Rajasthan Team News

Rajasthan Royals are heading in this game after beating Delhi Capitals by 3 wickets, thanks to the heroics of Chris Morris. The Protean turned the game around for his side, giving them the much-needed victory.

It wasn’t just Morris who starred in the match that day; David Miller scored a handsome half-century to add to the target chase. Meanwhile, in bowling, Jaydev Unadkat and Mustafizur Rahman did their part in dismantling Delhi’s batting order.

That said, the team can still benefit from some work in the batting lineup. Following the departure of Ben Stokes to injury, there is a gap in batting that needs to be filled.

Jos Butler and Manan Vohra are yet to fire on all cylinders while Sanju Samson continues to do his part as the captain to lead the team. He scored a handsome ton in the first match but did flop in the second.

Moreover, there is still quite a bit of inexperience in Rajasthan Royal’s batting roster, and with no international alternatives available yet, the pressure will be high on the Indian stars.

Likely XI: Vohra, Miller, Samson, Buttler, Dube, Parag, Tewatia, Morris, Unadkat, Sakariya, Rahman.

Chennai Team News

There are some positives for Chennai Super Kings, following their win over Punjab Kings last week. Deepak Chahar stole the show that day with his 4-13 in 4 overs.

That allowed CSK to restrict Punjab to a low total of just 106 runs. In return, Faf du Plessis and Moeen Ali responded well and took the game by 6 wickets with over 4 overs to spare.

For the upcoming game, it is fair to expect Chennai to go ahead with the same playing XI. If anything, Ruturaj Gaikwad may be swapped for Cheteshwar Pujara as the former is yet to impress with the bat.

MS Dhoni can also go with the likes of Robin Uthappa or Mitchell Santner to hand them their first IPL starts of the season.

Lungi Ngidi may also get a start here, possibly at the expense of Curran as the South African pacer has completed his quarantine and is in training with the team.

Likely XI: Pujara, du Plessis, Ali, Raina, Rayudu, Jadeja, Dhoni, Curran, Brav0, Thakur, Chahar

Venue & conditions

The last couple of matches in Mumbai have been low-scoring ones but this is a ground where it is easy to pick up runs if you are having a good day.

It is a flat track and hence, only natural to expect some fireworks from both sides. Any score above 160-170 would be a good one for the side batting first, with dew likely to make things difficult in the second innings.

CSK vs RR Head-to-Head

Chennai hold a good lead over Rajasthan in the head-to-head tally, having beaten them 14 out of 23 times. It is certainly not surprising to see this from the eight-time IPL finalists.

Toss Winner

When it comes to the toss, we see an entirely opposite trend. Rajasthan Royals have won the toss 14 times and for this game, we are inclined to stick to the trend.

Chennai vs Rajasthan Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back CSK to win @ 1.87 with Betway

Chennai Super Kings look much more composed when compared to Rajasthan Royals; after all, they don’t have to worry about filling in the voids left by Jofra Archer or Ben Stokes.

Additionally, CSK have also got many prolific players in Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, and Ravindra Jadeja while Rajasthan Royals are banking upon Samson to guide the team and possibly motivate the seemingly inexperienced batsmen.

In their game against Punjab Kings, Ali and du Plessis scored 82 runs together, thus restoring some confidence in their batting order. Raina is yet to find his spirit but as the highest run-scorer for Chennai, he is never too far away from batting a good inning.

As for Rajasthan Royals, they are likely to face some problems with their inconsistency. Plus, when we compare their players to CSK’s, they may seem a bit inferior and inexperienced, at least on paper. This may also translate into a slight psychological disadvantage for the Rajasthan side.

Rajasthan Royals Total Fours: Over 14.5

Recommended Bet: RR Total Fours in the Match Over 14.5 @ 1.95 with Betway

In the first match, the Royals scored 22 fours, 12 of which came from Samson’s bat.

In the second game, they hit only 12 but in their defence, that was a match dominated heavily by the bowlers.

All in all, Rajasthan Royals do have a decent enough batting line-up to hit a good number of boundaries, especially if the likes of Miller, Morris, and Samson find their rhythm again on Monday.

Today’s CSK vs RR Hot Bet

Recommended bet: CSK Top Batsman: Suresh [email protected] 5.50 with 10CRIC

Suresh Raina was the top batsman for CSK in the game against Delhi Capitals, scoring 54 off 36 deliveries.

He has also scored the most number of runs for Chennai against Rajasthan Royals through the years in the IPL. Raina has also been sweating hard in training and after missing out on the tournament for the entirety of 2020, he is more than keen on proving his mettle again.

Lastly, du Plessis and Ali have also got a decent chance to be the top batsman for CSK but Raina is available at far better odds.

CSK vs RR fun statistics

  • Raina has scored an impressive 638 runs against Rajasthan Royals in 22 matches
  • In bowling, Jadeja and Bravo have picked up 15 wickets each against the RR in the IPL
  • Rajasthan Royals won both the legs against CSK last season
