RR vs CSK IPL 2021 Match Preview:
Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with Rajasthan Royals in the 47th match of the Indian Premier League, at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, on Saturday.
It’s the second match of a doubleheader on Saturday, with Mumbai Indians taking on Delhi Capitals in the afternoon game.
Both the sides are at opposite ends of the table. Chennai Super Kings became the first team to qualify for the playoffs after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by six wickets in their last match. Rajasthan Royals, meanwhile, were convincingly beaten by Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous outing. While Chennai Super Kings have nine wins from eleven games, Rajasthan Royals have only four.
The Royals have failed to deliver as a team this season, despite having some quality individual performers. While Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal got them off to a rollicking start against Royal Challengers Bangalore, they crumbled in the second half of their innings to finish with a sub-par total.
While Mustafizur Rahman and Chetan Sakariya have done well with the ball, Chris Morris and the spinners haven’t shown up in the UAE leg. Rajasthan Royals will look to address these issues ahead of their clash with Chennai Super Kings.
Chennai Super Kings, meanwhile, have won all four of their games in the UAE, and look like the favourites to lift the title. Their opening partnership is one of the strongest in the league, and both Faf Du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad are in stellar form. The depth of their batting order has allowed them to play fearless cricket and take the attack to opposition bowlers.
With a revitalised DJ Bravo at the heart of it, Chennai Super Kings’s bowling is one of the best in the league. Shardul Thakur is another player whose contributions in the IPL have largely gone unnoticed.
Jadeja and Moeen Ali are two quality spinners who also add depth to the batting department. There isn’t much to criticise about the Chennai Super Kings team, and the only thing they’ll want before the playoffs is for Suresh Raina to get back into form.
Chennai Super Kings beat Rajasthan Royals by 45 runs the last time the two sides locked horns. Sanju Samson and his side will look to take the game closer this time around and get a win.
