  • CSK vs RR Dream11 Prediction: Two teams from bottom of the points table will look to repair their campaigns today as crucial two points will be at stake. Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals would be well aware of the fact that a loss here would surely make them out of favor for the play-offs. Both teams are coming into this encounter at Abu Dhabi after losing their respective last matches in close finishes. We will preview CSK vs RR Dream11 contest.

    Chennai Super Kings faced Delhi Capitals at Sharjah in their last match. Batting first, They lost Sam Curran in the very first over. After that Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis put on a partnership of 87 runs to set the stage for the big finish. Both were dismissed in quick succession after that. Ambati Rayudu and Ravindra Jadeja provided a push with their clean-hitting in the death overs to take CSK to a total of 179 runs. In reply, Deepak Chahar was their stand out bowler with a couple of wickets but all others proved expansive at different stages of the innings. In the end, an injury to Dwayne Bravo cost them the match as Ravindra Jadeja had to bowl to two left-handers in the last over to defend the total.

    Batting first in their last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rajasthan Royals shuffled their batting order to make the full use of their resources. That paid dividends with Robin Uthappa giving them a good start with a cameo of 41 runs from 22 balls. But they lost three quick wickets after the powerplay overs. That left Steve Smith and Jos Buttler to consolidate the innings for a little while. Steve Smith made 57 runs and remained main architect behind the RR total of 177 runs. In reply, bowlers kept RCB under control for most part of their defense. But they couldn’t get answers to an AB de Villiers onslaught in last couple of overs. He made 55 from 22 deliveries and took RCB home with 2 balls to spare.

    In head-to-head comparisons, Chennai Super Kings have had an upper hand over Rajasthan Royals with a lead of 14-9 in 23 matches played between them. In last 5 matches, CSK have won 3 matches compared to 2 of RR. In the first meeting this year, Rajasthan Royals beat Chennai Super Kings in a high-scoring match at Sharjah.

    Pitch and Conditions

    Abu Dhabi has remained batting-friendly and we haven’t seen much of difference in its behavior in the last fortnight. There was a decent covering of grass during the yesterday’s match between KKR and SRH and same can be expected today.  Batting first here would still be a favorable decision for the captains after winning the toss.

    Captain Picks

    For Small Leagues

    • Faf du Plessis is ever dependable pick from today’s lineups. He is at third position in leading run-scores’ tally with 365 runs from 9 innings. He has made starts in almost all the matches this season. He made a quick-fire 72 against RR when both met for the first time this season at Sharjah.
    • Sam Curran’s stocks have risen significantly in fantasy cricket since he started opening for CSK. He was already an effective choice with his bowling but this move has given his fantasy potential another dimension altogether. He has taken 10 scalps at an average of 28.30 from this season so far.
    • Jofra Archer is a straight-forward pick from Rajasthan Royals. His spells with the new ball can be described as ‘fiery’ to say the least. He hardly gives anything away to batsmen to work with. His powerplay and death bowling offer a tempting package for any of your leagues. He has 12 wickets from 9 matches so far.

    For Grand Leagues

    • Ambati Rayudu can be a safe bet for the grand leagues today. He is fresh from the unbeaten innings of 45 runs against the Capitals in their last match. He is in CSK’s top 3 run scorers even after missing 3 games due to an injury. He has made 237 runs at an average of 47.40 from 6 innings.
    • If Jos Buttler is playing a T20 match, you just cannot go beyond him no matter how bad his form is. We are suggesting his name in the grand leagues, so that he can act as a differential if he comes off. One can still feel that an innings of substance is just round the corner for him.
    • Rahul Tewatia was not known to many before this season but he has made a name for himself. His contributions in both the segments are there for everyone to see. He played a crucial role in all of RR’s wins till now. He has 222 runs with the bat and has taken 6 wickets with ball in hand. Clearly, he comes across as a utility pick in the grand leagues.

    Who will win CSK vs RR Today Match Prediction?

    As per our Today Match Prediction, Chennai Super Kings can counter Rajasthan Royals today with their experience. Both the teams are struggling with form and their plans are all over the place so far in the competition. It is still anybody’s game but one can feel that CSK may prevail in the end if pitch starts to take turn for the slower bowlers.
