Watch the live stream of Rajasthan vs Chennai in the 2013 IPL.
Where: Sawai Mansingh Stadium
When: 14.30 BST
It’s a hugely important clash at the top of the table in the 2013 IPL as Rajasthan Royals host the Chennai Super Kings, with both sides having the opportunity to book their place in the play-offs.
After a slightly shaky start Chennai have shown why they are the most successful IPL franchise in history by winning eight of their last nine matches.
Australian veteran Mike Hussey has been ever reliable at the crease for CSK, as he battles with Chris Gayle of Royal Challengers Bangalore for the Orange Cap award for most runs in the tournament.
Hussey has been supported well by both captain MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina in the middle, with the two Indians chipping in with impressive knocks.
It is a similar tale at Rajasthan with their skipper Rahul Dravid also contributing significantly with the bat, as well as bringing his experience and tactical nous to the side.
The Royals have been something of a surprise package this campaign as they do not have the spending power of their opponents today, yet their reliance on young players such as impressive 17-year-old Sanju Samson has paid off.
Ajinkya Rahane and Shane Watson have both been solid as an opening partnership whilst James Faulkner has been lethal with the ball.
This is going to be a fierce battle between two very strong sides and whatever the result it would be surprising if both teams weren’t in the top four come the end of the season.
