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
MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings will take on Rajasthan Royals in the 12th Match of the VIVO IPL 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.
Both the sides are facing the same fortune with winning one of the two matches they played so far. Chennai Super Kings might have had a tough time in their first match against Delhi Capitals but they bounced back in their next game against Punjab Kings, where they beat them by 6 wickets.
Deepak Chahar destroyed the batting line up of Punjab Kings as he returned with the figures of 4/13, the best from Chennai bowlers. Sam Curran, Moeen Ali and Bravo also picked one wicket each. Ravindra Jadeja contributed with his brilliant fielding performance as always. This helped Chennai Super Kings to restrict Punjab to a low total of 106 runs.
Chennai Super Kings easily chased this total down with the help of 36 runs from Faf du Plessis and 46 runs from Moeen Ali. With the return of Lungi Ngidi, this team looks even more balanced and will be looking to win another game.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have lost their first match against Punjab Kings and came back strongly in their second match against Delhi Capitals.
Chris Morris justified his price tag of being the most expensive player in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as he guided his side to a 3 wicket win. Morris finished the contest unbeaten on 36 from 18 balls as the Royals won the contest by three wickets.
Rajasthan started the 148-run chase on a dreadful note losing three top-order batsmen (Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Manan Vohra) inside the powerplay overs. However, David Miller’s valiant 43-ball 62, which included seven fours and two sixes, kept Royals in the hunt and Morris completed the rest. The same can be expected from them in the next match with few changes in their playing XI.
As long as their head to head record is concerned, out of the total of 24 clashes between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals have won only 10 games while Chennai Super Kings won the rest 14 games.
