Rajasthan Royal Vs Chennai Super Kings IPL Match Prediction, Preview, Betting Tips & Playing 11: Who Will Win today?

The 43rd match of IPL 2018 is upon us as Rajasthan Royals take on Chennai Super Kings at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur on 11th May 2018. The game brings forth two teams with completely different aspirations at the moment. As RR would be fighting to stay alive in IPL 2018, CSK would be chasing the win that would ensure their progress into the playoffs.  Let’s check today’s match preview, playing 11, team news, match analysis and prediction. Who Will win today’s IPL match?

Rajasthan Royals

Things finally looked brighter for the outfit from Rajasthan Royals after registering a morale-boosting win against KXIP at their home ground, breaking a dismal run of 3 straight losses. Though problems for RR persist, they would be eager to give it their all and see where it takes them. They have seen some of their desperate changes work but it really is an uphill task against the mighty Chennai Super Kings who are looking good enough for another playoff appearance. While they were hurt with the Steve Smith, the abysmal form of their new skipper, Ajinkya Rahane has not helped their case at all.

Batting Line-up

The poor form of some of their key batsmen has really affected them badly. Players like Ben Stokes, Ajinkya Rahane, and Sanju Samson haven’t had any sort of consistency with the bat. However, their most inspired move in the last few weeks seems to be the promotion of Jos Buttler to the top of the batting order who seems like a completely different player when he opens the batting. The fact that the Jaipur wicket hasn’t changed too much will surely aid the Rajasthan batsmen.

Bowling Line-up

Ish Sodhi clearly showed why he should have been given more chances at the beginning of the tournament. He seems to be the spinner RR lacked all season and with Gowtham, he forms a decent spin pair. Jofra Archer continues to impress as he looks all set to spearhead the RR attack and with able support from the likes of Jaydev Unadkat and Ben Stokes, RR does possess a formidable bowling line-up, something they must implement properly.

Key Players

Though Ajinkya Rahane has been a shadow of himself throughout the tournament, you can never count him out. He has the potential to stick to the crease and we feel that he will play an important role on Friday. Ish Sodhi could bring the element of surprise again and he could be RR’s key player with the ball. Given the form Buttler finds himself in though, he seems like a safe bet to put your money on.

Predicted Playing XI

Ajinkya Rahane( C ), Jos Buttler( WK ), Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mahipal Lomror, Jofra Archer, Anureet Singh, Jaydev Unadkat, Ish Sodhi

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings come off a long break of 5 days. While a lot has happened in the tournament since then, CSK still sits on the second spot in IPL Points table. Needing one more win to qualify for the playoffs, CSK is in a comfortable position as always. The team, however, hasn’t enjoyed the stability it is known for. As they have so many options, they still haven’t settled on their strongest side and that could prove to be their undoing deep into the tournament. As a result, CSK would be looking to settle on one particular side. Having already beaten RR comprehensively earlier this season, they would be confident of securing another win over RR which might be more difficult than it seems owing to RR’s dominance at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium.

Batting Line-up

Ambati Rayudu has probably been their player of the season with some well-made knocks spread throughout IPL 2018 and sits on 3rd at the Orange Cup standings. MS Dhoni has been much better than what his critics expected of him and is the 7th highest run scorer this season. Shane Watson is a live example of the phrase, “Age is just a number.” With solid batting performances all around, CSK’s batting is their strength this season and the MS Dhoni-led side feels they can chase any score.

Bowling Line-up

Although CSK’s bowling looked below par all season, they conjured up some magic last night against RCB, restricting them to a meager 127 at Pune. The absence of in-form Deepak Chahar hasn’t been felt strongly. David Willey and Lungi Ngidi have formed a formidable opening pair, something that can really rattle the RR top-order batsmen, especially considering their form. Both their spinners Jadeja and Harbhajan look in good form and it would take a monumental RR batting effort to score runs against a well-equipped CSK bowling unit.

Key Players

David Willey looked good in his first match and must be looked at intently as he has the potential to be a wily customer with the ball. The form of MS Dhoni is sure to encourage Mahi fans and one of those quintessential knocks from him could take the game away from the Royals whereas Jadeja could be such a vital cog in this well-oiled CSK wheel. Dhoni, Willey, and Jadeja are the players to watch out for as a result.

Predicted Playing XI

Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Dhruv Shorey, MS Dhoni (C &WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Harbhajan Singh, David Willey, Lungi Ngidi
