Mumbai, April 19: The Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will face each other in a potentially enthralling IPL 2021 match at the Wankhede Stadium here on Monday (April 19). The CSK has a head to head to advantage over RR in the IPL but past records seldom matters.
Rajasthan is an explosive outfit with players such as Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, David Miller who turn the match on its head in the blink of an eye.
The Super Kings will be eager to stop RR on their tracks using experience which they have in abundance. Right from skipper MS Dhoni to bowlers Shardul Thakur, they are players who have faced and tamed occasions of all hues and shapes.
