Chennai needs a win to make sure they can stay ahead of the pack in the race to the top four. Punjab are in the bottom three, but have been a far better side than what the table suggests. This could be an interesting match, but home conditions give the Super Kings an edge.

  • Chennai Super Kings have won 3 of their last 4 matches here against Punjab (IPL)
  • Punjab Kings have lost 4 of their last 5 matches (IPL)
  • Chennai Super Kings have conceded the most powerplay runs in 6 of their last 7 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


Chennai and Punjab have met 29 times so far, with Chennai winning 16 and losing 13. The last time these sides met was at this venue last year, when Punjab won by six wickets off the last ball. Chennai batted first to post 200 for 4. The chase by Punjab had its ups and downs, but eventually they won it off the last ball. Prabhsimran Singh scored an entertaining 42, while Liam Livingstone also had an energetic 40 to his name.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai Super Kings are third in the points tally with ten points from nine matches. Four of their five seasonal wins have come at this venue.

The hosts are coming off a comprehensive 78-run win at this venue over the Sunrisers Hyderabad. In an entertaining game, Ruturaj Gaikwad’s 98 helped the Super Kings to post 212 for 3. The chase was never on as wickets kept tumbling. Eventually, Hyderabad could only post 134 off 18.5 overs. Tushar Deshpande took four wickets to derail the chase.

Ruturaj Gaikwad (447) is their leading batter, having regained his consistent scoring touch. With the ball, Mustafizur Rahman (14) is still their best bowler.

Ajinkya Rahane and Daryl Mitchell are both unsettled, and one or both could be rested.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab Kings are third from the bottom of the points tally with three wins and six defeats. They have lost four of their last five matches.

The lone win in that sequence came in their last match, an eight-wicket win over Kolkata. In one of the highest chases in T20 cricket, Punjab aced the 261-run target with Jonny Bairstow smoking a scintillating century (108 off 48, unbeaten).

Punjab have three batters aggregating 200, led by Shashank Singh (263). Bowlers have collectively done well, with four bowlers taking at least ten wickets, led by Harshal Patel’s 14.

Shikhar Dhawan is still out, and the Kings also face a dilemma over their overseas composition. Rilee Rossouw could make way for Liam Livingstone.
