Ground News

A difficult to bat pitch generally. But chasing isn’t a bad option at this ground as 2nd  batting teams have a 23-10 win-loss record.

Final Thoughts

The pitch seems to be deteriorating a bit, which will give teams batting 1st an advantage. Chennai’s spin bowling resources are much better than RR’s. Royals have one more thing to worry. Buttler has scored 3 50s in his last 3 innings. Next best batsman Sanju Samson has made a total of 53 runs in these 3 matches.

Preview From Other Sources

CricBuzz Preview

As Rajasthan Royals step out with a pink jersey (to promote Cancer awareness) on Friday, they will also be hoping for a change of colours in their fortunes from the previous encounter against Chennai Super Kings. Then, they ran into a rampaging Shane Watson who batted as if he had a point to prove against his former franchise. But times have changed rapidly since that game on April 20.

Since that game, the Royals have chopped and changed their eleven and batting order, seen hot and cold results and now face a must-win situation in every game they play. A confidence-boosting win in their most recent outing against KXIP will hold the Royals in good stead but some concerns linger, particularly with the batting. Jos Buttler’s three consecutive fifties while opening has masked the frailties of the others, but time is running out for the others to make a mark and the team to come good collectively.

On the other hand, CSK is close to a top-four finish and have found different ways and different players to win them games through the season. For a team filled with players on the upper side of 30, a break of five days in this hectic tournament will have done more good than harm.

When: May 11, Friday at 20:00 IST

Where: Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur

What to expect: The dry weather in Jaipur has resulted in the pitches cracking up and spinners are expected to come into play a lot more.

Team News

Rajasthan Royals

They’d not want to change too much from the combination that won their previous game. There are a few interchangeable options for a few spots in the eleven that might be given thought based on the nature of the pitch.

Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Mahipal Lomror, Stuart Binny/Rahul Tripathi, K Gowtham, Ish Sodhi, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Anureet Singh/Dhawal Kulkarni

Chennai Super Kings

While there aren’t any outright concerns about the team, CSK will be wary of their death bowling problem and the right spin options on a pitch that has tended to help the slow bowlers.

Probable XI: Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Dhruv Shorey, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, David Willey, Harbhajan Singh, Lungi Ngidi, Shardul Thakur

Stats and Trivia

Head to Head of teams: RR 6 – 12 CSK

Team Record at that particular venue: RR 2 – 2 CSK

Interesting face-offs

Raina vs RR: Raina has scored the most runs against RR than any other player – 517 runs from 18 innings at 28.72 (SR 137.14, 3 – 50s).

Dhoni vs RR: Amongst the sides against whom he batted at least thrice in IPL, RR is the only team against whom Dhoni averages less than 30 (28.22 in 16 innings with a HS of 41*).

Venue trends

Jaipur has been the toughest venue this IPL when it comes to hitting sixes – a six every 28.79 balls compared to the tournament average of 16.11 after 41 games.

Pacers have enjoyed Jaipur pitch more than the spinners. They have taken 24 wickets at 18.63 and a wicket every 13.42 balls (both the best for pacers at any venue this season) while the ER of 8.33 is the second best for them at any venue.

IPL 2018 trends

RR have taken the fewest wickets in this season – 50. Their spinners have been way more effective than their pacers having taken 17 wickets to 15 and concede at 7.31 per over compared to 9.31 by the pacers.

On the other hand, CSK have been the best batting side of the tournament as they lead the charts for average (36.90 vs tournament average 26.99), scoring rate (9.35 vs 8.61) and have lost the fewest wickets (50).

K Gowtham has been the lead wicket taker among spinners in the first six overs with five scalps. He has been economic at this stage conceding at 6.56.

What they said:

Ish Sodhi: To have (Warne) as part of the mentorship group is good for me. He has been really good in demanding the best out of me. He is always aggressive, encouraging me to spin the ball harder. In Twenty20s, it is easy to have a defensive mindset. Warne attacked and he was good at it and he is instilling that in us which is a good thing. Twenty20 has become a defensive game and it is all about trying to stop runs. The best way to stop runs is by taking wickets. Being aggressive is the best thing and that is what he is drilling into my brain.

