For the Royals, captained by Steve Smith, this will be the first match of the season. In view of CSK's impending victory over Mumbai, the Royals team management will demand some extra from their players against the three-time champions who have dominated the league almost every season.

Here we see the key battles that will decide the outcome of the match.

Shane Watson vs. Joffrey Archer

Former Australian all-rounder Watson may stand out in terms of age, but he remains a dangerous operator in the shortest format of the game, as he proved last season.

However, he was about to forget the start of IPL 2020 and will have to go to Archer's bounce, speed and deception.

Sanju Samson vs. Deepak Chahar

Samson's credentials on the order are well known and the Royals for providing a strong start on a regular basis will ban the wicketkeeper-batsman.

To do his job against CSK, he will have to negate four-swing bowling, which in recent years has become an expert in both taking wickets in power play overs and keeping the flow of runs strong.

Steve Smith vs. Ravinder Jadeja

Smith is a bonus in itself for the Royals after being fit for the first match, as the captain has been ruled out’ due to expediency issues after being hit in the head during training in the recently concluded ODI series in England. Is.

However, his weakness against the left-handed Orthodox spin is a clear weakness in the otherwise well-run technique, and in Jadeja, CSK owns a highly efficient left-arm spinner in modern times. How Smith has overlooked Jadeja will most likely determine how successful his stay on the crease will be.

MS Dhoni vs J Dev Anadkit

There was a lot of fact that Dhoni's cricket action was against the MI after the 2019 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand. There was no hope of getting rid of the 'bag' because the veteran did not have to do much work.

In contrast, Anadikat has been busy on the field in recent times and has even captained Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy. And what better way to get the selectors' attention than to bowl well to the best player of the modern era.
