PBKS vs CSK: Team Previews

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings have had a topsy-turvy IPL 2024 campaign, occupying the seventh position in the IPL 2024 points table with four wins and six defeats. 

Following an emphatic win against the Titans, the Kings incurred four crushing defeats before regaining their mojo with two convincing victories. 

More importantly, they handed CSK a seven-wicket thrashing in the previous game, which must've boosted their confidence heading to this match. 

With Jonny Bairstow finally rediscovering himself and the likes of Rilee Rossouw, Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma chipping in with crucial contributions, Punjab have a much more confident batting unit at the moment. 

So, the onus will be on their bowlers to restrict CSK's rampant batting lineup if they want to extend their winning streak.

Just like their counterparts, CSK have undergone an IPL campaign full of highs and lows. Despite Ajinkya Rahane's prolonged poor form, the Super Kings have succeeded with the bat more often than not. 

The credit for their batting success definitely goes to skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad, who has led them from the front. 

Besides Gaikwad, Shivam Dube is the solitary CSK batter to showcase consistency in the tournament. 

There have been some sparkles of brilliance from Daryl Mitchell as well, but the Kiwi star needs to step up more consistently for the team's cause. 

Meanwhile, CSK's bowling unit hasn't been that penetrative, failing to scalp wickets at crucial junctures. 

Moreover, they will also miss Mustafizur Rahman due to national commitments, making them slightly more reliant on their under-performing Indian core and Matheesha Pathirana.

PBKS vs CSK: Dharamsala Pitch Report

The surface at the HPCA stadium in Dharamsala will be hard, having a hint of extra bounce as compared to the other IPL 2024 venues. 

However, as it's an afternoon match, don't expect the seamers to get substantial seam movement early on with the new ball. 

Batters, who are generally good players off the back foot, will enjoy their time in the middle here. There could be some turn on offer for the spinners, but overall it will be a good batting deck. 

Statistically, the ground has witnessed 8.60 runs per over in 11 IPL encounters. Considering it's the first game of the season here, the toss-winner is expected to bowl first.
