Punjab and Chennai are all set to go head to head at the Wankhede Stadium in the 38th match of the Indian T20 League. These two teams have played each other once where Punjab scored 180 runs and then bundled out their opponents for 126. But in their previous match, Punjab suffered a massive nine-wicket defeat against Delhi. Whereas Chennai dominated their arch-rivals Mumbai, thanks to MS Dhoni’s vintage performance.
Chennai is gradually improving after winning two out of their last three games. Their team has finally clicked and is looking like a formidable unit. Their batting has been consistent with great performances by Robin Uthappa, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali and Ambati Rayudu. Similarly, the Chennai bowling has also improved with impactful performances by Dwayne Bravo, Maheesh Theekshana and Mukesh Choudhary.
Punjab has also looked like a great team so far this season with an incredibly balanced roster. But they have suffered some big defeats in their recent few games. They have a strong batting lineup with openers like Mayank Agarwal and Shikar Dhawan who scored a lot of runs. In the bowling department, Kagiso Rabada and Rahul Chahar have looked like a dominant duo as they have had crucial breakthroughs while being extremely economical. Liam Livingstone has also delivered important contributions as their key all-rounder.
