RR vs CSK Match Prediction & Preview

The Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings are set to clash heads on Saturday when they battle it out at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Sanju Samsonโ€™s side has come off a potentially season-ending loss against the Sunrisers and have a much win game mid-week against the Royal Challengers. If they do win, it will make this game equally as important, with a loss resulting in the end of their playoff chances.

They currently sit equal on points with the Punjab Kings and just one win off a playoff spot. However, their net run rate (-0.369) is a concern. They face RC Bangalore (3rd), Super Kings (1st), Mumbai Indians (5th) and the Knight Riders (4th) to finish their campaign.

Meanwhile, the Super Kings have a game midweek against the last-placed Sunrisers to extend their winning streak to four matches. Two wins from their last four matches would secure them top spot on the ladder heading into the playoffs.

Chennai has an incredibly well-rounded squad with the bat and will look to get off to a positive start in the powerplay on such an unpredictable pitch. It has been a high-scoring pitch in the past, but this season has troubled batsmen. South African Chris Morris will be ready to cause havoc.

The Super Kings have been the best side in the competition this tournament and should come away with a comfortable triumph against the hungry Rajasthan Royals.
