Team news & updates.
Chennai Super Kings
Chennai seems to a well balanced winning team in every angle possible. Last game in Chennai they have restricted they opponents to just 70 runs in total. Toss will play a crucial part in the game where toss winning team will be going to bowl first. All eyes will be on Thahir, R Jadeja & Harbajan Singh, what they can do with the ball. Batting department is pretty confident other than position of Ambati Rayudu, he failed to perform twice last matches.
Last match they performed really well batting wise to put up a 190+ score to chase. Like every time their bowlers failed to shine and opposition made it look like easy to chase a 199 score. Sanju Samson hit a 102* from 55 balls, that was a cracker of innings with all classic shots reminding of golden years of Indian cricket. Bowlers should step up to occasion and we expect some changes in bowling line up as well.

Our pick is Chennai Super Kings, because batting power of CSK is too much to handle for Rajasthan Royals. Also expecting a smaller total & good score for the first team batting is 130-150 because we saw Chepauk’s pitch last match. Spinners will be having a day of their own if there was nothing changed from last time against RCB in IPL opener.
