CSK vs RR Dream11 Prediction: The 12th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Monday, April 19, 2021.
CSK vs RR Match Preview
Chennai Super Kings will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 12th match of the VIVO IPL 2021 on Monday at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Both the teams have played 2 games each, out of which both won one of the matches while lost the other. Chennai Super Kings have lost their first match against Delhi Capitals and made a great comeback in their next game against Punjab Kings. Deepak Chahar was the wrecker-in-chief for CSK as he recorded his best-ever figures in IPL – 4/13 to run through the PBKS batting line-up and script a comfortable win for his side. Dwayne Bravo, Moeen Ali, and Sam Curran also picked a wicket each. Ravindra Jadeja contributed with his brilliant fielding performance as always.
Owing the performance in the previous match, we can not expect many changes in the playing eleven of Chennai Super Kings. Lungi Ngidi, who has completed his quratine can also be included in the playing XI. However, it is yet to be seen that how management will adjust Ngidi in the playing XI. Nevertheless, Chennai boast depth and balance, which should hold them in good stead ahead of Monday’s game.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand have also won their previous match against Delhi Capitals. Jayadev Unadkat was the nightmare for DC batters as he breached the top order of the Delhi Capitals early on in the game. He took the wickets of in-form batsmen like Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan along with Ajinkya Rahane. Chris Morris and David Miller’s exploits with the bat also hold them in good stead. But they want Jos Buttler to fire soon in IPL 2021.
Although both teams look very evenly matched on paper, the Kings have the edge, given their depth in the batting department. With both sides looking to grab another win on Monday, we are in for a riveting IPL 2021 contest in Mumbai.

Top Picks For CSK vs RR
1. Faf du Plessis
He scored an unbeaten 36* while chasing against Punjab Kings (PBKS). He must be looking to get a big inning in this match. He is a safe pick for your fantasy team.
2. Suresh Raina
He smashed a brilliant half-century in the first game against Delhi Capitals (DC). He also holds the record for second-highest run-scorer against Rajasthan Royals in VIVO IPL wherein he has scored a total of 609 runs in 21 innings he played so far. This is what makes him a must pick player for your fantasy team.
3. Chris Morris
He has already showed what he is capable of and why is the most expensive buy of IPL 2021. He is looking in positive touch with both bat and ball. He also led the team to victory in the last match with his explosive batting in the last over.
4. Sanju Samson
The captain of Rajasthan Royals has to bring more runs from his bat to contribute for his team. He can single-handedly change the course of the game on his days, which makes him the best pick for your fantasy team.
5. Sam Curran
He played a match-turning cameo of 34 runs from only 15 deliveries in the first game. In his last game before the IPL, he played a remarkable knock of 95 runs against India. His job now will be to be more clinical with the ball in hand.
6. Deepak Chahar
His four-wicket haul powered Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to a thumping six-wicket win over Punjab Kings in Mumbai on Friday and we can expect some more such spells from him. He is currently the best pick among bowlers.
