The 4th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Rajasthan and Chennai at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. We have got the best Rajasthan vs Chennai team prediction for today’s match.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
After having played and won the opening game of this season of the Indian T20 League, Chennai will be facing off against the team from Rajasthan, who will be playing their first match this season. The runners up from last year’s edition, Chennai have made sure that they carried forward their form into this season. And, they beat all the odds and went on to win their match against Mumbai, starting off their campaign on a winning note. The team would look to win this match and continue their winning run.
The last season of the T20 League was not good at all for the Rajasthan based franchise. In their quota of 14 matches, they managed to win only 5 matches and were placed at the second last position in the points table. So, this year, the team which has the might of Steve Smith and Jofra Archer playing for them will be looking to make it to the top 4 and their opening game would play an important part in setting the tone for the rest of their campaign.
