  • Ruturaj Gaikwad missed out on his second hundred this season as he was out for 98 against SRH. However, he looks in great form and another century could be on the way. Back him as CSK top batter. With the ball, Matheesha Pathirana has been consistent, taking 13 wickets. He is a good choice for CSK top bowler.
  • Jonny Bairstow made a scintillating return to form and scored a brilliant century against KKR. He would be eyeing another impactful innings and thus could be backed as PBKS top batter. In a tough game, the best players step up and there is no better bowler than Rabada in PBKS. Back him as top bowler.
  • Shivam Dube has been on a six hitting spree for CSK. He has scored 26 sixes this season in nine games. Back him to hit 1.5 sixes in the match.

Toss Predictions

The captains have preferred to bowl given the dew factor but if a team puts big runs on board, it is not each to chase at Chepauk. Still, we feel captain winning the toss should chase.

Weather & Pitch Report


It will be a hot evening, with temperature hovering around 30 degrees. Dew could play a role and thus team batting second will have an advantage but that does not guarantee a win.

Pitch Report:

The surface at Chepauk has played better this season. The runs have not been hard to come by; however, spinners have got some grip and turn. Also, bowling in line of the stumps has got batters into trouble. A score of 180-200 is par here.

Team NEWS: 

CSK Team News: 

CSK did not play Maheesh Theekshana in the previous game in Chepauk which means they are comfortable playing three pacers and Ravindra Jadeja as a specialist spinner, and Moeen Ali. We don’t see CSK making any changes to the playing XI for the game against PBKS as well.

PBKS Team News: 

PBKS could be boosted by the return to captain Shikhar Dhawan for the CSK clash. Also, the team could play Sikandar Raza ahead of Rilee Rossouw given his all-round abilities where he will also provide a good spin bowling option.

Winning Chances: 

CSK are the favourites to team. The Ruturaj Gaikwad led side has a legacy of winning home games and they have been outstanding at Chepauk this season as well. With the likes of Gaikwad, Dube in great touch with the bat and a lethal bowling attack at disposal, beating CSK would be a hard pill to swallow for PBKS. We are backing CSK to win.

Chennai Super Kings to beat Punjab Kings

Chennai Super Kings a 80% chance to win this match 

Punjab Kings a 20% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Chennai Super Kings 

Ruturaj Gaikwad 

Ruturaj Gaikwad continued his sublime touch and scored 98 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Gaikwad has peaked at the right moment for CSK. He is the tournament’s second leading run scorer, with 447 runs to his name

Shivam Dube 

Shivam Dube looks unstoppable at the moment. There has hardly been a game where he did not contribute to the team’s win. Dube scored 39 not out in 20 balls against SRH. Overall, he has scored 350 runs this season.

Ravindra Jadeja 

Ravindra Jadeja got enough grip and turn against SRH and got a wicket for just 22 runs. He will be an ace weapon for CSK against PBKS.

Matheesha Pathirana 

Matheesha Pathirana’s remarkable consistency has been one of the main reasons for CSK winning run this season. He has been outstanding with the old ball, taking crucial wickets. Pathirana has taken 13 wickets this season so far.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Shardul Thakur, Sameer Rizvi, Mitchell Santner, Shaik Rasheed, Rachin Ravindra 

Shardul Thakur can be used if CSK need a bowler as an impact player while Sameer Rizvi or Shaik Rasheed should be used if there comes a need to use a batter.

Punjab Kings 

Jonny Bairstow 

Jonny Bairstow was horribly out of form and was thus dropped from the team, however, he made a roaring return to PBKS and scored a magnificent 108 to help PBKS chase 262.

Prabhsimran Singh 

Prabhsimran Singh also returned to form and scored 54 in 20 balls as PBKS pulled off the highest successful run chase in IPL history. He is a very skilled batter and would love to continue the momentum.

Kagiso Rabada 

Rabada had an off day against KKR but he has been the standout bowler for PBKS, taking 10 wickets for the team. He will be vital for PBKS as the team would need him to strike with the new ball against and in-form CSK batting line-up.

Rahul Chahar 

Rahul Chahar can be handy for PBKS. The conditions in Chennai are helpful for spinners and Rahul would want to do well by exploiting the turning track.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Ashutosh Sharma, V kaverappa, Rishi Dhawan, Shivam Singh, Prince Choudhary 

Ashutosh Sharma should be used as an impact player given the kind of impact he has made on the PBKS team. Also, the team can use V Kaverappa if the team is forced to use a bowler.

Team Forms: 

CSK Team Form: 

CSK have played nine games, winning five and losing four. The team has been dominant at home and lost just one game to LSG.

PBKS Team Form: 

PBKS have just three wins to show in IPL 2024 and they need wins in all their remaining matches to qualify for the playoffs.
