Match Prediction

Chennai are a good side and their confidence is on high after their win against Mumbai in inaugural match. Rajasthan on the other hand are playing their first match and I guess it won't be easy for Rajasthan to overcome the mighty Chennai. I would give 80-20 in favor of Chennai.

Rajasthan Royals Probable Playinng XI

Yashasvi Jaiswal
Sanju Samson
Robin Uthappa
Steve Smith
David Miller
Riyan Parag
Rahul Tewatia
Shreyas Gopal
Jofra Archer
Tom Curran
Jaydev Unadkat

Player to Watch Out : Sanju Samson

Chennai Super Kings Playing XI

Murali Vijay
Shane Watson
Faf Du Plessis
Ambati Rayudu
Kedar Jadhav
Sam Curran
MS Dhoni
Ravindra Jadeja
Piyush Chawla
Deepak Chahar
Lungi Ngidi

Player to Watch Out : Faf du Plessis

Chennai are highly like to go with same playing eleven from their previous match which they won. Despite openers Murali Vijay and Shane Watson failing in first match, Rayudu-du Plessis duo did their job brilliantly. Crucial contribution from Sam Curran helped the team. Bowling also looked specially Deepak Chahar and Piyush Chawala. Ngidi and Jadeja were a bit expensive and would want to improve their stats now.

Jos Buttler will miss the first match as he is in mandatory quarantine in the UAE with his family. Since there is no updates on availablility of star allrounder Ben Stokes, Rajasthan will most likely be taking the field without two of their prime weapons Buttler and Stokes. I am expecting David Miller in the middle order. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sanju Samson will probably open the innings with Robin Uthappa at number 3. Steve Smith at number 4 is a crucial member in the lineup. Guys like Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia has to step up with their performance for sure. Jofra Archer and Tom Curran will be foreign pacers along with Jaydev Unadkat.

The match prediction and probable playing eleven selection is purely based on writer's opinion.
