Match Preview

MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings are all set to take on the Punjab Kings in their next clash at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on April 30. Super Kings are coming off after a loss against the Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur and have slipped off to third position on the points table. On the other hand, Punjab Kings took down the five-time IPL winners by 13 runs in their last clash, played in Mohali. Both the teams are looking forward to winning the next encounter and strengthening their positions in the tournament. 

Pitch Report

The Chepauk Stadium is the fortress of the MS Dhoni-led squad and has always favoured the yellow brigade. The pitch has favoured the batters as well as assisted in the spin domination during the matches, and the minimal grass has helped spinners. The average first-inning score at this cricketing venue is 158. 

Team Analysis

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings started off the season on a good note and have managed to register wins in five out of the seven matches they have played. Though CSK has big names in the batting lineup, most players, including Ambati Rayudu failed to perform in their last match against Rajasthan Royals. However, names like Shivam Dube, Devon Conway, and Ruturaj Gaikwad can help the team put up a good score. In the bowling lineup, they have Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali, and needless to say, when it comes to wicketkeeping, the best MS Dhoni is there leading the team.

Punjab Kings

Though Punjab Kings aren’t known for picking up the best team, they must be given credit for picking names like Shikhar Dhawan and Rabada. The strength of the team lies in their hitters with names like Rajapaksa, Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, and Jitesh Sharma. Apart from it, they are expected to win big with their bowling lineup of names like Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, and Sam Curran.
