IPL 2021 is reaching the business end, where it’s showdown time for the mid-positioned teams. Best cricket betting sites in India are overwhelmed with traffic as Rajasthan Royals challenges Chennai Super Kings in Match 47 at the Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi, on Oct 2nd. RR lacks consistency this season which is reflected by their lower-mid position on the IPL points table.
Meanwhile, CSK is a win machine in the UAE and is one of the favorites to become the champions this season. RR has to be at its best to break the determined juggernaut of CSK.
RR vs CSK, Match 47-IPL 2021 Preview
On paper, RR seems to have a balanced squad that can compete with all the other teams and beat them. But somehow, they have not played to their true potential and are now scrambling for the 3rd or 4th position. A few of their star overseas players have also not joined them in the second phase.
In their last encounter against CSK at Wankhede, they faltered in their run chase and lost by 45 runs which is a considerable margin by T20 standards. Now to beat CSK, they have to be exceptional with both bat and ball, or else, it is just a one-way ticket to defeat for RR.
CSK has been the most consistent team throughout the IPL 2021, along with DC. MSD is a master when it comes to playing on slower pitches. His batting has come down a bit, but his captaincy is still as sharp as a tack. Both the batting and bowling have fired at the right time, either chasing or defending totals. CSK looks unbeatable even if they rest their key players like Bravo as their bench strength is impressive.
Now, they take on RR in Match 47 at Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi. So be ready with your fantasy teams to play and win on the best cricket betting sites in India.
RR vs CSK, Match 47-Player News
RR had rested Evin Lewis and Chris Morris for their match against Delhi Capitals as they carried some niggles. The constant chopping and changing are never good for teams who are looking to win every game. Sanju Samson has been hot and cold this season but can make an impact in this match as he has returned to form. But as cricket is a team game, individual brilliance won’t always win games.
The bowling has been alright with the likes of Mustafizur Rahman, Kartik Tyagi, and Chetan Sakariya taking wickets at crucial times. However, the batting has been inconsistent, and the unavailability of Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes has been the main reason.
For CSK, Dwayne Bravo was rested against Kolkata Knight Riders but is expected to play an essential role as the tournament reaches its climax. CSK is blessed with plenty of like-to-like replacements, which is a hallmark of a champion side. They have the best batting depth among all the teams, with Deepak Chahar batting at number 10. Hence, they can go on an all-out attack from ball one.
They may rest a few players at some stage to give them a break. Overall, the template remains the same for CSK, and they will stick to it.
