Matheesha Pathirana and Deepak Chahar remain sidelined due to hamstring injuries, depriving CSK of their bowling power. Furthermore, Mustafizur Rahman’s absence due to national team duties further affects the balance of the team. CSK’s tactics revolve around exploiting the weaknesses of the opposition lineup.

Mitchell Santner’s effectiveness against Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson is a key matchup to watch. Santner’s ability to trouble Samson with his left-arm spin could be pivotal in CSK’s strategy.

Presentation Report: Eden Gardens, Kolkata

Historically, Chepauk’s pitch tends to favor the team’s second hitter, and the dew makes it difficult for pacers to handle the ball. In this daytime game, where some cloud cover is expected, winning the toss would probably prompt the captain to opt to bowl first.

While the ball may initially come to the bat well, scoring runs can become challenging as it loses toughness. Anticipate pacers to employ slower deliveries in the later stages of the innings.
