The 24th game of the IPL 2023 will see a blockbuster clash between the two southern teams. On Monday, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on the Chennai Super Kings at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. RCB is coming off a win, while CSK lost their last game in a close finish.
But both teams had two wins out of their four games, respectively. These two teams had some big superstars in their lineups, which will make this contest worth watching. Meanwhile, two iconic Indian superstars will also come face-to-face in the game. Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni will do all they can to take their team home.
Meanwhile, Virat has been in great form, and all eyes will be on him on Monday. He also has some good records against CSK and is expected to perform well. Here, we will look at the top three records of Virat against the four-time champions.
1. Second-Most Runs against CSK
The former RCB captain has been the most prolific run-scorer in the competition and has scored runs against every IPL team. But against CSK, he has played a number of brilliant innings and has a great track record. In fact, Virat is the second-highest run-getter against CSK. He has made 979 runs in 29 innings and needs 51 runs to top the list. Shikhar Dhawan is at the top with 1029 runs.
2. Most IPL half-centuries against CSK
Virat has played a number of match-winning knocks against CSK. He has always liked to perform against the best. Virat will be up and running once he faces CSK on Monday. Notably, he has a brilliant record against MS Dhoni and his men, including the record for most half-centuries in the IPL. Virat has scored nine half centuries against CSK, which is the most by an opponent against them.
3. Most Runs vs CSK as Captain
Though the number suggests something else, Virat Kohli was a brilliant performer as the captain of his team. However, the biggest missing link in his leadership is an IPL trophy. But the statistics confirm that Virat has always performed well as a captain. He has also scored the most runs against CSK as a captain in the IPL. The former RCB skipper has scored 567 runs against Chennai as captain of the team. Though he is not the captain, he will be eager to continue his form against CSK.
