Indian Super League 2021 Match 12

Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals – April 19th

Rajasthan Royals:

They have begun their IPL 2021 campaign with losing their opening encounter before reverting to winning ways. Despite Ben Stokes’ unfortunate injury, RR put in a spectacular bowling execution against the Delhi Capitals. 

While Chetan Sakariya and Jaydev Unadkat have been magnificent so far, David Miller and Chris Morris’ feats with the bat hold them in a good position. Worries about their batting persist and they need Jos Buttler to fire quickly in IPL 2021.

Chennai Super Kings:

RR’s opponents, Chennai Super Kings also similarly began their IPL 2021 campaign; a win followed by a loss. They seem a lot resolved unit in IPL 2021. Although they did come up with a loss in their first game, a dazzling opening spell from Deepak Chahar cemented the way for a victory against the Punjab Kings. 

Although the Super Kings look well-outfitted in all three areas, they might consider bringing in Lungi Ngidi replacing Dwayne Bravo. Nonetheless, Chennai claims depth, class and stability, which should hold them in a good position ahead of Monday’s match. 

Possible playing XI: Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad/Robin Uthappa, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Dwayne Bravo and Deepak Chahar.


The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:

Match number 12 of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2021 will witness Chennai Super Kings take on Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday.

The Wankhede wicket has played a lot inversely than what we have been familiar with seeing over the past few times. Although the first two matches saw totals in surplus of 200 being heaped up for fun, the average first-innings tally in the following matches has been a mere 127.

With a coating of grass on the wicket, the surface has encouraged swing bowlers early on, although there is sufficient seam movement accessible off the wicket as well. As the game proceeds, the speedsters have exploited the change of pace to their gain, with the ball riveting off the wicket.

Although there isn’t much spin on the bid, the spin bowlers have used the extra bounce available off the pitch to great effect. The batters will need to abide by their time on the crease to safeguard a smooth movement of play in the powerplay overs.

Wickets in hand will be crucial, with 155-165 being a tricky total at Wankhede. Both sides will consider chasing upon winning the toss as dew will play a part in the second half.

Tops Value:

Although both sides are well-tallied on paper, Chennai Super Kings will hold the advantage in the vital encounter, owing to their experience. But Sanju Samson and the team have shown plenty of potential in the IPL 2021 so far and should maintain the three-time champions CSK on their toes.

Chennai is at the pre-match odds of 1.76 whereas Rajasthan is at 2.00. If the latter drops below this mark, we’ll perhaps play. But with caution. We don’t want the Royals protecting – it is by far their feeblest outfit.
