CSK vs RR Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips – IPL 2024 61st Match | CSK vs RR Dream11 Prediction Today | Chepauk Pitch Report

60 games and still as many as eight teams are in the playoffs race as we go into the business end of the tournament. GT, last Friday, made the job tough for CSK with a comprehensive win. As a result, CSK are suddenly in some trouble, with defeat today possibly shifting them outside the top four with DC and RCB to meet later.

In the series, RR awaits them in an epic encounter at Chennai. With 16 points already in the account, the Royals’ Camp still has three more games in hand to make them count and try to seal a top two spot. But they are coming with two back-to-back failures while chasing high scores. Nevertheless, they are in exceptional form this season and would look to continue in their merry way.

As the play-offs scenarios work out, all other adversaries in the league would be cheering for RR to win as CSK’s win may spoil their hopes. This promises to be a cracking game indeed.
