CSK vs RR IPL Match Prediction and Analysis
It will be interesting to see if this trend of winning the team continues in the upcoming matches as well. The Chennai Super Kings are set to take on the Rajasthan Royals by the next day in the tournament, which will be a necessary win for both sides.
Both suffered losses in their previous matches and will now need to win almost every match to qualify from here. With the tournament in existence, we expect the two sides to pull out of all the blazing cannons in this upcoming competition, to be played on 19 October 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings Team Preview
Chennai Super Kings (CSK):
Despite having a majority of players at a high level on the age-factor, the Chennai Super Kings is known for setting high fitness and fielding standards on the field. However, this was not his most recent match against the Delhi Capitals and resulted in his loss.
With that defeat, they advanced to sixth place on the ladder and would need to make the most of their remaining five matches to progress to the next round. While Chennai has come close to their full eleven, the execution and some awkward decisions have certainly been the reason for their downfall.
Bringing Kedar Jadhav for Piyush Chawla against Delhi Capital made little sense as Jadhav did not get a chance to contribute and CSK finally got a bowler. Although Bravo’s injury extension is still uncertain, we can finally see Josh Hazlewood for the Super Kings in the upcoming match.
Rajasthan Royals (RR):
Along with Kings XI Punjab, Rajasthan Royals are undoubtedly the most unexpected side of the tournament. They have managed to win through disappointing situations and have lost matches which they should have won with remarkable ease.
Due to this unpredictability, he is currently ranked second from the bottom position on the ladder and will need to play out of his skins to qualify from here. He definitely has the team to do so and it will be interesting to see how things pan out to move forward. Their inconsistent strategy is probably the biggest reason for Rajasthan’s inconsistency in the tournament.
They have tweaked the situation a bit and the players are not really suited to the important roles they have to play. The decision to open with Robin Uthappa against Royal Challengers proved to be a masterstroke as RR got his best powerplay of the tournament in which Uthappa blew all the guns. Having said that, Ben Stokes looks a bit uncertain at the top and we may soon see Jose Butler back at the top order.
CSK VS RR Win and Toss Prediction
Deciding on the toss is definitely going to be difficult for both sides. While teams have previously enjoyed success in batting here more often than not, the trend is being shifted in favor of bowling as of late. In addition, it is a one-night game and Dew may have an important role in the upcoming match.
In addition, Surface would have been better off to bat in CSK’s previous match, although it was Sharjah, but MSD would likely have a play in mind. We expect the captain to win the toss and follow the latest trend and field first.
Sheikh Zayed Stadium Pitch and Weather Reports for CSK vs RR IPL Match
The season has been slightly more organized in the last few days than in the first part of the tournament. We saw a bit of green color on the surface here in the last game and this match can also have such a surface. While the spinners performed well in the last match, the fast bowlers enjoyed more.
Dew is likely to play a major role in the upcoming match and defending an equal score may prove to be a bit difficult. The team batting first will want to score at least 170 runs on the board, while the other team will not want to chase more than 160 here.
