When looking at some of the teams that the Royal Challengers Bangalore have put out in the IPL, it is disappointing that they have not yet won a title. They have come close on three occasions, losing out each time in the final, which must be a hard blow to come back from. They too have some stars of Indian cricket on their team though, including captain Virat Kohli. Can he finally bring success to the M. Chinnawwamy Stadium this year?

The recent form heavily favours the CSK, winning 7 out of 8 matches.

CSK vs RCB 2018

The CSK vs RCB 2018 meeting was a very low scoring one, and one that Chennai won. They put the Royal Challengers Bangalore in to bat, and they only managed 127/9 from their 20 overs, leaving Chennai with a comfortable target to reach. Parthiv Patel was top scorer for the Challengers, scoring 53 off 41 and if it weren’t for a late flurry of runs from Tim Southee, who scored 36 not out off 26 balls, then it would have been much worse for them.

Ravindra Jadeja was the star with the ball for Chennai, taking three wickets for just 18 runs in four overs. It was a real team effort with the bat, with multiple players putting in their little cameo to get the score up. Top scoring was Ambati Rayudu with 32 from 25 while MS Dhoni, one of Chennai Super Kings best players.  finished things off with 31 not out from 23 balls. Jadeja’s bowling performance was enough to land him the man of the match here, and Chennai took the points home.

CSK vs RCB 2019

The CSK vs RCB 2019 meeting is one that the Challengers will want to forget very quickly. They were embarrassed here, and when these two meet again, they will want to put that right. They were put in to bat by Chennai and managed to score 70 all out off 17.1 overs. Parthiv Patel was their top scorer with 29, and he was the only player to hit double figures on a disappointing day for the team. Both Imran Tahir and Harbhajan Singh took three wickets for the Super Kings and dominated the bowling with their spin, enough for Harbhajan to be named man of the match.

Knocking the score off was easy for Chennai, they eased their way through taking their time and won the match with the loss of just three wickets. 28 from Ambati Rayudu was their highest score, and this was a very comfortable afternoon for the home team, and a disappointing end to a game that many fans were looking forward to enjoying.

CSK vs RCB Head to Head

When looking at the CSK vs RCB head to head table, you will see that these two teams have played each other a lot. They have met 25 times, and as you will be able to see, it is the Chennai Super Kings that have the advantage.

Games played: 25

Chennai Super Kings wins: 16

Royal Challengers Bangalore wins: 8

No result: 1

If you take away the no result from this contest then the Chennai Super Kings have won exactly double the amount of games in the overall head to head as what the Royal Challengers Bangalore have. The last meeting saw a win for Royal Challengers Bangalore, but before that it was all about the dominance of Chennai. They won seven straight games in a row against Bangalore, which is the main reason why there is so much between these two on the overall figures that are above.

The Chennai Super Kings always seem to find a way to win, and this is the mentality that the Challengers need to find themselves if they want to lift their first IPL title eventually. They beat the Super Kings last time they met, but now this season is all about building on that and showing they can be a force in this competition.
