Chennai Super Kings rested all-rounder David Willey in their last game against the Delhi Daredevils and gave Lungi Ngidi a chance. The South African pace bowler grabbed the opportunity with both hands and returned impressive figures of 2-14 from his three overs. Skipper Dhoni will probably retain him for their final league-phase encounter against the Kings XI Punjab. So we expect the team to go in with an unchanged line-up.
Ambati Rayudu has had a good season with the bat. The opening batsman is among the leading run-scorers with 585 runs including a century and three fifties. His 29-ball 50 in the last game against the Delhi Daredevils went in vain though. MS Dhoni scored an unbeaten 79 in the reverse fixture at Mohali and the team will expect another quality knock from their skipper. Suresh Raina and Shane Watson have done well in patches but the Super Kings will want a little more out of them in this match. Shardul Thakur has been the pick of the bowlers and has taken the most wickets for CSK this IPL. Deepak Chahar has also been impressive while Dwayne Bravo will be the key man in the death overs.
Despite their heavy 34-run loss to the Delhi Daredevils in their last match, Chennai Super Kings have managed to hold on to the second spot in the IPL 2018 standings. With eight wins and five defeats from thirteen fixtures, CSK currently have 16 points in the bag and a win in their final game of the league round will surely secure them a top-two finish. They will be going into this game after having lost three of their last five encounters.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman is still recovering from his hand injury he had sustained during the game against the Kolkata Knight Riders. The Afghan off-spinner will be brought back if he is declared fit for this upcoming match against the Chennai Super Kings. In this case, Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis will probably be the one to make way for him in the playing eleven. Kings XI Punjab may also consider bringing back Karun Nair in place of Yuvraj Singh who has been underwhelming in this year’s IPL.
Lokesh Rahul is going through an incredible form and is the current orange cap holder with six half-centuries to his name. The opening batsman has four big knocks in the last five games and he, undoubtedly, holds the key to KXIP’s batting. His partner Chris Gayle has been misfiring in the past few matches and the team will hope that he comes good in this pressure game. Aaron Finch has finally started to get into the groove after being promoted up the order and he too will be a big threat to the opposition. KXIP’s bowling will rely largely on Andrew Tye who has the purple cap on his head with 24 wickets. The fast bowler has now notched up three four-wicket hauls and he claimed one last time against the Mumbai Indians. Ravichandran Ashwin will be the team’s next best option while Mujeeb Ur Rahman (if he plays) will also be the one to watch out for.
Kings XI Punjab find themselves in a very unpleasant situation after having lost their last four matches in a row. With six wins and seven losses and with 12 points from 13 league fixtures, KXIP are currently sixth on the IPL 2018 leaderboard and they must now ensure a win at all costs in their final league game versus the Chennai Super Kings at Pune. The win alone will not guarantee them a spot in the playoffs but the results of other matches would also have to go their way.
