Smith clashes with Dhoni - RR vs CSK IPL 2020 Match 4 Prediction

by  Neel Ashar  •  Last updated on 2020-09-21 21:15:13


It is Steve Smith versus MS Dhoni at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium in Sharjah, the UAE on 22nd September. While Steve Smith is back to lead RR, Dhoni has been the constant for CSK over IPL's history. He is one of the game's greatest cricketing brains. CSK have had the wood over RR in recent years. While RR has struggled to find the right combo and tempo for each season, CSK has been right on money winning the first encounter against arch-rivals MI. Can they secure 2 more points?

Who are the favourites?

CSK are the hot favourites to win this match. Out of the recent 5 times these teams have clashed, CSK has managed to win 4 out of them. They have traditionally had the wood over RR. CSK has a more experienced team and a better pace and spin bowling contingent than their RR counterparts. Dhoni's tactful and skilful abilities will steer CSK's ship to another triumph. 

Scorecard Predictions

1) If RR bats first, they will score 160/7. CSK will chase this down in 19 overs with 4 wickets to spare. 

2) If CSK bats first, they will score 180/6. RR will end up scoring 160/8 and lose by 20 runs. 

Toss Prediction

Expect the captain winning the toss to bowl first, given that the pitch is dry, sluggish and will stay even stevens for a total duration of 40 overs. Teams will know what score to chase and plan their chase accordingly, which is a boon in limited-overs cricket.
