Chennai Super Kings (CSK) play against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai in Match 47 of the Pepsi IPL 2015. Chennai Super Kings are second on the points table with 14 points from 11 games while Rajasthan Royals are third on the points table with 14 points from 12 games. Except for Kolkata Knight Riders, no other team is definitely going through to the Playoffs so every game is crucial from here on.
Chennai boast of two excellent medium pace bowlers in their ranks who have been simply brilliant in this season. Purple Cap holder Ashish Nehra and the No. 2 in the list of most wicket-taking bowlers, Dwayne Bravo ensure that Chennai don’t concede too many runs. Chennai must be relieved that their off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin made a resounding comeback following a finger injury. He scalped the two crucial wickets of Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel while opening the bowling.
To match Chennai’s bowlers might, Rajasthan do have the pedigree with opener Ajinkya Rahane being a captain’s delight. The 26-year-old right-handed batsman from Mumbai has been the key man from the start of the season and dons the orange cap for the most runs (438) in the competition so far. He has been well supported by his skipper and opening partner Shane Watson, followed by Australian Steven Smith and Indian youngsters Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and Deepak Hooda. They will look to muster as many runs as they can so that their bowlers can defend. (With inputs from Agencies)
