Indian Premier League 2020: Rajasthan Royals vs. Chennai Super Kings, Match No. 37

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Chennai Super Kings lost their last game against Delhi Capitals due to the non-availability of Dwayne Bravo for the last over. They will be gutted with their loss and will look add more spice to their spin department especially. Rajasthan Royals too made a mistake of not giving the 19th over to in-form Jofra Archer. Both teams lost from a position of strength and will look to redeem themselves and stay ahead in the competition with a win here. We expect Chennai Super Kings to win this match. 

Score Prediction: Abu Dhabi has been a good ground for the bowlers as it has bigger boundaries.  Both spinners and pacers will look use their variations to great effect here. We expect the scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match. 

Toss Prediction: Chasing teams have won the last 4 matches in a row and teams will look to chase down the totals in the coming matches. .
