CSK vs RR 2020 Match
During last year’s IPL in UAE, Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings met at Sharjah for their first fixture. Batting first, Rajasthan batsmen set their intentions pretty clear. Sanju Samson and Steve Smith were involved a partnership of blitzkrieg as both went all guns blazing. Steve Smith made 69 while Sanju Samson slammed 74 runs from just 32 balls. In the end, Jofra Archer’s quick-fire 27 propel the Royals to 216 from their 20 overs. In reply, Faf du Plessis played a wonderful hand for CSK but the task was always going to be difficult. His 72 as well as couple of supporting acts went in vain as CSK fell short by 16 runs in the end. Rahul Tewatia picked up 3 scalps for Rajasthan.

In the second fixture at Abu Dhabi, Chennai Super Kings faced a collapse batting first as they lost 4 batsmen on the score of just 56 runs. MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja tried to rescue them but they too failed to gather any momentum as CSK were restricted to just 125 runs. In reply, RR also had a terrible start as they lost first 3 wickets pretty early. But Jos Buttler single-handedly aced the chase without any further loss. The Englishman ended up with an unbeaten 70.

CSK batting stats vs Rajasthan Royals
Apart from the two years in-between, Chennai Super Kings have always maintained their team together. That has turned out to be the main strength of the franchise over the years. Even after severe criticisms of the ‘Dad’s army’, team management has always preferred experience over any other factors. As a result of that, almost all run scoring charts have been led by Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni and it is no different against Rajasthan Royals as well. The duo has 638 and 480 runs respectively against RR. Murali Vijay and Faf du Plessis round-off the list with 330 and 237 runs in that order. Murali Vijay has the best average and strike-rate from the list mainly due to couple of outstanding knocks against RR.

Both Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni are having the better average at home compared to their away encounters. Shane Watson is particularly menacing at neutral venues with his ton coming at Pune during the 2018 IPL.

Overall:

No Player Innings Not Out Runs Average Strike Rate 100s 50s
1 Suresh Raina 22 0 638 29.00 135.46 0 4
2 MS Dhoni 22 10 480 40.00 129.03 0 2
3 Faf du Plessis 8 0 237 29.63 128.80 0 2

CSK bowling stats vs Rajasthan Royals

The conditions at Chepauk have always been slow and supportive of spinners and fast bowlers with variations. Ravindra Jadeja started his IPL journey with Rajasthan Royals but when he plays against them as a ‘super king’, he has been top-notch as well. He leads the wicket-takers tally with 15 wickets from as many innings against RR. Dwayne Bravo is at second position with 15 scalps from 11 innings while Deepak Chahar has 9 wickets from just 5 innings. Shardul Thakur has also been impressive with 7 wickets from 5 matches. Ravindra Jadeja also has two four-wicket hauls against his former teammates.

RR batting stats vs Chennai Super Kings
On the contrary to Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals have remained in constant search of their best lineup even after winning the opening season under Shane Warne. Continuous changes in the team management have also failed to give a clear picture of the strategy of the franchise. The table of top run-scorers against Chennai Super Kings is only firming the fact of an unsettled batting lineup. Ajinkya Rahane is at the top with only 335 runs from 15 innings. Jos Buttler is at the following spot with 216 runs from 5 innings while Sanju Samson has 164 runs from 10 innings. Ben Stokes is at the fourth position with 149 runs from 5 innings against CSK. Jos Buttler has been the best in terms of average and strike-rate against CSK.

Jos Buttler is dominant at home while Shane Watson and Ravindra Jadeja are still featuring in the neutral tables. Ben Stokes is having the best strike-rate in the matches played at Chepauk but RR need a couple of others to push their cases against the champion side if they encounter sluggish pitches again this year.

Overall:

No Player Innings Not Out Runs Average Strike Rate 100s 50s
1 Ajinkya Rahane 15 1 335 23.93 121.82 0 3
2 Jos Buttler 5 2 216 72.00 152.11 0 2
3 Sanju Samson 10 0 164 16.40 132.26 0 1
4 Ben Stokes 5 0 149 29.80 139.25 0 0

RR bowling stats vs Chennai Super Kings
If we talk about Rajasthan Royals’ bowling tables against Chennai Super Kings, the situation is even worse. The fact that Jofra Archer is topping the list with only 5 matches against CSK tells you something. He has 7 scalps from these matches followed by Shreyas Gopal with 5 wickets from 5 matches. Rahul Tewatia has 4 wickets from couple of matches while Chris Morris concludes the list with the same number of wickets as Rahul Tewatia. Jofra Archer has an average of 17.71 while an economy of 6.20 against Chennai Super Kings.

Jofra Archer is leading the charge at home while Shane Warne had a good record at Chepauk during his IPL days. Shreyas Gopal has accumulated all his wickets against CSK from a single game at Pune. Jaydev Unadkat needs to take greater responsibilities in order to support Jofra Archer as well as to present a challenge against the 3-times champions this time around.

Overall:

No Player Innings Wickets 5w 4w
1 Jofra Archer 5 7 0 0
2 Shreyas Gopal 5 5 0 0
3 Rahul Tewatia 2 4 0 0
4 Chris Morris 2 4 0 0
