CSK vs RR Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Chennai Super Kings will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 37th  match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time

In the recent few games Chennai has shown signs of a team that’s getting his mojo back. After an impressive victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad, they put up a great show against Delhi Capitals. Yes, a last over blip and missed fielding chances cost them the match but they were very good in the match. Their batsmen are slowly getting into their grooves with top 4 consistently getting runs for their team. Yes, MS Dhoni’s form is a concern but other players like Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja has stepped up to take the responsibility. Their pacers too have bowled decently in recent games but the spinners continue to be a major concern for them. Over the years CSK has banked on their spinner to choke the opposition in the middle over but this year, this has not been the case. 

Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand is really struggling as a team. Their plan to open with Ben stokes hasn’t worked till now and other players like Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler seem to have lost their form after an initial onslaught. Steve Smith played a good knock against Bangalore but he need his other players to step up to the occasion. In the bowling department, apart from Jofra Archer, none looks a bowler capable enough to pick up wickets for his team. This is an issue RR need to address as soon as possible because they’re at a stage where a couple of losses will get their campaign into jeopardy.

Chennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

Chennai might have lost their last match to Delhi, they’re most likely to stick with the same combination. MS Dhoni would want to play Imran Tahir now but the team combination is not allowing him to do so. He may, although it’s very unlikely, drop Sam Curran or Dwayne Bravo to sneak in Tahir into the playing XI

CSK Key Players

  • Faf du Plessis – Faf du Plessis played a brilliant inning against CSK and looked a man that’s hungry for runs. He can be backed to score big runs against a toothless Rajasthan bowling
  • Ambati Rayudu : Rayudu, just like Faf has been in terrific form of later and is expected to come good against Rajasthan Royals.
  • Shane Watson – Shane Watson, in the last three games seem to be getting his mojo back. Though he hasn’t played a big knock. One would assume that a big inning is just right the corner.

CSK Team Form

Chennai is coming back from a narrow defeat by the hands of Delhi capitals

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing 11

Faf du Plessis, Sam Curran, Shane Watson Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(c&wk), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo/Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, KM Asif

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Rajasthan are really struggling as a team in IPL 2020. They would want to make certain changes in their playing XI. Riyan Parag hasn’t fired in this IPL and Rajasthan might want to replace him with Yashasvi Jaiswal or Manan Vohra. In the bowling department they can swipe Jayadev Unadkat with one of the Indian pacers in the squad. They are at a stage where they have to take tough calls if they’re to get their campaign back on track. They must also push Ben Stokes down to 4 and bring Buttler back at the top 

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson started the tournament with a bang but has been quiet in the last few games. He however, is a class player and will be an integral part of RR’s batting against CSK
  • Ben Stokes – Ben Stokes knock of 41 against Delhi showed that he’s in great form. He definitely missed out with the bat against RCB but he’s a match winner on his day and will be eager to help his team get back to winning ways.
  • Jofra Archer – Jofra Archer has been thrilling for Rajasthan in the bowling department. He’s spitting venom with his bowling and will be hoping for a stellar show against CSK

 RR Team Form

With 3 wins and 6 losses, RR is going through a pretty lean patch.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler (wk), Steven Smith (c), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Tewatiya, Shreyas Gopal, Riyan Parag/Manan Vohra, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Karthik Tyagi, Jayadev Unadkat.
