Team Preview

Punjab

Punjab were bowled out for 115 runs against DC Wednesday night, the lowest total in the Indian T20 League thus far. So far, their major run scorers have been Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, and Liam Livingstone. Jitesh and Shahrukh Khan have been scoring fast but have been inconsistent so far. Johnny Bairstow is set for a huge knock, and Jitesh and Shahrukh Khan have been scoring rapidly but have been little uneven so far.

DC bats blew their bowlers away, scoring 119 runs in only 10.3 overs. Kagiso Rabada has been their pacesetter, with Vaibhav Arora and Arshdeep Singh providing support. Rahul Chahar has been outstanding with the ball, taking ten wickets, but the team needs a spinner on the other end. Odean Smith will be replaced by Nathan Ellis in the starting XI.

Chennai

Chennai lost two fast wickets before a great partnership between Robin Uthappa (30 runs) and Ambati Rayudu (40 runs) stabilised the chase. Their middle order lost 2-3 wickets, and they required 48 runs off the final four overs, with Dwaine Pretorius (22 runs) and MSD (28* runs) bringing their team home on the very last ball.

Mukesh Chowdary, the team’s pacer, returned the confidence by taking the top three wickets of the opposition in his first two overs. In the middle overs, spinners Mahesh Theekshana and Mitchell Santner took key wickets, with veteran Bravo collecting two. With their all-round ability, Ravi Jadeja and Dwaine Pretorius offer value to their bowling assault.

Pitch Report & Conditions

Wankhede Stadium’s batting surface has always been favourable. The track has a consistent bounce, and the shorter boundaries make the hitters’ work even simpler. There will be a lot of dew, so after winning the toss, both sides will prefer to bowl first. Wankhede Stadium is known for its high-scoring games because to its lightning-fast outfield.

On matchday, the temperature is forecast to be approximately 32-34°C, with 57-60% humidity and a wind speed of 11-14 km/hr. During the game, there are no possibilities of rain.
