    CSK vs RCB - Match Report

    CSK vs RCB, IPL 2024: Mustafizur dents Bengaluru batting as Chennai triumphs in season opener

    Chennai Super Kings did ‘CSK things’ and Royal Challengers Bengaluru did ‘RCB things’ as the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) kicked off in grand fashion at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium here on Friday.

  • March 23, 2024 00:04
    CSK gets first points on board

    It was the early onslaught from Rachin Ravindra that really made the difference between the two sides. While RCB too had a quick start, it was not able to sustain it. CSK could do that courtesy of 37 off 15 from Rachin and Ajinkya Rahane’s 19-ball 28. There was a brief period where two wickets gave some hope to Faf & Co but Shivam Dube and Ravindra Jadeja got together to end that.

  • March 22, 2024 23:52
    CSK 176/4 in 18.4 overs

    Joseph to Dube, SIX! Way too short and Dube gets the invitation to pull it over mid wicket. FOUR leg byes down to fine leg to win the match by six wickets.

  • March 22, 2024 23:47
    CSK 164/4 in 18 overs

    Siraj to Dube, FOUR! On the leg-stump line and Dube pulls it behind square. FOUR more! Swats it down the ground right back over the bowler’s head.

  • March 22, 2024 23:38
    CSK 156/4 in 17 overs

    Joseph to continue. Sloppy work from Anuj Rawat. An overthrow from him allows Jadeja to pick a second run. FOUR! Dube cuts this uppish delivery behind square to pull his side closer to the target. FOUR byes in the over bring the required equation to run a ball. 19 needed off 19. Rawat looks like he’s hurt his hand trying to prevent those byes. Gets some treatment. 16 runs from the over.

  • March 22, 2024 23:31
    CSK 140/4 in 16 overs

    Green again. Jadeja taps to the on side with soft hands, hoping to pick two runs but some sharp work in the field allows only a single. FOUR! On his body and Dube hooks it off his back foot. A wide to follow from Green. Dube upper cuts to collect three more. Four more runs from the over makes it 12 off it.

  • March 22, 2024 23:25
    CSK 128/4 in 15 overs

    Siraj back for his third over. Jadeja is swift in pulling the ball on the on side but cannot quite breach the fence. Another seven-run over.

  • March 22, 2024 23:20
    CSK 121/4 in 14 overs

    Glenn Maxwell to Jadeja. SIX! Jadeja takes a long stride on his front foot to get to the pitch, and lofts it over the bowler’s head. A single to long on on the next ball. Four dots on the trot for Dube.

  • March 22, 2024 23:13
    CSK 114/4 in 13 overs

    Green to Dube, a bouncer for the batter which he fails to pull away. RCB is up in appeal, claiming a faint edge. A DRS check shows nothing and Faf and his team is one review down. WICKET! Green strikes again, Mitchell holes out at long on.

    Daryl Mitchell c Patidar b Green 22 (18)

    Ravindra Jadeja on a mission now. Five runs from the over.

  • March 22, 2024 23:02
    CSK 102/3 in 11 overs

    Cameron Green for his first over. SIX! A juicy half volley for Rahane, packs it behind square. WICKET! Tries to pull the bowler on again but is caught at the fence. Could not get the full swing of the bat.

  • March 22, 2024 22:56
    CSK 88/2 in 9 overs

    Karn to Mitchell, SIX! Overpitched and gets the treatment, parks it right into the sight screen. SIX more! This delivery is more on the off side but still at a length good enough to loft it over the boundary. 15 runs from the over.

  • March 22, 2024 22:53
    CSK 73/2 in 8 overs

    Daryl Mitchell in at No. 4, Mayank Dagar for his first over. Just two runs from the over, a single each for the two batters. CSK needs 101 off 72 balls.

  • March 22, 2024 22:46
    CSK 71/2 in 7 overs

    RCB brings on spin. Karn Sharma to bowl. SIX! Rachin is given the time to go back on his back foot, and he uses it to pick a maximum over mid wicket. OUT! One shot too many for Rachin. He tries to slog sweep but hands it to deep square leg.

    Rachin Ravindra c Patidar b Sharma 37 (15)

  • March 22, 2024 22:42
    CSK 62/1 in 6 overs

    Dayal to Rahane, SIX! In the slot and Rahane frees his levers to launch it over mid off. Two runs, Rahane tries to chip it over mid off again. He does not middle it but gets enough bat on it to beat the fielder. An overthrow on the final delivery allows three runs to Rahane. 

