Winners of IPL 3 and IPL 4 are unable to show their magic in IPL 5 until now, out of five matches they lost three of them; hence they are sixth team on the points table.

Ajinkya rahane will be player to watch, he is the leading run scorer of IPL 5. This boy from Mumbai has scored more than three hundred runs in just six matches with one ton and inning of ninety eight runs. He can play every shot in book that too with such ease. Also Owais Shah is second run getter in IPL 5, he have scored more than two hundred fifties in just six matches. Rajasthan Royals are the most consistent team of IPL 5, their win percentage is more than sixty percent, and therefore they are on the top of the points table. Their batting has depth and bowling has variations. Moreover, they are on the winning roll and it would be difficult to topple Rajasthan Royals. Their bowling department looks a little vulnerable against good batting. Apart from Botha and Hogg, they do not have any experienced bowlers in their team.
Defending champions Chennai Super Kings will face two time finalist Rajasthan Royals at their home ground. Every single team has faced difficulties to conquer CSK's castle in Chepauk. CSK is the only team to reach semi finals in all seasons of the IPL and also only team to win the IPL twice. There are many reasons behind their tremendous success; the prime is their captain cool MS Dhoni. When it comes to captaincy, he is as cool as ice but while batting he is one of the most convincing hard hitter of the ball and one of the best finisher of our time. With more than 1800 runs under his belt, Suresh Raina is the leading run scorer in all seasons of IPL. He is partnership breaker with bowl and excellent fielder. Their opening slot and pace department is definitely a concern with Vijay not firing.

Both the teams have plenty of match winners and I think it would be a batsmen's match. Therefore, I think Ajinkya Rahane, with one century to his name already is going to enjoy this batting wicket and score runs of Rajasthan Royals. He's Orange cap holder with more than three hundred runs under his belt and I think he'll be Man of the match in this game.
