Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are set to clash in their final league bout at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. This clash is important from the point of view of deciding the top two of the tournament.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
From the point of view of Rajasthan, this match is crucial for them to guarantee a place in the top 2. They have a better NRR than LSG which is currently occupying second place. If Rajasthan manages to win, they will leap from Lucknow and gain the second spot which gives them an extra opportunity to make it to the finals.
However, RR will have to play good cricket and knock off defending champs CSK. The poor form of Buttler in the second half of the season is a concern for the pink army. However, the return of Shimron Hetmyer will give an added advantage to Rajasthan.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
Chennai has already been knocked out of the tournament. However, the Dhoni-led side will be playing for pride. They can also try out a few players who have warmed the bench the entire season like Rajvardhan, the star from Under 19 India.
CSK is expected to give another go to the debutants who played the previous game against GT as the Kings would have one eye set on the future. It would also be exciting to see the new Malinga i.e. Matheesha Pathirana facing off against the legend Malinga who is the bowling coach of RR.
WAGING ODDS: RR (1.72)VS CSK (2.15)
RR are the favorites and are priced at 1.72, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹172.
CSK are underdogs and are priced at 2.15 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹215.
RR’s fate for the playoffs depends on this game, so they are expected to come out on top. CSK is unlikely to play its first choice available players which makes their side less experienced than Rajasthan.
