Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings IPL T20 Match Prediction

The Kings go head to head which sees Punjab Kings on the hunt for their second win in two IPL games this season against Chennai Super Kings. CSK on the other hand, came off second best against Delhi Capitals in their first game and will be very keen to get that first win under their belts as soon as possible. Read on as we preview this clash of the 2021 IPL. The match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai and will get underway at 19:30 local time.

Neither side came into this year’s IPL after a particularly successful campaign last year. Kings XI Punjab ending the season in 6th position for the second edition in a row. CSK fared worse, finishing only above Rajasthan Royals in 7th position, a far cry from the three titles and five times runners-up.

Punjab Kings have the advantage of getting their season underway with a win and seeing their top order fire immediately. However, in spite of getting good numbers from the previous overs, they will be disappointed that they only took five runs from the 20th over. CSK only need a couple of their batsmen who made useful runs in the first game to contribute a few more and join Suresh Raina in the half-century makers list.

PBKS vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

We are yet to see any captain roll the dice and opt to bat first in this year’s IPL. Will KL Rahul or MS Dhoni become the first exceptions? We doubt it.

PBKS vs CSK Pitch Report

The Wankhede Stadium has been the venue for the big runs so far in this year’s competition. We’ve had a 85 from Shikhar Dhawan, 91 from KL Rahul and 119 from Sanju Samson. There will certainly be runs on offer again for the batsmen.
