Rajasthan and Chennai will lock horns in match number 68 of IPL 2022. While Chennai are already out of the Playoffs contention and will be aiming to keep an eye on some of their players to make a team that could bounce back stronger next year, Rajasthan would also want to finish with a bang and also secure a place in the Playoffs along with Gujarat & Lucknow.
With more at stake for Rajasthan than Chennai, there would be pressure for sure on the Men in Pink. Will they hold their nerves and deliver a "Halla Bol" performance or will it be "Whistle Podu" when Chennai play their last game this season?
