Match Preview

In the 53rd game of the Indian Premier League, Punjab Kings are set to host reigning champions Chennai Super Kings. The match is set to take place at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, on May 5, Sunday. The upcoming game will be a rematch of their last meeting, on April 28, at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. 

In their last meeting, CSK went down to PBKS by a margin of seven wickets. While the Yellow Army currently sits at the fourth spot on the standings, PBKS have occupied the seventh spot on the points table. 

Toss Prediction

Punjab and Chennai have already battled it out in the current season of the Indian Premier League. In their last game at the Chepauk, visiting (stand-in) skipper Sam Curran won the toss over Chennai’s Ruturaj Gaikwad. Considering this, we think CSK’s captain would win the toss as Punjab will be the hosts in the forthcoming game. 

Win Possibility

Punjab and Chennai have played a total of 29 games against each other in the cash-rich league so far. Out of those games, Chennai have maintained a slight edge over their counterparts, with 15 wins in their account while Punjab emerged victorious in 14 games. While their last meeting displayed sheer dominance of the Punjab-based franchise, the overall records say otherwise. 

Chennai Super Kings, the five-time winners are undoubtedly one of the strongest franchises in the tournament. Not only this, but CSK are also on the verge of securing a playoff spot. Needless to say, the Yellow Army would go all out on their counterparts and it would be an easy win for them over Punjab to secure two more points. 

Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score

The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium of Dharamshala is all set to host the first match of the season. The picturesque cricketing venue in Himachal serves as the second home ground to the Punjab Kings. The cricket ground has hosted a total of 11 IPL matches and has a first-inning score of 180 runs. Considering this, we can expect the first-inning score of the upcoming game to hover around 195-205, and the powerplay score to be 60-65.
