All forces will converge at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, on (Friday) March 22, as defending champions Chennai Super Kings will take on Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the inaugural game of IPL 2024. Both teams met just once last time as CSK emerged victorious in a run-fest amidst the jampacked Bengaluru crowd. RCB will walk cautiously into the game with a record worth not flaunting against CSK. 

Mahendra Singh Dhoni will potentially call it quits with the culmination of IPL 2024. CSK will ride on momentum from the previous year’s championship. Their auction strategy was spot on as they acquired the services of Rachi Ravindra and Daryll Mitchell in a steal deal. However, RCB’s auction this year was a mixed bag as they couldn’t bolster their bowling line-up with significant names, an aspect they seemed to have lacked since previous seasons.

Pitch Report:

The Chepauk pitch displays wear and tear with a solid deck. As a result, it assists spinners as well as the pacers who have the variations at their disposal. Batters will have to fetch the runs from the relatively low bounce off the strip. On the weather front, there will be clear skies in Chennai on Friday evening, with temperatures hovering around 29 degrees. Humidity might be a factor for the teams as it does not seem to drop from 75 percent.
