The Royals do not possess an extraordinary batting unit or a bowling unit. But they seem to have the right combination of players. The core of the team is built around on its youngsters. Also, they are heavily reliant on England and Australian stars. The team might miss Smith due to a concussion for the opening game. Overall not a big threat to the opponent.
Possible – 11
Jos Buttler (WK), Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith(C), Riyan Parag, Mahipal Lomrar, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Mayank Markhande, Jaydev Unadkat, Andrew Tye
Chennai Super Kings
After displaying a tremondous performance, CSK will look to maintain its momentum. The openers are yet to perform but the middle order looks promising. The ground is small when compared to Abu Dhabi. We could expect some fireworks. They might go with the same 11s.
Possible – 11
Shane Watson, Francois Du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C)(WK), Kedhar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi.
RR might not have the expected edge in this game but CSK surely does have the niche to win. Average team score expected around 160, Chennai Super Kings will come out on top.
Players to watch out for:
Batsmen – Jos Buttler, Faf du Plessis
Bowlers – Mayank Markande, Piyush Chawla.
