MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli are two of the most celebrated players of Indian cricket. This ensures that the franchises for which they two players play for will always have good support from the fans. A clash between these two players is just the icing on the cake. The RCB-CSK clash is one of the most awaited clashes of the IPL and the matches always created a buzz.
RCB haven’t had a good record against CSK in terms of head to head clashes. The yellow army has prevailed over the reds in a few thrilling encounters. The fact that CSK is returning after two years has created an increased demand for the tickets. A packed M. Chinnaswamy Stadium awaits both teams, with fans clamouring for every seat in the house.
Ticketgenie handled 25000 tickets and they were sold in quick time. Around 5,000 G1 and G2 Gallery stand tickets were sold out in a couple of hours at the box office on Sunday. Even the high denomination tickets valued at ₹35,000 and ₹20,000 recorded good sales. The rapid sale of tickets clearly shows that fans are eagerly waiting for the clash and a high turnout of CSK fans is also expected.
“The demand has been almost unprecedented. CSK matches have always seen high demand here, but this time it’s greater because the team is returning after two years. The second reason is that CSK’s home matches have been moved to Pune.” Vinay Mruthyunjaya, KSCA spokesperson was quoted as saying by sportstarlive.com.
Both RCB and CSK won their previous match which means that they will be full of confidence and keep to carry on the momentum. CSK is well ahead of RCB in the points table but things can quickly turnaround if they don’t continue to perform the way they are performing currently.
RCB’s star player AB De Villiers is in prime form and feels that though CSK has good supporters in the city, the home advantage will always be there for RCB. “I know that CSK has fans all over the country, and I believe they have a fair amount of support here in Bengaluru. But it will definitely be a home game for us. The crowd gets behind us when we get some momentum going. I feel the crowd will lift us a lot on Wednesday,” de Villiers added.
