The Chennai Super Kings, who opened their account in Pepsi IPL 2014 with a 93-run win over the Delhi Daredevils, clash with the Rajasthan Royals in the 10th match of the season.
Both teams have a solitary win from two outings – RR got the better of Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening game – and a win for either team will mean a move up the ladder.
CSK will want a repeat of their clinical performance that saw them post 177 runs on the board and then demolish the Delhi Daredevils for 84. All their key batsmen were among the runs, the bowlers maintained their line and length, and the fielders turned into supermen while pulling off sensational catches. MS Dhoni and Stephen Fleming couldn’t have asked for anything more from the CSK lads.
RR, on the other hand, did well to post 191 runs on the board but were blown away by some out-of-the-world hitting by Glenn Maxwell and David Miller. Rahul Dravid, Shane Watson and co. would have worked out areas they need to improve on and will be hoping they can keep things simple and do the basics right more often than they did in their previous outing.
What our expert think about the game? Read on...
Both teams have won one match each, but if you look at their performances you will find CSK batting has been more consistence so far. They have scored 200+ in the first game and then close to 200 in the second. Whereas, Rajasthan batsmen got the form in the last match only but then they managed to loose that game after scoring a descent total.
So if CSK bowling was worried in the 1st game, what about Royals bowling in the last match. Though CSK seems to be the favorite to win this match, they have record to loose against the Royals in the past. So our experts are expecting tight match today and if Royals got the opportunity to bat first and able to put descent total. This match can go either way.
Since this match is very important we suggest to go with the team who bat first though we are more in favor of CSK.
