Betting Tips
  • CSK were found wanting in their first game against Delhi Capitals but cruised to victory against Punjab Kings. With the bat, Suresh Raina is their only player to have hit a half-century so far, making 54 from 36-balls against Delhi. However, such was their low target against Punjab Kings, it didn’t lend itself to multi half-centuries, Moeen Ali contributing a match winning 46 to back up his 36 in the first game. With the ball, they flopped against Delhi, taking only 3 wickets in the game. But responded brilliantly against Punjab Kings, Deepak Chahar with 4-13 and delivering a maiden over.
  • Rajasthan Royals’ captain Sanju Samson is the only player so far in the tournament to make a three figure score. His 63-ball 119 included 19 boundaries and came in the defeat to Punjab Kings. David Miller hit a match winning 62 against Delhi Capitals, his first IPL appearance of the season, rescuing the Royals from 17-3 in their successful pursuit of 148. Chetan Sakariya exploded onto the IPL with figures of 3-31 on debut against Punjab Kings. Jaydev Unadkat has also impressed with the ball, leading the charge against Delhi Capitals with the top order wickets of Shaw, Dhawan and Rahane and finishing with figures of 3-15 from 4 overs.
  • Chennai are yet to give overseas players Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir, Lungi Ngidi and Jason Behrendorff a run out. The Royals are yet to call upon Liam Livingstone, Andrew Tye or the injured Jofra Archer who may become available later in the campaign.

CSK vs RR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals go head to head in the third game for each side in this year’s IPL. They both lost their first games but bounced back against Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals respectively to get up and running. Read on as we preview this clash of the 2021 IPL. The match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai and will get underway at 19:30 local time.

CSK were found wanting in their first game against Delhi Capitals but cruised to victory against Punjab Kings. With the bat, Suresh Raina is their only player to have hit a half-century so far, making 54 from 36-balls against Delhi. However, such was their low target against Punjab Kings, it didn’t lend itself to multi half-centuries, Moeen Ali contributing a match winning 46 to back up his 36 in the first game. With the ball, they flopped against Delhi, taking only 3 wickets in the game. But responded brilliantly against Punjab Kings, Deepak Chahar with 4-13 and delivering a maiden over.

Rajasthan Royals’ captain Sanju Samson is the only player so far in the tournament to make a three figure score. His 63-ball 119 included 19 boundaries and came in the defeat to Punjab Kings. David Miller hit a match winning 62 against Delhi Capitals, his first IPL appearance of the season, rescuing the Royals from 17-3 in their successful pursuit of 148. Chetan Sakariya exploded onto the IPL with figures of 3-31 on debut against Punjab Kings. Jaydev Unadkat has also impressed with the ball, leading the charge against Delhi Capitals with the top order wickets of Shaw, Dhawan and Rahane and finishing with figures of 3-15 from 4 overs.

Chennai are yet to give overseas players Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir, Lungi Ngidi and Jason Behrendorff a run out. The Royals are yet to call upon Liam Livingstone, Andrew Tye or the injured Jofra Archer who may become available later in the campaign.

Losing to Delhi Capitals was no disgrace, but eyebrows were certainly raised across the globe by the way CSK demolished Punjab Kings. Built upon the exception bowling performance from Deepak Chahar, all his team-mates backed him up, Sam Curran (4.00), Ravindra Jadeja (4.75), Moeen Ali (5.67) and Dwayne Bravo (5.00) all chipping in with impressive economy rates. The more teams they can restrict to 106 from 20 overs, the more wins for CSK.

In spite of losing Ben Stokes for the rest of the tournament after only one game and with Jofra Archer already crocked, Rajasthan Royals showed incredible character to beat the impressive Delhi Capitals. Sanju Samson has already shown what he can do with the bat, if they can get Jos Buttler firing as well then they can still be a match for any team.

CSK vs RR Match Toss Prediction

We finally saw a captain electing to bat first after winning the toss in the Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad game. However, we expect whoever calls correctly to choose to chase after their wins doing as such in the last games.

CSK vs RR Match Pitch Report

Apart from Punjab Kings’ efforts against CSK, The Wankhede Stadium is the ground providing the highest scores in the tournament so far. We expect the batsmen on both sides to enjoy the conditions..

CSK vs RR Prediction

Chennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

After their comprehensive win over Punjab Kings, we expect CSK to select the same XI for this game. Ruturaj Gaikwad is yet to come close to matching his runs from his debut season last year but should get another go at the top of the order.

CSK Key Players

  • Moeen Ali - the England all-rounder is leading the runs list for CSK after 2 games. He is averaging 41.00 with a strike rate of 149.09 and bowled very tidily in the win against Punjab Kings.
  • Sam Curran - he has already been promoted up the order from number 8 in the first game to number 6. His strike rate is currently at 205.26 and he could be an option at the top of the order should they choose to leave out Gaikwad.
  • Deepak Chahar - the medium pacer almost single handedly ripped out the top half of Punjab Kings’ top order. He took the wickets of numbers 2, 3, 4 and 5 in the space of 3 overs and CSK were always in charge from then on.

