Its the battle of the 2 most successful Captains of the Indian T20 season in Rajasthan Royals’ Steve Smith & Chennai Super Kings’ Thala MS Dhoni. The battle is extremely crucial for Rajasthan as they do not have the likes of Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes for their first game of the tournament as the former arrived recently and is under quarantine protocols while the latter is still in New Zealand attending to his father.
Chennai will be on a high after Sam Curran, Rayudu & Faf Du Plessis’ heroics in the very first game to help them secure a convincing win over reigning champions Mumbai Indians.
RR vs CSK Venue
The match is all set to be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium after the first 3 games were slated in Abu Dhabi & Dubai. The ground is comparatively smaller so problems for the bowlers might just seem to be coming up with this fixture.
RR vs CSK Pitch Report
While the first 3 games have favored the bowlers and made it tough for the side batting second to chase, we might look at a completely different scenario in this game. It will be a batting-friendly track and we are expecting a high scoring game finally.

RR vs CSK Gameplay
We are expecting MS Dhoni to win the toss and yet again choose to chase the target. The score to chase could be a huge one provided the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal, Utthappa & Samson fire up the order supported by Tom Curran & David Miller. We are then eyeing a Dhoni Desert storm backed by a Bravo(if he plays) or a Kedar Jadhav special to seal the deal for the Chennai Super Kings’ second victory of the tournament.
