In the fourth match of the IPL 2020, the three time champions Chennai Super Kings are set to clash with the inaugural IPL title winners Rajasthan Royals. With the first three matches taking place in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Sharjah is now all set to host their first match.

Chennai Super Kings opened their account in style by defeating the defending champions Mumbai Indians and ended their five match losing streak against Rohit Sharma and Co. CSK look a well settled team under MS Dhoni as always and will be looking forward to back to back wins which could do a lot of good to their momentum especially after the news of two star players Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh pulling out themselves from the team.

Rajasthan Royals on the other side seem in a distraught position as their key player Ben Stokes is still not with the camp owing to personal reasons. With Steve Smith still doubtful to play after showing delayed concussion symptoms from the blow he suffered during the England and Australia series only adds more pressure to the RR camp.
