Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Team Previews

Chennai Super Kings (Match Odds – 1.62)

As things stand, Chennai Super Kings are currently second on the ladder and will be looking to climb to the top with a win in this match. A win for them will also secure third place on the table, as Royal Challengers Bangalore will be unable to score 20 points. The Super Kings have only lost four matches, all while defending, and that is something that will be on their minds. Having said that, we don’t think they’ll be too concerned just yet.

Chennai Super Kings have been at their dominant best, as evidenced by their excellent net run-rate. Aside from their leadership, the Super Kings’ opening pair has been the main reason for their success. The numbers show that Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis have been outstanding at the top of the order. The regular run has also contributed to CSK’s middle-order not getting enough chances to close out games. The outcome of the previous match should serve as a wake-up call for both the management and the middle-order batsmen.

Overall, they have a strong case, and with their experience, they should be able to overcome these obstacles. A win in the upcoming match will effectively end the debate, but a loss could set off alarm bells. Having said that, they will rely on their experienced players in the upcoming match, and if they are able to raise their game, CSK should cruise to an easy victory.

Chennai Super Kings Squad

Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Robin Uthappa, N Jagadeesan, MS Dhoni (c), Cheteshwar Pujara, Hari Nishanth, Dwayne Bravo, Bhagath Varma, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mitchell Santner, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Deepak Chahar, Harishankar Reddy, Imran Tahir, Karn Sharma, KM Asif, Lungi Ngidi, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Shardul Thakur, Jason Behrendorff

Predicted XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood

Punjab Kings (Match Odds – 2.30)

Punjab Kings are currently sixth on the points table, with their net run rate odds stacked against them. They have a net run rate of -0.241, which is better than the Royals’ but significantly lower than KKR’s. Given the scenarios, the Kings are effectively out of contention, and it will be interesting to see how they approach this upcoming match.

The previous match was a familiar storey for them, as despite getting off to the desired start, they were unable to close the deal. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal managed to put up a solid stand in a short period of time, but a lack of contributions from the middle-order pushed the Punjab Kings back. Punjab’s management seemed to have high hopes for Nicholas Pooran, but now that the tournament is over, we may see a change in this upcoming contest.

Punjab’s middle-order issues have been well documented, and they will be vulnerable against the Kings bowling unit, which has a plethora of middle-overs bowling options. On the bowling front, the Punjab Kings have been solid, with almost everyone chipping in. The most recent match, against Royal Challengers Bangalore, was more of an outlier, with Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, and Mohammad Shami all carted for runs.

Overall, the Punjab Kings have not performed as poorly as the points table suggests, but they are arguably the most disappointed team this season. They failed to capitalise when they were in command and will be disappointed after missing out on a playoff spot by a hair’s breadth. They’ve also struggled to deal with high-pressure situations. On paper, they have all the firepower an IPL team requires, and if their usual suspects perform well in this upcoming match, Chennai Super Kings will have their work cut out for them.

Punjab Kings Squad

KL Rahul (c), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Prabhsimran Singh, Nicholas Pooran, Sarfaraz Khan, Dawid Malan, Shahrukh Khan, Deepak Hooda, Moises Henriques, Jalaj Saxena, Saurabh Kumar, Fabian Allen, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Harpreet Brar, Utkarsh Singh, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Ishan Porel, Darshan Nalkande, Chris Jordan, Riley Meredith, Jhye Richardson

Predicted XI: KL Rahul (c & wk), Mayank Agarwal, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Sarfaraz Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Moises Henriques, Harpreet Brar, Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh

Pitch and Weather Conditions

In the previous match, Dubai was on a slower side, and both teams struggled to score 130-odd runs. Pacers and spinners both got good purchase on the pitch and easily strangled the batters. In this match, we anticipate an average score of 140-150 runs.

Dubai will be hot and humid, and the dew may settle down in the second innings, making it more difficult for bowlers to grip the ball.

Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Match Prediction

It is a crucial game for both teams, albeit for different reasons. Chennai Super Kings will be looking to get back on track and secure a spot in the first qualifier. Punjab Kings, on the other hand, will be playing as if they have nothing to lose and will be looking to reclaim some lost pride by defeating one of the tournament’s best teams. Both teams have had problems with their middle orders, and this will be another test of that.

Given how the two teams have performed thus far in the tournament and their respective on-paper combinations, betting on a Chennai Super Kings should be the way to go here.
