CSK vs RR Predicted Playing 11, IPL 2021 Live Updates: Dhoni vs Samson in Mumbai

IPL 2021, CSK vs RR Team Predicted Playing 11 for Today Match LIVE Updates: Chennai Super Kings take on Rajasthan Royals in Indian Premier League match on Monday

IPL 2021, CSK vs RR Team Predicted Playing 11 for Today Match LIVE Updates: Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals bounced back after losing their opening fixtures with wins and will look to keep the momentum going.

CSK skipper Dhoni would have been happy with the bowlers’ performance after they had been taken to the cleaners in the opener. South African pacer Lungi Ngidi is out of quarantine and could be drafted into the playing XI to give more teeth to the CSK pace attack. England all-rounder Moeen Ali was in the thick of action in the win over Punjab and that should please the CSK think-tank. He picked up a wicket with his off-spin and batted fluently.

Dhoni didn’t bat in the game against Punjab after a duck in the opening match. It remains to be seen if the captain chooses to push himself up the order and gives himself the opportunity to find some form.

Meanwhile, Royals would like to see their batsmen fire in unison as the top-order collapsed against Delhi before Miller and Chris Morris pulled them past the line. The Royals bowlers would aim to strike early blows to stifle the CSK batting which has not been dominant while the batsmen need to step up in what promises to be an interesting battle between two sides led by wicket-keepers.

Teams:

CSK: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (c & wk), Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, KM Asif, Deepak Chahar, Dwayne Bravo, Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, N Jagadeesan, Karn Sharma, Lungi Ngidi, Mitchell Santner, Ravindra Jadeja, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shardul Thakur, Sam Curran, R Sai Kishore, Moeen Ali, K Gowtham, Cheteshwar Pujra, Harishankar Reddy, Bhagath Varma, C Hari Nishaanth

RR: Sanju Samson (c & wk), Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Manan Vohra, Anuj Rawat, Riyan Parag, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Mahipal Lomror, Shreyas Gopal, Mayank Markande, Andrew Tye, Jaydev Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi, Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya, KC Cariappa, Liam Livingstone, Kuldip Yadav, Akash Singh

CSK vs RR Predicted Playing 11, IPL 2021 Live Updates:

In IPL history so far, both teams have clashed in 23 games of which 14 matches have been won by Chennai Super Kings, while Rajasthan Royals have won 9 games. Since 2015, both teams are neck and neck against each other winning 4 matches each.

Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals would look to build on their first wins and gain momentum when they clash in Mumbai on Monday. The two sides bounced back after losing their opening fixtures with wins, albeit in contrasting styles. While the MS Dhoni-led CSK had it easy against Punjab Kings, the Royals scraped through against Delhi Capitals in the final over. Both teams would be eyeing a second win to give their campaign a boost. CSK hit back superbly after a chastening defeat to Capitals with Deepak Chahar putting his hand up with a four-wicket haul to break the back of the Punjab batting line-up, setting up a six-wicket victory.
