Chennai Super Kings are coming after a big win over Punjab Kings while Rajasthan Royals defeated Delhi Capitals in their previous outing.

CSK vs RR Today Match Prediction Details

Fixture Name: VIVO IPL, Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals

Competition: VIVO IPL

Date: 19 April

Time: 7:30 PM IST

Ground: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Team Form Guide:
CSK (recent last): W L W W W

Brief score of the last result at the venue: Delhi Capitals 198/4 beat Punjab Kings 195/4 by 6 wickets in the 11th match of IPL 2021.

Pitch Report: As seen in the previous game, the Wankhede pitch has once again become a nightmare for the bowlers. There was no swing on offer in the last match between Punjab and Delhi and the conditions are expected to be the same in this game as well. The dew factor will surely have a role to play in the later part of the game. Thus, the team winning the toss should look to field first.
