CSK vs RR Today Match Prediction & Tips

Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Chennai Super Kings go head to head with Rajasthan Royals in Match 61 of the 2024 Indian Premier League on Sunday afternoon. CSK were beaten by Gujarat Titans on Friday and have 12 points whereas Rajasthan Royals have eight victories and 16 points. Read on as we preview this match which gets underway at 15:30 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk at 15:30 local time on May 12th.

Although CSK have been inconsistent this season and were beaten again on Friday evening, they are a different side at home in front of their own fans. This will certainly be a tough contest against Rajasthan Royals but, with their knowledge of home conditions, they will have an excellent chance to win.

Rajasthan Royals have suddenly hit a run of poor form but they have more than enough talent across their squad to still finish the group stage strongly. We certainly expect them to be competitive again in this match and to push CSK all the way.

CSK Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

There was a return to the side for Rachin Ravindra ahead of Friday’s game with the experienced English right-arm pace bowler Richard Gleeson dropping out of the team. Matheesha Pathirana has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament with a hamstring injury.

CSK Key Players

  • Daryl Mitchell- the New Zealand batting all-rounder was hitting the ball cleanly in Friday’s match when he hit seven fours and three sixes.
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad- although it has been an excellent IPL 2024 season for the skipper with the bat, he will be determined to contribute in this match after making a three ball duck on Friday.
  • Moeen Ali- the England international spinner showed his batting ability with 56 runs from 36 balls against Gujarat. His bowling should be effective in Chepauk.
  • Tushar Deshpande- the 28 year old right-arm medium fast bowler is CSK’s leading wicket taker across the tournament and dismissed both of Gujarat’s openers in the last game.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Ajinkya Rahane, Shaik Rasheed, Aravelly Avanish, Sameer Rizvi, Mukesh Choudhary

Ajinkya Rahane has been a consistent player from the bench across the tournament. We expect him to come in for Tushar Deshpande during the batting innings in this game.

CSK Team Form

Chennai Super Kings have lost three of their last five matches in the 2024 IPL.

CSK Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Tushar Deshpande, Simarjeet Singh

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Jos Buttler continues to recover from split webbing on his hand and he is likely to play only as an impact player during the batting innings. Apart from that, Rajasthan Royals have a fully fit squad to select from ahead of this match on Sunday afternoon.

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson- with over 471 runs in the 2024 IPL, the keeper-batter-skipper is in the top five run scorers and fully deserves his place in India’s T20 World Cup squad.
  • Riyan Parag- the 22 year old right-hander has had an excellent tournament so far with 436 runs coming at an average of 54.50.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin- the bowling all-rounder formerly played for CSK so he will be keen to perform in this game. He comes into this match after taking 3/24 against Delhi Capitals.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal- the spinner got the big wicket of Rishabh Pant in the last match. That dismissal saw him bring up 350 T20 wickets across his career.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen, Kunal Singh Rathore, Tanush Kotian

Although the game situation could always prompt a different move, we expect to see the regular impact player switch between Yuzvendra Chahal and Jos Buttler during this match.

RR Team Form

Rajasthan Royals have had an excellent tournament but are hoping to avoid their third defeat in a row.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Riyan Parag, Shubham Dubey, Rovman Powell, Donovan Ferreira, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Sharma

Who will win Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals T20 Match?

These two sides are packed with international stars and the overall level of play should be particularly high. However, based on their experience of local conditions, we have CSK as the top side.

🏆 CSK vs RR Prediction

Whenever these two teams go head to head there is plenty of attention with so many top players on show. This game should be no different and there are top four places in the league up for grabs as well. Our prediction is for a low-scoring contest with both teams having a chance of victory well into the second innnings of the game. However, overall, we are backing CSK to pick up another win at home in Chepauk.
