CSK vs KXIP Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Chennai Super Kings will take on Kings XI Punjab in the 53rd match of the Indian Premier League. The match is scheduled to take place at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi and will take place at 10:00 PM local time.

With just few matches left in the group stages, teams are battling hard to find a place in the top 4. It’s strange that even after 52 games, every team, apart from Chennai, every team can make it through to the playoffs. Kings XI Punjab’s 5 match winning streak was halted by a ruthless Rajasthan unit, who in the process have kept their hopes alive. Punjab now face a very tricky situation where even a win might not secure a place in the playoffs. The fourth entrance in the playoffs will most probably decided by the nut run rate and Punjab need to pull off a big win to get their net run rate better than the other teams. Punjab’s tournament has been a mixture of two extremes/ First they lost 5 back to back matches in the first half of the tournament then bounced back to win their next 5. Punjab hasn’t played bad cricket, even in the matches they’ve lost. Against Rajasthan they posted a decent total of 185 but bowling second was always going to be difficult on this wicket. Chris Gayle scored a magnificent 99 against Rajasthan and KL Rahul, as we all know is in the form of his life. Other players haven’t got much opportunity with the bat but are capable enough to demolish any bowling line up. Punjab is heavily dependent on Mohammed Shami for the wickets but will need their other bowlers to step up to the occasion.

For Chennai, they’re already knocked out of the tournament but can play a spoilsport in Punjab’s campaign. After a horrible first half, Chennai have fared decently in the second half, winning 3 of the 6 matches they’ve played. They’re coming back from two consecutive victories and would be looking to end their tournament on a high. Ruturaj Gaikwad has been the biggest positive for CSK in the last two games. Ambati Rayudu too looked good in the previous game. Jadeja down the order have been magnificent with the bat. However, the middle order looks bleak in MS Dhoni and N Jagadeesan. Moreover, there is no clarity on whether Faf du Plessis will feature in the game or not. As a bowling unit, Chennai brought in Ngidi who responded with a couple of wickets. Deepak Chahar and Sam Curran have been good too. On paper Chennai is on par with Punjab but practically, KL Rahul’s team has a better chance of emerging victorious.

Chennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

The is no clear update on why Faf du Plessis didn’t featured in CSK's last game. MS Dhoni pointed about about an injury but we’re not sure if he was talking about Faf or anyone else. Even if Faf is available for selection for this game, we don’t think MS Dhoni will make any change to the playing XI.

CSK Key Players

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad – Ruturaj Gaikwad has emerged as a find for CSK in this season. He’s coming back from two back to back fifties and will hold the key for CSK at the top.
  • Ambati Rayudu – Ambati Rayudu has been on and off this season but is an integral part of this CSK set up. He'll be eager to end the tournament on a high.
  • Sam Curran – Sam Curran has given it all for CSK in the IPL 2020. He has been exceptional both with the bat and ball. He would want to finish of a successful season with a match winning performance.

CSK are coming back from two back to back victories.

Kings XI Punjab Team News & Playing 11

KXIP Team News

Even though Punjab lost their lost match to Rajasthan, they’ll not tinker much with the playing XI. They’re expected to step in with the same team.

KXIP Key Players 

  • KL Rahul: KL has been at his destructive best in the IPL 2020. 641 runs in 12 games speak the volume of his performance. He’ll be the key for Punjab if they’re to bag a valuable victory against CSK
  • Chris Gayle: Chris Gayle’s entry into the playing XI has spooked life in KXIP. Gayle played a blistering inning of 99 against Rajasthan and will be eager to back it up with another scintillating knock.
  • Mohammed Shami – Mohammed Shami has been spitting venom with his bowling in the tournament. His bowling is on to another level and he would be very difficult for CSK to get over. 

KXIP Team Form

After winning 5 consecutive matches, Punjab suffered a defeat to Rajasthan Royals in their last match.
