Rajasthan Royals would be gunning for a top-two spot when they face Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2022 on May 20, Friday. Sanju Samson's side have had a memorable campaign this season and with 16 points in their kitty, they have more or less ensured a top-four spot for themselves. However, it is the second spot that they would aim to achieve should they beat CSK in this game. The defending champions, on the other hand, have had a forgettable campaign as they managed just four wins in 13 matches so far. But they have shown signs of being their former selves in the past few games and would solely play for pride, to finish the competition on a high. IPL 2022 Points Table Updated With NRR
Rajasthan's talisman Jos Buttler, whose form has dipped terribly after a solid start, would be key to his team's chances. Their middle-lower would definitely be boosted with the return of Shimron Hetmyer, who can clear the field in the death overs, with ease. CSK on the other hand, will look forward to being more disciplined with the bat in hand. In their last game against Gujarat, they did not hit a single boundary in the last five overs of their innings, something truly unheard of in T20 cricket. They are most likely to bring back the experienced duo of Robin Uthappa and Ambati Rayudu in the playing XI.
