Royals take on CSK in battle of supremacy

Table-toppers Rajasthan Royals will look to extend their four-match winning streak when they take on an unbeaten Chennai Super Kings in their fifth match of IPL-8 on Sunday.

Sans injured captain Shane Watson, RR have been ably led by Steven Smith in the four matches gone by and have managed a clear eight points. Two-time champions CSK are not far behind as the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side has also enjoyed a clean run in its three matches. RR seem to have ticked all the boxes in all the departments with their top-order batsmen not only coming good in all the matches but also the bowling rising to the challenge. 

CSK, on the other hand, have also had a smooth run so far after their opening one-run win against DD. Of the 13 matches played between the two teams, CSK have managed to win eight while RR have won five.
