In the 12th game of the Vivo IPL 2021, the Chennai Super Kings take on the Rajasthan Royals at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on 19th April. Both teams come into the game with a win after losing their respective first games. For each of the sides, the start of the season was not particularly advantageous as the Delhi Capitals beat the Super Kings, then the latter gave the Punjab Kings a similar treatment.
Date: 19th April 2021 (Monday)
Pitch and conditions
The Wankhede track is a soundtrack for contrasting results so far. The first two games ended in high-scoring encounters before two low-scoring ones ended with plenty of early wickets for both sides.
Contrary to the famous reputation that the venue is known for being a batting paradise, things might continue to be unpredictable on a similar sticky wicket.
Chennai Super Kings Probable XI:
Ruturaj Gaikwad/Robin Uthappa, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar
Rajasthan Royals Probable XI:
Manan Vohra/Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman
A very low probability of rain is expected in Mumbai, with an average temperature of around 31 degrees celsius.

IPL 2021: CSK vs. RR Match Prediction
Despite looking the better side on paper, the RR bowlers appear confident going into this game. However, though all of the rest of the team’s performances are good, they must improve on the starts with the bat. A slow start could deny them a win.
Prediction: Rajasthan Royals to win.
