There is a threat of rain in the CSK vs RCB match If the match is canceled due to rain, one point each will be divided between the two teams.

New Delhi. The teams of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings will face each other in a virtual knockout match on Saturday. There is a threat of rain on this much awaited IPL match to be played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. The team that wins this match will become the last team to enter the playoffs. The teams of Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad have reached the playoffs, while who will occupy the remaining one place will be decided after the RCB vs CSK match. If this match is canceled due to rain then Chennai Super Kings will get the playoff ticket while RCB will be out.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has now reached the playoffs after Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals after the match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans was canceled due to rain. Now there is a tug of war for only one place and two teams CSK and RCB are in the race. Chennai Super Kings' claim is strong due to better run rate and more points (13 points and 0.528 run rate). They have lost to RCB only once in 8 matches on this ground. Whereas RCB has 12 points and its net run rate is 0.387.

If the match is washed out due to rain then CSK will benefit.
The weather department has predicted rain on the match day i.e. Saturday. If the match does not take place, Chennai will qualify for the playoffs as they will have 15 points from 14 matches while RCB will finish with 13 points from 14 matches. If the match had been played, RCB would have had to win by at least 18 runs or 11 balls remaining. RCB is in excellent form at the moment. Breaking the losing streak of 6 matches, it has recorded five consecutive wins. Orange Cap holder Virat Kohli is in excellent form and has scored half-centuries in three of the last five matches. A good innings will be expected from captain Faf du Plessis, who could not reach double figures in the last two matches.

CSK captain is in unmatched form
Captain Ruturaj Gaikwad has scored the most runs for Chennai Super Kings this season and he is expected to maintain this momentum. Opener Rachin Ravindra has also played useful innings. Shivam Dubey, who failed in the last four innings, is also expected to perform well. In bowling, fast bowlers Simarjit Singh and Tushar Deshpande have performed well. The team is missing Mustafizur Rahman, Mathisha Pathirana and Deepak Chahar. The presence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a source of inspiration for Chennai but it remains to be seen how much he can contribute amid the injury.

This is the weather forecast for RCB vs CSK match
According to weather website Accuweather, the sky is expected to be cloudy in the evening on the day of the match to be played between RCB and CSK. The sky will be completely covered with clouds. 7.2 mm rainfall is expected. The temperature is expected to be around 23 degrees.
