Chennai Super Kings

Though CSK have qualified for the playoffs, they have been edgy in the last few games. Touted as one of the strongest teams in IPL 2018, faced a massive defeat against Delhi Daredevils. In their next match against KXIP, they will play to rectify their shortcomings and boost their confidence. It is high time Suresh Raina and Sam Billings regain their form. CSK’s bowling unit looks pretty strong, but still falters at the death. Imran Tahir could come in place of Harbhajan Singh


KL Rahul has proven to be the key player for KXIP. When the rest of the batting lineup falters, his fiery shots are consistent. Middle order batting has been KXIP’s major reason for concern. Aaron Finch played a decent game against Mumbai. KXIP will think about promoting Yuvaraj Singh up the order. Marcus Stoinis, Karun Nair Manoj Tiwary and Mayank Agarwal need to shoulder their responsibility properly. Mujeeb ur Rahman’s injury has also affected Punjab. Except for Andrew Tye and R Ahswin, KXIP’s bowling unit are also irresolute.
