In IPL 2023, RCB and CSK will meet only once in the tournament, unlike earlier times when the teams would play one game each in Bengaluru and Chennai.
As per IPL 2023 format, the 10 teams are divided into two groups of five each. The teams will play a total of 14 matches each on a home/away basis. A team will play the five teams in the other group twice while only once against the four teams in its own group.
With RCB and CSK in the same group, fans will get to watch their favourite franchises only once in the league phase in IPL 2023. If both teams qualify for playoffs, there could be a possibility of meeting again.
With RCB’s latest tweet, many fans were wondering why the franchise had announced box office sales for RCB vs CSK tickets.
According to RCB’s tweet on March 29, RCB vs CSK match tickets for Gallery Stand (H Stand) priced at Rs 1,201 would be on sale at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium counter (Gate 2) from April 16.
Now, there is no clarity on the same. Many IPL fans are still making a lot of enquiries to watch RCB vs CSK game in Bengaluru on Monday (April 17).
