PBKS vs CSK IPL 2022: Is Moeen Ali Playing Today?

While comparing his IPL 2021 performance, England all-rounder Moeen Ali has failed to deliver the goods this year for the Chennai Super Kings. After smashing a total of 357 runs last T20 season, Moeen has managed to score just 87 runs from 5 matches in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. This was the major reason that the Chennai Super Kings dropped him from the playing 11 during the last match against Mumbai Indians.

However, according to the recent reports, Moeen Ali has suffered an ankle injury and will miss the upcoming few games for Chennai Super Kings. The big-hitting all-rounder could have been a great attacking option against the Punjab Kings spinners who have the least impressive economy rate in IPL 2022 of 8.65.
