CSK vs RCB Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the 19th match of IPL 2021.
The 19th match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai tomorrow.
The first match of the third IPL 2021 double-header will also be a South Indian derby. Given the loyal fan-following of both the franchises, expect the match to be among the most followed games of this season as former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and current India captain Virat Kohli will clash at the Wankhede Stadium.
Another reason why this match will be closely followed is that it will be a top of the table clash. With three victories in four matches as of now, Super Kings are placed at the second position on the points table. Royal Challengers, on the other hand, continue to retain their top position after being the only unbeaten team in IPL 2021 till now.
What’s the scariest sight in the world you ask?

While Bangalore would want to build on their winning streak to register their best-ever starts to the Indian Premier League, Chennai would be banking on their previous stellar record against their arch-rivals.
