The 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League has already taken off to a flying start. And it gets even better; as the MS Dhoni-led mighty Chennai Super Kings take the field against the Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday at Sharjah. Here you will find CSK (Chennai Super Kings) vs RR (Rajasthan Royals) best probable playing 11 for the fourth match of IPL 2020 and also best dream 11 team Prediction.
CSK, fresh from their last-heroics against Mumbai in the season-opener, arrive into the match high on confidence. Their bowling unit bears a settled look, although they’d like a bit more initiative from their seamers at the powerplay. The likes of Shane Watson and Murali Vijay would be eager to shed off their rustiness and get back to run-scoring ways.
As for the Rajasthan Royals, they’d be slightly worried about the long, quarantine layoff most of their local players are returning from. But thankfully, most of their marquee overseas stars got to feature in the recent England-Australia series and will be heading into the match with form and match-time behind them.

The likes of Piyush Chawla, Axar Patel, and Ravi Bishnoi have been among the most effective bowlers in the tournament so far, thanks to the natural skid the pitches at the UAE have to offer. Sharjah should be no less of a spin-bowling fortress, despite the relatively shorter boundaries. This will be the venue’s first match of the season, so both teams should look forward to enjoying the early, batting-friendly conditions. The win ratio reads 9:4 in favour of the sides batting first, so defending should be the obvious choice on winning the toss.
Note: The highest total chased on this ground was 139-runs by Afghanistan against Scotland in 2013.
With 0% chances of precipitation, fans don’t have any weather issues to be much concerned about. With relatively low humidity (38%) and high wind speeds (23kmph), swing and turn should be an important aspect. It’ll be a moderately hot evening with the average temperature estimated at 39 degrees Celcius.
