Chris Gayle has predicted that Royal Challengers Bengaluru will beat Chennai Super Kings in their last league match IPL 2024 even though the Bengaluru-based team suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the defending champions in the tournament’s opener last week.

The BCCI, on Monday (March 25), announced the rest of the IPL 2024 schedule. As per the complete schedule, RCB will face CSK in their last league match on May 18. The match could well decide RCB’s fate in the ongoing competition. Over the years, it has been seen how costly a defeat in the final phase of the league stage can be and RCB could very well bow out of IPL 2024 if they lose against CSK.

Chris Gayle’s prediction:

While only time will decide who will emerge victorious, Chris Gayle is confident that his former team will be able to defeat the current champions during the second meeting between the two teams in the current season. Speaking on JioCinema, the former RCB opener said that he doesn’t see CSK winning against RCB at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

“Always one of the biggest games in the IPL. I know it’s RCB’s last match of the IPL 2024 season. We don’t want to look too far into the future, but I don’t see CSK beating RCB at home. it doesn’t It matters what the circumstances are. I see RCB emerging victorious on May 18.” Chris Gayle said.

Talking about the first game between CSK and RCB in IPL 2024, the Chennai-based team won the game by six wickets. Batting first, RCB were reeling at 78 for 5 at one stage before Anuj Rawat and Dinesh Karthik’s 95-run stand helped them finish with a competitive total of 173/6.

However, the score was not a winner. In fact, CSK hardly seemed to have any kind of problem during the chase. They finally crossed the finish line in the 19th over losing only four wickets. Meanwhile, RCB will take on Punjab Kings in their second game, while CSK will take on Gujarat Titans.
