Rajasthan Royals (RR) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Match 68 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday.

The equation is pretty simple for the Royals. The Sanju Samson-led side will be aiming for a win to not only qualify for the playoffs but also seal a spot in the top two. Chennai, on the other hand, have nothing to lose, and the defending champions will only look to end their campaign in the fifteenth season on a high note.
