IPL 2019: Match 25 - CSK Look to Strengthen Their Top Position


Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur is set to host Chennai Super Kings (CSK) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR) battle as the hosts look to trample the table toppers. Rajasthan Royals have had a poor season until now as they have managed only one win from 5 games whereas Chennai Super Kings have won 5 out of their 6 this season.

Rajasthan Royals are currently placed at the 7th place, ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore who are yet to win a game in IPL 12. However, things can turn pretty quickly in cricket and any team can gain momentum to get on a roll. Until now, it has seemed unlikely.

Team News

Rajasthan Royals might have to take some tough decisions right away if they are to compete well against top quality teams. Ajinkya Rahane might have to sit out for a few games and even Ben Stokes must make way for Ashton Turner if it comes to that.

Chennai Super Kings once again proved that they are the best team this season as they had it all planned up for the likes of Andre Russel, Sunil Narine, and KKR’s bowlers. It remains to be seen what their plan would be against Rajasthan Royals which is lagging at the bottom end of the table.
