CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
Being at the sixth position in the points table, CSK are at the crucial stage of winning all their remaining five fixtures to qualify for the playoffs. Their last game against Delhi Capitals is a game that was lost despite being in the driver’s seat. But still, CSK is known for their great comebacks. CSK’s fielding was not up to their standards in the last game, dropping 4 catches of Dhawan proved very costly. Their experiment with Sam Curran in Top order is good but did not work out well in this game. With Bravo’s injury, he is ruled out of this match.
Possible – 11
Sam Curran, Faf Du Plessis, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Ms Dhoni (C&WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Karn Sharma.
Rajasthan Royals performance’s were not upto the mark ever since their inaugural title win of the tournament. Their previous match against RCB ended against with RR on the losing side. Unadkat’s death over spell affects the team, and replacing him with Varun Aaron can change fortunes for RR. Bringing Uthappa in the opening slot brings the team’s much needed balance. Samson is struggling to convert his starts into high score and this affects the teams stability in the top- order. RR is in a “Do or Die” situation to qualify for the playoffs. RR needs to work their death bowling skills to stay alive in this season. Absence of Stokes’s bowling is evidently affecting the team, also Stokes is an excellent bowler at death.
Possible – 11
