Rajasthan Royals (RR) take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in match 37 of IPL 2023 in Jaipur. This is the reverse fixture between the two sides. RR defeated CSK when the two teams met in Chepauk earlier in the season.
RR are placed second heading into this game while CSK are placed at the top of the table. The Royals have lost two back to back games after winning three on the bounce. They lost against LSG and RCB in their last two games.
The Royals have been inconsistent in their last two games. They have lost their last two games while trying to defend a total. Much of it was to do with Jos Buttler getting out early in both the games.
The team is very dependent on the top-order opening combination of Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal. The likes of Sanju Samson and Devdutt Padikkal have to also join the party now that the second half of the season is starting.
