About the Match

Chennai Super Kings and the Kings XI Punjab team have been two of the best teams in IPL 2019. They have both won three out of the four matches they have played and shown an ability to succeed despite having some clear weaknesses. This match is going to be very interesting for a couple of reasons.

Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings are two teams that are returning very similar results despite being run in very different ways. Ravi Ashwin loves to make changes to his side and play mind games while MS Dhoni is all about consistency. You never know what tactics you are going to get with Ashwin while Dhoni starts off in a predictable manner and then adapts during the match.

CSK comes into this match suffering a heavy loss against the Mumbai Indians while Kings XI Punjab sparked a dramatic collapse to win a game that was all but lost against Delhi Capitals. CSK vs KXIP IPL 2019 in Chennai promises to be a game to remember.

Match Preview

Chennai Super Kings

MS Dhoni and his men were beaten easily by Mumbai Indians in the previous match. It was a game that exposed some weaknesses in the CSK side. Dhoni’s bowling plans are becoming predictable and CSK’s batting strength needs to be addressed.

Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur have been bowling well for Chennai and the same can be said about Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja. Dwayne Bravo has been lucky to get the wickets he has had so far and his death bowling was exposed during the previous match.

We don’t think CSK is going to change too many things with the CSK bowling attack going into this game. They are back at their stronghold in Chennai where the conditions suit them perfectly. If anything, we could see one of Mitchell Santner or Harbhajan Singh return into the side to bolster the spin bowling resources.

However, every team in the IPL now knows that Dhoni is going to bowl Chahar for four overs straight before turning the game over to his spinners and then getting Bravo at the death. Kings XI may want to throw a wrench in this plan and see how Dhoni responds.

The batting for CSK is troubling. Amabati Rayadu and Shane Watson have been quite poor. Suresh Raina, Kedar Jadhav, and MS Dhoni have been good in patches but quite poor in others. With just Jadeja and Bravo to follow, CSK is missing the power in its lineup that most other IPL teams have.

We would love to see Faf du Plessis get a game instead of Rayadu and strengthen the batting but changes in the CSK side are hard to come by.

Chennai Super Kings Starting Lineup

SR Watson, Faf du Plessis, SK Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Scott Kuggeleijn, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir.


Kings XI Punjab

Ravi Ashwin came into the limelight while playing with CSK. Chennai is his home and returning there is going to be an emotional experience for him, no doubt. We are certain that Ashwin is going to change his team around to try and get the best players for the job in his side. After all, Chris Gayle was dropped for the last match while being in terrific form. These changes can sometimes backfire, though. Kings XI was very lucky to have won that last game against Delhi and everyone in the camp will know that.

To fit Gayle back in the side Ashwin will have to drop Sam Curran, Mujeeb ur Rahman, or Hardus Viljoen. We don’t think David Miller is going to be removed from the side. The only options appear to be Sam Curran or just not playing Gayle for another match.

Punjab’s batting was not too good in the last match. The middle order of Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, and Mandeep Singh played a useful hand but the side would expect more from its top-order in this match.

Ashwin knows the conditions in Chennai very well and he is going to load his side with spinners. Ravi Ashwin, Murugan Ashwin, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Varun Chakravarthy are the options that Kings XI has to choose from.

We can see Gayle coming back into the side in place of Mujeeb and Varun Chakravarthy getting another chance. One thing that Kings XI has on its side is that it has a couple of batsmen very good against spin. Mayank Aggarwal, Mandeep Singh, David Miller, and Sarfaraz Khan have all shown themselves to be extremely adept against spin. They could lead Kings XI to a competitive total.

Kings XI Punjab Starting Lineup

Lokesh Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, M Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin, AJ Tye, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami.

Toss Prediction

The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat first. This is a day match and so dew is not going to be a factor. The pitch could take more turn in the second half of the inning and make run-scoring more difficult.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

CSK vs KXIP IPL 2019 is going to be played at the MS Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. There is no chance of rain on match day according to the weather department. Humidity is going to be high but since this is a day match, that should not be too much of a factor either.

The pitch in Chennai is slow and offers help to the spinners. It played better than expected for the batsmen in the previous match here but we definitely expect some more help to the slower bowlers this time around.

A score of 160 is going to be very hard to chase down.

Dream11 Prediction

Chennai has been very good for the spinners up until now so we are focussing on the best spinners as well as batsmen that play spin-bowling well for this match.

Wicketkeeper: The options here are between Lokesh Rahul and MS Dhoni, We have decided to go with MS Dhoni in this one even though his last batting performance was quite poor. Dhoni is a good player of spin and although he bats a bit low down for our liking, has shown the ability to navigate this tricky surface well.

Batsmen: We have picked Suresh Raina, Mayank Aggarwal, David Miller, and Kedar Jadhav as the batsmen. All of these batsmen bat in the top-order and play spin well. Suresh Raina is someone we believe is close to making a big score. he loves playing in Chennai and has looked in good rhythm as well.

All-Rounders: Bowling all-rounders is the way to go here in our opinion. We have picked Ravi Ashwin, Dwayne Bravo, and Ravindra Jadeja as three players available in this category. All three thrive on slow surfaces and should be among the wickets.

Bowlers: Imran Tahir has been the best spinner for Chennai by far. He keeps the runs down and picks wickets. Having him in the team is an easy decision. Similarly, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Murugan Ashwin get picked because of their ability to pick wickets and familiarity with the conditions.

Captain and Vice Captain: This is the most crucial aspect of the Dream 11 side. We have decided to make Imran Tahir our captain, hoping he can get a good wickets haul, and Suresh Raina our vice-captain.

    • MS Dhoni
  • Batsmen:
    • Suresh Raina (vc)

Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab Dream11 Prediction

Match Prediction

31 out of the 51 IPL matches played at the MA Chidambaram stadium have been won by the side batting first so winning the toss can be a big advantage. Chennai has won four out of the last five matches against Punjab as well. We think home conditions favor Chennai quite a lot and they should be able to win this match.

Back Chennai Super Kings to win.
