Rain Gods Threaten to Wash Out RCB vs CSK Thriller!


Weather Threatens RCB vs CSK Match: Reduced Overs or Washout Possible?

Neha . May 18, 2024

In what promises to be their most significant IPL 2024 encounter, RCB takes on CSK on Saturday at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. They no longer have time to play it safe because there is just one playoff position available, but they will unavoidably need to win big on Sunday in order to finish in the top four.

It may sound unbelievable, but after struggling early in the season, RCB managed to win five straight games and tie CSK in the last tough match of the IPL. They are now two points behind the Mumbai Indians and have a somewhat worse NRR (Net Run Rate) than they would like.

Nonetheless, rain warning arises ahead of the game in Bengaluru, the authorities issuing a ‘Yellow Alert’ in the city as a result of the terrible weather conditions.

Bengaluru saw very little rainfall on Thursday and generally gloomy weather on Friday. Because of this, however, spectators will not be able to see a 20-over match on Saturday.


In the late evening, there is an 87 percent probability of thunderstorms, according to the Accuweather weather app. Even if it didn't rain early this morning, the weather is probably going to become worse.

Both teams will receive one point apiece in the event of a washout, giving CSK and RCB, respectively, 15 and 13 points.

With 14 points from 13 games, CSK is presently ranked fourth on the points table, while Royal Challengers Bengaluru is ranked seventh with 12 points from the same number of games. Additionally, CSK's net run rate of 0.528 is higher than RCB's 0.387.
