Tomorrow’s IPL Match: CSK vs RR – who’ll win Chennai vs Rajasthan clash on May 12? Fantasy team, pitch report and more

Tomorrow’s IPL Match: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will play Rajasthan Royals (RR) in a must-win game on May 12 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The afternoon match will start at 3:30 PM.

CSK, having won 6 out of 12 matches, must win the next 2 games to qualify for the playoffs. While having 14 points may give them an outside chance on paper, they surely want to get 16 and cement their chances. They have won 2 out of their last 5 matches.

RR, on the contrary, are more consistent. They have won 8 of their 11 matches and are enjoying the 2nd position on the points table. Rajasthan, however, are coming from 2 back-to-back losses even though they are technically in for the playoffs with 16 points already from 11 games.
