CSK vs RR Dream11 Prediction
Top Fantasy Picks:
- Jos Buttler (RR): MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai produced a belter of a surface during the CSK vs LSG game. The pitch assisted the batters and if a similar surface is prepared then who better than Jos Buttler to make the most of it? Buttler is in great form of late. In 3 innings, he has scored 152 runs at an excellent strike rate of 180.95.
- Ajinkya Rahane (CSK): The local Mumbai boy was at his best as he registered a 19-ball half-century against MI. He looked solid with his stroke play. It was pure class from Rahane. His debut innings for CSK show that he can adapt to the situation and guide the team.
- Ruturaj Gaikwad (CSK): CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad has taken his IPL form to a whole different level. He was the top run-getter for CSK in the IPL 2022 and has braced himself nicely in the ongoing season as well. In the three games held so far, Gaikwad has scored 189 runs at an impressive average of 94.50.
- Yuzvendra Chahal (RR): Seasoned leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal will be crucial for Rajasthan Royals’ plans against CSK. Chennai’s Chepauk has generally supported the spinners in the second innings. Chahal is placed third in the list of highest wicket-takers with eight scalps under his belt in three innings.
