Rajasthan's citadel has been breached just once in the tournament so far when they were outplayed by Mumbai Indians, and the hosts would look to sign off their home campaign on a high.
Moreover, Rajasthan were beaten by the table-toppers in an away game and they would like to return the compliment.
Rajasthan have done exceedingly well while chasing, their last three victories were comprehensive, and Chennai have emerged as superb defenders.
The batsmen in both the teams are in sparkling form. The only thing that gives a slight advantage to Chennai is their bowling.
Mohit Sharma has been a revelation upfront while R Ashwin and Dwayne Bravo have done well in the middle overs.
The key to Rajasthan would be to contain the marauding Chennai batsmen.
James Faulkner, Ajit Chandila, Kevon Cooper and Shane Watson have a tough task at hand but if they click, Rajasthan would be in with a very good chance.
Rahul Dravid, Ajinkya Rahane, Watson and Sanju Samson form a very formidable batting line-up, capable of chasing down any total, so it will boil down to how the home bowlers perform.
