The IPL 2023 has entered the second week of the tournament and all the franchises are getting to know their strengths or weaknesses. As of now, the IPL 2023 point table has come up with a lot of surprises. Rajasthan Royals are leading the charts but now they will be coming across a rival who can stop them from winning more fixtures. CSK will be hosting RR at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Wednesday.
Rajasthan Royals are leading the charts with a net run rate of +2.067 and two wins in three fixtures they have been part of.
Chennai Super Kings are currently in the fourth spot with two wins in three games. Their NRR is recorded at +0.356. The top bookmakers in India have amazing odds on their platforms.
Chennai Super Kings started their IPL 2023 campaign with a loss against Gujarat Titans but immediately made a comeback in the tournament with two consecutive wins against LSG and CSK. The batters are in form with Ruturaj Gaikwad scoring runs in every game. The primary concern for the team is its bowling attack. CSK is coming to play at home after scoring a win against MI at Wankhede.
CSK won’t be doing any changes to their squad at the home game.
Predicted Lineup: Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Shivam Dube, Mitchell Santner, Deepak Chahar, RS Hangargekar
Skipper Sanju Samson and his men will be happy to see themselves at the top with the highest net run rate. The opening pair Jos Buttler and Yashaswi Jaiswal are giving the team a good start in the last game. Sanju Samson at number three failed to score in the last game but he has shown good potential in the last two games. Overall, RR is a strong team with good quality in their bowling as well.
Jos Buttler has regained his form at the right time and with every game, he will become more dangerous.
Predicted Lineup: Sanju Samson (c & wk), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Riyan Parag, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, KM Asif, Yuzvendra Chahal
We are in for an absolute thriller between the two teams. CSK are missing out on a strong bowling pair and Moeen Ali is the most dependent bowler in the team. RR, on the other hand, has a good batting depth with a deadly bowling attack. We predict a win for Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday.
