Rajasthan Royals will be taking on Chennai Super Kings in the 68th match of IPL 2022. The match will be played at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on 20th May, 7:30 PM IST.
The Royals have won 8 matches and have lost just 5 of their 13 matches so far. With the 3rd position on the points table, they have played rollicking cricket. Their opening partnership of Devdutt Padikkal and Jos Buttler has been doing remarkable for them and the two of them have been scoring the majority of runs for the team. Their bowling attack has been lethal as well and the team has got all the bases covered.
On the other hand Chennai Super Kings have won only 4 and lost 9 of their 13 matches this season. They are 9th on the points table. CSK have struggled throughout the tournament and have failed to impress with their cricket. The only positive for them in the few last matches has been the partnership between Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway. Other than that there has been nothing for them to be happy about. The team will want to finish their tournament on a high in this match and can try out a few new players. Although this is a dead rubber, still this could be an interesting match.
