Chennai Super Kings continue their ongoing IPL (Indian Premier League) 2024 campaign by taking on Rajasthan Royals at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai in the 61st game of the tournament on Sunday, May 12. Defending champions Chennai Super Kings have had a roller coaster season so far, and they will be taking RR after a loss in their previous game. 

Chennai played their last game against Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, where Gujarat put in an excellent performance and outclassed the five-time champions, registering a win by 35 runs. 

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals, after getting off to a flying start to the competition, will be keen to return to winning ways as they have lost last two matches to Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals.

The inaugural champions currently sit in the second place in the standings with eight wins and three losses in 11 matches. With 16 points to their name, Royals will aim to get back to winning ways and clinch the top spot in the standings once more.
