IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Highlights: Royal Challengers Bengaluru completed one of the most remarkable comebacks in the IPL's league stage history by winning their sixth match in a row and qualifying for the playoffs. RCB beat the Chennai Super Kings by 27 runs at home to snatch the final playoff spot away from their rivals. The hosts scored 218/5 batting first and CSK needed to score at least 201 runs to hold on to fourth place. While Rachin Ravindra and Ajinkya Rahane seemed to have resurrected the CSK cause, RCB kept chipping away. Ravindra Jadeja then shared a 61-run stand with MS Dhoni that came in just 27 balls. By this point, the focus was solely on the total that CSK needed to get to so as to reach the playoffs....Read More

It came down to CSK needing 17 off the last over to qualify. Yash Dayal was the bowler and Dhoni reduced that deficit to 11 needed off five by hitting a six first ball. However, he fell off the very next ball and Dayal held his cool to give just one more run in the rest of the over. RCB thus recorded their sixth consecutive win and qualified for the playoffs.

Gaikwad earlier won the toss and chose to bowl. Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis smashed 31 runs in three overs before rain appeared and forced the players off the field. RCB motored along after resumption, regardless of whether they lost wickets. Kohli and Du Plessis, and later Rajat Patidar and Camergon Green, defied CSK as the visitors threw spinners at them to exploit the conditions. RCB's seniormost batters put up a partnership of 78 runs in 58 balls after which Du Plessis shared a 35-run stand in 20 balls. Then came a blazing 71-run stand between Patidar and Green that came in just 28 balls.

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: 60m square boundaries, 70m straight down the ground. There's not much grass on the surface, there are a few cracks and it looks mosaic, but the pitch is rock hard, reckons Deep Dasgupta. Doesn't have that extra moisture like the last game played here. There will be runs scored. Hasn't rained much since yesterday barring the occasional drizzle.

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: League stage starts and ends with RCB-CSK for these two sides

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: Except the last time these two sides met it was CSK-RCB of course. Mustafizur Rahman ran through the RCB top order but a late lift from Anuj Rawat and Dinesh Karthik took them to 173 for 6.

In many ways, that result set the tone for the first half of the season for the two sides. But it all changed since then.

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: Virat Kohli's change in approach

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: The 2024 season could be remembered for the intense debate over strike rates at the centre of which was Virat Kohli. There is no doubt that the great man has made a conscious change in his attitude towards this part of the game and the result is that Kohli approaches the final game of RCB's league stage with his highest strike rate yet for a season. He has gone at 155.16 which is just over the 152.03 he had managed in that freak of a 2016 season. He has hit 33 sixes, which is second only to the 38 he managed in 2016. What is more telling is that between 2016 and now, Kohli has hit more than 15 sixes in a season just twice and hit less than 10 sixes in two seasons in this period as well. It is also to be noted that Kohli's 38 sixes in 2016 came in 16 matches while his current tally has come in 13. Shows just how different the RCB talisman has been this season compared to what he usually does in T20 cricket.
