Rajasthan Royals (RR) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the fourth match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, on Tuesday (September 22). The MS Dhoni-led side is coming after trumping the arch-rivals and defending champions Mumbai Indians, whereas, for Steve Smith & Co., this will be the tournament opener.
Pitch and Weather report
The pitch on offer at the Sharjah stadium is generally good for batting. But bowlers, especially spinners, will also have their say. Therefore, the batsmen should be careful before going for big strokes. The numbers suggest that the team batting second will get an advantage. The conditions will be warm with the temperature around 34 degrees Celsius. Unlike Abu Dhabi and Dubai, dew may not play a massive role in Sharjah.
