IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings:

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: And thus ends the playoff race

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: But it is yet to be seen who finishes second and third, two very consequential positions. KKR are confirmed as the table-topperswill thus play in qualifier 1. As things stand, they will be facing RR, with SRH facing RCB in the Eliminator. However, SRH face PBKS tomorrow while RR play KKR later in the day. There is only a point separating second and third place and this means a victory for SRH and a defeat for RR will lead to the two sides switching positions. Regardless of what happens tomorrow, surely RCB are the story of the season. They have become the first side to qualify for the playoffs despite winning just once in their first seven matches. Their batting and bowling units were disasters in the first half of the tournament but in the second half, they somehow chanced upon the answer to the jigsaw puzzle. Their performance today with the bat is what we have typically seen from RCB in their run of six back-to-back victories - high strike-rate contributions from all those who batted, with one or two who would almost score a half-century or get past that mark. They held on to everything in the field, save for a casual throw by Kohli during the Jadeja-Dhoni stand that led to an extra run for CSK. The fans in Bengaluru got their money's worth today. They saw their team complete the impossible comeback and they also got to see Dhoni play a major role in the chase. In fact, keep an eye on the news for the next few days. What we saw from the great man today could very well be the last offering of his storied career. That's it from us here, but do come back tomorrow as we finish off the league stage with a couple of not-so-dead rubbers.

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: Faf du Plessis, the winning captain and player of the match

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: “What a night. Unbelievable and such a great atmosphere, such a pleasure to finish off the season with a win. Batting first, I think it was the hardest pitch I have ever played on. Myself and Virat were talking about 140-150 after we came back from the rain break. The communication from the umpires was there was a lot of rain on the pitch, they wanted to push the game and that makes sense. and when we came back my god, I was telling Mitch Santner it was like a day 5 pitch at ranchi and to get 200 on that was unbelievable. The last 6 games the batters have batted with good intent and good strike-rate. We were slow earlier on and we wanted more intent and that was awesome. We were defending 175, it got a bit close, at one stage, with MS there, I thought, oh dear, he has done it so many times. The way we bowleed with the wet ball, we tried to change it. I wanted to give the Man of the Match to Yash Dayal. The way he bowled was unbelievable. For a man who's fairly new, he deserves it. [on what he told Dayal before the last over] Pace off is the best option and trust your skills and enjoy, this is what you trained for. The yorker did not work the 1st ball and he went back to pace off and it worked unbelievably well. [on the crowd tonight[ It's crazy, even when we weren't winning the fans were here. We felt in the changeroom we felt it was something we had to get right. Coming here tonight, it was set up nicely, CSK v RCB, unbelievable atmosphere and we as a team will do a lap of honour to thank the crowd for the support. It's really important that we enjoy this, great 6 games in a row and the first goal is to get into the knockouts, enjoy this but get back to work tomorrow.”

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad reacts to the heartbreak

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: "It was a good wicket. For spinners, it was turning and gripping a little bit. Pretty happy with what the target was. To sum up the season, pretty happy with seven games out of 14. Injuries, not having Conway as well - made a lot of difference. Challenges right from the first game. Pathirana got injured, we missed Fizz as well. When you have injuries, it is difficult to balance the squad... Couldn't get over the line, but these things can happen. For me, personal milestones don't matter a lot. After all, the ultimate prize is to win. We couldn't get it, so personally I'm slightly disappointed as well."

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: RCB QUALIFY FOR THE PLAYOFFS, BEAT CSK BY 27 RUNS

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: RCB have done the impossible! Six victories in a row and they have snatched that last playoff position from under CSK's noses. CSK needed 10 to qualify off the last two balls with Jadeja on strike, same as they did last year in the final against GT, the only difference being that they needed 10 to win that game. At the time, Jadeja pulled it off somehow but Dayal, who was playing for GT last season, kept his cool and ended the over with two dot balls. The RCB players are running around the pitch, Kohli seems close to tears. They had just one win in their first eight matches and inexplicably, they have qualified for the playoffs. They have hit the kind of form that can win teams championships. The women's team won the WPL this season, the men's team couldn't possibly follow suit, could they?

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: Shivam Dube's poor form continues and is this how he is set to bow out of a season that was initially seen as a breakthrough one for him? Dube's pain has ended really. Green bowls the 14th over, his fourth ball is banged in back of a length towards middle and off. Dube can't pull it away properly, sends it to long-on. RCB players roar and scream and run around in delight, they are beginning to smell it now. What a remarkable turnaround this is.

Wickets seem to come off Maxwell's overs one way or another. Ravindra calls for two initially, both batters get to their ends quickly and Dube respects the call. But Ravindra hesitates a few feet off the non-striker's end, Dube crosses him as the stumps are taken off. The kind of wicket that can sap out all momentum from an innings.

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: A mathematician's delight is what this score and this entire equation is. RCB must win this match by at least 18 runs to qualify for the playoffs. They have gone and scored 218 runs, which means CSK's target is 219. Hence, CSK need to score 201 runs to qualify for the playoffs. RCB cannot let CSK score more than 200. Glenn Maxwell smashed 16 runs in the five deliveries that he faced before falling to Thakur off the fifth ball of the last. Lomror then couldn't get the last ball away and so the RCB innings ended with a dot. Cameron Green unbeaten on 38 off 17.

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: And moreover, Gaikwad drops an absolute sitter off the last ball of that over to give Cam Green a second life. An utterly disastrous over that for CSK. Shardul Thakur is the bowler, fires the first one in at yorker-length outside off, Patidar fl;ays at it and it goes off the outside edge over fly slip for four. Then there is an appeal off the second ball, Dhoni tells Thakur and Gaikwad that the ball has pitched outside off and it seems obvious that CSK haven't taken the review, only for it to emerge that Gaikwad had decided to overrule Dhoni and take the review. Sure enough, the ball has pitched well outside off. The batters ran a leg bye off that delivery and then Green clobbers the third over long-on for a six. Two singles and then Green pulls the last ball hard and flat, Gaikwad takes a few steps forward but drops the it despite the ball coming straight at him. To make matters worse, it trickles to the boundary behind him.

Santner with a fullish delivery to end the 13th over, Patidar drives it back to the bowler. Santner sticks out his right hand and the ball grazes is fingers before hitting the stumps. Initially, it looked like Du Plessis had put his bat down in the crease on time. However, closer look tells us that Du Plessis bat ever so slightly in the air as the bails fell off. An extraordinary end to what was turning into an extraordinary innings.

IPL 2024, RCB vs CSK Live Score, Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Chennai Super Kings: Santner gets his man just after being hit for a six. In fact two Kiwis converged to get Kohli out there. The former RCB captain tries to hit it against the spin, ends up sending the ball to Daryl Mitchell at long on, who was running back and had to throw the ball up briefly in the air as his movement took him beyond the boundary. He gets back in and takes the catch once again. A brilliant innings from Kohli.
