IPL 2014: Bowlers will hold the key when CSK play RR
Two teams, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals hold an identical record in the ongoing edition of the IPL with two points from two matches played so far. CSK, led by MS Dhoni and Rajasthan led by Shane Watson will go head to head later tonight at Dubai International cricket stadium. CSK and RR are two IPL teams, which have been successful in the previous editions.

Both these teams have a strong batting line up, capable of winning the match on their own. Chennai comprises of strong hitters like MS Dhoni, McCullum, Raina, du Plessis just to name a few. On the other hand, Rajasthan has a good mix of batsmen in their ranks with Watson, Binny and Smith playing the aggressors role, while batsmen such as Rahane and Samson playing the steady role and bat as per the requirements of the game.

With such batsmen at their disposal, it is the bowlers, which might hold the key during the game. Jaipur does not draw a strong bowling line up where Bhatia, Faulkner, Richardson and Kulkarni are the main bowlers. These bowlers may not instill much fear amongst the CSK batsmen.

CSK, on the other hand have a good mix of spin and pace to threaten the Rajasthan bowlers. In Nehra and Sharma, they have a decent pace attack, backed by the spin duo of Jadeja and Ashwin. It is the bowlers, who bowl tight that could help their respective team win the game.

Apart from CSK looking a strong team on paper, many consider CSK to hold an edge over their rivals, for the core team of the CSK still remains to be the same ever since the first edition of the IPL. While the same cannot be said for Royals, who has witnessed some changes in their squad from the first edition, though Rahane, Binny, Watson seems to have been a loyal son of the royals.
