  • After averaging 42.14 in the 2023 IPL, we are backing top order batter Ruturaj Gaikwad to be CSK’s highest run scorer against RCB. Ravindra Jadeja is a top level player with an excellent record in Chepauk. The bowling all-rounder is our pick for CSK’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Virat Kohli, the all time leading run scorer in the IPL, will return to competitive cricket in this match after missing the five-match Test series against England and is our tip for RCB’s highest run scorer on Friday. Mohammed Siraj took 19 wickets last year and the right-arm pacer is a strong choice for RCB’s top wicket taker in Match 1.
  • With 152 wickets in total across his IPL career, we recommend backing Ravindra Jadeja to take over 1.5 wickets in this tournament opener.

Weather & Pitch Report


The forecast is for consistent weather throughout Friday evening in Chepauk with the humidity levels remaining at 75% and the temperature staying at a constant 29 degrees.

Pitch Report: 

It is often a good contest between bat and ball at the MA Chidambaram Stadium with consistent bounce but also plenty of turn for the spinners. A par score is likely to be around 170-175.

Team NEWS: 

CHE Team News: 

The 2023 Champions will certainly be without Sri Lankan pace bowler Matheesha Pathirana and New Zealand opener Devon Conway for this and a number of games at the start of the tournament. Shivam Dube and Rachin Ravindra have both had niggles but should be fine for this match. 

RCB Team News: 

Unlike most of the other sides in the IPL 2024, RCB come into this opening fixture with nearly a fully fit squad and there is only a slight doubt over Rajat Patidar’s ankle. Equally, they have suffered no withdrawals across their squad so far this year.
