Chennai Super Kings(CSK) will be looking to snatch victory in the battle of kings when they will face Punjab Kings(PBKS) on Friday in the Indian Premier League.

CSK have lost their opening match against DC. But the newly named PBKS have won their opening match against Rajasthan Royals in this venue.

Inside PBKS:

The team is now in a very positive mood. The batsmen had batted really well in the first game. Gayle, Rahul, specially Hooda had played an outstanding knock. Mayank and Pooran need to concentrate more to score big.

K L Rahul is a contender of the Orange Cap

Shahrukh Khan was impressive thigh he didn’t get that much chance. The bowlers were good as well. Shami, Richardson, young Arshdeep Singh had bowled in the right manner.

Riley Meredith was expensive in the first match. We may see Chris Jordan in his place.

Inside CSK:

The return of Raina in such an explosive form was a good sign for CSK. But they need to look upon their opening pair/ they may not immediately change any player but have to build trust among them.

Moeen Ali’s up in the order was also a positive move for CSK. But Dhoni needs to come up in the batting order. Sam Curran, Rayudu was also in fine form.

PBKS vs CSK: What to expect

The pitch at the Wankhede Stadium has been a batsman’s paradise. The pitch won’t be the change that much. Though due to the dew factor, winning the toss teams will like to chase. 190+ runs on the board are required to fight.

Probable XI of PBKS:

There will be not much change in the team. Rahu will be opening with either Mayank or Gayle. Hooda, Pooran will come after them. We may see Sharukh Khan up in the order also.

Moises Henriques or Jordan can play in place of Meredith. Jhye Richardson, Shami, Arshdeep will be the pacers. Murugan Ashwin will be the only spinner.

ShahRukh is the new exciting recruit in PKBS against CSK

PBKS team against CSK: Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (C and WK), Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Shahrukh Khan, Jhye Richardson, Riley Meredith/Chris Jordan, Murugan Ashwin, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Shami

CSK will open with Ruturaj and Faf du Plessis or Rayudu. Raina will bat at no. 4 if Rayudu opens. We will see Ali up in the order if spinners are bowling.

Dhoni, Jadeja will bat later, Sam Curran can also open the innings. Bravo, Shardul, Deepak will be the fast bowlers.

Eyes will be on Sam Curran to deliver in the coming up match OF PKBS vs CSK
