CSK have won the two matches they played. Both times while chasing below par totals under 150 (70 and 147/6 against RCB and DC respectively ) ,In an unlike T20 mmanner.

Rajasthan on the other hand, Has lost in the process of chasing 184/4 by Kings XI Punjab at Jaipur and then lost to Sunrisers in a mission to defend 198/2 ,As the Hyderabad based franchise went on to win the match clinically, With an over left .

Interestingly, Both CSK and RR have fielded unchanged XIs so far, Eventhough a fourth overseas option remains to be tested by CSK. Even the replacement to Ngidi, Hasn't been named yet. 

As CSK have their base covered, It could be either Scott Kuggeleijn (NZ recruit, Replacement to Ngidi ) , Sam Billings or Mitchell Santner depending upon what kind of an option CSK would look to Field. David Willey has opted out of the IPL due to personal reasons

The rise of Sanju Samson would give huge relief to Jos Butler as well as the whole unit of Rajasthan Royals, As they are heavily depending on the English Wicket Keeper batsman to do the bulk of the scoring, While captain Rahane could become the accumulator Jofra Archer and K.Gowtham give hopes for the team with the ball .

It's just a matter of time before RR would look to use other overseas options like the recent Australian sensation Ashton Turner, Kiwi legspinner Ish Sodhi and Windies quick Oshane Thomas .

As far as the track is concerned, There might be some alterations made when compared to the RCB match track as both the captains had expressed dissatisfaction with the nature of the track on which the tournament opener was played.

Will the Sunday night give happy vibes with CSK completing a hat trick of wins, Or will the Royals open their account? Time will tell.
