RR vs CSK: IPL 2021: Preview
Rajasthan Royals face a massive challenge as they take on the table-toppers Chennai Super Kings. The Royals suffered a massive loss against the Royal Challengers Bangalore and sit 7th on the points table. Three straight losses have dented the prospects for Sanju Sampson’s side. Their record against CSK hasn’t been impressive and Sampson would like to see a spirited show from his players in this do-or-die game.
The Chennai Super Kings come into this game with a comfortable win against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. They are enjoying great form at the moment and the side hasn’t lost a game yet in UAE this season. They have become the first side to qualify for the playoffs and as Dhoni leads his side into this game he would aim to win and build on the momentum.

RR vs CSK: IPL 2021: Match Prediction
Rajasthan Royals have their task cut out. If they win this game they are in the hunt for the playoffs while a loss would close all doors for the side. Their batting line-up that has had an extended run of poor form will have to stand up and deliver in this game for the side to win. Chennai Super Kings on the other hand are on song and have good depth in batting and bowling and this would make them favorites to win this game.
