RCB vs CSK head to head IPL record: Stats, total matches and history  

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has boasted of some of the best players in the business, including Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Mitchell Starc and many others. Yet, they have failed to get their hands on the IPL trophy even once since the inception of the tournament back in 2008.

Currently, Faf du Plessis is their skipper and he would be looking to change the fortunes of the team, although the task would not be easy by any stretch of the imagination.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK), on the other hand, have five titles to their names and have shown how lethal they have been over the years. Under the leadership of MS Dhoni, CSK have gained a fanbase, not only in India, but across the globe.

On the head-to-head count, CSK clearly have had the upper hand over RCB. Out of their 31 meetings until now, the Super Kings won 20 times while the Challengers finished on the winning side 10 times.

The Super Kings beat RCB by eight runs when the two teams last met at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Devon Conway won the Player of the Match award for scoring 83 runs off 45 balls.
