Head to Head
There have been some really engrossing battles between Chennai and Rajasthan over the years with the Super Kings edging the ledger 15-12. Yet, it is the Royals who have won four of the last five matches.
Last season saw Rajasthan edge out Chennai by five wickets at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
Chennai Super Kings Form
Chennai Super Kings started their season with a five-wicket loss to Gujarat Titans but bounced back with a 12-run win over Lucknow Super Giants and by seven wickets over Mumbai Indians.
Ruturaj Gaikwad has been in blistering form for Chennai this season with 189 runs so far. He has already scored two 50+ scores, while Ajinkya Rahane smashed 61 off just 27 balls last time around.
Tushar Deshpande with five wickets has been Chennai’s best bowler although in reality it’s their spinners ruling the roost with Moeen Ali, Mitchell Santner and Ravindra Jadeja taking 11 wickets between them.
Chennai Super Kings Team News
Chennai will have Sri Lanka’s Maheesh Theekshana and Matheesha Pathirana joining the squad. Deepak Chahar, Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes are nursing injuries.
Rajasthan Royals Form
Rajasthan Royals also have two wins from their three matches in IPL 2023, although with a better NRR. They defeated Hyderabad by 72 runs and Delhi by 57 runs while losing to Punjab by five runs.
The openers have been destructive for Rajasthan with Jos Buttler scoring 152 runs so far while Yashasvi Jaiswal aggregating 125. Even Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer are clocking well with 97 runs each.
With the ball, it is Yuzvendra Chahal with eight wickets who has been leading their charge. Trent Boult’s five wickets have been crucial too with the seamer owning powerplays.
Rajasthan Royals Team News
Spin conditions could see the Royals bring Murugan Ashwin straight into the playing XI rather than Asif. There’s also an outside chance of Adam Zampa getting a game with Chennai conditions likely to suit his bowling.
