KXIP vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings will meet today knowing the fact that they have to start winning being at the No. 7 and No. 8 position in the league currently winning only 1 out of the 4 matches they have played. Their points are same but their journey isn’t! KXIP have played well and lost two matches from winning positions but the same can’t be said about MS Dhoni’s CSK who have played bad cricket and deserve to be at the bottom of the table. There are visible mistakes that the two teams are making, KXIP are playing too many batsmen which means their bowling is one of the weakest, while CSK have been playing negative cricket when it comes to batting and that’s costing them the matches. Having said that, the fact that the two teams who are so desperate to win the confidence of their fans back are meeting, makes for an exciting battle.

Kings XI have already played three matches at this venue which means they know the conditions quite well and that could work in their favor. Today's Match Predictions.
Team News KXIP: Kings XI looked two bowlers short in their match against Mumbai Indians and expect them to make changes there. Chris Jordan can come in considering their horror in the death overs. Mujeeb ul Rahman is yet to play a game too.
Team News CSK: Chennai like backing their players and that’s exactly what their head coach Stephen Fleming did announcing that they have full confidence in out-of-form Shane Watson and Kedar Jadhav. Imran Tahir is also waiting for his first chance to play. Dream 11 Predicted Playing 11.

KXIP vs CSK Dream11 Tips
Mayank Agarwal: He has been the best batsman for KXIP and we have no problems saying that knowing that KL Rahul is also playing brilliantly. But the difference between Mayank and Rahul is that it is the job of Mayank to take all the risks while Rahul does the innings-building job. Even then Mayank has so many runs to his name, also his strike-rate will earn you extra points.
Batting: 1512 Runs
Strike Rate: 133
Faf du Plessis: Chennai may have struggled with the bat but Faf is only struggling with scoring at a good pace in the early stages of his innings as scoring runs is not a problem for you. And in Fantasy League it doesn’t matter how you start your innings as long as you finish it well. Making him a superb choice for captain.
Batting: 2048 Runs
Strike Rate: 128
KL Rahul: The Punjab captain is leading his side from the front when it comes to batting even if he is missing the plot when it comes to team combination. Rahul has been rock-solid in batting and sometime gives the feel that he just can’t get out. Plus, there is extra points for the taking with gloves.
Batting: 2216 Runs
Strike Rate: 139
Sam Curran: The English all-rounder is doing brilliantly with both bat and bowl and has emerged as CSK’s most exciting player so far. Yes, his one over in the game against SRH went for plenty, but barring that he has been pin-point. With the bat, he smashes from first ball and CSK must find a way to give him more batting time.
Batting: 146 Runs
Strike Rate: 197
Mohammad Shami: The Indian pace spearhead is showing his worth for KXIP. He has been fantastic with the new ball and is challenging batsmen with Test-match like bowling. He is in the running for Purple Cap and would be targeting both the outside and inside edge of CSK openers.
Dwayne Bravo: It was good to see Bravo make a comeback into the squad even if they ended on the losing side. Bravo is a delight to Fantasy Players as he bowls in the death overs meaning chances for wickets and also bats in the death overs meaning good strike-rate.
Batting: 1483 Runs
Strike Rate: 128
Dream11 Most Affordable Players
Ravi Bishnoi (Credits 8): The young leg-spinner has been good for KXIP and the confidence with which he bowls is great to see. CSK have had problems rotating the strike against spinners and Bishnoi will be looking to exploit that.
Kedar Jadhav (Credits 8): CSK management are putting a lot of faith in Jadhav and he will be eager to prove them right. Jadhav is getting consistent opportunities to bat and he will know that this might be do-or-die match for him which can make him a threat.