  • March 22, 2024 22:37
    CSK 49/1 in 5 overs

    Alzarri Joseph for the first time. SIX! Way too short first up and Rachin pummels it behind square. Ajinkya Rahane gets off the mark with a single to third man. Rachin tries to swipe at a delivery outside off; it is in the direction of mid off but falls short. Eleven runs from the over.

  • March 22, 2024 22:31
    CSK 38/1 in 4 overs

    Dayal to Ruturaj, one run with a tap to third man. FOUR! Angling down leg to Rachin who nudges it wide of short fine leg. FOUR again! This time its on pads of Ruturaj who glides it to the fence through fine leg. WICKET! Ruturaj nicks to Cameron Green at first slip while chasing a wide delivery.

    Ruturaj Gaikwad c Green b Dayal 15 (15)

  • March 22, 2024 22:25
    CSK 28/0 in 3 overs

    Siraj starts his second over with a wide. BOUNDARY! Siraj strays on the pads and Rachin clips it past square leg. CHANCE! Rachin’s attempted flick takes a leading edge but thankfully flies over the bowler. SIX to finish the over! A top edge off a pull shot, and the ball lands over the fine leg rope.

  • March 22, 2024 22:20
    CSK 13/0 in 2 overs

    Yash Dayal from the other end, Rachin on strike. FOUR! Streaky but Rachin will take it. He slashes hard outside off, gets an inside edge which runs to the right of the keeper. The boundary and a single from the over.

  • March 22, 2024 22:16
    CSK 8/0 in 1 over

    Mohammed Siraj to Ruturaj, FOUR! A boundary off the first delivery. It is pitched short and the CSK skipper latches onto it with a pull shot. FOUR more, this one through point. Ruturaj drives this delivery outside off. It hangs in the air but flies between the fielders and runs away to the fence.

  • March 22, 2024 22:14
    CSK needs 174 runs to win

    Rachin Ravindra and Ruturaj Gaikwad walk out for the home team.

  • March 22, 2024 22:14

    IN - Yash Dayal | OUT - Dinesh Karthik

  • March 22, 2024 22:09
    Did RCB get enough?

    The final total looked a distant dream when RCB was struggling at 42 for three at the end of the PowerPlay. Faf du Plessis ghave the side a strong start which withered away with three quick wickets. Virat Kohli and Cameron Green arrested the slide for a bit before Anuj Rawat and Dinesh Karthik added 95 runs for the sixth wicket, taking the side to a respectable 173. But Karthik admitted this is a batting pitch and that the RCB bowlers need to bowl “out of their skins” to win.

  • March 22, 2024 21:53
    Rawat, Karthik take RCB to competitive total

    WhatsApp Image 2024-03-22 at 21.47.14_4bc0494e.jpg

  • March 22, 2024 21:40
    RCB 173/6 in 20 overs

    Tushar to bowl the final over of the innings. He starts with a WIDE. The plan looks fairly clear. Tushar wants to target yorker-length deliveries outside off stump and in that process bowls two wides while RCB loses two reviews reviewing two calls for wide. FOUR! Dinesh gets an outside edge which runs away at third man. Karthik misses to get a connection in the final delivery and Dhoni nails the direct hit to run out Anuj Rawat who was just shy of making his ground. Anyhow a brilliant comeback from the wicket-keeper duo which added 95 off 50 for the sixth wicket and took RCB to 173. 

  • March 22, 2024 21:37
    RCB 163/5 in 19 overs

    Mustafizur with his final over. Dinesh Karthik lofts it over infield and runs two as RCB gets to 150. Mustafizur to Rawat, SIX! This young man can bat! He walks down the track and hits Mustafizur for a straight six. FOUR! This time Karthik plays fine and it runs away at the boundary. 16 off this over. 

  • March 22, 2024 21:30
    RCB 148/5 in 18 overs

    Tushar Deshpande to bowl the 18th over. Karthik changes his stance and tries to play the reverse sweep, Tushar follows him but bowls way outside offside and it is a WIDE. Tushar to Dinesh, SIX! Brilliant shot! A flat-batted straight six. Tushar to Rawat, SIX! This time full and in the batter’s slot as Rawat smokes it over deep mid-wicket for a gigantic six. Tushar to Rawat, SIX! Full toss and easy pickings for Rawat, who clears the long-on boundary. FOUR! Slower one from Tushar and Rawat plays fine to get 25 from this over.

  • March 22, 2024 21:21
    RCB 123/5 in 17 overs

    Dangerman Mustafizur comes back into the attack. FOUR! Rawat shuffles and pulls the short ball for a boundary. Another excellent over from Mustafizur who gives only seven from this over after going for a boundary and bowling a wide. 

