Punjab Kings had done a fine job in posting 221 runs against RR but they will need to pick up their bowling. The Mohali-based franchise almost conceded the target after Sanju Samson played a blinder of an innings. Thus, PBKS will want to come up with a better batting performance.
CSK will be delighted that their experienced batsman Suresh Raina made a solid comeback as he scored a fine fifty on his return. Sam Curran also added the finishing touches whereas Moeen Ali also batted fearlessly. But CSK’s bowling was not up to the mark in their opening match and they will aim to pull up their socks.
Head to Head record: Overall matches – 24, Won by CSK – 15, Won by PBKS – 9.
Chennai will hold the advantage over Punjab as far as the head-to-head battle is concerned.
Players to look out for: Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, Deepak Chahar, MS Dhoni, and Sam Curran will hold the key for CSK.
Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan, and Nicholas Pooran will be the key players for PBKS.
It is expected to be another run-fest at the Wankhede Stadium.
