Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings top picks
RR: Jos Buttler (627 runs from 13 matches) is the top scorer of IPL 2022 but has been tamed in the last few matches. Same with Yuzvendra Chahal - joint purple cap holder with 24 wickets in 13 matches. Sanju Samson has been consistent but hasn’t gone on to score big. R Ashwin and Shimron Hetmyer have stepped up for RR in the last few matches.
CSK: Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad at the top have been instrumental for CSK in their wins. However, Chennai Super Kings will need contributions from captain MS Dhoni and his bowlers if they are to end their campaign on a winning note.
Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings prediction
Odds favour the inaugural champions Rajasthan Royals as they also look strong on paper and in their current form. Chennai Super Kings will need their bowlers to stand up to counter the firepower of Rajasthan Royals.
