Kings XI Punjab (KXIP vs CSK Dotball Team Prediction)
KXIP have been going through some rough patch in this season again. Last, season KXIP started off well but losing matches constantly led them out of the contention for making into the playoffs. This season KXIP have uprooted the history yet again, losing 4 out of their 5 games have almost led them on the verge of exit in IPL 2019.
Kings have majorly dependent on their openers i-e- Chris Gayle and KL Rahul, they will be the key players if KXIP has to turn the tables towards them, otherwise looking forward to the form of other players in the middle order it looks quite difficult to recover from the early setbacks if KXIP went through it.
The major reason behind the defeats of KXIP is that they have made an average of 3 changes in their team throughout the season and with lots of changes made in the team throughout the tournament.
Bowlers have been out of touch with the bowl for KXIP and less game time given to the bowlers is the other thing that has led to such performances made by the bowlers. Shami and R. Ashwin have been the pick out bowlers for KXIP who are taking wickets, no other bowler has taken the responsibility with the bowl to support them. Team has to come down in a group if they want some positive results in a do or die match.
Chennai Super Kings (KXIP vs CSK Dotball Team Prediction)
Chennai Super Kings have got through to playoffs and are certainly looking to cement their spot in top 2 teams, so they will look to take this game lightly under captain cool MS Dhoni.
Suresh Raina has started getting runs from his bat and scored a brilliant fifty in his last match. Kings will expect their openers i-e – Shane Watson and FAF Du Plessis should do well to get back into their form, as they know the playoffs are near.
Bowlers including Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, and Harbhajan Singh has been the icing on the cake for CSK in this season. This trio has taken some major chunks of wickets for Chennai Super Kings. It is their bowlers who have been the backbone of the team in this season.
