The Chennai Super Kings and the Royal Challengers Bangalore are both franchised cricket teams set up to compete in the IPL, the Indian Premier League. In the most recent tournament, the Chennai Super Kings came out on top, winning the final against the Kolkata Knight Riders. This win is the fourth one the Chennai Super Kings have had had since the tournament was established in 2008. The Royal Challengers Bangalore have yet to win a tournament but have competed since the start and have been in three finals. However, the Chennai Super Kings are clear favorites over the Royal Challengers Bangalore, and they have won the majority of the fixtures. But that does not mean that their success is a sure thing.

History of the fixture

The IPL is a Twenty20 cricket tournament that has taken place every year since 2008. During that time, six different teams have been crowned champions, with three of those teams have won on multiple occasions. The top winning teams are the Mumbai Indians with five wins, the Chennai Super Kings with four wins, and the Kolkata Knight Riders with two wins. The Royal Challengers Bangalore are yet to win but have consistently remained a competitive force. Unfortunately, due to their lack of wins, the Royal Challengers Bangalore have been named the greatest underachievers in the tournament. They also hold the record for the highest score in a game and the lowest score in a game throughout the entire competition, which is quite a feat. they have also had many good players on their team, so perhaps luck has never been on their side

The tournament is comprised of eight teams who meet each other twice in a double round-robin style tournament. The four teams who achieve the highest amount of points at the end of these matches advances to the next stage. The Qualifier, which is reserved for the two teams with the highest point, the winner automatically goes to the final. Then the Eliminator, where the losing team is kicked out. The winner of the Eliminator and the loser of the Qualifier then play to see who goes to the final. This year saw the Chennai Super Kings win and the Royal Challengers Bangalore reach the Eliminator stage, but they got eliminated in a close match which was won by wickets rather than pint by the Kolkata Knight Riders. They are clearly a good team, but perhaps they lack that killer instinct that is needed to drive home the wins. Time is yet to tell.

The Chennai Super Kings and the Royal Challengers Bangalore have met each other head to head on 28 occasions, with the Chennai super King winning two-thirds of the games. This means that the Royal Challengers Bangalore have the talent to beat one of the best teams in the league, but it seems they lack consistency.

The Rivalry between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)

The CSK and the RCB have an active rivalry that stems from a water dispute from the Kaveri River between the states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. This rivalry is sometimes called the ‘Kaveri derby’ or the ‘South Indian derby’. Both teams have competed in the IPL since it was established in 2008 and are still competing today. They have had a total of 28 matches against each other, with the CSK winning 18 of the matches and the RCB winning nine times, with one game ending in no result. CSK had the highest score of 208 compared to the RCB’s highest score of 205. They competed in one final together in 2011, in which the final score was a pretty convincing win to CSK of 205 to 147. During that competition, however, the RCB beat the CSK in the second match of the double round-robin tournament playoff stage. The last time the RCB reached the final, they lost to the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016. It was a close game, with the RCB only losing by eight runs. The CSK was not actually yin that tournament due to the fact that they were serving a two-year ban for some controversy around their betting procedures.

During the 2021 IPL, where the CSK won, the RCB managed to make it to the Eliminator round and lost there. The matches where the CSK and the RCB met each other were evenly distributed, with both teams winning one of the games. Although the CSK are statistically the better team, the RCB are always in the mix, they play well consistently, and if they got their act together, they might finally go from the underachievers to the winners they may have always been.
