CSK vs KXIP IPL Dream11 Team Prediction 18 Crores Grand League Mega Contest, 1 November KXIP vs CSK Dream11 CSK vs KXIP playing 11 today match prediction

CSK vs KXIP Dream11: The 53rd match of the IPL 2020 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab. Chennai Super Kings are already out of the tournament but has the ability to spoil the chances of other teams. They did a big harm to the chances of KKR in the last game too. Their top order including Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu has performed well in the tournament but MS Dhoni’s poor form throughout the season has hurt the team’s chances. Surprisingly, Ravindra Jadeja has been the standout performer for them with the bat in the second half. They have lacked intensity with the ball throughout and that has allowed the opposition to run away. But Sam Curran has been outstanding so far with his ability to make things happen. CSK will look to end a disappointing tournament on a high note.

Kings XI Punjab’s streak of 5 wins in a row was finally broken in the last match by Rajasthan. They were looking down and out in the first half but came back strongly thereafter. Skipper KL Rahul has led the team from the front and is firmly holding the orange cap. The addition of Chris Gayle at the top order has brought some much needed strength to their line-up. Nicholas Pooran is looking in a great touch and has played some important match winning innings for his team. Despite conceding runs in the last over, the bowling looks in better shape with Mohammed Shami and Chris Jordan bowling some excellent overs at the death. KXIP needs to win this game at any cost in order to give themselves a chance to qualify.
