CSK vs RCB, IPL 2024 Highlights: Ruturaj Gaikwad has got off to a winning start to his tenure as Chennai Super Kings captain as they beat Royal Challengers Bengaluru by six wickets in the IPL 2024 season opener at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, Chennai. RCB were dragged to a score of New Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Ruturaj Gaikwad and his new opening partner Rachin Ravindra got the home side off to a flying start chasing 174 against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). However, CSK systematically went about knocking the target down, starting with the opening pair of Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra who got them off to a flier. ...Read More

Gaikwad eventually fell to Yash Dayal, who has come in as an Impact Player substitute for Dinesh Karthik, on 15 off as many. However, there was no respite for RCB as Ravindra continued in the same vein while Ajinkya Rahane seemed to have picked up from where he left off last season. CSK smashed 62 runs in the powerplay for the loss of one wicket. Ravindra ended up falling for 37 off 15 balls while Rahane was later dismissed thanks to a stunner of a catch from Glenn Maxwell on 27 off 19. Shivam Dube then joined Daryl Mitchell as CSK's Impact Player, coming in for Mustafizur Rahman, who was the pick of the bowlers for CSK.

Earlier, Mustafizur Rahman enjoyed a dream outing with the ball for CSK, picking up 4 wickets to rock RCB's top order. RCB were motoring along, having reached 41/0 in 4.3 overs before CSK hit back and dented their progress. Mustafizur ran riot, dismissing Faf du Plessis before dismissing Rajat Patidar and Glenn Maxwell for a duck each. Virat Kohli had moved to 21 off 20 before the fizz got him too and added a fourth in the form of Cameron Green to leave RCB reeling at 78/5. However, RCB fought back with Dinesh Karthik and Anuj Rawat putting up 95 runs off 50 balls for the sixth wicket. RCB captain du Plessis had won the toss and chosen to bat first.

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: THAT'S THAT! CSK beat RCB by six wickets

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Four leg byes off the next ball and that is the end of the game. A comfortable victory for CSK in the end and that is a winning start for Ruturaj Gaikwad as captain of the five-time champions. Dube finished unbeaten on 34 off 28, proudly seeing out and looking down on the short deliveries that RCB peppered him with, Ravindra Jadeja at the other end on 25 off 17. Rachin Ravindra with quite a knock on IPL debut, smashing 37 in just 15 balls, Mustafizur making a sensational CSK debut as well with figures of 4/29. It has been a team effort today from CSK and RCB, had it not been for DK and Rawat, would have been pummeled quite comprehensively today. They continue to be without a win against CSK at the Chepauk since 2008.

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: SIX! Dube munches on the short stuff

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: RCB have been slightly knuckle-headed in their plans to Dube today. They just kept peppering him with short deliveries and he just saw them all through. Now, Joseph sends it in short third ball of the 19th and Dube pulls it into the stands. Just two to win now.

Mar 22, 2024 11:50 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: CSK need 9 off the last 2

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Dhoni is warming up in the dressing room but it doesn't look like he will be needed today. Dube and Jadeja have calmly guided CSK through the shaky middle overs and now CSK need just 9 to win off 12.

Mar 22, 2024 11:47 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: 16 runs off the 17th over

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Dube has been peppered with short balls, it was an obvious weakness for him last season but he has patiently absorbed them all today. Joseph bangs it in short fourth ball and Dube neatly tucks past point to the boundary. Joseph almost loses the plot with the short stuff. He had sent a ball wide off the fourth ball before that boundary. Then he bowls another wide short delivery fifth ball. And then another short ball that went for four byes before finishing off with a back of a length delivery off which Dube took a single.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: CSK 156/4 in 17 overs

Mar 22, 2024 11:40 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Sloppy stuff from RCB

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Some silly cricket there and RCB hand CSK an extra run through overthrows. Throw fired in from the deep after Jadeja worked away the first ball of the 17th from Alzarri Joseph and it is a direct hit at the striker's end. Anuj Rawat then goes for a throw at the non-striker's end, misses it and it was a dozy throw anyway made long after everyone had seemingly moved on. So no one backing up and the batters take an extra run.

Mar 22, 2024 11:31 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Into the last five overs now

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: The required rate has ticked above the current rate now. CSK need 46 to win off 30 balls. Dube remains stuck on seven off 13, Jadeja on 16 off 10. The fact that these two are still around, and of course there is Thala yet to come, means that CSK are still very much the favourites.

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Mustafizur Rahman has been taken off and Shivam Dube has been brought on for CSK. CSK are motoring along at well above the required rate at the moment but RCB won't be too disheartened because of the fact they are getting wickets at regular intervals.

