RCB vs CSK 2024 Highlights: Bengaluru Qualify for Playoffs After 6th Consecutive Win

RCB vs CSK 2024 Highlights: Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bengaluru secured a 27-run thriller victory during the IPL 2024 match against Chennai Super Kings on May 19 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.

Bengaluru registered their 6th consecutive win and became the fourth team to qualify for IPL 2024 playoffs. Royal Challengers Bengaluru made a stunning comeback as they moved from the bottom of the points table to fourth position in the IPL 2024 points table. Yash Dhayal’s final over helped the side secure a 27-run difference victory in the match.

Faf du Plessis was named as the Player of the match. While speaking in the post-match conference, “What a night. Unbelievable and such a great atmosphere, such a pleasure to finish off the season with a win. Batting first, I think it was the hardest pitch I have ever played on.”

“Myself and Virat were talking about 140-150 after we came back from the rain break. The communication from the umpires was there was a lot of rain on the pitch, they wanted to push the game and that makes sense.”

“And when we came back my god, I was telling Mitch Santner it was like a day 5 pitch at Ranchi and to get 200 on that was unbelievable. In the last 6 games, the batters have batted with good intent and good strike-rate. We were slow earlier on and we wanted more intent and that was awesome.”

“We were defending 175, it got a bit close, at one stage, with MS there, I thought, oh dear, he has done it so many times. The way we bowled with the wet ball, we tried to change it. I wanted to give the Man of the Match to Yash Dayal. The way he bowled was unbelievable. For a man who’s fairly new, he deserves it.”

“[on what he told Dayal before the last over] Pace off is the best option and trust your skills and enjoy, this is what you trained for. The yorker did not work the 1st ball and he went back to pace off and it worked unbelievably well.”

“[on the crowd tonight [ It’s crazy, even when we weren’t winning the fans were here. We felt in the changeroom we felt it was something we had to get right. Coming here tonight, it was set up nicely, CSK v RCB, unbelievable atmosphere and we as a team will do a lap of honour to thank the crowd for the support.”

“It’s really important that we enjoy this, great 6 games in a row and the first goal is to get into the knockouts, enjoy this but get back to work tomorrow,” concluded du Plessis.
