Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings Predictions


The Punjab Kings were victorious in their first IPL match and should carry that momentum forward. The pitch will be flat in Mumbai again which will suit the Punjab Kings strong batting lineup. My best bet is a Punjab Kings win.

  • Punjab Kings’ KL Rahul was the 2020 IPL top run scorer.
  • Punjab Kings’ KL Rahul scored 91 runs in his last match.
  • Punjab Kings’ won their opening 2021 IPL match.
  • Chennai Super Kings’ Suresh Raina scored 54 runs in his last match.

The Chennai Super Kings have won four of their last five matches against the Punjab Kings. Last season, the Super Kings won their two matches against the Punjab Kings by nine and 10 wickets.

Punjab Kings Form


The Punjab Kings won their opening 2021 Indian Premier League match against the Rajasthan Royals in Mumbai. 

Batting first on a very flat pitch, KL Rahul led the way with 91 runs. Chris Gayle contributed 40 and Deepak Hooda 64 in a total of 221 runs.

The bowlers were less successful as the Royals came very close to a record run chase. Mohammad Shami was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2-33 in four overs.

The match went down to the final ball but the Punjab Kings held their nerve to win by four runs.

Punjab Kings Injuries & Team News


There are a few decisions to make for Punjab side. The batsmen performed well in victory but Riley Meredith and Jhye Richardson really struggled with the ball. This may offer up an opportunity for Chris Jordan to join the fray.

Chennai Super Kings Form


The Chennai Super Kings started their IPL campaign with a seven wicket defeat to the Delhi Capitals. After being sent in to bat first on a flat pitch at the Wankhede Stadium, the Super Kings got off to a poor start.

Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad were dismissed early but Moeen Ali (36) and Suresh Raina (54) steadied the ship. They reached a total of 188 runs by the end of their 20 overs.

The bowlers struggled to find the correct length for the Capitals batsmen thereafter. In the end the Capitals cruised to a seven wicket win with more than an over to spare.

Shardul Thakur took two wickets by went at just under 15 runs to the over. Dwayne Bravo bowled well, taking 1-28 in four overs but he will need more support against a very strong Punjab batting lineup.

The Super Kings won’t make hasty decisions after just one defeat. There are however options in the bowling department with Lungi Ngidi waiting for his opportunity.
