Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings 11th April 2019 Match Prediction: Who’ll Win Today’s Match?


Rajasthan Royals have a huge task to stop the defending champions CSK. The match no. 25 of the VIVO IPL 2019 at Jaipur will see the visitors from south take on the Royals. Chennai are on high, with 10 points and are sitting at the top of the table. Meanwhile Rajasthan are just one spot above RCB, with a solitary win. The Royals need this home win pretty badly, if they want to secure any chances of making it to the playoffs. So, join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our prediction.

Rajasthan Royals

The former champions have not enjoyed a good start to the IPL 2019. With just one win, Rajasthan are possibly on the brink of elimination if they lose this one. Captain Rahane has not been able to lead the team and his poor form with the bat is an issue. RR will look up to Steve Smith and Jos Buttler to score with the bat. In their last match against KKR, Rajasthan suffered a huge defeat. Apart from a superb 73 from Smith none of the other batsmen stood out much. The likes of Rahul Tripathi and Ben Stokes will have to take advantage of the home crowd to score runs. The Rajasthan side has some really talented players but have lacked the finishing of a balanced team.

Rajasthan have a more than decent bowling line up with Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni and Ben Stokes. But in their previous match Narine and Chris Lynn smashed every bowler out of the park in a one sided match. RR must be careful as to not repeat the same mistakes, as the likes of Dhoni, Raina, Watson and du Plessis are all big hitters. Archer has been a consistent performer for the Royals and he will have a huge task of stopping Dhoni and co.

Ben Stokes and Steve Smith will have the pressure of scoring with the bat and pose a high total. Meanwhile Archer and Kulkarni will have to lead the bowling to stop a rampaging Chennai.

Predicted XI

Ajinkiya Rahane, Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Rahul Tripathi, Ben Stokes, Prasanth Chopra, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Sudhesan Midhun.

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai are well on their way to another consecutive title. With five wins in six matches, Chennai sit at the top of the table. A sole loss coming away against a resolute MI. CSK has been formidable at their home ground in Chepauk. A win at Jaipur will solidify their lead and put them in pole position for the playoffs. CSK have put their opening worries behind with the inclusion of Faf du Plessis. The South African has started well with Watson and will look to do the same against a struggling Rajasthan. CSK have a lot of fire power when it comes to their batting abilities. Raina, Rayudu, Dhoni and Jadeja are all capable of clearing the ropes with ease. Last time around it was Dhoni who smashed around the Rajasthan bowlers, and he might look to repeat the same feat again.

CSK have a well balanced team. Their hitting prowess is matched equally by their bowling precision. Favouring the spin duo of Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja has done wonders for Dhoni. Deepak Chahar was impressive in the last match, picking up three crucial wickets. Imran Tahir has been one of the most consistent with the bowling and his spin will rattle the RR batting line up with ease.

Needless to say, it’s the entire CSK team that Rajasthan have to worry about.

Predicted XI

Shane Watson, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, Ravindra Jadeja, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kedar Jhadav, Imran Tahir.

    CSK have a tough away schedule coming up and they will be looking to start off with a win. Rajasthan on the other hand will look for their second win in a bid to gather some hopes for the playoffs. But that said, Dhoni and co. will come out on top!
