CSK vs RCB: Teams Preview

Chennai Super Kings (CSK): CSK, led by the iconic MS Dhoni, is looking to make a strong start to their campaign. With a history of success in the IPL, they are aiming to add another title to their illustrious record. The inclusion of the supremely talented Rachin Ravindra has bolstered their lineup, making them a formidable force this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB): RCB, captained by Faf du Plessis, is determined to end their title drought. Inspired by the historic Women’s Premier League (WPL) title win under Smriti Mandhana, the team is motivated to replicate that success in the IPL. With a solid batting unit featuring the likes of Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell, RCB’s challenge will be to strengthen their bowling, particularly in the spin department.
