CSK vs RR Scorecard, Highlights: CSK clinches a convincing 5-wicket victory against RR

Player of the Match, Simarjeet: I'm very thankful to the CSK management, physio and the trainer. They treated me so well when I was injured the whole year. We saw how the pitch played. The captain and me had a chat and decided bowling into the wicket was the right thing to do.

CSK skipper, Ruturaj Gaikwad: Wonderful feeling, especially winning the final game of the league stage. We were cruising after the powerplay but we let the opposition in with wickets. But we had the kind of batters to finish the job and didn't take pressure. We would like to play on such pitches where it will keep our bowlers in the game, the spinners as well. Bowling into the wicket is the plan usually here when it's slow. But sometimes it flattens out and the yorker and the use of two short balls becomes important. But slow pace off is a good ploy here.

CSK vs RR Scorecard, Highlights: CSK clinches a convincing 5-wicket victory against RR

CSK secured a convincing victory in the end. It appeared that RR struggled to find the right batting approach for a significant portion of their innings. The pitch didn't seem like a 141-run surface, indicating that they left at least 25 runs on the table. This was evident from CSK's strong performance in the powerplay. With a modest target to chase, Rachin and Mitchell took on the roles of aggressors, while Rutu played the anchor's role effectively.

Ruturaj Gaikwad is playing a captain's knock, slightly slow at the moment but that's the need of the hour. The pitch is a tricky one, the ball is gripping and run-scoring is challenging.. 

RR need wickets to get back into the game, Chahal has already taken a wicket and will be looking for a couple more scalps in his remaining 3 overs.

Chennai Super Kings (Team News)

Matheesha Pathirana and Deepak Chahar remain sidelined due to hamstring injuries, depriving CSK of their bowling firepower. Additionally, Mustafizur Rahman's absence due to national team duties further impacts the team's balance. CSK's tactics revolve around exploiting weaknesses in the opposition lineup.

Mitchell Santner's effectiveness against Rajasthan Royals' captain, Sanju Samson, is a key matchup to watch. Santner's ability to trouble Samson with his left-arm spin could be pivotal in CSK's strategy.

Rajasthan Royals (Team News)

RR is coming into this same on the back of a few losses, Sanju Samson has led the team brilliantly. RR's tactics center around exploiting weaknesses in the opposition's batting order.

The team will look to capitalize on Ruturaj Gaikwad's vulnerability against their fast bowlers, particularly Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma, and Avesh Khan. Boult, in particular, has had success against Gaikwad in previous encounters, and RR will aim to exploit this matchup.

Pitch Report: Eden Gardens, Kolkata

Historically, the pitch at the Chepauk tends to favor the team's batting second, with dew making ball handling challenging for pacers. In this day game, with some cloud cover expected, winning the toss would likely prompt the captain to opt for bowling first.

While the ball may initially come onto the bat well, scoring runs could become challenging as it loses hardness. Anticipate pacers to employ slower deliveries in the latter stages of the innings.
