RR vs CSK: Preview


After sumptuous bowling & fielding effort in the last game which CSK won comfortably against Kolkata, they now look more dangerous & almost ready to step-in the Play-Offs early than others. While Rajasthan Royals will look for change of fortunes as they sit just above Bangalore i.e. position no. 7 in the points table. While, comparing both the teams CSK look more balanced & in good-form than Rajasthan in terms of both batting & bowling despite Dwayne Bravo being injured. At last expect a nail-bitter again on week-day.
