On Saturday, May 18, the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) will host the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 67th match of IPL (Indian Premier League) 2024 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

RCB will fully commit to their upcoming match against CSK, as it will be a do-or-die encounter for them. RCB recently secured their fifth consecutive win, defeating the Delhi Capitals by 47 runs. Currently placed seventh on the points table, RCB is eager to seize this final opportunity to qualify for the playoffs.

On the other hand, Chennai won’t be under much pressure as they are comfortably sitting in the fourth position with a positive Net Run Rate of 0.528. They defeated the Rajasthan Royals in the last game by five wickets. CSK will look forward to continuing their winning momentum in this knockout match and solidifying their spot in the playoffs.

On that note, here are the three differential picks you can opt for in the upcoming RCB vs CSK Dream11 match.

Yash Dayal has been the leading wicket-taker for RCB. He has claimed 13 wickets in 12 matches at an impressive economy of 8.8. He picked up a three-wicket haul in the previous game against the Delhi Capitals and would be eager to bowl a similar spell today.

Yash had also picked up a wicket against CSK in the 2024 IPL season-opener at Chepauk. He will be aiming to grab a few more in the upcoming game.

#2 Rajat Patidar (RCB) - 8.0 credits

Rajat Patidar has rediscovered his form, bolstering RCB's top-order significantly. He has hit four half-centuries in his last five innings. He scored his fifth half-century, the second consecutive, in the previous game against DC.

Though he was dismissed for a duck in the reverse fixture against CSK this season, his current form suggests he will be aiming for a strong comeback in the upcoming game in Bengaluru.

#1 Rachin Ravindra (CSK) - 7.0 credits

Rachin Ravindra did not meet expectations in the tournament, managing only 161 runs across nine matches. His highest score was a 46-run innings against the Gujarat Titans, and he has struggled to impress afterward.

However, Rachin top-scored for CSK in his debut against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru, hitting 37 runs off 15 balls, with three fours and three sixes. Therefore, he has the potential to deliver another strong performance in the upcoming game and prove to be a valuable pick in your RCB vs CSK Dream11 teams.
