Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings will play in the 53rd match of IPL 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. We will cover CSK vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.
Chennai Super Kings:
Chennai Super Kings have lost two matches in a row and dropped to 2nd position on the points table with 18 points.
One of the best opening pairs, Ruturaj and du Plessis, failed after many matches in the last game. At No.3, Uthappa played his first match of the season but did not score much. Even Moeen Ali has been silent with the bat in the recent games.
In the middle-order, Rayudu batted brilliantly scoring a fifty but Dhoni struggled to score even run a ball. The bowlers did a fantastic job and almost won the game for CSK. Shardul showed his consistency by picking up two wickets and Jadeja also managed to get two scalps. The remaining bowlers got one wicket each.
There is a chance that they might lose the 2nd spot if they get defeated against Punjab Kings.
Punjab Kings are currently in the 6th position in the IPL 2021 Standings as they have won five out of the 13 matches with 10 points.
Skipper Rahul has been one of the significant contributors with the bat this season, and Mayank Agarwal has also supported him. But the remaining batsmen have failed consistently and let down the team on many occasions. In the middle, Aiden Markram showed some consistency, and Sharukh Khan displayed his potential to be a good finisher in the future.
The bowlers were the match-winners in most of the games. The experienced bowler Shami is the leading wicket-taker of the team this season, and youngster Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep Singh picked up crucial wickets throughout the season. In the last match, Henriques picked up three wickets.
Punjab Kings have the slightest chance of qualifying for the playoffs if they win the match against CSK considerably.
