CSK vs RR Prediction:
Its elimination day in the Indian Premier League. The two teams languishing down at the bottom, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will face off against each other in Abu Dhabi to retain their playoff dreams. The winner of the match will still have hopes of making it to the playoffs, whereas the loser stands eliminated.
- In Buttler, Smith, Stokes, and Samson, they have one of the most dynamic top four that a T20 team could ever wish for.
- Most of their young players who bat in the lower middle order can be very handy with the bat. Players like Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag provides much greater batting depth to RR.
- In Jofra Archer, they have one of the best T20 death over specialist.
Chennai Super Kings:
- Sam Curran has proved himself to be a genuine T20 all-rounder. If CSK can use him fruitfully, then they can turn around their fortunes.
- Faf du Plessis is in terrific form with the bat. He is one of the top leading run-getter of the IPL 2020 so far.
- With pitches slowing down, CSK is sure to gain more advantages than any other team in the competition.
- RR’s bowling is a huge worry. The domestic bowlers must complement Jofra Archer big time.
- Both their premier batsmen, Sanju Samson and Steve Smith are struggling for form. Apart from a few matches, they haven’t clicked so far.
- RR doesn’t have a good enough spin attack.
Chennai Super Kings:
- Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson in the last few matches are the only players who are providing timely support with the bat for CSK. If the contributions from others remain poor as before, then they are sure to be knocked out.
- The form of MS Dhoni is a huge worry.
- What CSK lacks the most is intent, even while chasing humungous totals, they are playing without any intent.
- Dwayne Bravo is injured.

RR VS CSK MATCH PREDICTION
Will MS Dhoni-led CSK get eliminated without entering the playoffs for the first time in the history of the IPL? It’s all in Rajasthan Royals’ hand. It’s a do or die situation for both the teams. CSK are struck with injury concerns regarding Dwayne Bravo. It was his injury that cost them the match against DC two days before. But with an experienced Imran Tahir warming the benches, they will happily take that swap. No other changes are expected from CSK.
As for RR, they played brilliantly in the last match against RCB but a superhuman effort from AB de Villiers saw them on the wrong side of the results. They too are expected to be unchanged.
CSK Playing XI: Sam Curran, Faf Du Plessis, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir, Karn Sharma
RR Playing XI: Ben Stokes, Robin Uthappa, Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Karthik Tyagi, Jaydev Unadkat
