There will be a bit of cloud cover during the first innings which might help the seamers a bit with temperatures cooling down from 31 to 26 degrees while the humidity percentages will be between 18 to 31 percent. While there will be a cloud cover but the good news is no rain interruptions are expected.
All three IPL 2023 matches played here so far witnessed good batting wickets and we expect RCB vs CSK Match 24 to have the same type of pitches we have seen so far at this venue. The team batting first here will ideally like to score in access of 180 runs to have a good chance defending it as there is something available for the spinners in the middle overs to put a break on run-scoring and take crucial wickets. Jadeja can be threatening on this wicket.
RCB vs CSK Match 24 Probable Playing XIs
RCB bench strength got better interms of pace bowling as Josh Hazlewood has finally joined the squad but he is currently finishing his rehab and is highly unlikely to be featured for this RCB vs CSK Match 24 tonight. Interms of Impact Player we expect Anuj Rawat to again replace one of the bowlers as he has been impressive with the bat.
CSK is having some injury concerns as MS Dhoni has a problem with his knee injury but he will continue to play. Ben Stokes also had a minor toe injury so he will not be available for this game. Pathirana is likely to replace the injured Magala in the starting XI tonight. We expect Akash Singh is come in as an impact player if CSK bowls first against explosive batting lineup like RCB.

RCB vs CSK Match 24 Dream11 Prediction
We have gone batters heavy in this game while selecting our Fantasy XI because it is a good surface to bat on and it is expected to be another close game tonight.
Our best possible Dream11 team for RCB vs CSK Match 24 is mentioned below.
Wicket-Keeper – Devon Conway
Batsmen – Virat Kohli (vc), Ajinkya Rahane, Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shivam Dube
All-rounders – Ravindra Jadeja (c), Glenn Maxwell, Moeen Ali
Bowlers – Mohammad Siraj, Tushar Deshpande
Ravindra Jadeja is our captain tonight for Match 24 in IPL 2023 as we expect spinners to play a key role here in the middle overs and bowl might skid which makes bowled and LBW in play. While for vice-captaincy there are no surprises as we pick Virat Kohli in that slot mainly because of the superb batting form he is in at the moment and scoring at a rapid pace top of the order.
RCB vs CSK Match 24 Prediction
Many expert bookmakers have given a slight advantage to Chennai Super Kings to win this game mainly because of much better spin bowling resources than what Royal Challengers Bangalore got in hand. CSK has a winning probability of around 52% and it is expected both teams will love to chase on this venue so toss can play a crucial deciding factor here.
