Rajasthan Royals need to win against Chennai Super Kings in order to stay alive for Indian Premier League 2018 play-offs

Chennai needed to win this game in order to take a giant stride towards play-offs and their batsmen took them home in style.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to go with an unchanged eleven.

Chennai Super Kings are all set to face table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in a much-anticipated Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Sunday, May 13.

Opener Watson had already gone for 39 by that point, but captain MS Dhoni's 33 not out and a late flourish from Sam Billings (27) helped Chennai to a solid total. Even as Watson and Raina got out in quick succession, Rayudu didn't stop his audacious strokeplay as MS Dhoni (20*) added his finishing touch to a ideal chase as Chennai reached the target with one over to spare.

Chennai batsman Ambati Rayudu has been in scintillating form this season.

Opting to bat first, the visitors were off to a quick start as openers Ambati Rayudu and Watson accumulated 19 runs from the first two overs.

With 393 runs from 10 innings, Dhoni has rewinded the clock.

Chennai's batting has been quite consistent in terms of performances in this years IPL so far, but as Dhoni pointed out in last games post-match conference, their bowling has been problematic.

The introduction of pacers David Willey and Lungi Ngidi has been a welcome one for CSK as they try to settle into the right combination ahead of the Playoffs.

Rayudu nearly played a second fiddle to Shane Watson in the powerplay overs before taking on Siddarth Kaul in the 7th over where he earned 16 runs and got the momentum going his way.

Death-over bowling will be the biggest concern for the Chennai team management as their opponents on Sunday are well capable of chasing or putting big totals on board, a thing which they have shown in past.

The victory was the Royals' fifth of the season and it left them sixth on ten points, while CSK remained second on 14. Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan have finally come out of their shell and pose a threat to nearly all bowlers.

SRH successfully chased down 188 runs against Delhi Daredevils in its last game.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma couldn't keep the run rate down. He remained unbeaten on 95 runs off just 60 balls, hitting 11 boundaries and a couple of sixes along the way. These sessions seemed to have worked for Dhoni, since he has hit as many as 28 sixes this IPL season in 11innings.

In today's IPL match, it could be another edge of the seat match for fans when the top two teams (CSK vs SRH) of the cash-rich league square-off in a crucial tie.
