CSK VS RR Match Preview:
Chennai Super Kings batsmen played with a new aggressive approach in the last match against DC. Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, and Ambati Rayudu looked in fine form. Once MS Dhoni finds his touch with the bat, CSK can overpower any bowling line up.
Ravindra Jadeja has been the MVP of the team so far this season. He has been terrific with the bat and has been economical with the ball. Dwayne Bravo was injured during the last game and might make way for either Imran Tahir or bowling all-rounder Mitchell Santner in this match.
Rajasthan Royals started well with the bat in the last match against RCB. Robin Uthappa looked in great touch while opening the batting. Steve Smith found his rhythm as well. Sanju Samson has been off-color this season, his form will be important for the team's chances to qualify for playoffs.
Ben Stokes didn't ball in the last game which has raised questions over his fitness. If he isn't fit for bowling, the team loses the balance. Jaydev Unadkat has been expensive so far and might make way for Varun Aaron in the playing XI.
Both Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals are struggling to find consistency in this season. It will be a match of two equal teams trying to find the right tactics to keep up in the race of playoffs.
