Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face Rajasthan Royals (RR) hoping to keep their play-off hopes alive in the ongoing IPL 2020 campaign on Monday. Also, it is scheduled to take place at 7:30 PM IST. The toss will take place at 7 PM IST at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Both CSK and RR are sitting at the bottom of the standings, with MS Dhoni’s team just one place above Steve Smith’s side. Both teams have three wins against their name from nine matches and are on the verge of elimination. In the two teams’ previous encounter, Rajasthan got the better of Chennai by 16 runs on the back of Sanju Samson’s whirlwind 74 and Steve Smith’s 47-ball 69.

CSK vs RR:

Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals clash in the Indian Premier League with their eyes on the play-off spot. It is a blow for CSK as their influential all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been ruled out for at least a few days due to a groin injury. It was a nightmarish outing for CSK fielders against Delhi as they dropped Dhawan on 25 and 79, apart from failing to latch on to a half chance and a run-out opportunity, and Dhoni would certainly seek improvement in that department.

RR also find themselves in a very difficult situation and desperately need to explore ways to close down games. One good thing for RR is the return to form of their skipper Steve Smith, who made 57 on Saturday, but star all-rounder Ben Stokes is yet to fire after having joined the team late.

While Jos Buttler has not been consistent enough with the bat. Sanju Samson has been subdued after his early exploits while Robin Uthappa seems to have found some form at the top, scoring 41 off 22 balls against RCB. The Jofra Archer-led bowling attack looked ordinary in front of the marauding RCB batsmen.
