The upcoming fixture between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals is expected to be a one sided affair unless the Royals can pull a trick out of their sleeves because they would be playing against MS Dhoni and that man, can even defend a score as low as 116 runs against Kings XI Punjab in 2009 (CSK vs RR IPL). They crushed the Delhi Capitals away from home. Their bowlers did a fabulous job by restricting their opponents to a score of 147 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 6 wickets. As Chennai stepped out to bat, Shane Watson stepped up to the situation with his knock of 44 runs off 26 balls. Suresh Raina’s cameo of 30 runs kept things maintained for Chennai as MS Dhoni guided his team to another easy victory.
Rajasthan Royals had only to blame their bowlers for the mishap caused by them. All of their bowlers went for boundaries after boundaries and the magical unbeaten 102 knock by Sanju Samson off 55 balls went unnoticed in their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Repeating the same heroics against Chennai would be a difficult job and if they can’t turn things around for them they would have to stay in the last position of the points table.
The MA Chidambaram Stadium has always been a track, spinners would enjoy. Pacers may try their cutters but it would be the spinners who will take charge of the game. As it favours spinning, this pitch has also seen a highest of 246 runs by in 20 overs CSK vs RR IPL
The chances of raining is 10% so it would be a relief that it won’t spoil the game. Moreover, it is expected to be a very hot day as the maximum temperature can reach up to 36 degrees Celsius with 58% humidity in the air.
