MS Dhoni‘s side are proving their doubters wrong as their bowling attack has improved as the season has progressed and the Yellow Army are sitting at the top of the points table with 10 wins in 7 matches. Sanju Samson’s side has continued on their success from last season and have won 4 of their 7 matches, and sit on the 3rd spot. Because of their superior Net run rate, a win for RR over CSK will take Samson’s side to the top of the points table.
RR vs CSK pitch report of Jaipur
In the only match that was played this season in Jaipur, the pitch got slower and difficult to play shots as the match progressed. LSG scored 154 runs and won by 10 wickets. The pitch in Jaipur is expected to be good for batting in the first innings before getting slower in the latter half of the game. This means that spin all-rounders would become crucial.
RR vs CSK: 2 captaincy options that could help you land the 1 crore prize
In any match in the IPL since he’s started opening, Jos Buttler is a safe captaincy pick. The dynamic England opener started the season off in spectacular fashion with 3 fifties in 4 innings. However, after that, his form dipped slightly, bagging 2 ducks in next three innings and scoring 40 (41) vs LSG in Jaipur.
Nonetheless, Buttler would want to shrug off his recent dip with a big performance against CSK. Against CSK, Jos Buttler averages a brilliant 53 and strikes at 146 with 3 fifties in 8 IPL innings. Buttler also field usually at long-on and long-off and takes 1 or 2 or even more catches in a game, boosting his fantasy value, and that might assist you in your ambition of 1 crore fantasy win.
Although Moeen Ali hasn’t been at his best with the bat – part of it has been because he’s been shifted down in the batting order as Rahane, Dube and sometimes Rayudu has gotten promoted over him – we will still back Moeen in this game for a safe captaincy choice for your fantasy reason.
The reason for that is Rajasthan Royals have 3 left-handers in their side – Jaiswal, Paddikal, and Hetmyer. On a pitch that helped the slower bowlers in the previous match in Jaipur, we expect Moeen Ali to bowl at least 3 overs this time. His batting can be seen as a bonus from a fantasy standpoint, making him a good option to become you C/Vc and could help you in landing the 1 crore mega prize.
