CSK vs RR Match Preview
On Wednesday evening, Chennai Super Kings will face Rajasthan Royals in Match 17 of the 2023 Indian Premier League. This game at the MA Chidambaram Stadium pits two teams with four points (two wins and one loss) against each other. Chennai Super Kings have won their last two games against Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Super Giants, but the opposition in this match could be the toughest they have faced all season. Rajasthan Royals finished second last year and are already regarded as one of the strongest teams in this competition. In this match, we believe they will be too strong for Chennai.

Topmost Picks for CSK vs RR Dream11 Prediction:
Top Picks – Chennai Super Kings
- Mitchell Santner – The New Zealander can often play an understated role in any side but he is always very economical with his bowling and chips in with valuable wickets.
- Ruturaj Gaikwad – The 26-year-old right-handed opener has already hit two half-centuries in the tournament with a highest score of 92.
Top Picks – Rajasthan Royals
- Jos Buttler – In spite of not being at full fitness in his last two innings with the bat, the England white-ball skipper is still averaging a very strong 50.67 from three games in the IPL 2023.
- Yuzvendra Chahal – The spinner won the Purple Cap in the 2022 IPL and his performance in the last game was very similar to last year as he recorded figures of 3-27.

CSK vs RR Probable Winners:
This should be an excellent contest between two teams who have been playing exciting cricket as well as winning more games than they have lost so far. Ajinkya Rahane was in fine form in Chennai Super Kings’ last game and showed that he can more than cover for Ben Stokes in this team. We are expecting a very close game of cricket but overall we think the bowling attack for Rajasthan Royals holds the key. Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal are both in excellent form and we are backing Rajasthan Royals to win. Considering the team combination, Chennai Super Kings is expected to win this match.
