CSK VS RR Dream11 Prediction Small League Teams, Match Preview & Playing 11

Indian Premier League, 2019 | Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals PREVIEW

CSK vs RR  Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Chennai, March 31, Sunday at 08:00 PM IST

The defending champions Chennai Super Kings will collide against Rajasthan Royals in their next home assignment at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The Super Kings have started brilliantly having won two back-to-back games. They humiliated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the tournament opener by 7 wickets and then went past Delhi Capitals in the last over by 6 wickets.

Rajasthan Royals so far have been very unlucky as they have lost both their matches against Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad. They haven't been able to perform cohesively with both bat and ball which has been the reason for their downfall. In their first game against Kings XI Punjab, their batting unit failed to chase a formidable 184 and then, in the game against Sunrisers they managed 198 but failed to defend after the bowlers failed miserably.

Going by the current form of the two sides, Chennai Super Kings definitely holds the upper hand in this contest and playing at their own den in the MA Chidambaram, it could be a hat-trick of wins for the home side.

Head to Head

Total – 20
