IPL 2018: RR vs CSK Today Match Preview
Chennai Super Kings
Question in detail
RR vs CSK today match: In a must-win situation in all their remaining four games, Royals have gone past the stage of trial and error. They managed to keep themselves alive beating KXIP in the last game. The win must be a confidence booster for them. Three consecutive fifties from Jos Buttler, who hadn't capitalized on a few good opportunities earlier, will be a big relief to Rajasthan. Also, they had their bowlers on right line and length defending a moderate total of 158 runs in their last home game.
Contrary to how Royals have done so far in the tournament, Super Kings have ticked all boxes right with 14 out of 20 possible points in bag. In a rather comfortable position than where RR sits on the points table currently, Chennai is just one win away from the playoffs qualification. And if they win RR vs CSK today match, they will become the second team to cement a spot in the playoffs next to SRH.

Chennai Super Kings don't seem to have any concern with the playing 11 that won them their last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, the issue they still need to address is their death bowling. Also they will miss the right spin option on a track that seems to be supporting slow bowlers.

Ajinkya Rahane (c), Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Mahipal Lomror, Stuart Binny/Rahul Tripathi, Ben Stokes, K Gowtham, Ish Sodhi, Jaydev Unadkat, Anureet Singh/Dhawal Kulkarni, Jofra Archer
If the nature of the track at Sawai Mansingh Stadium doesn't call for looking at a few interchangeable options in the playing eleven, Rajasthan Royals will stick to the same combination that won them the last game. The possible changes for a few spots could be: Stuart Binny for Rahul Tripathi and Anureet Singh/Dhawal Kulkarni.
