Here are the players to watch out for:
Carlos Sanchez: He is available for Colombia after serving a one-game suspension.
Abel Aguilar: He was forced off after half an hour against Poland because of an injury and will not be risked.
Moussa Wague: He, at 19, became the first African teenager to score a World Cup goal in the 2-2 draw with Japan.
James Rodriguez: He has six goals and four assists in seven World Cup appearances.
This match is going to be crucial not only for KKR and RR but also for the other teams that rely on Net Run Rate and the results of the other teams. A loss here will push one of the teams backwards, and the other team will sit pretty on the table. With RCB winning by a big margin yesterday, the tournament is still wide open. Here are my picks for today.
Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 198
The main reason why Rajasthan is winning right now. After being promoted as the opener, the England superstar has scored five consecutive fifties.
Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 185
He powered KKR to a thumping win against Punjab the other night. KKR will need similar knocks from the Windies all-rounder to keep them in the hunt.
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 6
The Australian’s lacklustre form in IPL continued even in the last match. He consistently struggled against the deliveries that came back in.
Last match crickingduels fantasy points 55
The England all-rounder provided a great bowling display against Mumbai Indians that brought Rajasthan back into the game.
A loss here can play the spoilsport for both the teams. After starting well in the tournament, both the teams are struggling to make it to the playoffs.

The inclusion of Stoinis has put an end to the middle-order woes of Punjab. Despite being inconsistent, the Australian is capable of making a huge impact on the result of the match.

When: May 11, Friday at 20:00 IST
Where: Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur

CSK: The team will not look to change much to the winning combination. The revamped bowling combination has click big time.
Probable: Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Dhruv Shorey, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, David Willey, Harbhajan Singh, Lungi Ngidi, Shardul Thakur
RR: Though Rajasthan ended up on the winning side the other night, the team isn’t looking a great shape and to win against a team like CSK, Royals will have to make few changes to their combination.
Probable: Ajinkya Rahane, Jos Buttler, Stuart Binny/Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Mahipal Lomror, K Gowtham, Ish Sodhi, Jofra Archer, Anureet Singh/Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat.
Crickingduels fantasy cricket eleven:
Rajasthan is just a match away from being eliminated from the tournament, whereas, Chennai is one match away from qualifying to the playoffs. In a way, it is an important match for both the teams. Buttler as the opener has given new hopes to Rajasthan. His brutal power hitting mixed with classic cricketing shots are impressive to watch, but other than Buttler, nobody has even provided starts to the team. If Rajasthan needs to win today, they need to perform as a unit.
Chennai, the team that bats deep had troubles with death bowling in the past, but the inclusion of Ngidi and Willey has balanced the side well.
Here are the fantasy picks for today’s match:
Ambati Rayudu: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 73
He is a regular name now in the fantasy cricket. Now, this shows his consistency and the way he has led the team from the front with his scores.
Jos Buttler: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 163
The change in batting spot is doing wonders for Buttler. Four fifties in four matches now, and he has got only better. Can someone from CSK stop him?
Ben Stokes: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 49
The England all-rounder’s lack of form is one of the biggest reasons why Royals are pushed into this position. With a slight outside chance to make it to playoffs, Royals will expect Stokes to perform.
Lungi Ngidi: Last match crickingduels fantasy points: 44
Ngidi wasn’t given many opportunities in this tournament so far. When the opportunity came his way, he grabbed them, and he came on top with his impressive bowling.
