It is time for that battle between two teams who haven’t shared the greatest history in the past. We all know that both Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were suspended for wrongdoing from 2016 to 2017. Where One team made the greatest comeback ever in 2018 by winning the title whereas another team is still trying to find its ground with respect to qualifying for the playoffs.
Rajasthan Royals being led by Ajinkya Rahane in the previous two editions have performed poorly as they’ve failed to qualify for the playoffs on both occasions. Now this year they have Steve Smith as their full-time skipper who will look to bring the best out of his side this season. In their first match of the season, they take on the Thala’s side Chennai Super Kings at the iconic Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
With the match all set to involve some marquee players, let’s take a close look at the players we all should have eyes on in the game.
Let’s take a look at the 5 players to watch out for in the RR vs CSK game:
Well after the first game vs Mumbai Indians, how could anyone miss out talking about Ambati Rayudu. The batsmen came in at 4 during a crucial time and ended up scoring a match-winning knock to help CSK sail through for a win. As a player, life has been hard on Rayudu since last 15-20 months. After being dropped from the 2019 World Cup squad he went on to retire from the game.
But now, here he is to prove a point that he’s here to stay and someone like him can never be counted out. He has played the role of a finisher for the CSK franchise in the last past and is now batting in the middle order this season.
With the match to be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Rayudu will enjoy the freedom of those short boundaries.
