KXIP vs CSK Today Match Prediction Team News :
Kings XI Punjab have only one win from four matches but their performance has been good as they lost one match in super over and the other in the last over but still they need big improvements in a few areas like their middle order is crumbling and it puts extra pressure on openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal who have been excellent so far. Pooran, Maxwell and Karun Nair need to step up with bat and have to finish innings well. In bowling they need a death overs bowler so may try Chris Jordan in place of Jimmy Neesham who has been poor so far.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings after a win in their first match just fell flat and the main reason behind it is their batting as Shane Watson is struggling for runs and other batsmen are also not scoring at a good rate and to resolve all these issues they should try Sam Curran in opening who has batted well so far but his good form is a waste if he gets to face only 5-6 balls in a match. And captain MS Dhoni too can promote himself to number 4 or 5 and someone like Jadeja or Bravo can be used as a pinch hitter. In the bowling they need to take wickets with new ball and this job should be done by Sam Curran and Deepak Chahar. In the middle overs Piyush Chawla, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo have to control runs flow.

1. Kings XI Punjab is sitting at 7th place with 2 points from 4 matches in the points table.
