Chennai Super Kings Squad: MS Dhoni(c), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf du Plessis, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Deepak Chahar, KM Asif, Kanishk Seth, Lungi Ngidi, Dhruv Shorey, Murali Vijay, Sam Billings, Mark Wood, Kshitiz Sharma, Monu Kumar, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Imran Tahir, Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, N Jagadeesan
Rajasthan Royals Squad: Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Rahul Tripathi, D Arcy Short, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Ankit Sharma, Anureet Singh, Zahir Khan, Shreyas Gopal, Prashant Chopra, Sudhesan Midhun, Ben Laughlin, Mahipal Lomror, Aryaman Birla, Jatin Saxena, Dushmantha Chameera, Ajinkya Rahane(c), Heinrich Klaasen
No further injuries in the Chennai Super Kings’ camp have been reported. Murali Vijay is likely to open the batting once again in the absence of Suresh Raina as the team looks set to go in with an unchanged line-up.
Ambati Rayudu and captain MS Dhoni are the leading run-scorers for the Chennai Super Kings in IPL. Both did a good job with the bat last time against KXIP and the team will want them to play the big knocks against the Royals as well. Middle order batting depends on Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja who have the reputation of providing a good finish to the innings. Since Bravo has not been up to the mark with the ball, CSK will look to Shane Watson and Imran Tahir to take wickets and keep the opposition’s scoring rate down. Watson has been the pick of the lot with five wickets in three matches.
Chennai Super Kings are positioned fourth in the IPL 2018 league standings after two wins and a loss from three matches. They beat Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders respectively in their first two games before going down to the Kings XI Punjab in a tight battle. They have been very impressive with the bat so far but will need to work on their bowling a bit more.
Rajasthan Royals don’t seem to have any injury worries ahead of their clash with the Chennai Super Kings. They are expected to field the same playing eleven from the last game.
Sanju Samson has been the man in form with the bat for the Rajasthan Royals. The top-order batsman is currently second on the season’s runs charts with 185 runs at a healthy strike rate of 158.11. Ajinkya Rahane, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are yet to play a big knock and the team will be hoping that at least one of them could get going in this match. Jaydev Unadkat, Ben Laughlin and Stokes are the Royals’ best bets when it comes to bowling. Unadkat has not made much impact so far but he is expected to make a strong contribution with the ball here against the Super Kings.
Rajasthan Royals are positioned one place below the Chennai Super Kings on the fifth spot in the IPL 2018 standings with two wins and as many defeats from four league matches. After beating the Delhi Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore in two consecutive games, the Royals faced a home defeat against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous match.
Chennai Super Kings :
Shane Watson, Murali Vijay, Ambati Rayudu, Sam Billings, MS Dhoni (c/wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Shardul Thakur

Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Prediction
Chennai Super Kings have lost their home advantage as all of their remaining home matches have been moved to Pune. While the Rajasthan Royals would be relieved to know that they won’t have to face the CSK at their fortress MA Chidambaram Stadium, they will be well aware of the fact that they don’t have a good record against them in the IPL. The Super Kings have beaten the Royals three times in their previous four meetings and this will definitely give them the upper hand going into this game. Even without Suresh Raina in the mix, CSK look stronger on paper and so we predict them to emerge victorious come Friday night.
