Chennai Super Kings vs. Kings XI Punjab Match Prediction Tips | CHE vs PNJ Who will win Today Match
Match 56, IPL 2018
CSK vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction
Pune, May 20 at 08:00 PM IST
It has been a downward spiral for the KXIP, ever since they came off a week-long break, and have lost four matches on the bounce, to keep their spot in Playoffs in jeopardy. Apart from KL Rahul and Andrew Tye, virtually the entire team has been in lackluster form, and the over-dependence on the duo mentioned above is beginning to catch up with the team. KL Rahul scored a pristine 94 in the last match but ran out of support from the other batsmen as they eventually ended up three runs short. On the bowling front, Tye has been their most consistent performer, and he backed it up with 4-16 in the last match against MI. KXIP now head to Pune, in a bid to redeem their campaign and keep their chances alive of making it to the top four.
Their opponents, Chennai Super Kings, have made it to the playoffs and looking good to go the distance. They would like now to try to catch-up on the table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad. Going by their current form, we can see them add to their 2010 and 2011 trophies.
