Possible Outperform players in the match 

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)

All eyes will be on Virat Kohli as he is always a player to watch. Every RCB fan enjoys his batting, and this year also all eyes are on him to see some wonderful boundaries and beautiful innings.

The second player that can outperform is Glane Maxwell. This year Maxwell is looking superbly destructive and he is in also good form. His record days all, he is the only player who is delivering consistent performance in his team year by year. 

One new player is also here, Cameron Green. RCB team has spent a whopping 17.5 crore. The team as well as fans also want justice from his innings. Although teams have also many good bowlers and batsmen. So now let's see the outperform CSK players.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

CSK is incomplete without Dhoni, as it is said Dhoni plays good innings sometimes, but he leads wonderfully every time. He is the man who helps his team in every way and finally in conquering the trophy. This year from the first match itself all eyes are on him.

We have other players too that is Daryl Mitchell. He is in good form this year. The previous year in the 2023 World Cup, he showed some excellent innings and overall scored 552 runs in the tournament. This year he is going to debut in Chennai. Another player that can outperform is Rituraj Gaikwad and Shivam Dubey. 

Who can be the winner? (CSK vs RCB) 

Guessing the possible winner is more challenging. As both teams are looking good, both are trying to start the tournament with a win. However, if you check the history of the past, as we have discussed in the article earlier, you will find that CSK’s side is looking stronger and we hope that CSK will win this match. However, RCB is also in favorable conditions to win the match. This year faf du Plessis will lead the team. This year RCB will look different and maybe these changes will help them to perform exceptionally. All in all, we thought CSK would be the possible winner for sure. Overall CSK can be the IPL 2024 winners too. 

What's the crowd saying? 

Both teams' fan bases are so strong and supportive that we can't say which team has more support. Although CSK will benefit as they are playing in Chennai on their home ground. CSK fans are excited to see MS and RCB fans are excited to see Kohli. All fans wish to see their favorite team play starting on 22nd March.
