Chennai Super Kings (CSK) opened their account with a victory over Mumbai Indians on Saturday in their first IPL 2020 game in Abu Dhabi. They will square off against Rajasthan Royals in their next encounter in Sharjah and would be looking forward to continuing their dominant run.
One could not help but think the inaugural edition of the final between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings. The only constant between then and now is MS Dhoni, who still serves as the captain of the yellow army. CSK also leads the head to head battle between the two sides, winning 14 out of the 21 games.
We take a look at CSK’s predicted XI ahead of their IPL game against Rajasthan Royals:
Murali Vijay looked increasingly distorted in the game against Mumbai Indians while opening the batting. Murali Vijay looked like a pale shadow of the batsman of the initial seasons of IPL when he used to hit sixes for fun.
Instead, the 35-year old looked out of sorts against the likes of James Pattinson and Trent Boult. Pattinson claimed his wicket off the seventh ball, trapping him on the crease. Vijay also failed to review the LBW decision, which was missing the leg-stump.
