The match between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings will be played at Rajasthan's home ground Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.


The last time the two teams met was at the Chepauk Stadium where Chennai won by eight runs, as they do on most occasions at their home ground. Now is the time for Rajasthan to have their revenge. Royals have been quite impressive in Jaipur and have beaten Chennai Super Kings four times out of six at the venue.


Chennai Super Kings have momentum on their side and are coming off consecutive wins. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals lost their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Rajasthan Royals bank on Jos Buttler to put some runs on the board as apart from Buttler and Sanju Samson, their batting has struggled. Their bowling department would be led by Jofra Archer, assisted by two quality spinners Krishnappa Gowtham and leggie Shreyas Gopal.

Chennai Super Kings would be led by MS Dhoni who has made it a habit to turn things into gold. Apart from the players on both sides, it is the captaincy of Dhoni which has a major influence on the match.

Chennai's batting would be opened by Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis while Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav and Dhoni will follow. Imran Tahir and Deepak Chahar would be their leading bowlers.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

 

Rajasthan Royals- Ajinkya Rahane (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Steven Smith, Rahul Tripathi, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Varun Aaron

Chennai Super Kings- Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c)(wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Scott Kuggeleijn, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir
