Rajasthan Royals (RR) face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the second of the two games in a double-header Saturday. CSK have already qualified for the playoffs while the Royals are still in the hunt, but need to win all their remaining games. The Royals are on 8 points and seventh on the points table fighting to stay alive.
Chennai Super Kings have already qualified for the playoffs after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, that will take nothing away from the fact that the side will want to win all their remaining matches. MS Dhoni spoke about correcting their mistakes and doing the process right. They have won all their games in the UAG leg and would want to finish the league stage topping the points table.

The Royals are finding it hard to find inspiration in their camp at the moment. The Royals like the Punjab Kings have won matches, they could have won. However, they were totally outplayed in their last two games against SRH and RCB. Young skipper Sanju Samson has a lot on his shoulders being the top-scorer of his side so far in the tournament.
