Chennai Super Kings will hope rebound from the huge loss they suffered against Gujarat Titans when they take on Rajasthan Royals on Sunday. Ravindra Jadeja who made his foray into the IPL with the Rajasthan side in 2008 will have a huge role to play.

The 35-year-old has played 12 games this season and scored 220 runs with the bat with one half-century. Ravindra Jadeja is having a batting average of 44 and a strike rate of 138 during the current season.

Key battles for Ravindra Jadeja against RR

Ravichandran Ashwin – Veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be relishing his chance to bowl at Ravindra Jadeja. The two players are great friends and know each other’s strengths. Jadeja who bats in the middle-order will have to contend with Ashwin on a dry Chennai wicket in front of his own home fans with the bat in hand.

Sanju Samson – With the ball Ravindra Jadeja has always made it a habit of targeting the best batters from the opposition. Sanju Samson in current form is one of the best in the business and a battle between these two stars will be one to watch out for.
