TOSS: Rajasthan won the toss and elected to bat first.

On a high after back-to-back triumphs, two-time champions Chennai Super Kings would look to maintain their winning streak when they take on Rajasthan Royals in Match 30 of IPL 2013 today.

The home team has clicked collectively in its wins with all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja proving to be a crucial cog in its scheme of things.

Another all-rounder Dwayne Bravo and new recruits Chris Morris and Mohit Sharma have also done their bit to bolster the team but batting would be a concern for them given the struggle they endured while chasing a small total against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.

It was Jadeja`s blitzkrieg which powered the visitors to a four-wicket win after they found themselves in a tight corner when they were reduced to 89 for six in the 17th over.
