Punjab Kings are peaking at the right time having won the last two games. Everything has clicked beautifully for the side in the last two games. The leadership has been pinpointed and Jonny Bairstow has not allowed the team to feel the absence of Shikhar Dhawan at the top of the order. The batters did their job in the last two games and should look to keep up the form. The biggest plus for PBKS in the last match against CSK was Rahul Chahar's return to form.

On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings lost their last two games. The last defeat to Punjab Kings was their second straight loss at home. In the last three games they have lost two games and won one. They are still placed fourth on the table but there are a lot of loopholes in this team. The skipper is not winning tosses and losing the advantage early. He has scored runs with the bat but the rest of the batters have failed to back him up. Their bowling looks weak now with the recent injury to Deepak Chahar. Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali are not as consistent. In the final leg of the league stage, CSK have to get their combination right.
