Bengaluru weather forecast for RCB vs CSK match



Last Updated on 1 week by Charbel Coorey

The Bengaluru weather is in the spotlight ahead of the blockbuster clash between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Rain has been falling consistently in Bengaluru in recent days, and more is forecast for the rest of this week. This includes Saturday, which is when the big match is scheduled to take place.

According to the hourly forecast, there is a 34% chance of precipitation from 7-9pm, which then increases to 37%. From 10-11pm, the chances increase to around 50%. However, this may change closer to the time.

If it does rain then stop, the ground can be readied in quick time as the M Chinnaswamy Stadium has an excellent drainage system.

Interestingly, rain was expected in Bengaluru at a very similar juncture in IPL 2023. RCB took on Gujarat Titans in the final game of the regular season, whereby Faf du Plessis’ team had to win to qualify for the playoffs. The rain stayed away as GT prevailed thanks to a superb Shubman Gill ton.

This upcoming RCB-CSK clash holds huge importance, with the match effectively a playoff before the playoffs. Should RCB win, they could leapfrog CSK provided they win by a big enough margin to overtake them on net run rate. Another scenario is if SRH lose their remaining two games against GT and PBKS respectively, both RCB and CSK could make the playoffs.

If it’s a no result, CSK will go through with 15 points and RCB will unfortunately be eliminated with 13 points.
