  • Jonny Bairstow has found form when it matters the most for PBKS. He has scores of 108 and 46 in last two games. He could be backed as PBKS top batter. Rabada has taken 11 wickets for PBKS and is the team’s best pacer. Back him as top bowler.
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 62 in the last game against PBKS. He has scored over 500 runs in the tournament and has a century, a 98 and 62 in last three innings. Back him as CSK top batter. Matheesha Pathirana should be CSK’s top bowler if he is fit enough to play. Else, someone like a Tushar Deshpande could be backed as top bowler as he too has great ability to pick wickets with the new as well as the old ball.
  • The HPCA stadium is not a high scoring venue. Swing bowlers get some help and who better than Arshdeep Singh can exploit the swinging conditions. Back Arshdeep to pick over 1.5 wickets in the match.

Toss Predictions

The captains will opt to chase if they win the toss as defending a score is tough these days with the Impact player rule as captains have the luxury of playing an extra batter.

Weather & Pitch Report


The conditions will be pleasant with temperature in early 20s. There is a 20 per cent chance of rain as well in Dharamsala.

Pitch Report:

The surface at HPCA will help the fast bowlers early on. However, it will get better to bat as the game progresses. The pace and bounce will be consistent while fast outfield will ensure value for shots. A score of around 180 should be par here.

Winning Chances: 

CSK are the favourites to team. The Ruturaj Gaikwad led side has its back against the wall and needs wins in three out of the four games. After losing to same team at home, CSK would come hard at PBKS. They have a few issues in their bowling but the quality of batting makes up for the loopholes. Also, PBKS themselves could blow hot and cold thus CSK are favourites for us.

Chennai Super Kings to beat Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings a 100% chance to win this match 

Chennai Super Kings a 0% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Punjab Kings 

Jonny Bairstow 

Jonny Bairstow scored a magnificent 108 against KKR.  Bairstow played another decent knock and scored a quick-fire 46 against CSK to help PBKS fetch an important win. Bairstow will look to ride on momentum and play a similar kind of impactful knock.

Shashank Singh 

Shashank has been a great find for PBKS. He has been the sole reason why PBKS can still be hopeful of making it to the playoffs. He has been very consistent, scoring 288 runs this season at a strike rate of near 170.

Kagiso Rabada 

Rabada had a great outing against CSK and bowled a spell of 1-23. He has been by far the best PBKS bowler, with 11 wickets to his name. PBKS will pin their hopes on Rabada to stop CSK from posting a big score or chasing one by picking crucial wickets.

Harpreet Brar 

Harpreet Brar created quite a few problems for CSK in last game and picked two wickets for 17 runs. Brar with his left arm spinner is not an easy bowler to score off. Since a lot of teams underestimate him, he finds himself among wickets in most games.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

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

Ashutosh Sharma or Prabhimran Singh are two likely impact players options. It will depend on match situation who PBKS prefers. If they are chasing a big score, Ashutosh looks a better bet but if the score is not massive and PBKS lose early wicket, Prabhsimran can come in.

Chennai Super Kings 

Ruturaj Gaikwad 

Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 62 against PBKS in previous game. He scored 98 against SRH and 108 against LSG as well. Gaikwad has peaked at the right moment and CSK will need him to be at the top of his prowess against PBKS in a must win game.

Shivam Dube 

Shivam Dube was dismissed for a duck in the last game but he has been in great form for the team, scoring 350 runs, and will be a key member of the batting lineup. Dube would be keen on making an impact as CSK rest a lot on him in middle overs.

Ravindra Jadeja 

Ravindra Jadeja has not been at his best in IPL 2024 season but CSK rely a lot of hopes on Jadeja, both with the bat and ball. In the absence of a few key bowlers, Jadeja needs to put his hands up.

Matheesha Pathirana 

Matheesha Pathirana has taken 13 wickets this season so far for CSK. He has been outstanding for the Men in Yellow but his fitness is a concern. However, if he manages to make it to the playing XI, his four overs will decide CSK’s fate in the match.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Sameer Rizvi, Mitchell Santner, Shaik Rasheed, Mukesh Choudhary, Prashant Solank 

Mukesh Choudhary can be used if CSK need a bowler while Shaik Rasheed or Sameer Rizvi could be preferred if the team needs a batter.

Team Forms: 

PBKS Team Form: 

PBKS have four wins in 10 games. The team has picked decent form in the last couple of games and beat KKR and CSK. They need to win all their games to stay alive in the tournament.

CSK Team Form: 

CSK have run out of gas in last few games. The team has lost three out of the last four games and find themselves at fifth position in points table.
