Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai Super Kings come into this game off the back of two defeats. They occupy second spot on the Indian Premier League table and will be keen on getting back to the top.

CSK's previous encounter against Delhi Capitals was a top of the table thriller. Batting first, they struggled for any sort of momentum. Ambati Rayudu (55) was the only batter with any sort of fluidity as the men in yellow limped to a meagre 136-5 in their 20 overs. 

In the field, the Super Kings defended every run with their lives. Shardul Thakur was the pick of the bowlers with 2-13, which ensured the match went down to the wire. It was the Capitals who held their nerve however, claiming a three wicket victory.

Chennai Super Kings will want to finish top of the table. Therefore no changes are expected.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab Kings have lost three of their last five fixtures. They occupy sixth place on the table. A playoff spot is still a possibility but they will have to take the points in this match.

The Kings last outing against the Royal Challengers Bangalore was a nail-biter. Australia's Moises Henriques bowled superbly, taking 3-12 to ensure the RCB only reached 164 runs.

In the chase, a stunning opening partnership of 91 runs between KL Rahul (39) and Mayank Agarwal  (57) runs got the Punjab Kings off to a flying start. Thereafter the batsmen however struggled which saw the Kings fall six runs shy of their target.
