Match Preview

IPL has been a huge success among the fans this year getting record viewership across the globe. Kings XI Punjab despite scoring massive runs are finding themselves at the bottom 2 position in the points table. Chennai has not been the Super Kings we know every season. Their strengths batting and spin bowling department have been their Achilles heel this season. Both teams are currently struggling to find rhythm and looking for an elusive win which could turn around the momentum this season. We expect both teams to come up with spirited performances to get them out of the hole with a win.

Teams Preview

Kings XI Punjab Preview

Kings XI Punjab rely heavily on their opening duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal in the batting department. Nicholas Pooran looks good for his cameos in last 2 matches but other middle order batsmen need to score more runs to help their team. They have a long batting line-up with batsmen till No.8.

Bowling has been Punjab`s biggest worry as they have given 190+ runs in last 2 matches. Sheldon Cottrell and Mohammed Shami have been excellent with the new ball but are struggling in the death overs. Spinners K Gowtham and Ravi Bishnoi needs to be used wisely by the skipper by finishing their 8 overs inside 15-16 overs.  

Top players to bet on:

Mayank Agarwal – Mayank has set their batting department on fire this season with scores of 89, 26, 106, & 25 so far. He is scoring at a rate of 150+ easily in the matches. We expect Mayank to continue his good form at the top.  

Mohammed Shami – Shami has 8 wickets at an economy of less than 8 RPO. He will be eager to bowl against out of sorts CSK top order in this match.

Kings XI Punjab Predicted Playing XI:

Lokesh Rahul (C & wk), Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell/Mujeeb Ur Rehman, Sarfaraz Khan/Mandeep Singh, James Neesham, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Sheldon Cottrell

Chennai Super Kings Preview

CSK failed to chase down the total in the third consecutive match. Their top order were reduced to 42/4 early in the match against SRH. Ravindra Jadeja (50 runs) and MS Dhoni (47* runs) tried their best with the bat but left too many for the end. CSK need to bat more sensibly in the first 5-6 overs to score more runs.

CSK bowlers failed to capitalize on the match from 69/4 with their top-4 back in the hut. They leaked 64 runs in the last 5 overs and fielding was a big worry with dropped catches and misfields. Deepak Chahar picked up 2 wickets while Piyush Chawla and  Shardul Thakur picked up a wicket each.

Top players to bet on:

Faf Du Plessis – Faf has been the most consistent batsmen for the CSK team and he was unfortunately run-out in the last match.  He has scored 195 runs with 2 fifties this season so far.

Deepak Chahar – Deepak Chahar has taken 5 wickets at an economy rate of 8.25 RPO. He will look to continue to take wickets in the power play and strangle the opposition batsmen.

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo/Imran Tahir, Sam Curran, Piyush Chawla, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar

Weather Conditions

Dubai is expected to have hot and humid weather with dew expected in the second half of the match. We expect the match to go ahead with no interruptions.  

Venue Details

Dubai is a good pitch to bat on if batsmen settle on as they can take advantage of conditions. Bowlers will look to take advantage of the slower conditions on this pitch. We can expect scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this pitch.

Toss: To Bat

Teams will look to bat first as the pitch tends to slow down in the second innings considerably.  Chasing teams have faltered more often in the matches this season.

Winning Prediction

Kings XI Punjab has an excellent batting line-up with in-form openers and aggressive middle order batsmen while CSK has failed to get good starts with the bat and often been left to chase too many runs in final overs.  Bowling is a big worry for KXIP while CSK has a made too many mistakes in their bowling with no-balls and dropped catches and poor out fielding. We expect KXIP to take advantage of the CSK`s rustiness in the fielding and batting departments in this match.

KINGS XI PUNJAB will win the match
