RR Vs CSK Dream11 Team: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has dominated Rajasthan Royals (RR) right since the beginning of the IPL. Out of the 21 games that these two teams have played in the tournament so far, CSK has won 14, while RR has been able to win just 7.
The match will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium and will start at 07:30 PM IST. The weather forecast says that the temperature could go up to 40 degree Celsius in Sharjah on Tuesday which means it’s not going to be easy for the players.
After winning the inaugural season of the IPL, RR has largely been an average side and has not made the playoffs on too many occasions. CSK, on the other hand, has qualified for the playoffs every time they have played the IPL and they have also won the title thrice.
There have been a total of 13 T20 internationals played at Sharjah so far, 9 out of which have been won by the teams batting first. However, considering the fact that the dimensions of this ground are short, the team winning the toss might opt to chase.
RR Vs CSK Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction
RR will be without two of their key players, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes and that reduces the strength of their squad quite a bit. CSK, on the other hand, found their feet a little bit in the first game of the tournament and will be a tad more confident coming into this game than RR.
The men in yellow will be the favorites in this encounter.
RR playing 11 (expected): Yashasvi Jaiswal, Robin Uthappa, Steve Smith (C), Sanju Samson (WK), Riyan Parag, David Miller, Mahipal Lomror, Tom Curran, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadlkat
CSK playing 11 (expected): Murali Vijay, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (C & WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Lungi Ngidi
Faf du Plessis: Faf du Plessis looked in great touch in the first game against MI and the way he approached his innings, it seems he has been asked to anchor the CSK innings, batting at no. 3. So, he will try and bat long periods and since he is a decent player of spin as well, he can be backed as Dream11 captain.
Sanju Samson: This IPL is more about players who have got a range of stroke-play rather than the players who have got a lot of power. Sanju Samson is the kind of player who can bat at a brisk rate without taking too much risk and that’s because he has got the range. He is an ideal player to tackle the CSK attack.
Sam Curran: Dhoni is looking to utilize Sam Curran with both bat and ball. Rather than slotting him down the order at no. 8, Dhoni seems to have planned to use him as a floater and use him in different stages with the ball too. Since Curran is in the game all the time, he can fetch a lot of fantasy points on his day.
Jofra Archer: Jofra Archer bowled with a lot of pace in the recently concluded T20I series against Australia and he will be looking to hurry the CSK batsmen first up with the new ball. The UAE pitches, at this stage of the tournament, are offering a fair bit of carry to the fast bowlers. Jofra would definitely enjoy that.
