Prior to what could be an exciting clash at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai between these two sides, here is a stat-based prediction of what could happen on the cricket field when the teams meet on Monday.

1. Toss Prediction

CSK vs PBKS Toss Prediction

Punjab Kings have won just 1 out of the 7 tosses in IPL 2022. On the other hand, Chennai have won 2 out of their 7 tosses. So based on that stat, Chennai could win the toss ahead of this fixture.

2. Win Possibility

The two teams have met each other a total of 26 times in the IPL. While Chennai have won 15 of these fixtures, Punjab have registered a win in the remaining 11 of these matches including the one earlier in the season. While only 2 points separate Punjab and Chennai in the ongoing season, the fact remains that Punjab are coming on the back of two back-to-back defeats while Chennai won a thriller against Mumbai. Based on the current form and the overall advantage then, predicting Chennai to win this game.

3. Team of the Day

Hard to look beyond Chennai for the Team of the Day. They might be at the ninth position on the points tally but things can change quickly in this format of the game. The Men in Yellow would want to work on the fielding lapses and expect more runs from their top-order which could make them an even better unit.

4. Powerplay Score

The average powerplay score at the Wankhede Stadium in IPL 2022 has been around 45. Punjab’s top-order has experience and the ability to score loads of runs but somehow they haven’t played as per their potential. Chennai’s Ruturaj Gaikwad also has had just one good innings so far. Both sides are expected to score less than 45 in the first six overs as even the wicket has assisted the seam bowling early on in the powerplay in these conditions.

5 Average first innings and second innings score

The average first innings score at this venue is 167.28, taking into consideration the first seven fixtures at this venue in IPL 2022. Similarly, the average second innings score at this venue is 164.28.
