Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals | Team News

Chennai Super Kings

No team has better home numbers than them (they've won 41 of their 57 home games in the IPL, which is nearly 72%) and their win against Mumbai Indians showed their batting possesses the dynamism to take on the best. Their concern remains their struggling seam bowlers, but with Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner at their tidy best, and with the Sri Lankan Maheesh Theekshana possibly returning to their XI, they have a spin attack that can control games in favourable conditions.

Rajasthan Royals

Royals have resumed regular service, beating Delhi Capitals comprehensively to go with the thrashing they handed Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their batters have posted 190-plus totals in all three games this season, and Trent Boult has delivered two double-wicket new-ball maiden overs, but perhaps their biggest trump card if Chennai's conditions play true to type will be their spin attack of Yuzvendra Chahal and homeboy R Ashwin, the highest wicket-taker at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in IPL history.
