Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: IPL 2020 - Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings - Match 4
The 4th match of the Indian Premier League 2020 will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah in the UAE.
After their five-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians in the opening fixture of the Indian Premier League 2020, Chennai Super Kings would be raring to go for their second fixture of the IPL. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals are a bit uncertain of their best XI as they are set to play their first match of IPL 2020.
RR will not only miss the services of Ben Stokes, who is currently in New Zealand, there is also a question mark over Steve Smith's fitness after he continued to show delayed symptoms of concussion after being hit on the head during practice before the first ODI between Australia and England.
The Royals will open the batting with Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler, with Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa and Riyan Parag following in the middle order.
Jofra Archer, Tom Curran and one of Jaydev Unadkat, Varun Aaron or Kartik Tyagi will have the company of spinners Mayank Markande and Shreyas Gopal and all-rounder Riyan Parag.
Chennai have won 14 of the 22 matches that the side has played against Rajasthan Royals while RR have registered only 8 wins.
Chennai will be the favourites, with Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu in good form with the bat and Piyush Chawla, Lungi Ngidi and Deepak Chahar looking good with the ball.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) - Murali Vijay, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Lungi Ngidi.
Rajasthan Royals (RR) - Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler(wk), Sanju Samson, Steve Smith(c), Robin Uthappa, Riyan Parag, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat/Varun Aaron, Mayank Markande.
