With the IPL season gradually entering its final stretches, the race for playoff qualification has never been more heated. These two sides hanging on a loose thread, the result of this fixture could play a huge role in determining which team deserves to make the top-four.Bet Now!
Their recent form hasn’t been encouraging, losing three of their previous four games. Pressure is already mounting on skipper MS Dhoni to turn his side’s fortunes around as soon as possible. CSK were below-par versus Delhi Capitals last time out, as their bowlers looked clueless.
Though the bowling unit failed to get into their stride, CSK’s batsmen were in inspired form. Openers Sam Curran and Faf du Plessis began brightly to put their side on the front-foot. However, MS Dhoni will have to rediscover his form if he is to lead the lads to success in this upcoming contest.
In truth, a playoff place already seems out of reach, and RR should rather focus on achieving a respectable league finish. The only bright spark in their team this season, Jofra Archer, has now hit a rough patch, failing to turn up in recent matches.
His decline in form has cost the Rajasthan Royals dearly. With Archer battling his own personal demons, batsmen Robin Uthappa and Ben Stokes were impressive in the previous game. Smith and Jos Buttler also bossed the middle order, and will be hoping to hit their high marks once again on Monday.
CSK are an experienced side with a host of talented players in their ranks. They will need their bowlers to improve performance levels to help squeeze those much-needed points out of this RR team. The safest punt will be backing CSK to win this tricky contest.
