RCB vs RR, KKR vs CSK: IPL 2023 team news

Rajasthan went into the weekend at the top of the points table having won four out of their six matches so far. However, they lost their most recent fixture against fellow front-runners Lucknow Super Giants after a middle order collapse. Riyan Parag has endured a series of low scores for Rajasthan, and there are rumblings he could be replaced in the starting XI.

Royal Challengers Bangalore also won their most recent fixture, thanks in a large part to another blistering opening partnership between Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis. Kohli stepped in as captain for that match as Du Plessis was struggling from an injury which meant he was unable to field. There is no update yet on whether he will resume charge of the reins for today’s game. Josh Hazlewood is also not expected to return from injury in time for the match.

Jason Roy featured for KKR for the first time since joining up with the franchise following Shakib Al Hasan’s withdrawal from the tournament. He scored a 39-ball 43 in the side’s loss the Delhi Capitals.

Chennai Super Kings put on a clinic against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday (April 21). They won by seven wickets after restricting them to 138-3. Ben Stokes has not featured for the side since their second game of the competition and is not expected to resume his place in today’s match. Deepak Chahar has also been struggling with injury.

RCB vs RR, KKR v CSK: IPL prediction for today’s matches 32 & 33

Rajasthan might be ahead on wins but RCB are the form side, they might just sneak an advantage over last year’s runners up. CSK’s experience and consistency should make them the victors over KKR.
