RR vs CSK – IPL – Team Previews
Rajasthan will be looking to bounce back against the Chennai Super Kings after losing their previous two matches. They have won four out of the seven matches they have played so far this season.
Jos Buttler’s form has been inconsistent in the last two innings, scoring only 40 runs, including two ducks, despite having scored 244 runs this season. Despite this, Rajasthan has not tended to depend on the toss when selecting their XIs. One question mark surrounding the Royals’ strategy is their use of Jason Holder as a batter.
He has only faced two balls in the seven matches played so far. In their last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, when they needed 10 runs off two balls, they sent Abdul Basith ahead of Holder, despite Ashwin being dismissed. Although they have lost their last two matches by a narrow margin, Rajasthan is unlikely to make any changes to their playing XI.
Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings have been in excellent form lately, winning their last three games convincingly. Despite facing injury setbacks, CSK has managed to maintain its winning streak.
The team will be relying on the exceptional form of Ajinkya Rahane, who has already scored 209 runs in five matches at a remarkable strike rate of 199.05. If the pitch is slow, there might be a possibility of bringing in Mitchell Santner for Matheesha Pathirana.
However, CSK has had success with a fixed combination in their last three matches. Unfortunately, Ben Stokes has suffered another setback on his road to recovery and Deepak Chahar is unlikely to return to action soon.
RR vs CSK – IPL – Probable Playing XI’s
Rajasthan Royals: Y Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, S Hetmyer, Ravi Ashwin, Holder, R Parag, S Samson (Cap), Dhruv Jurel, Trent Boult, Yuzi Chahal, Sandeep Sharma, Adam Zampa
Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, D Conway, A Rahane, Moeen Ali, Ravi Jadeja, S Dubey, Mitch Santner, Sisanda Magala, MS Dhoni (Cap), R Hangargekar, Tushar Deshpande
RR vs CSK – IPL – Pitch Report and Toss Prediction
The game in Jaipur will be played on a pitch that is expected to produce a low-scoring and thrilling encounter. This will be the second match of the season to be held in Jaipur, with the first game featuring LSG and RR. Despite chasing a modest target of 155 runs in that game, the Royals failed to secure a win. The average first innings score in the last five T20 games at this venue has been 125.
RR vs CSK – IPL – Win Prediction
Rajasthan will be desperate for a win after losing two on the trot and this desperation might pull them through in this game.
