Matchday 38 of the TATA Indian Premier League is here, and the cricketing world is all set for the games. Till now, the tournament has seen a lot of great games with impressive wins and unexpected defeats.
Furthermore, this year, surprisingly, the teams that were the favorites and had the fans expecting them to excel are nowhere near those expectations. Teams like Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, and Royal Challengers Bangalore are not performing well at all. Especially the Mumbai Indians, who have made a record in the Indian Premier League of losing seven consecutive matches in a row.
Today we will talk about the Chennai Super Kings side who are going against the Punjab Kings.
The Chennai Super Kings side has a good momentum going into this match after the nail-biting victory against the Mumbai Indians.
The Chennai Super Kings will clash against the Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium. Chennai comes into this match with a great momentum following the crucial win against the Mumbai Indians. Everyone performed well, but the spotlight came on Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He smashed 28 runs in 13 deliveries to help Chennai Super Kings grab this win against the Mumbai Indians. On the other hand, Punjab Kings got thrashed in their last match. They got all-out at 115 and lost the game to the other team, still having nine wickets left.
The strategy taken by Punjab Kings failed miserably in the match. The coaches are likely to make a change in the squad for this match.
Chennai Super Kings are flying as they won their last match splendidly. The bowling line-up looked dangerous, and the batting line-up delivered extensively. Chennai Super Kings will likely go into this match with the same squad expecting to put out excellent performances this time around as well.
The Wankhede Stadium pitch nowadays has begun to turn out favorable for the batters. The previous game on this pitch saw high-scoring action between the Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals. Furthermore, the fast bowlers are finding it challenging to produce good deliveries from this wicket, as the dew factor is coming into play. The team winning the toss should choose to bowl first by looking at the previous results on this wicket.
