Rajasthan Royals will face Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021 Match 47 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Saturday, October 2nd. Rajasthan Royals lost in their last match by 7 wickets to Royal Challengers Bangalore, while Chennai Super Kings won against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 6 wickets.
Rajasthan Royals (RR) will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to keep themselves alive in the race to the play-offs. CSK has already qualified for the play-offs and so the result of the game will not matter much to the team.
RR lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their last match by 7 wickets. RR batted first and Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal gave their team a good start. The pair scored 77 runs for the opening wicket but RR was unable to capitalize on the start given by the openers and was limited to a total of 149. For RR their bowling was out of order and the opposition chased the score in 17 left. Mustafizur Rahman bowled well and took two wickets for 20 runs in his 3 overs. The form of two strong foreign players Chris Morris and Liam Livingstone hurts them the most. RR can try to bring in David Miller for the next game in playing 11. Also, the Indian batsmen in the middle-lower order score no points.
CSK is the first team to qualify for the playoffs this season. Playing against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), CSK threw first and they capped the opposition to a total of 134. Josh Hazlewood was the best bowler for the team with 3 layoffs for 24 runs. CSK chased the goal with the loss of 4 wickets and took a 6 wicket win over SRH. Dwayne Bravo is bowling very well in the tournament and Hazlewood got his rhythm back and that was positive for the team. CSK has now qualified for play-offs and so they can now try out some news faces in the squad. CSK can now give opportunities to Robin Uthappa, Imran Tahir or Mitchell Santner in the games for the play-off phase.
Rajasthan Royals – LLLWW
Three defeats in the last three games tell the story of the champions of 2008. For RR, their blow was the biggest disappointment. No other batsman except Sanju Samson has scored consistently for the team. Chris Morris, the most expensive auction in the history of IPL, must contribute to the success of the team with his all-round skills.
Chennai Super Kings – WWWWLO
Four wins from the last five games show that CSK are in incredible form this season and that they have performed excellently as a couple. The team is full of match winners and everyone is doing the job that is expected of them. The team has covered all bases and is a strong contender for the trophy.

With incredible form by their side, CSK are the clear favorites to win this match.
Of the five matches played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, four have so far been won by the chasing team in the second leg. This shows that hitting on this surface gets easier in the second half of the match. Spinners can also get help from the field. The team that wins the toss must therefore choose to bowl first on this surface. 170-180 is the defendable total for the team that hits first.
