RCB vs CSK: The Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face off at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday, May 18. In their previous encounter, CSK secured a convincing six-wicket victory over RCB.

This tie is going to be a crucial one in terms of who will be getting that final playoff spot this year. SRH’s match with the Gujarat Titans being washed out meant that RCB and CSk are taking each other on in sort of a knockout tie in Bengaluru on Saturday.

RCB enters the match on the back of five consecutive wins, including two successful defenses. Their playoff hopes hinge on a victory against CSK. If batting first, RCB needs to set a target and defend it with a margin of 18 runs. Conversely, if chasing, they must surpass CSK’s total within 18 overs.

CSK has won seven out of their 13 matches, with their latest triumph being a five-wicket win against Rajasthan Royals. However, CSK faces a must-win scenario to secure a playoff spot, requiring a victory over RCB.
