After losing six of their last seven matches, the Rajasthan Royals will aim to get back to winning ways when they collide with the Chennai Super Kings in their tenth fixture of IPL 2020.
The inaugural IPL champions kicked off their campaign with two massive victories over the Chennai Super Kings and the Kings XI Punjab. However, they lost their path after those two wins and they find themselves in a 'do-or-die' situation now.
Their opponents, the Chennai Super Kings, are also in a similar position, with just three wins in nine outings. CSK have not found the perfect team combination yet, and that has hurt them the most in IPL 2020.
RR and CSK contested the first IPL final. Over the last 12 years, these two franchises have been involved in many dramatic clashes. Here's a look at their head-to-head stats before their reverse fixture in IPL 2020.
