After a thriller at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will lock horns for the second in Jaipur. The Royals fended away a roaring MS Dhoni to win that match. But since then both teams have had some ups and downs, as RR is on a two-game losing streak. Whereas the Super Kings have won three straight games since the loss and are sitting at the top of the table.
Despite having one of the most complete sides, the Rajasthan Royals have faltered in their last two performances, suffering two defeats. It has seemed like the squad has stagnation with no player rising up to carry the team over the finish line. The batting has performed fairly well but the bowling department, especially the pace battery, still has room for improvement.
On the other hand, the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings continues its dominant season with flamboyance and flair. Over the 2023 season, CSK have performed as a team with multiple members stepping to contribute. Their batting has been one of the best in the tournament, thanks to Ajinkya Rahane’s free-form stroke play. While the bowling attack can still get better and further strengthen Chennai’s chances moving forward.
