Rajasthan Royals will face off against Chennai Super Kings on 20th May, Friday at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai, in the 68th match of IPL 2022.
Sanju Samson’s side sits 3rd in the table and needs a win to leapfrog Lucknow Super Giants in the 2nd spot as they boast a superior run-rate to LSG’s.
Although they have almost sealed their place for the playoffs, finishing in 2nd spot will give them two bites at the cherry in the playoffs.
The Royals are heading into the game on the back of a 24-run win against the impressive LSG. Sanju Samson will refrain from making many changes to the winning combinations
Howeveer, the availability of Shimron Hetmyer means that the West Indian will slot back into the team, replacing Jimmy Neesham.
