In match 49 of the IPL 2022, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Chennai Super Kings at Pune's MCA Stadium. It'll be Faf du Plessis vs MS Dhoni in the southern derby as the two teams look to keep up in the race to playoffs. 

CSK vs RCB: Match Details


  • Date – Wednesday, May 04, 2022
  • Time – 7:30 PM IST
  • Venue – Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune

CSK vs RCB: Match Preview:

Chennai's star opener Ruturaj Gaikwad is back amongst the runs and found great support from his partner Devon Conway in the last match. If CSK's batters continue the way they are batting, it will be tough for RCB to stop them. Ambati Rayudu, Robin Uthappa, and Ravindra Jadeja could become a nightmare for the bowlers if things go right. MS Dhoni, too, is in a good rhythm with the bat and might play an impactful cameo.

The bowling is where CSK has lagged this season. However, Mukesh Choudhary has slowly grown into the role of bowling with the new ball and in the slog overs. He is continuously chipping in with wickets. Watch out for Maheesh Theekshana in this game. 

Despite a loss in the last game, Bangalore would've been relieved to see Virat Kohli scoring a fifty. Kohli scoring a fifty could be a warning sign for the CSK bowlers and he will make sure to make more impact in this game. Glenn Maxwell hasn't been able to convert his starts to a big score, and this might be the day for him. Dinesh Karthik hasn't made much of an impact in the last three games and he too will be rearing to smack the bowlers again. 

Bowlers have done decently well this season. Either they have collectively conceded runs or picked up wickets - nowhere in between. Harshal Patel will be the player to watch out for.
