Today the teams of Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings will face-to-face in the 68th match of IPL 15. This match will be played at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. RR has played 13 matches and has won 8 and is present in the third place in the points table. Their net run rate is +0.304. CSK could win just four after playing 13 matches. The net run rate of CSK is -0.206.
Various apprehensions are being expressed about the role of captain Dhoni. If this is Mahi’s last season, the team would like to gift him victory. Weak bowling has been a problem for the team. In such a situation, Moeen Ali’s bowling can change the course of the match.
Chennai Super Kings was the champion last year. Its performance this year has been very poor. From handing over the captaincy of the team to Ravindra Jadeja to his withdrawal, CSK has been in the news due to controversies. Giving a chance to the bench strength, Chennai would like to bid farewell to the IPL with a win.
Rajasthan Royals is currently at number 3 in the points table. By winning this match, she will try her best to be in the top 2. There is a constant struggle between Lucknow and Rajasthan for the number two position. Lucknow consolidated their position in the top 2 with a 2-run win against Kolkata.
Season’s highest run-scorer Jos Buttler and purple cap holder Yuzvendra Chahal will leave no stone unturned to bring the team back into the top two. If the team has to make a big score, then the team will also be hoping for fiery innings from Yashasvi Jaiswal.
RR Probable XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Obed McCoy
CSK Probable XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Mitchell Santner, Prashant Solanki, Matheesha Pathirana, Mukesh Choudhary
With each match that I watch, my love for the game just increases. All I dream of is to join my passion for writing with that of the game and pen down the live-action.
As a person, I am a quick learner and work well in a team for that is what wins the series.
