CSK have failed to chase down 216 against Rajasthan Royals and 176 against the Delhi Capitals. They had started the tournament well and comfortably chased down 163 against the defending champions Mumbai Indians in the opening match of the tournament. But Ambati Rayudu, who along with Faf du Plessis, were the heroes in the win over Mumbai Indians, is out with slight niggle, His absence looks to have somewhat unsettled the CSK batting line-up and they have faltered with the bat in successive games.
