Chennai Super Kings: With two defeats in as many games, Chennai Super Kings have looked off colour this season. Their batsmen failed in the first game, while the second game saw a poor bowling effort as the reason for their loss. The absence of pacers Deepak Chahar and Adam Milne and death-over specialist Chris Jordan was felt as CSK used 7 bowlers in the previous game yet lost the it. However, the batting form of Robin Uthappa and former captain MS Dhoni would give the side some confidence.
Punjab Kings: With one win and one loss, PBKS’ journey in IPL 2022 has been a roller-coaster ride. While in the first game, they chased down a total of over 200 against Royal Challengers Banglaore, their batting unit failed to fire in their second game against Kolkata Knight Riders. What would worry them most is the form of Odean Smith as a bowler. He has leaked too many runs. Talking about the positives, Bhanuka Rajapaksa is looking in great touch.
Both the sides have played 25 matches against each other. CSK have won 15 of them, while the remaining 10 have been won by PBKS. In the most recent game between the sides, PBKS had defeated CSK by 6 wickets.
VENUE AND PITCH
The CSK vs PBKS match will take place at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. Two matches have taken place at the venue and the teams batting second have won the game. Given the match on Sunday will take place at night, dew will also be a big factor which means opting to bowl first would be preferred by the team that wins the toss.
