Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals have started off their 2021 Indian Premier League campaign in a similar manner. They both lost their first game, but showed great courage and spirit to get the job done in their second game. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men were simply blown away by Delhi Capitals in their first match.

But in their second game, it was their turn to blow the opposition away, as they secured a convincing win against Punjab Kings. Rajasthan’s matches have been a lot more closely fought, as they lost their first game against Punjab in the last ball, but won their next game against Delhi in the last over. Having opened their account, the challenge now will be to remain on the right track.

Top Picks for CSK vs RR Dream11 Match:

Top Picks ­– Batsmen

After a poor start to his campaign, Faf du Plessis played a match-winning knock of 36 runs in the last game. While he took 33 deliveries, the need of the hour was for someone to play the role of a sheet anchor, which the veteran South African did brilliantly.

Another South African batsman who batted well in his last game is David Miller. He scored 62 runs from only 43 deliveries. Before coming into the IPL, Miller had scored 2 half-centuries in as many ODI games against Pakistan.

Top Picks ­– All-Rounders

Moeen Ali is turning out to be a fantastic acquisition for Chennai Super Kings. After a handy 36 in the first match, he scored 46 runs and took one wicket in the last game.

Chris Morris justified why Rajasthan paid a hefty price for him by playing a sublime knock of 36 from 18 deliveries in the last game. He also picked up a wicket by conceding only 27 runs.

Top Picks ­– Bowlers

Deepak Chahar bowled one of the best spells of this edition’s IPL in the last game against Punjab. He picked up 4 wickets by conceding only 13 runs.

Jaydev Unadkat also silenced his critics with his scintillating spell against Bangalore. He picked up 3 wickets by conceding only 15 runs. That is not all he did, as his knock of 11 runs from 7 deliveries was invaluable.

Top Picks ­– Wicketkeepers

Sanju Samson has struggled with consistency throughout his career, but he is one of the most lethal batsmen in IPL when he gets going. In the first game, he scored 119 runs from only 63 deliveries.

Jos Buttler is another player who is unstoppable when he gets going. The problem for RR is that he hasn’t got going so far in this season, but before coming into IPL, he scored 140+ runs in his last 3 T20 games.

CSK vs RR Risky Captaincy Picks:

Sam Curran was brilliant with the ball in the last game, picking up a wicket by conceding only 12 runs. In the first match, he was impressive with the bat, scoring 34 runs from only 12 deliveries. His all-round skills makes him a differential captaincy pick.
