The Chennai Super Kings return home after a mixed bag of away results to take on the Punjab Kings. The Super Kings suffered a big loss against Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur where the inaugural champions dominated Chennai in each department. Whereas Punjab had a decent result against the Lucknow Super Giants in their reverse fixture at their home in Mohali.
The Chennai Super Kings have looked like one of the most complete teams in IPL 2023 which is carried by veteran leadership and youthful exuberance. Their batting has been a breath of fresh air with the likes of Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube in sublime form. Whereas the bowling is gradually improving, giving MS Dhoni a chance to win his fifth title.
Whereas the Punjab Kings, have been one of the surprise teams in IPL 2023 because of their positive free-flowing cricket. In the batting department, despite the absence of Shikhar Dhawan, Punjab’s young brigade has been on fire with someone like Jitesh Sharma, having a season to remember. Whereas with the ball, Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar have formed a formidable duo. Lastly, Sam Curran coming into his own has given the PBKS squad much-needed balance, courtesy of his contributions across departments.
