Rajasthan Royals opt to bowl after winning the toss against Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede. Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals bounced back after losing their opening fixtures with wins and will look to keep the momentum going. Both teams have gone in with an unchanged squad. A win is important for both the teams because they will play their following game against the in-form RCB.
Rajasthan Royals have had two tremendous games so far. Their newly appointed skipper made an instant statement on captaincy debut with a roaring ton, and although he couldn't finish that game, there were plenty of positives for the Royals who then produced a stunning performance to register a come-from-behind win against the Capitals. The most expensive buy of the 2021 season, Chris Morris, found himself at contrasting ends in each of the first two games but importantly for his team, he delivered when it mattered. For CSK, it is a memorable day as It was on this day in 2008 that CSK played their first-ever IPL game, heralding MS Dhoni's captaincy debut in Yellow. There is also a lot of English stars on both sides, although RR definitely have more in their squad than CSK. The form for both sides so far in this tournament is also similar.