CSK Team Form

CSK won their final three games at the end of the 2020 IPL so carried more momentum than most into this campaign. Their big win against Punjab Kings was a statement to the rest of the tournament to say they have arrived.

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c) (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Without Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, the Rajasthan Royals’ team sheet has an unfamiliar look to it but they have stoically got on with the job in hand. The batting order still needs some finalising but they have plenty of options in this department.

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson - the only man to hit a century so far in the IPL 2021 has his hands full with the captaincy and keeping wicket. However, he has consistently performed well in the IPL since 2013 and his batting numbers are on the rise.
  • Jos Buttler - yet to really come to the party in either of the two games so far, Buttler is the master at pulling a match-winning performance after a run of poor returns. Don’t be surprised if that performance is in this game.
  • David Miller - not many players can come out of quarantine and straight into the team to replace Ben Stokes with such success. His 62 brought back memories of IPL 2013 when he averaged 59.71 and hit 101* from 38 balls in one game.

RR Team Form

it’s hard to judge their form from before this IPL when they had Stokes and Archer as integral members of the side. However, the win against Delhi Capitals has shown that they are capable of beating the top teams even without some star names.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler, Manan Vohra, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), David Miller, Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris, Rahul Tewatia, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

CSK vs RR Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and Sam Curran to cause problems for the Rajasthan Royals batsmen. If Chahar can produce even half of what he did against Punjab Kings then CSK will be in business again.

For Rajasthan Royals we have gone with Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman and Chetan Sakariya. Rahman has had a quiet start to the 2021 season but impressed with 2-29 against Delhi Capitals.

Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Prediction

Rajasthan Royals will have been delighted to prove they could win games without Ben Stokes at the first time of asking and remove it as a stick to hit them with. However, without other players finding form, it is hard to see how they can win this game. We expect CSK to continue their good form and notch up another win against Rajasthan Royals.

Final Verdict

Chennai Super Kings are favorites to win against Rajasthan Royals at odds of 1.87

CSK vs RR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Jos Buttler (9.5) and Sanju Samson (9.5) will be our wicketkeepers. Both failed with the bat during the win against Delhi Capitals but will be keen to produce runs this time.

  • Batsmen

    Suresh Raina (9.5), David Miller (9) and Faf du Plessis (10) are our batsmen. du Plessis quietly found his form in the last game and is now ready to show his worth.

  • All-rounders

    We’ve selected Ravindra Jadeja (9), Moeen Ali (9) and Sam Curran (9) as our all-rounders. An all CSK line-up, all three have performed well in both disciplines already in the tournament.

  • Bowlers

    Jaydev Unadkat (8.5) Deepak Chahar (8.5) and Shardul Thakur (8.5) make up our bowling attack. Unadkat and Chahar have already produced big performances, Thakur now needs to do the same.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Sanju Samson will be captain, his deputy will be Moeen Ali

CSK vs RR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Suresh Raina, David Miller, Faf du Plessis

  • All Rounder:Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali(vc), Sam Curran

  • Wicket Keeper:Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson(c)

  • Bowler:Jaydev Unadkat, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur

Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Top Picks for Today's Match

Top Picks for Today's match is Sanju Samson who scored a brilliant hundred in the first game of RR. Suresh Raina is another batsman who is the most consistent batsman for CSK and is the best pick. Faf Du Plessis is the best batsman in this format who has a mix of responsibility and aggression. He knows when to play defensively and when to attack.

MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina Getting Close to Another Milestone in their IPL Journey

MS Dhoni will play his 200th IPL Match as the captain of the CSK team. Currently, he has captained CSK in 199 matches. He also needs two more dismissals to get to 150 dismissals. He has 39 stumpings and 109 catches so far. Two more sixes for Suresh Raina in today's match will take him to 200 IPL sixes.

The Possible Change in Rajasthan Royals Batting Line up

Rajasthan Royals can make a change in their batting lineup. They could draft in Yashashvi Jaiswal in the opening slot in place of Manan Vohra who was not able to score in the first two matches for the team. David Miller is likely to retain his place after his 62 in the last game which helped RR to open their account on the points table.

Can Ngidi Make His Place in Playing X1 for Today's Match?

Lungi Ngidi has not been able to make it into playing XI of CSK since arriving from South Africa. The CSK foreign players have been performing well so he might not be able to make it in playing X1 yet but a change of venues after some games might make CSK think tank to make him play in playing X1.

    Chennai wil be high on confidence with an impressive win over punjab kinds in thir second match and they will look for consecutive win by beating rajasthan

    Sanju sampson has to play an inning like first match to help rajasthan get a win against csk

  • Looknath borman

    Chennai Super Kings are finding their groove and Deepak Chahar was back to his best last time. WE expect it to be a close match as both team don't have a great bowling line up and all the difference would be their batting

    Butler should open the innings for RR. He is best at the top and can play long innings and other batters can play around him.
