Like many previous IPL seasons, MS Dhoni seems to have found his winning team this year. The Chennai batters have been consistently scoring runs especially, Ruturaj Gaikwad, who is in the running for the orange cap. While the bowling unit still needs some work as Tushar Deshpande and RS Hangargekar are still inexperienced at the IPL level. 

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have been continuing their dream run from the last season in 2023. The Royals’ batting has been in incredible form with Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal scoring the bulk of runs. Similarly, the bowling with Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal continues to be among the best in the tournament.
