Ajinkya Rahane wins the toss and chose to bowl first
Chennai Super Kings are going to clash with Rajasthan after a gap of 4 days. Chennai Super Kings had their last encounter with Kings XI Punjab that it lost despite a bang on-show by CSK Skipper MS Dhoni. Notably, Dhoni was awarded the man of the match award despite CSK losing the match. Chris Gayle, like in the match played yesterday, had blasted CSK in their last match that led to Punjab setting challenging and resulting in a difficult total for the mighty CSK.
Both the teams have not yet put up their best performances but have managed to come up with individual blitz performers. The performances of Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Sanju Samson verify this fact. Chennai Super Kings have managed to perform decently well even without Suresh Raina in their squad.
