On May 4, CSK and RCB will face off in IPL 2022 match 49 at Pune. This is the rematch between the two clubs, as CSK defeated RCB earlier in the season.
In this match, Chennai is ranked ninth in the points table, while RCB is ranked fifth. With MS Dhoni back as captain, Chennai has an advantage against Bangalore.
Prior to their encounter against SRH, CSK needed to win all of their remaining six matches. MS Dhoni’s return to captaincy spurred the team to victory over a team that had beaten them earlier in the season. They are very much alive currently as they take on an RCB side that is short on confidence after losing their last three games.
RCB, on the other side, has squandered all of their momentum after losing their last three games. When they were bowled out for 68 by SRH, their batting line-up took a severe hit, and they haven’t recovered since. Virat Kohli regained to form in the final game of the season, scoring his first fifty of the season against Gujarat Titans. Kohli must maintain his current form in order for his team to have a chance to make the playoffs.
