The surface is good for batting and the ball will come onto the bat nicely. The quicker bowlers will have to use variations as there is not much help on offer. Spinners will play an important role once again. Winning the toss and bowling first is a wise choice on this wicket.
RR vs CSK MATCH PREDICTION
Chennai Super Kings continue to be inconsistent with their performances. Their key players have not stepped up regularly. Going by current form and performance, Rajasthan Royals are clear favorites to win this game.
