Chennai Super Kings will look to get a leg-up over Rajasthan Royals in the race for the Indian Premier League playoffs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Monday.
In a tactical ploy, CSK captain MS Dhoni sent the young Sam Curran to open the innings against SRH. It was a success.
Curran provided the necessary momentum at the top and veterans Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni himself capitalised on that to put up a competitive score.
CSK’s bowlers Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and Dwayne Bravo have been in top form through the season and they ensured that the team got back to winning ways.
MS Dhoni will look to continue that momentum on Monday. Watch CSK vs RR on live streaming.
RR, on the other hand, have had an inconsistent season with skipper Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson seemingly having lost their touch recently.
However, they have welcomed back Ben Stokes into the playing XI and along with Jofra Archer, he could be key for RR’s chances on Monday.
