CSK vs RR: The Chennai Super Kings who are at the top of the pile will next face the Rajasthan Royals in the 25th match of the competition which will be played at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Royals who are struggling to get going would be hoping to put up a decent show at their home against a quality side like Chennai to get themselves the momentum going forward.
Their only win of the season came against Royal Challengers Bangalore by 7 wickets courtesy a magical bowling spell from Shreyas Gopal who scalped 3 wickets for just 12 runs from his quota of 4 overs which also included a maiden. It was a confidence booster win for Rajasthan after slumping to three back-to-back defeats in their opening 3 games. But, the story remained the same after that win as they have now lost two more games.

- Rajasthan Royals haven’t looked settled and with the injury to Sanju Samson, their batting looks even more helpless.
- Unadkat can be brought back in the place of S Midhun who did not had a debut to remember in the last game.
