning if RCB, captained by Faf du Plessis, can break the ages-old jinx on MA Chidambaram stadium. In a turn of events, CSK’s decision to name Ruturaj Gaikwad as the latest captain throws a favorable specter over the match. MS Dhoni relinquished the post of captain a few hours before the opener. While it remains to be sight how the teams will battle out, the focus stays on du Plessis as Rcb pack to break a streak at Chepauk.

The history books don’t favor RCB, who has lost seven consecutive matches to CSK on their home soil at Chepauk since its inception in IPL. The last time RCB won was in 2008 and is excited to change the narrative with FAF leading the charge. On the flip side, considering the bowlers that RCB has, it seems intimidating. Meanwhile, CSK is anticipated to bounce on Dhoni’s return with a squad that includes Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, and Shivam Dube among other intimidating batters.


Fans are eager to watch how Virat Kohli performs after his departing, and the explosive duo of Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green also is eye-candy in the upcoming clash.

The toss plays an important part, and both teams are ready to modify their tactics according to the pitch status.
