Teams look for inspiration after crushing losses
Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings come off the back of demoralising losses in their Saturday fixtures to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals respectively. They have had dwindling returns in IPL 2020 with wins interspersed by long line of losses. Both teams were in line to get to wins on Saturday but lost in the final few overs despite dominating their respective games.
Rajasthan have a quality batting line-up on paper, but hasn’t quite clicked this season. RR rely too much on Jofra Archer with the ball,and it has often proved to be their downfall this season. Their overall bowling attack needs some oomph. They have odds of 2.00 to beat Chennai in this fixture.
After an underwhelming season so far, Chennai Super Kings Hyderabad seemed to have slowly found their mojo back in the last couple of matches but the loss to Delhi Capitals on Saturday would peg their hopes back considerably. CSK have a good bowling attack but the batting has let them down time and again. Their odds of getting a win stand at 1.80.

Overall record in favour of Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings have the highest win percentage in the history of the IPL and are best placed to boast of a past record in comparison to Rajasthan Royals whose only title triumph came in the first edition of the tournament in 2008. Overall, CSK have 14 wins in 23 games as against the 9 wins RR have.
This year, in the previous clash between these teams at Sharjah, Rajasthan Royals won by 16 runs in a high-scoring game. CSK have 3 wins in 9 matches this season and have 6 points. RR, on the other hand, also have just 6 points after 9 matches.
TIP: Rajasthan Royals have hit the most sixes in IPL 2020 and have odds of 2.05 to hit more sixes than CSK in this game.
Keep an eye on…
Jofra Archer: The relentless wicket-taker in the side and a champion fast bowler, Jofra Archer has a terrific record against teams that struggled against pace. His sharp pace and bounce will pose a stiff test to CSK.
Chennai top-order: Despite poor returns as a whole this season, the top-order has fired in parts. Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu and Sam Curran have all had excellent outings with the bat but rarely together. They can get their act together against Rajasthan and win this game.
RECOMMENDED BET: CSK are slowly getting better this season and have odds of 1.80 to win this game
