Chennai vs Rajasthan in Indian T20 League

A Chennai vs Rajasthan match carries a lot of history. These were the two teams that fought for the top honours in the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League. Rajasthan trumped Chennai in a historic clash back then. However, the fortunes of the 2 teams have gone in opposite directions over 12 years that followed.

Chennai went on to become the most consistent team in the league, reaching the playoffs in every single season they have been a part of. Out of these 10 playoff places, the team reached the final 8 times, which yielded 3 trophies to make them the second most successful team in the history of the competition. The franchise has followed a set formula throughout their Indian T20 Premier League journey, that of banking on experienced heads to take them home and with MS Dhoni working his magic as one of the most revered leaders in world cricket, the team has achieved great things despite many doubters popping up ahead of every season.

Rajasthan, on the other hand, have seen their fortunes dip after a successful first season, reaching the playoffs just 3 times in the next 11 editions, and failing to make it to the final even once. The team’s strategy of investing in young Indian players, a lot of them fairly new and unheard of, with a sprinkling of experienced foreign heads, has not worked as well as the management had hoped. Rajasthan.s record in this contest has been quite underwhelming, winning only 8 games out of the 22 played. In the previous season too, the Rajasthan team lost both the games. With Steven Smith now at the helm, the royals will be hoping for an upturn in their fortunes.
