IPL 2018: RR vs CSK Preview

Today, 43rd match of IPL season 11 is being played between Chennai and Rajasthan in Jaipur in which Chennai won the toss and chose to bat first on Rajasthan's home ground. With Binny dismissed the onus was on the the England wicket keeper to steer the team to victory.

Though lying at No.2 on the points table besides Sunrisers Hyderabad (which leads with 18 points from 11 games), CSK might want to keep its winning streak against the Rajasthan Royals. His hundred helped CSK post a mammoth score of 204 runs on the board, to which the RR failed to chase and were all-out on 140.

CSK should go in with an unchanged XI. Farm he did, but he also found the boundary on six of those 12 balls, and raced away to 27 off 12.

CSK 176-4 after 20 overs: Suresh Raina scored a fine half century (52 runs of 35 balls) as Chennai Super Kings reached 176-4 in 20 overs against Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Man Singh Stadium on Friday.

The Chennai batsmen, though, are on fire and most are among runs with Ambati Rayudu, Australian Shane Watson, West Indian Dwayne Bravo, skipper Dhoni and Suresh Raina all contributing when the team has needed them. The pace attack will once again feature Lungi Ngidi, David Willey and Shardul Thakur.Depending on their terrific form, Chennai will once again be the favourites in Friday's clash, though a desperate Rajasthan will look to come out all guns blazing. CSK had regained control at this point, after a blistering start from Buttler. Rohit Sharma isn't far behind with 267 runs in this season and needs 33 more runs to level Raina's feat.

On a pitch that offered a lot of turn for the spinners, the trio of K Gowtham, Ankit Sharma and Ish Sodhi (1/29) did not come good for Royals. Archer returned to the attack only nine overs later, immediately sending back Watson, whose top edge was picked by wicketkeeper Jos Buttler.

Average performance by captain Rahane and Sanju Samson and below-par show of star English all-rounder Ben Stokes and Rahul Tripathi has hurt Royals badly and the hosts need their batting unit to fire in unison against the formidable CSK.

From overs 14 to 19, CSK managed only three shots to the boundary - one each off Ben Stokes, Jaydev Unadkat and Archer - as Royals fought back by either bowling pinpoint yorkers or going full and wide to MS Dhoni and Sam Billings. During this time, he scored a total of two boundaries. It took four tries for that innings to come, even if they had no complaints about the returns on the last three. For a team that is filled with players who are on wrong side of 30, it has been a fantastic season with different match winners in different games.
