In the upcoming clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the 49th IPL 2024 season, CSK faces a pivotal encounter at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. 

Sitting comfortably at the third spot in the points table with 10 points, CSK eyes consistency to solidify their playoff berth.

In their recent encounter against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, CSK showcased their prowess by clinching a resounding victory, triumphing by a margin of 78 runs. 

Putting up a formidable total of 212 while batting first, CSK's bowlers, spearheaded by Mustafizur Rahman and Tushar Deshpande, restricted the visitors to a modest 134 runs. Deshpande's stellar performance, clinching four wickets while conceding 27 runs, underscored his burgeoning talent and utility to the team.

Considering Ajinkya Rahane's recent dip in form, where he managed just 9 runs against LSG, CSK might opt for Sameer Rizvi and Daryl Mitchell to partner CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad in the opening slots.

Furthermore, Deepak Chahar's recent struggles to secure wickets prompt CSK to make a strategic alteration. Shardul Thakur emerges as a viable replacement, bringing versatility and aggression to the bowling lineup.
