Chennai Super Kings have developed their own blueprint to dominate visiting teams this season. Without getting into a hitting frenzy during the powerplay, they set out to build a proper base. Their skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad has been in a commendable form this IPL season. He has constantly performed well and helped the team score a decent yet challenging score for the opponents. While Shivam Dube has continued on his merry ways with the bat in the tournament. After an off-game against LSG, CSK bowlers bounced back with a bang to complete a crushing 78-run win over SRH.

On the other hand, Punjab Kings, having lost four of their five matches, braved all odds to put on a scintillating batting display to track down KKR’s humongous target with more than an over to spare. Shashank Singh’s impressive consistency has encouraged the team management to send him up the order, and the swashbuckling batter grabbed the opportunity with both hands with a quickfire cameo. Englishman Johnny Bairstow’s tormenting run with the bat was over, and he roared back to form with a brilliant century to get his team over the line in a chase of epic proportions. However, the PBKS bowlers had a disappointing night earlier at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata and will expect a better show in this game.