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: GONE! What a catch from Maxwell!

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Cam Green bowling the 11th over, the second ball is back of a length and Rahane pulls. He had hit the previous ball for a six but this time, Maxwell times his leap in the deep to perfection. He takes a reverse-cup catch over his head.

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Ravindra was replaced by his New Zealand teammate Daryl Mitchell and he is raining sixes now. Second ball of the ninth from Karn, tossed up on off and Mitchell smashes it straight back over the bowler's head, something he loves to do. He does the same to the next ball as well.

Mar 22, 2024 10:50 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: OUT! And the fun ends for Ravindra

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: The old fox Karn Sharma gets the young turk in the end. He ends that over with a length ball on middle and leg, Ravindra sweeps looking for another six but this time, he holes out at deep backward square leg. That also brings about the strategic timeout after the seventh over.

Ravindra c Patidar b Sharma 37 (15)

Mar 22, 2024 10:43 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: SIX! Rahane!

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Third ball of the sixth from Dayal, Rahane almost guides that gently over mid-off. Shot of the day for sure. Rahane on seven off five.

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: In case you missed THE MOMENT OF THE DAY…

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Oh the bond between these two! For some reason, if you missed what could quite easily be the moment of this year's IPL, here is a picture of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni to make your day. The former India teammates and captains shared a typical, and as the internet loves to call it, 'MAHIRAT' moment in between overs when Kohli was batting. Kohli put his arms around Dhoni's shoulders and as both sporting a wide smile on their faces, this wholesome moment is a sight Indian cricket fans so desperately wanted to see.

Mar 22, 2024 10:31 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: SIX! Some more luck for Ravindra

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Not everyday that you see a lucky six but one could say that is the case here for Ravindra. Last ball of the third over from Siraj, over 145kph short length delivery. Ravindra pulls it, the ball flies off the top edge and over the boundary.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: CSK 28/0 in 3 overs

Mar 22, 2024 10:29 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Yash Dayal replaces Dinesh Karthik

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: DK goes out, in comes Yash Dayal. Yes, remember him? The left-arm quick who bowled that last over to Rinku Singh last year… and got hammered for five sixes in an over. It'd been a tough night for Dayal, who clearly felt the sting of that forgettable outing. Dayal apparently lost five kilos and his mother stopped eating. However, a year later, Dayal, the first Impact Player of IPL 2024 has the opportunity to turn things around. Concedes just 5 in his first over but plenty more needed.

Mar 22, 2024 10:26 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: FOUR! Oh a beauty from Ravindra

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Siraj starts the third over with a wide. Rebowls that first ball and it is flicked away for four by Ravindra. This is a fairly good start for CSK.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: CSK 18/0 in 2.1 overs

Mar 22, 2024 10:22 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: FOUR! Lucky one for Ravindra first up!

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Inside edge but it misses the stumps and runs to the boundary. The impact player Dayal could've got a wicket off his first ball, Ravindra could've fallen for a golden duck on IPL debut. Neither happened. Length ball outside off that Ravindra tries to smash through the off side. It takes a thick edge and flies just past the off stump, beats the keeper as well.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: CSK 12/0 in 1.1 overs

Mar 22, 2024 10:20 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: FOUR!

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Length ball outside off from Siraj for the fifth delivery, Gaikwad drives it in the air between backward point and point. Dot ball after that and Gaikwad has scored eight runs in that over.

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: FOUR! OFF THE FIRST BALL!

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Short ball outside off, Gaikwad pulls it over square leg to send the first ball of CSK's innings to the boundary.

Mar 22, 2024 10:05 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: A heartening comeback from RCB

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: Du Plessis smashed 35 off 23 to get his team off to a flying start but new CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad's bowling changes helped them roar back though. Mustafizur Rahman dismantled the RCB top order, there was a little flicker from Virat Kohli and Cameron Green but that didn't amount to much. Karthik and Rawat then weathered the storm before the latter laid into Deshpande in the 18th over. It has been a good back and forth contest between the two sides but can RCB prevent CSK from chasing down 174 on a very good batting surface is the million-dollar question.

Mar 22, 2024 10:03 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: RCB 173/6 in 20 overs

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: MS Dhoni with a run out off that last ball, the old man showing that he will never lose it as far as wicketkeeping goes. Karthik misses the last one, the batters go for the single and Dhoni underarms it to the striker's end. Bull's eye and Rawat will not finish unbeaten. He has scored 48 off 25, DK unbeaten on 38 in 26 balls.

