The first match of Tuesday, will be between the most dominant Ipl team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and a determined Rajasthan Royals (RR). While CSK will aim to win and top the table, RR will try to stop CSK’s run. Astrologer Pandit Anil Chaubey makes his predictions on the match.
After Chennai Super Kings‘ (CSK) home matches were shifted to Ranchi, many were unhappy about the situation. However, playing at MS Dhoni‘s hometown, Chennai will surely feel at home. Tied at the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) points table with Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), CSK will be aiming to win and remove KXIP from the No 1 position.
Facing CSK are the third-placed Rajasthan Royals (RR). Rajasthan are flying high after scoring an impressive win against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against whom they chased down a massive 191-run target on Sunday night.
Toss: Rajasthan are likely to win the toss and elect to field first. In the last match, Rajasthan chased down a huge target, so they will be high on confidence going into the game. It is also known that MS Dhoni prefers to chase and bat first.
Key Players: Rajasthan’s key players will be Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson and Shane Watson. All three of them have done considerably well till now. From the nine games Rahane has played, he has scored 248 runs at an average of 27.55 and has a strike-rate of 119.23. He has scored two half-centuries also. On the other hand, Samson and Watson has provided few vital performances, which have helped their team win matches. Samson’s half-century against Kings XI Punjab at Sharjah helped Rajasthan put up a massive target for Punjab until Glenn Maxwell and David Miller wrecked havoc to chase the target down.
On the other hand, CSK skipper Dhoni will once likely have to take charge. Suresh Raina is also likely to have to play a big innings.
Who will win: Batting first, CSK are likely to score anywhere between 155-170 for five whereas, Rajasthan are likely to chase down the target.
