The Kings sit head to head, watching the Punjab Kings for their second win in two IPL matches this season against the Chennai Super Kings. On the other hand, CSK finished second against the Delhi Capitals in their first game and will be very keen to get a win under their belts at the earliest. Read ahead previewing this 2021 IPL clash. The match will be played at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium and will start at 19:30 local time.
Neither side came up in this year’s IPL after a particularly successful campaign last year. Kings XI Punjab finished 6th for the second consecutive edition. CSK fared poorly, finishing only 7th from the Rajasthan Royals, three titles and runners-up five times.
Punjab Kings have the advantage of winning their season with a win and seeing their top order immediately. However, despite bringing in good numbers from the previous overs, they will be disappointed that they took just five runs from the 20th over. CSK only need a pair of their batsmen who scored useful runs to contribute a bit more in the first game and include Suresh Raina in the half-century making list.
PBKS Top Players | IPL T20 | Today Match Prediction
KL Rahul – Selected by many pundits as the likely winner of the Orange Cap for the second season, Rahul did not disappoint to score 91 against Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2021.
Chris Gayle – Nowadays you will never know what you want from Chris Gayle, although there will be no complaints after he scored 40 runs in 28 balls in the first game. He can still hit a long ball and has many more IPL runs left.
Mohammed Shami – Despite his exceptional contributions in 2019 and 2020, Shami’s fitness was questioned even before this year’s IPL. A 2–33 comeback in their first game was a fruitful comeback and we expect it to improve as the tournament progresses.
CSK Top Players | IPL T20 | Today Match Prediction
Suresh Raina – CSK’s top run-scorer in the first game would curse the fact that he was dismissed via a run-out in the first game. If he is well set in this match, he should not be dismissed in the same way.
Sam Curran – Slightly expensive with the ball against the Delhi Capitals, but explosive with the bat from No. 8. You always expect Kuren to perform with both of them, as they are well before their bowling match.
Dwayne Bravo – At the age of 37, Dwayne Bravo showed no signs of slowing down and his skills are still in tip-top status. We only saw him with the ball in his hand and there is no doubt that he would be itching to show his batting in this game.
Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings Prediction
Chennai Super Kings have a team of match winners, but the question is always whether or not they will be able to realize their potential and whether they will win or make cameo appearances which is ultimately not enough. On the other hand Punjab Kings still have old performances and at this early stage of the tournament, we do not think age will still stick with them. We are supporting Punjab Kings to win two out of two.
PBKS vs CSK match toss prediction
We have to watch any captain to bat first in this year’s IPL and choose to bat first. Will KL Rahul or MS Dhoni be the first exception? We doubt it.
