IPL 2015: Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings at Ahmedabad, pick of the tweets

Rajasthan Royals (RR) will lock horns against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 15th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 at Ahmedabad on Sunday. Both the teams have been dominant so far, winning all their matches. Hence this game will break either team’s unbeaten run in this edition of IPL.

For RR, Steve Smith has led the team magnificently, in the absence of his compatriot Shane Watson, who was out of action with an injury. However it is expected that Watson will make a comeback. The team has talented bunch of players like Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and Deepak Hooda. The batting still relies on the Smith and Rahane as the duo have the capability to win matches.

In the bowling department, Chris Morris and Dhawal Kulkarni were brilliant in the previous match. James Faulkner has gone for a lot runs while Tim Southee hasn’t been consistent. The veteran Pravin Tambe is again delivering goods for RR and his inclusion in the team comes without any hesitation.

On the other hand, CSK are a completely different side. Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith gave a rollicking start against Mumbai Indians (MI) and showed why they are two devastating openers of modern day cricket. The team mainly is known for a never ending batting order which comprises of Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo.

The pace bowling has been spearheaded by Ashish Nehra, contributing with important wickets at the top. Ishwar Pandey, Mohit Sharma and Bravo form a decent pace trio while Ravichandra Ashwin and Jadeja are their main spinners.  Jadeja hasn’t contributed with the bat or ball and CSK will want him to deliver.

The match will be played in the hot conditions on an inconsistent Motera pitch at Ahmedabad. It will be a stiff test for both the teams and one has to wait and watch who sweats the first.