Stephan Fleming: He’s (Rahane) a very fine player. And he’s doing a nice job of captaining Rajasthan. We need to get him out early, he could be a very good influence at the top of the order. He’s a lot more attacking than what people think. I regard him as a dangerous player. He’s a very nice foil. If there’s someone playing aggressive and playing well, he can be the constant through the innings. So removing him means it opens up the opportunity to expose the middle order. If he plays well, it allows the likes of Buttler and Stokes and the hitters in the side a lot more freedom. I think he’s an important wicket for us and any time you get a captain early is good.

Big Picture

Barring their return from a two-year absence, there are not many similarities between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings. CSK have mastered the art of pacing an innings, while Royals have repeatedly stumbled to sub-par scores. CSK are approaching the playoffs, while Royals are fighting to stay relevant in the race for the playoffs. There were questions about CSK’s ageing group of players, but they have held on to catches under pressure, while Royals’ season has been married by costly drops.

The contrasting results are down to critical differences. CSK identified their best combination early, and gave their players well-defined roles. Ambati Rayudu, the floater in the batting line-up, has had his best IPL season, while Shane Watson has provided them firepower at the top and tidy overs with the ball. And MS Dhoni has rolled back the years with his big hitting.

Royals’ big players, on the other hand, have not fired like they can. D’Arcy Short has sunk from the highs of the BBL, while Ben Stokes and Jaydev Unadkat continue to search for form. To add to their concerns, captain Ajinkya Rahane has had a mixed season.

A win for CSK on Friday will take them closer to the playoffs, and put Royals on the brink of elimination.

In the news

CSK physiotherapist Tommy Simsek hinted that seamer Deepak Chahar, who was nursing a hamstring injury, could return against Royals.

After playing just one match in IPL 2018, England quick Mark Wood has flown back home to prepare for the Test series against Pakistan that begins on May 24.

Previous meeting

Watson smashed the season’s fastest century, as CSK racked up 204 and then skittled Royals for 140.

Likely XIs

Rajasthan Royals: 1 Ajinkya Rahane (capt), 2 Jos Buttler (wk), 3 Sanju Samson, 4 Ben Stokes, 5 Stuart Binny, 6 K Gowtham, 7 Mahipal Lomror, 8 Jofra Archer, 9 Jaydev Unadkat, 10 Ish Sodhi, 11 Anureet Singh

Chennai Super Kings: 1 Shane Watson, 2 Ambati Rayudu, 3 Suresh Raina, 4 Dhruv Shorey, 5 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 6 Dwayne Bravo, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 David Willey, 9 Harbhajan Singh, 10 Lungi Ngidi, 11 Shardul Thakur

Strategy punt

There is a case for CSK to open their bowling with Ravindra Jadeja. Rahane has managed only 40 runs off 36 balls against left-arm spinners this season while losing his wicket twice in six innings.

Short, meanwhile, doesn’t fare too well against offspinners. While he strikes at 147.8 against them, he averages 11.3 and has got out to them thrice in four innings.

Rayudu is a prolific batsman in the Powerplay. He scores at 9.64 an over during this phase and has been dismissed only once in seven innings, while averaging 172. He has shown the tendency to cut loose after the first six overs. Royals, however, could counter that by bowling offspinner K Gowtham to him. With five wickets, Gowtham has been Royals’ most successful bowler in the Powerplay.

Stats that matter

  • CSK have won four out of their last five games against Royals, and a former Royals player has had a decisive hand in each of the wins: Ravindra Jadeja won the Man-of-the-Match award thrice, and Watson once.
  • Stokes has an interesting dynamic with Imran Tahir in IPLs. While he has scored an average of two runs per ball against the legspinner, he has also lost his wicket twice in three innings to him.
  • Dhoni is 63 runs away from completing 6000 runs in T20 cricket. He will become the fifth Indian batsman to the milestone, after Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Gautam Gambhir. Dhoni is also 79 runs away from completing 4000 runs in the IPL.

Fantasy pick

Buttler has peaked in the second half of the season with three successive half-centuries. Since he moved from the middle order to the top, Royals’ Powerplay run rate has shot up from 7.62 (the worst among all teams) to 10.39 (the best).

Dhoni relishes facing this Royals attack. The CSK captain has faced 122 balls from them in all T20s and hit 200 runs while losing his wicket just twice. Overall, he strikes a boundary every 4.7 balls against them.
