The 17th game of IPL 2023 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals at the former’s home ground in Chennai. Although both Chennai and Rajasthan have won two of their three respective games, Rajasthan are at the second spot in the points table while Chennai are fifth with a poorer net run rate.
CSK come into this game on the back of a memorable win over arch rivals Mumbai Indians after chasing down the target of 158 runs in 18.1 overs. Ravindra Jadeja picked up three wickets for 20 runs, while Ajinkya Rahane, who made his CSK debut, scored 61 runs off just 27 balls. CSK have dominated the Royals in the head-to-head contests with 15 wins in 27 games, and will be looking for another win in their next meeting.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, defeated Delhi Capitals in their last game in Guwahati. Both Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler scored a half-century each to help Rajasthan post a total of 199 in the first innings. Later in the game, Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal picked up three wickets each to help Rajasthan win the match by 57 runs. Rajasthan’s batting has been top notch in all their three games so far, which has been their trump card this season.
