CSK vs PBKS: Team Previews

Chennai Super Kings

Led by Ruturaj Gaikwad, Chennai Super Kings have had a topsy-turvy journey in the IPL 2024, winning five out of their nine group-stage matches. 

While skipper Gaikwad has showcased scintillating form, explosive southpaw Shivam Dube has emerged as their go-to accelerator in the middle overs. 

Furthermore, with Daryl Mitchell regaining his mojo, the Super Kings are looking lethal as a batting unit despite opener Ajinkya Rahane's prolonged poor run. 

In the bowling department, Mustafizur Rahman, who has picked the most wickets for CSK, will play his last game this season. 

With Matheesha Pathirana in sublime form, the Men in yellow would like his Indian peers, particularly Deepak Chahar, to assist him in restricting the Kings to a sub-par score.

On the other hand, Punjab Kings have been below-par across departments in the IPL 2024, managing only three victories in nine outings. 

Despite having famed international players like Bairstow, Rilee Rossouw and Liam Livingstone, the Kings have been over-reliant on Shashank and Ashutosh, who have saved them from embarrassment several times. 

So, overall, their lower middle order is in sublime form and could give CSK a run for their money. Therefore, the defending champions must use Matheesha Pathirana wisely to minimise the damage. 

On the bowling front, Punjab have found a hero in Harshal Patel, who, despite going at over ten an over, has scalped the most wickets for them in the tournament. 

Considering they don't have a really solid spin department, it's high time Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh start picking wickets at crucial junctures.

CSK vs PBKS: MA Chidambaram Stadium Pitch Report

The surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai will be balanced, having something in it for the batters as well as bowlers. The new ball bowlers might get a hint of seam movement early on, with the track gradually becoming better for batting. 

There will also be some turn on offer for the spinners, who are expected to capitalise on it in the middle overs. It's a black-soil pitch and considering dew will play a role here, expect the toss-winner to bowl first.

Shikhar Dhawan is expected to make a comeback after recovering from injury. If he returns, the stylish southpaw will lead PBKS, replacing Rilee Rossouw in the playing XI.
