The 4th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between the Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. Toss will be held at 7.00 PM IST and Match will start at 7.30 PM IST.
The first game in Sharjah this season will be played between the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings. While this will be the first game of the season for the former, it will be the second for the latter. Even before the start of this game, the Royals have got a few concerns with the unavailability of some players. Thus, it will be quite a task for them to figure out the best possible eleven.
The Chennai Super Kings, however, have played the opening game of the tournament. They are coming into this match with the winning momentum on their side. After being 6/2 in the chase against the Mumbai Indians, they fought back beautifully which should boost their morale. They’d fancy another win in the tournament.
