Chennai Tremendous Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar


Rahul: We did nicely within the final recreation and we must always try to assess the pitch and put some runs on the board. Pitch seems good. When any set batter is batting it’s powerful to manage and I attempt to encourage my bowlers and even when they go for runs it is okay. Supporting them and backing them is admittedly necessary. No adjustments for us. We’re going with the identical crew.

Dhoni: We’ll bowl first. Cricket is a psychological recreation and adaptableness is a key issue. Total, it is extra a psychological recreation than the bodily side. (The pitch) seems a bit cheesy. There is a bit extra grass. Little bit of dew settles down a bit within the second innings as nicely. The primary few overs are actually essential. We’re enjoying the identical crew.


MS Dhoni has gained the toss and elected to area.

“Now we have a recent pitch for immediately’s recreation. There’s a good, inexperienced tinge. I believe it is going to be a very good floor. It could not have as a lot seam motion. What now we have seen within the final recreation right here is nice abilities from the pacers. The dew begins to fall within the back-end of the competition and yorkers must are available in large time in case you are a bowling aspect,” reckons Ian Bishop.

Having earned a win in a last-ball thriller, one thing that Ok.L. Rahul’s outfit didn’t do constantly within the latter half of IPL 2020, Punjab Kings will return to Wankhede Stadium as a way more assured unit in opposition to Chennai Tremendous Kings immediately.

The Tremendous Kings might be eager on getting their act collectively to open the account. The aspect must get the mixture proper to realize the specified outcomes. However Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s males might be removed from fielding the best mixture, with tempo duo of Lungi Ngidi and Jason Behrendorff lacking out resulting from obligatory quarantine interval after journey.

Will probably be fascinating to see if the Tremendous Kings accommodate Imran Tahir, the veteran leggie, to bolster the bowling division. The shortage of wicket-taking choices, particularly with the dew on the Wankhede Stadium making life tough for finger spinners, was one of many important features of CSK’s incapacity to defend a complete of 188 in its opener in opposition to Delhi Capitals.

Punjab Kings, regardless of beginning the event with a slender win in opposition to Rajasthan Royals, might be hoping that its new signings – Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith – will adapt to bowling with a moist ball after conceding 104 runs off their eight overs mixed.
