  • Daryl Mitchell hit 63 runs from 34 balls in Friday’s defeat to Gujarat and the New Zealander is our tip for CSK’s highest run scorer against Rajasthan Royals. Tushar Deshpande took 2/33 in the last game and the pace bowler is well worth backing as CSK’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Skipper Sanju Samson was on form once again in the last game with 86 runs from 46 balls and he is well worth backing as Rajasthan Royals’ highest run scorer against CSK. Yuzvendra Chahal has 14 wickets across the campaign and he will enjoy bowling in Chepauk. He is our pick for Rajasthan Royals’ top wicket taker on Sunday.
  • After an impressive last four years at all levels, we recommend backing Daryl Mitchell to hit the most boundaries in this game.

Toss Predictions

Teams batting first have won almost 59% of IPL games in Chepauk so our prediction is that the captains on both sides will want to bat first ahead of the toss.

Weather & Pitch Report


Sunny conditions are expected throughout this game on Sunday in Chepauk with the temperature at 33 degrees from start to finish. It will also be humid with the level above 70%.

Pitch Report:

The average first innings score at the MA Chidambaram Stadium is 164.66 but we expect a par score to be slightly above that in this game. There will be turn for the spinners and scoring quick runs during the middle overs could be tough on this pitch.

Team NEWS: 

CSK Team News: 

There was a return to the side for Rachin Ravindra ahead of Friday’s game with the experienced English right-arm pace bowler Richard Gleeson dropping out of the team. Matheesha Pathirana has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament with a hamstring injury.

RR Team News: 

Jos Buttler continues to recover from split webbing on his hand and he is likely to play only as an impact player during the batting innings. Apart from that, Rajasthan Royals have a fully fit squad to select from ahead of this match on Sunday afternoon.

Winning Chances: 

Whenever these two teams go head to head there is plenty of attention with so many top players on show. This game should be no different and there are top four places in the league up for grabs as well. Our prediction is for a low-scoring contest with both teams having a chance of victory well into the second innnings of the game. However, overall, we are backing CSK to pick up another win at home in Chepauk.

Chennai Super Kings to beat Rajasthan Royals

Chennai Super Kings a 80% chance to win this match 

Rajasthan Royals a 20% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Chennai Super Kings 

Daryl Mitchell 

the New Zealand batting all-rounder was hitting the ball cleanly in Friday’s match when he hit seven fours and three sixes.

Ruturaj Gaikwad 

although it has been an excellent IPL 2024 season for the skipper with the bat, he will be determined to contribute in this match after making a three ball duck on Friday.

Moeen Ali 

the England international spinner showed his batting ability with 56 runs from 36 balls against Gujarat. His bowling should be effective in Chepauk.

Tushar Deshpande 

the 28 year old right-arm medium fast bowler is CSK’s leading wicket taker across the tournament and dismissed both of Gujarat’s openers in the last game.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Ajinkya Rahane, Shaik Rasheed, Aravelly Avanish, Sameer Rizvi, Mukesh Choudhary 

Ajinkya Rahane has been a consistent player from the bench across the tournament. We expect him to come in for Tushar Deshpande during the batting innings in this game.

Rajasthan Royals 

Sanju Samson 

with over 471 runs in the 2024 IPL, the keeper-batter-skipper is in the top five run scorers and fully deserves his place in India’s T20 World Cup squad.

Riyan Parag 

the 22 year old right-hander has had an excellent tournament so far with 436 runs coming at an average of 54.50.

Ravichandran Ashwin 

the bowling all-rounder formerly played for CSK so he will be keen to perform in this game. He comes into this match after taking 3/24 against Delhi Capitals.

Yuzvendra Chahal 

the spinner got the big wicket of Rishabh Pant in the last match. That dismissal saw him bring up 350 T20 wickets across his career.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen, Kunal Singh Rathore, Tanush Kotian 

Although the game situation could always prompt a different move, we expect to see the regular impact player switch between Yuzvendra Chahal and Jos Buttler during this match.

Team Forms: 

CSK Team Form: 

Chennai Super Kings have lost three of their last five matches in the 2024 IPL.

RR Team Form: 

Rajasthan Royals have had an excellent tournament but are hoping to avoid their third defeat in a row.
