CSK vs PBKS Match Toss Prediction

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.

CSK vs PBKS 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.

Chennai Weather 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.

CSK Team News & Playing 11

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.

CSK Key Players

  • 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.

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.

CSK Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube, Daryl Mitchell, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), , Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Mustafizur Rahman, Matheesha Pathirana.

PBKS Team News & Playing 11

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.

PBKS Key Players

  • 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.

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.

PBKS Predicted Playing 11

Jonny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, Sam Curran (c), Sikandar Raza, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Shashank Singh, Harpreet Brar, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh

CSK are clear favourites to win on betting sites. CSK are a very tough team to beat at home and PBKS will have to be at the peak of their prowess to pull off a win which we don’t see happening.    

Who will win Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings T20 Match?

We suggest backing CSK to win. The team rarely loses a home game given their familiarity with the conditions. With batters and bowlers in great form, CSK look set to continue their juggernaut against PBKS.

🏆 CSK vs PBKS Prediction

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.
