CSK vs KXIP Dream11 Team Prediction | 53rd Match | Dream11 IPL 2020

Chennai Super Kings will take on Kings XI Punjab in the 53rd Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will provide CSK vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Chennai Super Kings:

CSK after having a tough time this season have finally won two back to back matches but are still at the bottom of the points table with five wins and eight losses, and a total of 10 points.

The youngster Ruturaj Gaikwad who was out for a duck in two matches, has now hit two fifties in a row and has shown everyone that he has got a lot of talent. There are rumours that this might be the last season for Shane Watson in the IPL and that is why he got to play the final match.

At No.3, Rayudu has been doing an excellent job by scoring a fair amount of runs and reducing the pressure on the middle-order batsmen. MS Dhoni, known to finish the matches hasn’t been able to perform well and has looked out of form this season, but Ravindra Jadeja has batted brilliantly and played the role of finisher very well.

All-rounder Sam Curran has been brilliant throughout the season both with bat and ball. Deepak Chahar has looked back in form and bowling well by picking up wickets consistently in the powerplay. Lungi Ngidi bowled well in the last match and also controlled the flow of runs in the death overs.

Mitchell Santner has been playing for the past couple of matches has been performing decently and picking up wickets.

CSK has nothing to lose from this match, but if they win this, then they will be making a dent in the hopes of KXIP for qualifying for the playoffs.

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shane Watson/Faf du Plessis will open the inning for CSK.
  • The middle-order will comprise of Ambati Rayudu, N Jagadeesan, and skipper MS Dhoni.
  • All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, and Mitchell Santner will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Ravindra Jadeja, Karn Sharma, and Mitchell Santner will form the spin attack of the team.
  • Lungi Ngidi, Deepak Chahar, and Sam Curran will be the team’s pace attack.

Kings XI Punjab:

After five consecutive wins, Kings XI lost a match, but they are still in the race for playoffs as they are currently at the 4th position on the points table with six wins and seven losses and a total of 12 points.

Skipper KL Rahul and Universe Boss Chris Gayle have been in tremendous form this season and have contributed most of the runs for the team. If Mayank Agarwal gets fit, then their top-order will be even stronger. 

In the middle-order, Nicholas Pooran has been one of the best batsmen so far in this season with his ability to score runs quickly. Glenn Maxwell has been out of form with the bat, yet to hit a six so far this season. Deepak Hooda and Chris Jordan are also doing a decent job in the lower order.

The bowling department has also performed well this season for KXIP with players like Mohammad Shami, Chris Jordan, and Arshdeep Singh being in the pace attack of the team and have been picking up wickets consistently. The spin duo Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin have been brilliant in the middle overs as they have picked up wickets and at the same time controlled the flow of runs.

KXIP had lost their previous match, and because of that this will be a do or die game for them, and if they lose this match, then there are very high chances that they might be eliminated from the race for playoffs.

  • Skipper KL Rahul and Mandeep Singh/Mayank Agarwal will open the inning for KXIP.
  • The middle-order will comprise of Chris Gayle, N Pooran, and Glenn Maxwell.
  • Deepak Hooda and Chris Jordan will look after the lower middle order.
  • M Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, and Glenn Maxwell will be the spin attack of the team.
  • Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh, and Chris Jordan are the team’s pace bowling attack.