  • March 22, 2024 21:16
    RCB 116/5 in 16 overs

    Maheesh Theekshana with his fourth over. FOUR! Karthik sweeps with authority and and ball races away for a boundary at deep square leg. SIX! Full toss on offer for Karthik and he rocks back and lofts it over deep long-on to end the over with a maximum. 

  • March 22, 2024 21:09
    RCB 102/5 in 15 overs

    Deepak Chahar to bowl his final over. FOUR! Full toss for Rawat and he placed it over extra-cover for a boundary. Four singles in the next four deliveries before Rawat plays an uppercut for a boundary to finish the over which also takes RCB over 100.

  • March 22, 2024 21:08
    RCB 90/5 in 14 overs

    Anuj Rawat and Dinesh Karthik are looking to rebuild from hereon as there are still six overs left and the duo are not looking for any risky boundary shots. Just seven from Jadeja’s over. 

  • March 22, 2024 21:03
    RCB 83/5 in 13 overs

    Another quiet over with just four singles coming from Tushar Deshpande’s over. 

  • March 22, 2024 20:52
    RCB 79/5 in 12 overs

    Mustafizur comes back into the attack. Mustafizur to Kohli, OUT! Ajinkya Rahane covers good ground to take the catch and throws it to boundary rider Rachin Ravindra before sliding over the boundary line. A brilliant presence of mind from Rahane helps CSK get a big fish in Kohli who departs after scoring 21. Anuj Rawat gets off the mark straight away with a single. Mustafizur to Green, OUT! A classic off-cutter from Mustafizur uproots the stumps after Green failed to make the most of the room. Dinesh Karthik is the new batter in at no. seven. He keeps the strike and also gets off the mark with a single as three runs come from this over. 

    Virat Kohli c Ravindra b Mustafizur Rahman 21 (20b 0x4 1x6); Cameron Green b Mustafizur Rahman 18 (22b 1x4 0x6)

    RCB 63/3 in 9 overs

    Change of ends for Deepak Chahar. Virat pulls the length ball for a single as the new man in, Glenn Maxwell gets the strike. Deepak to Maxwell, OUT! An enticing line from Deepak and Maxwell fell for it. He opened the face of the bat and edged to Dhoni behind the stumps. CSK is back and how? Cameron Green comes in at no. five and plays out the rest of the over as just one comes from it. RCB gets 42 from the PowerPlay. 

    Glenn Maxwell c Dhoni b Chahar 0 (1b 0x4 0x6)

Mustafizur varies with the pace and du Plessis plays a lofted shot over deep point and it is Rachind Ravindra who completes a brilliant catch to give CSK its first breakthrough. Big wicket. In comes the new man, Rajat Patidar at no. three. OUT! He faces two deliveries before edging one out to MS Dhoni and the CSK fans are elated! Mustafizur strikes two in his first over. 

    Faf du Plessis c Ravindra b Mustafizur Rahman 35 (23b 8x4 0x6); Rajat Patidar c Dhoni b Mustafizur Rahman 0 (3b 0x4 0x6)

    RCB 16/0 in 2 overs

    No Shivam Dube for CSK

    The all-rounder who had a season to remember in 2023 does not find a place in the CSK starting lineup. It is still possible that his hitting prowess gets him a spot as an Impact Player.

    TOSS - RCB

    RCB wins the toss and opts to bat.

    Faf du Plessis: We’ll bat first. Looks a good wicket, conditions here are a bat first wicket. I’m here with RCB and hopefully we can turn over a very good CSK team. We need to turn up now. Hopefully, injuires don’t bother us too much. Alzarri Joseph comes in tonight, got a few spinners in the middle. And since we are batting first, we’ll see how it goes.

    Ruturaj Gaikwad: I want to try and be in my shoes, not fill anybody’s shoes. I got to know last week, Sadly we are missing Conway and Pathirana. We’ve got Rachin and Mitchell coming in. Looks like a good pitch, a hard surface that should hold up well for the second innings. Our four overseas players are Daryl Mitchell, Rachin Ravindra, Mustafizur Rahman and Maheesh Theekshana. Sameer Rizvi is making his debut as well.

    It’s that time of the year again when the coastal city of Chennai drapes itself in yellow, waiting with bated breath for a glimpse of the talismanic MS Dhoni, before lapsing into a state of rapturous reverie as the Men in Yellow hit the ground.

    The home crowd will thus relish the opportunity to witness the 42-year-old kick start the Indian Premier League (IPL) with a rip-roaring contest against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) here at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium on Friday.

    The contest will also herald a new chapter in the storied history of CSK after Ruturaj Gaikwad was named captain of the team on match eve, bringing Dhoni’s role in the side under greater spotlight.
