KXIP vs CSK Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today IPL Match 4 October

KXIP vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Kings XI Punjab will lock horns with Chennai Super Kings today as both the teams are in serious need of some inspiration. Both teams are lingering at bottom of the points table currently after losing 3 of the first 4 matches in their campaign. The match will be played at Dubai under the lights. We will preview KXIP vs CSK Dream11 contest.

Kings XI Punjab had to face a convincing defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in the last match at Abu Dhabi. Bowling first, all the bowlers turned out to be very expansive against the powerful MI batting lineup. A bad day at the office for the bowlers was combined with some poor tactical decisions from KL Rahul as Krishnappa Gowtham had to bowl the last over against the likes of Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya. MI posted 191 on the board and the score looked above par for that surface. KXIP had a reasonable start with KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal but they lost wickets in cluster in the middle. Only Nicholas Pooran resisted with an innings of 44 as KXIP lost the match by 48 runs.

Almost similar pattern followed Chennai Super Kings when they took on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match. After strangling SRH to 69 for 4, they let young duo of Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma find their timing with a dazzling partnership of 77 runs. As a result of that, SRH put 164 on the board. In reply, CSK were always behind the eight ball after losing their 4 top order wickets for just 42 runs. MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja did very well in the end to take CSK close but fell short by 7 runs.

In head-to-head comparisons, Chennai Super Kings have enjoyed an upper hand against Kings XI Punjab over the history. CSK have won 13 matches compared to 9 of KXIP in 22 matches played between them. In last 5 matches as well, CSK do have a lead of 3-2. Kings XI Punjab chased down 205 when both teams met in UAE last time thanks to a Maxwell special.

Pitch and Conditions

The match will played on a fresh strip at Dubai. Pitches here have offered an equal competition between bat and ball in the matches played so far. Boundaries are also of reasonable sizes, so spinners will come into play here without a doubt. Dew is likely to change things significantly in the second innings due to a major difference in temperatures.

  • KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been the most in-form opening pair of the competition and both have good memories of playing at Dubai.
  • KXIP middle order can be a headache if Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Maxwell don't contribute consistently as Indian core of Karun Nair, Sarfaraz Khan and Krishnappa Gowtham are yet to fire.
  • James Neesham's place will be under threat if team management decides to go with Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Mohammed Shami and Sheldon Cottrell will be their fast bowlers while young Ravi Bishnoi will continue to find his place in KXIP vs CSK Dream11 prediction.

Chennai Super Kings Team News

  • Chennai Super Kings have struggled to find their best playing XI yet.
  • Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis opened for them in the last match but it will be interesting to see how long they persist with Shane Watson.
  • Ambati Rayudu and Kedar Jadhav will be their middle order options while lower middle order of MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Sam Curran have done a decent job in last couple of games.
  • Dwayne Bravo came back in the last match and bowled well along with Deepak Chahar. If they decide to change their overseas combination, then Shardul Thakur will sit out. Piyush Chawla will remain their only specialist spinner in the XI.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • KL Rahul will be in demand for the captaincy position today. He has scored 239 runs so far and is at second place for the competition of orange cap this year. He likes CSK and has scored productively against them in the past.
  • Mayank Agarwal is another great option from KXIP. This Karnataka batsman is at the top in terms of runs scored this year. He will be looking to continue his good run today as well.
  • Faf du Plessis has the highest runs for CSK so far and looks an obvious choice today. He can pace his innings to the perfection according to situations and consistency is his main strength in terms of fantasy potential.

For Grand Leagues

  • Nicholas Pooran is a tempting option for the grand leagues today. He batted well for a short while in the chase against Mumbai Indians in the last match. He will have a couple of CSK spinners turning into him today and that's a good advantage to have in these sluggish conditions.
  • Sam Curran has done everything that the team management has asked from him so far. He has picked up wickets without giving away too many and also played some cameos. Whether think tank decides to give him a go at the top or not, he is a good option for the grand leagues.
  • MS Dhoni made unbeaten 47 in the last innings against SRH while chasing a difficult task at the same venue. Apart from that, he is having a very good record against KXIP with 595 runs at an average of 54.09. His wicket-keeping points will always add to your total.

Who will win KXIP vs CSK Today Match Prediction?

As per our Today Match Predictions, Kings XI Punjab are slight favourites to win against Chennai Super Kings. CSK are struggling in almost every department while KXIP top order can take attack to the opposition if they survive an opening burst of Deepak Chahar. All in all, KXIP should gather two points this evening if they play to their potential.
