A few days back, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) beat bottom-placed Sunriders Hyderabad and booked their place in the playoffs. On Saturday, they will up against Rajasthan Royals (RR), who are second from the bottom on the table at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
CSK now have the luxury to rest players and make a few changes to their playing XI but they would also love to maintain their winning momentum.
This is the dilemma for MS Dhoni. Maybe players like Imran Tahir, Mitchell Santner, K Gowtham and Robin Uthappa can come in but too many changes can turn out to be a negative factor. The ranking in the top four will also determine whether you’ll end up playing in the eliminator or qualifier.
Rajasthan can’t afford a loss. Their prospects for a top four finish will become a lot tougher if Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capitals in the first match on Saturday.
The Sanju Samson-led side has lost three out of four matches since the second-half of the tournament began in the UAE.
While skipper Samson stepped up and performed with the bat, he didn’t get much help from other batsmen. Chris Morris’ form has also been a big concern for Rajasthan considering they missed key foreign players in Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes.
