IPL Match of Tomorrow: On May 12, at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) will square off in a match that must win. At 3:30 PM, the afternoon game will begin.

Having won six of the previous twelve games, CSK needs to win the next two in order to advance to the playoffs. Even though on paper they might have a chance with 14 points, they would undoubtedly want to get 16 to increase their chances. Two of their last five games have been victories.

Conversely, RR exhibit greater consistency. They are enjoying their second-place standing in the standings after winning eight of their eleven games. Even though Rajasthan has 16 points from 11 games and is theoretically qualified for the playoffs, they are coming off of two consecutive losses.
