CSK vs RR Today Match Prediction Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Who will win Today 19 October

CSK vs RR today match prediction: Two identical teams. Two teams with same number of wins as that of loss. Two teams in do or die situation. Two teams that has done everything till now but are yet to fall on the right side of the result. This game will eventually knock out one team in this IPL and neither of the teams would want that. Rajasthan Royals were so close to a win in their game against BLR but a freakish kind of innings from AB De Villiers ensured RR remain on 6 points in the points table.

Chennai Super Kings have suffered a body blow in Dwayne Bravo who might miss yet another week and CSK have the option to play Imran Tahir who will be hungrier than ever to prove his worth. Just when CSK thought that they found a winning combination, they have once again suffered a set back and are forced to change their team for one more time in this season which is very unlike MS Dhoni who always loves to play with a settled team.

CSK vs RR dream11 prediction for today’s game

In today IPL match prediction, let us bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
The form of Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu is nothing but a blessing in disguise for them. They entered the playoffs even without them performing in the previous year and with their top 4 in form, it is only a matter of time that CSK enter into an unbeaten run.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Steve Smith played a wonderful innings and it got overshadowed by AB De Villiers's brilliance. The form of Steve Smith will be a positive thing for RR. They opened with Robin Uthappa who showed attacking intent from ball 1. Though Jos Buttler in middle order failed in the previous game, they should persist with it.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
Their death bowling attack will be taken a beating in the absence of Dwayne Bravo. Karn Sharma showed promise in his first 2 gams and has been bowling not upto the mark since then.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
The form of Jos Buttler has been affecting them massively. The lack of a quality support bowler for Jofra Archer is haunting them every game. Though, Karthik Tyagi has been impressive, they badly need another solid fast bowling option.

CSK vs RR dream11 team for today’s match
In dream11 prediction, let us see the players who can fetch big points in fantasy teams
Faf Du Plessis: He scored a splendid half century in the previous game and is the leader of CSK's batting order. He has scored 365 runs at an average of 52.
Shane Watson: He is being shielded by Faf Du Plessis and Sam Curran against the new ball and with Shane Watson in good form, he can really take advantage of the spinners in the middle overs.
Robin Uthappa: He looked really impressive in the previous game where he opened the innings. He can be a game changer and can also accumulate runs at a fast pace if he gets going in power play
Jofra Archer: He is picking wickets but unfortunately his team is ending up on the wrong side because of no contributions from other bowlers. He has 12 wickets in the tournament so far.
Other picks: Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir, and Steve Smith are all good picks.

Today IPL match score: Team batting first is expected to score around 160
