- CSK have a 16-11 head-to-head lead over Punjab Kings.
- The Mayank Agarwal-led team has only three victories in seven games and is now ranked seventh.
- Ravindra Jadeja and his teammates are just one place ahead of the recently ousted Mumbai Indians (MI).
- CSK won the title last season, while PBKS ended seventh in the table.
The Punjab Kings will face the Chennai Super Kings in their upcoming match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Punjab was completely shattered in the last game as they were all out for just 115 runs and lost by nine wickets with more than nine overs to spare. The strategy of going into the game with six batters and five bowlers did not work out, and they will need to strengthen their batting lineup, which has been inconsistent at times. They are expected to make changes to their playing team and will hope to bring in Rajapaksa, who has shown good signs early.
The Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, beat the Mumbai Indians in their last game thanks to a spectacular finish from MS Dhoni, who turned back the clock. With the inclusion of Dwaine Pretorius, the bowling seemed to be in order, and Mukesh Choudhary was brilliant with the new ball. Therefore, they are expected to use the same lineup for the forthcoming match.
