Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will square off in their final IPL 2022 group game on Sunday. As a matter of fact, this will be the final match of the season for CSK since they are currently ranked second from the bottom of the IPL standings.
Only pride for CSK at this point, but RR has a lot more to gain. With a win in this game, it can clinch a top-2 finish and give themselves a second chance to reach the IPL Final.
An advantage like that can be priceless.
It’s hard to argue with the IPL betting sites’ assessment that RR is the favourite to win this match. Let’s take a look at some other bets that may be available.
RR vs CSK IPL 2022 match prediction and cricket betting tips. The match will be held on May 20th, 2022, at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
RR vs CSK Team Previews
SHimron Hetmyer’s return to the Rajasthan Royals’ squad is a huge boost for the team, and he could replace Jimmy Neesham in the batting order right away.
In IPL 2022, Hetmyer has been the best death overs batsman, scoring 230 runs at a strike rate of 201 in his last five overs.
If he joins the team, he’ll only enhance an already impressive lineup. However, Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Devdutt Padikkal, along with Sanju Samson, are having their best IPL batting seasons ever.
RR has hit the most sixes of any team so far, with a total of 112, and Sanju Samson’s clever T20 strategies deserve mention as well.
With Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, R Ashwin, and Prasidha Krishna, the bowling attack appears to be well-balanced. Obed McCoy, a great T20 bowler who thrives in slow conditions, could be the fifth option.

Chennai Super Kings
CSK has had a disastrous season, winning just four of their thirteen games. CSK is having its worst IPL season ever this year. In such seasons, it can be difficult to find things that go right, and this is the case with CSK as well.
However, the team’s efforts to change and improve have been unsuccessful.
Because of the team’s upcoming roster changes, betting on CSK is a bit of a gamble from a betting perspective (in all likelihood). In the previous match, N Jagadeesan, Prashant Solanki, and Matheesha Pathirana all appeared, and they are all expected to play again.
Regardless of how good these players are, they’re still learning the ropes at the professional level. Young players at CSK will have a difficult time dealing with one of the strongest teams in the IPL in 2022.
CSK has been hampered by the inconsistency of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, and Meen Ali.
If CSK loses a few early wickets and the bowling is weak, we are concerned about the batting effort. Despite the fact that every team is full of international superstars, CSK’s team currently does not measure up to RR’s at this time.

RR vs CSK Toss Prediction
When the coin toss is thrown, the team that chooses to bat first will want to do so. In IPL 2022, teams that batted first at Brabourne Stadium won 53 percent of the time. The team batting first has won all three previous matches at this venue, so that should be taken into consideration.
To get a better understanding of how we come up with our toss predictions, check out our guide.
Pitch and Conditions
The Brabourne Stadium has proven to be the best batting venue in IPL 2022 so far. 179.1 is the average first-inning score, and 197.8 is the winning total!
Matches held at this location have produced an average of 34 fours and 14 sixes. The average powerplay rating is 52.22.
Every venue has had a greater emphasis on spin, and we expect the Brabourne to be no exception. However, this is still a place where you can expect a high-scoring match.
