Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings IPL


After dishing out a last-ball thriller earlier in the season in Chennai, the Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings meet in Jaipur in a top-of-the-table clash. This IPL 2023 match #37 will be played at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Friday from 7:30pm IST.

The Royals have faced a bump in their ride, losing their last two matches. They could take confidence from the reverse fixture win but the Super Kings are on a different plane now. They have won three in a row post that defeat and look good to avenge that loss. It is the opening partnership market though that grabs our attention. I am backing Rajasthan Royals in the opening partnership count.

  • Rajasthan Royals have posted the highest opening partnership in their last 5 matches against Chennai Super Kings (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have posted the highest opening partnership in 5 of their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have won 5 of their last 6 matches against Chennai Super Kings (IPL)
  • Chennai Super Kings have lost 2 of their last 3 matches against Rajasthan Royals at this venue (IPL)

Head to Head


Over the years, this has been a close battle with Chennai winning 15 and Rajasthan winning 12 of the 27 IPL matches played. Yet, with five wins from the last six matches, it is the Royals who have had an upper hand recently.

When the sides met earlier in Chennai, it was an incredible game which was decided in the last over as the Royals won by three runs. Sandeep Sharma conceded 14 off the first three balls but recovered to give just three of the next three.

Rajasthan Royals Form


Rajasthan Royals have 8 points from seven matches and they are only two points away from the top. They have lost their last two matches in a row though, and have also lost their only match this season at the venue.

The openers Jos Buttler (244) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (227) have been doing the job for the Royals while with the ball it’s the peerless Yuzvendra Chahal (12 wickets) who’s been leading the show.

The hosts will have to be careful about their middle overs and Saju Samson’s position, with slow middle-overs eating their good starts.

Rajasthan Royals Team News


Adam Zampa could come into the side as the pitch could be slow, considering the first game here in the season.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai Super Kings are top of the table with 10 points from seven matches. They are on a three-game winning run since losing the reverse fixture.

The visitors have been led ably by their openers Devon Conway (314) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (270) but it’s the freshness of Ajinkya Rahane (SR 199.04) is refreshing. With the ball, Tushar Deshpande (12 wickets) has been a surprise package.

Chennai seem to have ticked many boxes in the recent matches and they seem to be bossing all the facets of the game.

Ben Stokes won’t be available after a setback in his comeback plans while Deepak Chahar remains sidelined too.

Verdict

This could be a very interesting match between two teams up there at the top and looking to get some space in what is proving to be a tight tournament. Chennai have picked up momentum and are looking like the side to beat although Rajasthan would be looking to call up on their home form. I am looking at the opening partnership market backing the Rajasthan Royals to do the job and post the highest opening partnership here.
