Rajasthan Royals will be taking on Chennai Super Kings in the fourth match of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, in Sharjah, on September 22, Tuesday.
Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings will renew their rivalry again tomorrow and it promises to be a cliffhanger. This will be Rajasthan Royals' first match of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League and Steve Smith and co. will be looking for nothing but a winning start to their IPL 2020 campaign. But it is almost the clash of the titans as the Royals will be up against the three-time champions Chennai Super Kings, who have already made a fantastic start to their campaign by beating the defending champions Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets in the opening game of the IPL. MS Dhoni and co. hold a brilliant record against the Royals in the IPL and the statistics favour the Super Kings heavily. However, it is a new season and a new beginning, we will have to be patient and see how this forthcoming fixture pans out. In the meantime, take a closer look at three of the best player markets I have gathered for you to bet on from this match. Shall we get going?
It was not really an easy task to pick three batsmen from these two sides for this article, who would make you money for sure. But I have to take the players who are going to make genuine appearances in tomorrow's game, which is the primary objective and then score runs. Now, Robin Uthappa is one of those players who will be crucial in this Rajasthan Royals setup and will also score quite a lot of runs. Uthappa comes in with a bag full of experience as he has played 177 matches in the IPL and he is the 9th highest run scorer in the history of the competition with 4411 runs at an average of 28.83 including 24 fifties. This will be his first stint with the Royals but in the last season of Kolkata Knight Riders, Uthappa played 12 matches and scored 282 runs at an average of 31.33. Uthappa has racked up 581 runs in 23 matches against Chennai Super Kings at an average of 30.58. In T20 cricket, Robin has 6504 runs against his name at an average of 28.91 including 37 half centuries. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for Robin Uthappa to score at least 20 runs tomorrow against Chennai Super Kings.
MS Dhoni is the man to look forward to tomorrow as we did not get to see a lot of him with the bat in the first game as he came out to bat way down the order. Now, since he holds a very good record against Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League therefore it was imperative for me to opt for the man who has done wonders for his side. MS Dhoni is the 8th highest run scorer in the history of the IPL with 4432 runs against his name at an average of 42.20 including 23 half centuries. In the previous season of the Indian Premier League, Dhoni was quite sensational with the bat as he scored 416 runs at a jaw-dropping average of 83.20. MS Dhoni has 423 runs at an average of 38.25 in 22 matches against Rajasthan Royals. In the last couple of matches against Rajasthan Royals, MS Dhoni has scores of 75 and 58 and that shows how much he loves to bat against the Royals. 20 runs should be a piece of cake for MS Dhoni and Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for the same and winning should be easy tomorrow.
The English wicket-keeper batsman has been quite brilliant with the bat ever since he has switched sides from Mumbai Indians to Rajasthan Royals. Buttler was in very good form in white-ball cricket formats against Australia recently and finished the series with quite a lot of runs. Buttler has played 21 matches for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL and has notched up 859 runs at an average of 47.72. In the last couple of seasons, Buttler has played four matches against Chennai Super Kings and he has scored 146 runs at an average of 48.67. He comes in with an experience of 232 T20 games and 5766 runs at an average of 30.51 including 39 half centuries. In his entire IPL career, Jos Buttler has played 45 matches and has racked up 1386 runs at an average of 35.54. In the previous season of the IPL, the Englishman scored 548 runs at an average of 54.80 so it is quite obvious that Buttler is not going back to the pavilion empty handed tomorrow. William Hill is offering odds of 1.83 for Buttler to score at least 26 runs and I believe he will score a lot more than that.
Robin Uthappa to score more than 19.5 runs - @ 1.87 (Dafabet)
Expect at least 20 runs from the bat of MS Dhoni - @ 1.87 (Dafabet)
Jos Buttler to score over 25.5 runs - @ 1.83 (William Hill)
