CSK vs RR Dream11 Tips for 12th Match IPL Today Match Prediction 19 April


Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Dream11: After a cracking super Sunday, Vivo IPL 2021 brings another thrilling encounter – it’s the battle between Super Kings and Royals at the new six-hitting central – Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Both teams started off with a defeat this season but bounced back in style to open their account and register their first win. Chennai Super Kings managed an easy win by 6 wickets over Punjab Kings with Deepak Chahar’s IPL best 4-13 followed up by handy knocks from Faf Du Plessis (36* off 33) and Moen Ali (46 off 31) while the costliest player in the history of IPL Chris Morris helped his side get over the line with his quick-fire 36* off 18 balls. Jaydev Unadkat was adjudged the player of the match for his 3-15 while D Miller’s (62 off 43) contribution with the bat couldn’t be sidelined.

Both CSK and RR finished at the bottom of the table last season and would be desperate to not repeat the same although it’s just the start of the tournament. Moreover, there’s one more interesting thing in this battle – three times champions CSK have a superior edge (14-9) against Rajasthan Royals but they lost both their encounters in the UAE last season. Let’s see who takes an edge in this game.

So, make sure to finish off all your work by 07:00 as a cracker of a game is expected to take place at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai tonight. The clash will begin at 07:30 PM IST.
