Team Journeys in IPL 2023

Chennai Super Kings

It was not a so good start for the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2023 as they lost the season opener against Gujarat Titans. But after that they have made a strong comeback and have won two matches in the trot. 

The MS Dhoni-led side is currently at number five in the points table with four points under their belt and net run rate of +0.356. 

The four time champions will like to keep the streak unbroken in this match. 

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals have played three matches in the tournament so far. They have won two and have lost one of these competitions and are currently at number two in the points table. 

Rajasthan Royals will be looking to win this match and strengthen their position at the top of the table. 

CSK vs RR, Match 17: Pitch Report - MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

The MA Chidambaram Stadium has been the witness to a single match in this IPL between LSG and CSK. That wicket was not at all the traditional slowish and sluggish Chennai pitch. 422 runs were scored in the match in just 40 overs for the loss of 14 wickets. So, it will be interesting to see if  a same kind of flat track is offered or they go back to their traditional spin friendly strip. But seeing the spin depth of Rajasthan Royals, it feels like Chennai will once again present us with a run fest.
