VIVO IPL 2018: Kings XI Punjab vs Chennai Super Kings T20 preview

Match preview:

Kings XI Punjab is set to face Chennai Super Kings at IS Bindra Stadium in T20 Premier League 2018. Ravichandran Ashwin led KXIP will be looking to bounce back from their last match defeat against RCB.

On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings have a 100% win record this T20 Premier League season. MS Dhoni will be hoping to maintain their perfect record. IS Bindra Stadium will host this match and it wouldn’t be a surprise if this is a high-scoring match.

This is going to be a epic contest as Dhoni’s disciple R Ashwin will go head-to-head against him.

Head-to-Head record:

Matches played – 16 (CSK has won 10 matches whereas KXIP is lagging far behind with 6 wins).

Players to be considered while picking your ProSportsLeague XI:

1. Do not pick Suresh Raina as he picked up an injury in the last match. One of Murali Vijay or Dhruv Shorey might play.

2. You can consider Shane Watson, Mujeeb Ur Rahman & KL Rahul.

3. Shardul Thakur can pick important wickets at important times. Mayank Agarwal hasn’t fired for a long time and this might be his day.

4. If you are looking for a keeper, you can pick both KL Rahul & MS Dhoni. Dhoni plays two down and you never know what he has in the bag for today’s match.

Prediction: 
We are going with a CSK win in this one. However, the fact that the chasing team has a clear advantage cannot be ignored.
