The defending champions of the Indian Super League in Chennai Super Kings will be putting forth their unbeaten record on the line as they face Rajasthan Royals on Sunday.
Chennai Super Kings are in the second spot of the league and have done continued on from where they left off the last season. The franchise is genuinely the best the competition has ever seen since its inception, and they will be looking to continue on this dominance. Captain MS Dhoni is a superstar and a winner, which makes him the ideal player to lead this group of players towards glory. They will be looking to make it three wins out of three in this upcoming fixture.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have lost both of their first two games. However, the fact of the matter is that both the losses were rather close ones. These are good signs for the team who shouldn’t be getting bogged down and have proven to have some of the best foreign players in Ben Stokes, Steve Smith and Jos Buttler. This is crunch time for the franchise, and have to register their first points on the board or else the momentum needed to make the playoffs will be harder to generate.
