Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face Rajasthan Royals(RR) today in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. This year the Indian Premier League is getting more exciting than other seasons.

CSK have won their last match with excellent bowling performance. RR have won their last match as well. The most expensive player of IPL has risen at the occasion.

Inside CSK:

The CSK team is suffering from a lack of pacers. Though Chahar had bowled well, they need someone to accompany him. Ruturaj has been struggling in the powerplay. So they may look for Robin Uthappa or can bring Rayudu up in the order.

Moeen Ali is performing well. Rain is also in good form. Sam Curran is an asset to the team. Dhoni didn’t bat in the last match. Bravo will continue as Behrendorff is in quarantine.

Inside RR:

Ben Stokes has left India after the match against Delhi Capitals because of an injury. Miller has been brought into the team. He batted well and showed his class. Morris has also played amazingly and finished the game for the team.

Buttler has to be more responsible upfront. Vohra has suffered in the opening as well. We may see Jaiswal in coming games. Dube also has to be more confident. Indian Bowlers like Sakariya, Unadkat are doing well for the team.

CSK vs RR: What to expect

We have seen excellent bating on this ground yesterday by Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals. So today a high-scoring match is expected. Winning the toss teams will like to chase. The dew factor is crucial for T20 matches. Bal will be swinging in the powerplay. 180+ runs will be good to defend.

Predicted XI of CSK:

There may not be any changes in the squad. The team will like to continue with the winning combination. Rayudu may open for CSK today. We may see Robin Uthappa in place of Gaikwad as well.

Bravo, Curran, Chahar, and Shardul are the key bowlers. Jadeja will be an x-factor always in the team.

Faf du plessis is the pillar of CSK batting

CSK team against RR: Ruturaj Gaikwad/Robin Uthappa, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar.

Predicted XI of RR:

RR now have a good combination to play despite having major injuries. Though the opening combination is not set yet. We may see Jaiswal today replacing Vohra.

The middle-order is also a matter of concern. But they have few options to bring in playing XI.

Unadkat, Sakariya, Mustafizur, Morris, Tewatia making a good bowling attack. But the team is relying on a few bats like Miller, Buttler, Samson, and Morris.

Chris Morris can change the game with both bat and ball

RR team against CSK: Manan Vohra/Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman.
