Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings.

Two teams who started the tournament in contrasting styles and now that we are halfway into the tournament are separated by just 2 points. CSK had a very dismal start to their IPL 2022 campaign as they lost their first 5 games while Punjab had a very impressive start to their campaign. But Punjab being Punjab found a way to somehow bottle up that winning run and CSK being CSK, somehow found a way back including that nail-biting 17 run chase in the last over.

In their last game, Punjab was however bowled out for a mere 119 runs and their strategy of playing 6 batsmen and 5 bowlers might need a little adjustment considering how on and off their batting department has been. They should add some more consistency and firepower to their batting lineup. Sri Lanka’s Bhanuka Rajapaksa might be called back to the playing XI after the good performances he displayed at the start of the season.

Chennai Super Kings on the other hand will be looking for more form and consistency from their middle order and Moen Ali and Ambati Rayudu in particular. They will need to step up and make sure that CSK has a nice platform to set or chase huge targets. A lot is being left at the end for Dhoni and Jadeja to do.

All in all, this promises to be a great game of cricket and another great serving in this year’s IPL feast.

Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings Pitch Report

The Wankhede Stadium is now acting like the truest Wankhede wicket where there are a lot of runs on offer. There is a lot of bounce, good carry to the bat and also the dew factor that kicks in. The last game between RR and DC saw this being a very high scoring encounter and it shall continue this way. Expect a run feast even today.
