Pre-match: Chennai Super Kings will have their sights set on the No. 1 position on the IPL-7 points table but getting there won't be easy as in their way will be the dogged Rajasthan Royals.
Chennai and Kings XI Punjab are currently level on points (14) after playing nine games each, with the latter acquiring the top position because of a better net run-rate. But Rajasthan are close on the heels of league leaders with 12 points.
Chennai have registered wins in seven games so far this season while Rajasthan have won six, and it will be Chennai's charisma vs Rajasthan's dogged character.
