CSK vs RR Team Previews

Chennai Super Kings

After having a forgettable outing in the previous season, the Chennai Super Kings seem to be back in form now as they have won 2 of the 3 matches played so far and are 5th on the table.

Ruturaj Gaikwad is in sublime form for the Super Kings as he has scored 2 half-centuries in his 3 outings and is the second-highest run-getter of the tournament. In fact, Ruturaj Gaikwad is one of the favorites to be the IPL 2023 leading run-scorer at all the best IPL betting apps. Along with Devon Conway, he will be looking to give the team yet another good start.

Ajinkya Rahane, who was playing his first match of the season in the team’s latest fixture, started with a bang, scoring a blazing 61 runs. Rahane, along with Shivam Dube, and Ambati Rayudu makes up for a solid middle order, while MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja will play the role of a finisher. The addition of all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius to the team adds depth to the batting.

Sisanda Magala, who was brilliant with the new ball in South Africa’s recent series against the Netherlands, bowled well on his IPL debut in the last match, and we are expecting to see more of him in the upcoming games. Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner are likely to play an important role with the ball in this game.

Rajasthan Royals

Despite being a bit inconsistent, the two big wins in 3 matches have propelled the Rajasthan Royals to the top of the points table, thanks to an excellent NRR.

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler make up one of the best opening pairs in this season of the IPL and the duo has scored 2 half-centuries each. Sanju Samson is a solid performer in the number-3 slot and the team will be banking on him to carry on the innings during the middle overs.

The form of Riyan Parag does remain a cause of concern for the team. Shimron Hetmeyer is at his explosive best toward the end of an inning, and he has found a good partner in the form of debutant Dhruv Jurel.

Yuzvendra Chahal has been excellent with the ball and is the leading wicket-taker for the team. In tandem with Ravichandran Ashwin, Chahal can wreak havoc in the middle overs. Trent Boult will once again get the new ball duties along with Sandeep Sharma, while Jason Holder is likely to be the fifth bowler.

CSK vs RR Toss Prediction

The team winning the toss will likely opt to bat first here. 


Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

As seen in the previous game here between CSK and LSG, the pitch here is excellent to bat on and the team batting first will be looking to set a target of 200 or more to give the bowlers enough to defend. While the quicker bowlers won’t get much help except the good bounce, the spinners will get some help, especially in the second half.

The weather is likely to be warm and humid with temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsius. 


CSK vs RR Betting Tips

While both teams have a strong batting line-up, we feel that it is the bowling that might be the differentiating factor here. While the home team already lacks experienced campaigners in that department, the unavailability of Deepak Chahar due to injury will further weaken their attack, which will be a huge bonus for the RR on this batting track.

    Rajasthan Royals 1st 6 overs

    Over 54.5 (2.52)


Both, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler are in excellent form for the Rajasthan Royals and are powerful hitters of the ball. Given the fact that the CSK bowling isn’t the strongest, we are likely to see plenty of runs during the Powerplay.

    Total Runs in the Highest Scoring Over of the Match

    Over 19.5 (1.80)


The MA Chidambaram Stadium isn’t the biggest one around and the boundaries can be easily cleared by the powerful hitters from both sides. Also, the outfield is on the quicker side, meaning we should get at least one over with 20 or more runs scored.

  1. Betway


    Yuzvendra Chahal to take 2+ wickets



Yuzvendra Chahal won the Purple Cap in the previous season and has carried forward his form to the current season too. He has picked up 8 wickets so far and is the leading wicket-taker for the Royals. Looking at his form and the quality of the pitch at Chennai, we are backing him to take more than 2 wickets here.