Mar 22, 2024 9:34 PM IST

CSK vs RCB IPL Live score: SIX! RCB cross 150, Rawat with a gem of an innings

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: DK goes aerial off the last ball of the 16th. RCB need so many more of those. Theekshana follows him after seeing that DK is making room but misses his length it seems, Karthik lofts it over long on.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: RCB 116/5

Mar 22, 2024 8:53 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: OUT! FIZZ GETS KOHLI!

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Big wicket as Kohli departs, Mustafizur has three and he is all over RCB at the moment. Rachin Ravindra takes his second catch as Kohli falls shortly after hitting that six. RCB sink further.

Mar 22, 2024 8:49 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: 11 overs gone

Mar 22, 2024 8:45 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: SIX! Kohli goes aerial!

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Virat Kohli with the first maximum of this season, quite fitting that. Wrong 'un for the second ball of the 10th from Theekshana, it is too short and Kohli smashes that into the stands.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: RCB 71/3 in 9.2 overs

Mar 22, 2024 8:43 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: The first timeout

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Wow this match has swung one way and another already and we are not even past the first 10 overs. Kohli is on 11 off 12, Green on 14 off 15. Jadeja and Theekshana bowled the post-powerplay overs thus far.

Mar 22, 2024 8:31 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: GONE! NOW CHAHAR GETS MAXWELL!

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: The wheels are coming off for RCB after a very good start. Now Chahar gets Maxwell for a golden duck. Maxwell looking to punch it with the open face of the bat, outside edge and Dhoni takes it.

Maxwell c Dhoni b Chahar 0 (1)

CSK vs RCB Live Score: RCB 42/3 in 5.3 overs

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: OUT! 2 in the over for Mustafizur!

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: What a bowling change that is from captain Gaikwad. He brings in the Fizz for the fifth over and it has worked like a charm. Rajat Patidar falls for a duck.

Patidar c Dhoni b Mustafizur Rahman 0 (3)

CSK vs RCB Live Score: RCB 41/2 in 5 overs

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: One could be forgiven for forgetting that Kohli is playing at the moment as well. He has faced just four balls thus far in four overs, scoring three runs. Du Plessis has raced to 31 off 20. A quiet fourth over though, just four runs off it.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: RCB 37/0 in 4 overs

Mar 22, 2024 8:15 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: BACK TO BACK FOURS! Du Plessis motoring along

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Well Deepak Chahar has been quite predictable thus far and is not making it any easier for his new young captain. Pitches up third ball of the third over, a pretty good delivery that to be fair, Du Plessis sends it away with a back-foot drive over mid-off. Then Chahar goes shorter next ball, Du Plessis saw it coming from miles away, gets on the backfoot and sends it over cover.

Mar 22, 2024 8:12 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Faf dealing in boundaries

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Ah! Delightful from Faf again. On the pads from Deshpande and all he has to do it clip it with that majestic timing of him. FOUR. The next ball however troubles him as Du Plessis went for the pull but the ball stayed low. But it doesn't matter. Next ball is dispatched through the covers again for the second four of the over. Even Virat acknowledged it.

Mar 22, 2024 8:10 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: FOUR!

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Du Plessis with the first boundary of the IPL and it has come off the fifth ball of the first over. Big inswinger from Chahar, put away with an elegant cover-drive by the former South African captain. A single off the next ball and Du Plessis is on five off as many. Kohli on one off one.

CSK vs RCB Live Score: RCB 7/0 after 1 over

Mar 22, 2024 8:06 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: The players walk out!

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Here is Du Plessis and here is Kohli. Deepak Chahar bowling the first over. All set but wait a second. We have no umpires! Virender Sharma and Saiyed Khalid walk out well after the fielding team is done with its huddle and are waiting at their positions.

Gaikwad spins it, Faf du Plessis wins it and RCB are batting first.

Mar 22, 2024 7:38 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Toss delayed

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: For reasons that only those delaying the toss know. The captains have been standing out there for about 10 minutes now, it should have happened at 7.30pm and now we are close to 10 minutes past that time.

Mar 22, 2024 7:33 PM IST

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: Dhoni's long hair

CSK vs RCB Live Score, IPL 2024, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru: It really isn't being spoken about so here we are, speaking about it. Fans of a certain vintage would remember Dhoni's long hair bursting on to the scene just as much as the player himself did back in the mid-2000s, with even heads of states commenting on it. Then that hair disappeared after the 2007 T20 World Cup but now, here he is, with waving locks once again all those years later. There is speculation that this could be Dhoni's last year in the IPL, which also would mean the last year of his professional career. Is it a case of him deciding to go out the way he came, long hair and all?

Mar 22, 2024 7:25 PM IST
