Chennai Super Kings are coming into the game on the back of a 6-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday. With that win, they became the first team to qualify for the playoffs in IPL 2021. CSK are currently sitting at the top of the points table with 9 wins in 11 matches.

They played their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. On a slow track of Sharjah, CSK restricted SRH to 134 runs in the first innings.  Josh Hazlewood and Dwayne Bravo were the picks of the bowlers for CSK. Josh Hazlewood returned with figures of 3 for 24 in 4 overs, while Bravo picked 2 for 17 in his quota of overs.

Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad gave the team an ideal start in the second innings as the duo scored 75 runs for the opening wicket in the first 10 overs. Gaikwad scored 45 off 38 balls, while Faf du Plessis made 41 off 36 deliveries. Jason Holder brought some hopes in the camp of SRH after picking both Raina and Du Plessis in the 16th over. However, Dhoni and Rayudu later guided the team home with 2 balls to spare.

Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, are currently sitting at the seventh position, having managed to secure only 4 wins this season in 11 matches. They are coming into the game on the back of three consecutive losses. Their chances of making it into the playoffs are hanging by a threat. If they ought to reach the top four, they have to win their remaining three games and maintain a healthy net-run rate. Their recent form doesn’t encourage a lot of optimism.

Rajasthan Royals played their last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Evin Lewis and Yashavsi Jaiswal gave the side a brisk start. The duo took on the bowlers right from the onset and produced a 75-run partnership for the opening wicket. Jaiswal got out after scoring 31 off 22 balls, however, Ewin Lewis kept find boundaries at the other end.

He, eventually, got out in the 12th over after scoring 58 off 37 balls. Unfortunately, his wicket triggered a heart-breaking collapse as RR only managed to score 49 runs for 7 wickets thereafter. None of the batsmen stepped up in the latter half of the innings as Rajasthan Royals were restricted to 149 runs.

The bowlers fought hard but the total proved under-par on a good batting surface of Dubai. RCB chased down the score in just 17.1 overs. Chris Morris was smashed for 50 runs in his quota of four overs, while Rahman picked 2 for 20 in 3 overs.
