KXIP vs CSK Match Prediction & Analysis

We have a bottom of the table clash in IPL 2020 to look forward to next as Kings XI Punjab takes on the Chennai Super Kings.Both the teams have played four matches and lost three out of them. It is fair to say, we think that the Kings XI team has batted better than CSK but been on the receiving end of some incredible batting.

Still, a loss is a loss and both teams would now be desperate to turn things around. We think there are a lot of changes that both teams need to make and time is running out to get things right.

We have seen in the past that teams need a minimum of 8-9 victories to be able to qualify. That means at least seven wins out of their remaining ten matches to give them a chance.

KXIP vs CSK IPL 2020 is going to be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on the 4th of October 2020.

Team Previews

Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI suffered a comprehensive defeat to MI in the previous match. It was the worst we have seen them play and that defeat showed some big problems in their current team composition.

The biggest weakness is their death bowling. Kings XI has already conceded 30 runs in the last over to DC, 30 in one crucial over to RR, and 29 against MI. There is no way that a team can continue to give away so many runs at the death and win consistently.

Ideally, Kings XI would want to include Chris Jordan or Mujeeb ur Rehman in their lineup in place of Jimmy Neesham. We think that is an expected move. Can Kings XI continue to leave out Chris Gayle? Maybe they can because Mayank Aggarwal and Lokesh Rahul are batting so well at the top of the order.

Karun Nair and K Gowtham are two more players that are going to struggle to keep their places in the playing eleven. We expect Mandeep Singh and maybe Arshdeep Singh to make an entry into the playing eleven as well.

Glenn Maxwell played one of the worst innings that he has probably ever played in the IPL. he was rusty and could not strike the ball but we think he should be persisted with. A man with his six-hitting ability can turn things around in the matter of a game.

L Rahul and Mayank Aggarwal have to continue to score runs. Rahul seems to have started being more circumspect at the start which hurts his team. If Kings Xi can promote Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Maxwell to one position in the lineup and then add some bowling strength, they could be a much better team than they have so far been.

Chennai Super Kings

It has been painful to watch CSK this season. It is a team of players that are past their best and trying to play T20 cricket like it was in the past. The absence of their home conditions, where they are at their best, has forced them to play differently and on the basis of what we have seen so far, CSK has struggled.

This could well be the season where we see CSK lose its iron grip on the IPL.

With the batting that CSK has, they are going to struggle chasing down any significant target. Shane Watson is out of form, MS Dhoni is not striking the ball as cleanly as could at his best, and even Ravindra Jadeja is struggling.

Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayadu seem to be the two batsmen that can help CSK get the needed runs. Maybe pushing Sam Curran up consistently is something that CSK can try as well.

The tactics for CSK have been too predictable in most of the matches. Teams are being able to plan against them way too easily. A bowling lineup of Deepak Chahar, Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, and Piyush Chawal is not threatening in these conditions at all.

The fast bowlers do not have the pace to be able to win consistently whiler the spinners just have not found out the kind of form they need to be able to be effective.

Dhoni is struggling with one hand tied behind his back.

KXIP vs CSK Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss may want to bat first. There have been seven matches played in Dubai and all of them have been won by the team batting first. Surely, teams are not going to be able to ignore this stat any longer.

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

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Dubai have been quite good for batting. Both the high-scoring super-overs have been played in Dubai. CSK was unable to chase down 165 in the previous match against SRH and that is a concerning sign. We thought SRH left at least 20 runs on the table but even that was enough against CSK.

The second match in two days could bring down the average scores. Interestingly, there was some swing on offer with the new ball for both Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar. If that is the case then the bowlers could have more impact than in previous matches.

A score of around 180 seems to be par for the venue.

KXIP vs CSK Betting Tips

We think that KXIP has an excellent chance of winning this match against CSK. The foundation of the KXIP team is stable and the changes needed to take it to the next level are not too difficult. The form of Mayank Aggarwal and Lokesh Rahul is a big plus while Nicholas Pooran looked to be getting into his stride as well.

Bet on the Kings XI Punjab team to win.

Our Favorite Bets

  1. Betway


    Highest Opening Partnership

    KXIP ($1.72)


The best opening partnership so far this season has been between Lokesh Rahul and Mayank Aggarwal. To pit them up against the struggling duo of Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis is a no-brainer. We think the rate of 1.72 is very generous and this is a good bet for anyone to make.

  1. ComeOn


    Highest Individual Score

    Over 66.5 ($1.86)


This is the kind of bet we like. Any player from any team could have a good game and get past the individual score of 66. That is enough to get us the win. A look at the batting talent on both teams shows just how good an offer this is. Mayank Aggarwal, Lokesh Rahul, Amabati Rayadu and Faf du Plessis have all got individual scores over 66 in IPL 2020 already.

  1. 10Cric


    Total Sixes KXIP

    Over 5.5 ($1.83)


This is another great bet that you should not miss out on. The number of sixes we have seen in IPL 2020 is mind-boggling. With 27 sixes in the four matches played so far, KXIP is striking close to seven sixes every match on average.

This is even before Glenn Maxwell has hit form. Take this bet and enjoy every hit that goes over the line.
