The 14th season of the Indian T20 League will have its second Friday and it will witness the Dream11 clash between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). PBKS had a narrow escape against Rajasthan Royals in their first match Punjab would be thanking their stars that Sanju Samson’s last hit didn’t clear the ropes.
On the other side of the pitch, we have CSK, who were simply outplayed in their first match and comprehensively thumped by Delhi Capitals. Chennai’s bowling attack in the opening match looked flavourless and struggled throughout for control against Delhi. However knowing MS Dhoni, he won’t be ringing in a lot of changes so early in the tournament but the players need to start delivering sooner rather than later.
It would be interesting to see if MS Dhoni’s side can bounce back in the second game or will Punjab cling on to another win.
Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Live Streaming: Star Sports Network, Disney+ Hotstar
Time: 7:30 PM IST
What to Expect (PITCH REPORT):
The pitch at Wankhede is a pleasure to bat on. Apart from the match which was played yesterday the sides have touched down a total of 180 runs in an innings but looking at yesterday’s match one can clearly see some swing in the initial overs. Although the pitch yet looks pretty good to bat on and bowlers will struggle if they didn’t get the pace and bounce from the track.
Due has always played a part in Mumbai and which makes chasing looks like a better option for the teams.
