Chennai Super Kings

CSK are under a bit of pressure going into this game. Two losses to start IPL 2022 have made it harder than CSK is used to. However, not everything is doom and gloom. CSK scored 210 points in the previous game and batted very well. Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube and the entire middle class played a crucial role.

The only batsman to miss was Ruturaj Gaikwad, but it's only a matter of time before he gets going too. The real problem for CSK was bowling.

The spinners have found it very difficult to make any impact on the flat batting pitches we've seen so far and the fast bowling resources for CSK are very poor. Mukesh Chaudhary and Tushar Deshpande were the team's lead fast bowlers in the previous match.

This is a management failure at the auction, making the squad available pretty poor.

Getting Milne back and maybe giving Hangagrekar a chance is the only solution for CSK. If CSK don't step up their bowling ahead of the game against the Punjab Kings, real hiding could ensue.

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings lost early wickets against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous game and ended up losing too many wickets. They've shown a lot of intent along the way, and we think we can expect a few games where such an approach backfires.

On paper PBKS has a very solid batting lineup. Mayank Aggarwal and Shikhar Dhawan form the opening pair, followed by the hugely impressive Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Liam Livingstone and the big hitters. Raj Bawa has found life in the IPL a bit difficult and there are still some question marks over the temperaments of Shahrukh Khan and Odean Smith.

PBKS hasn't had many runs from its opening duo so far and Liam Livingstone is also lacking runs in the IPL. The batting lineup has a lot of potential but hasn't been able to deliver it so far. As a bettor, you should be wary of how much you trust what a team can do rather than what they actually do.

The bowling attack for PBKS is led by Kagiso Rabada. The South African pacesetter has had a brilliant season in the IPL over the past couple of seasons and there's no reason to expect anything different from him this time. Backup bowling is once again a bit questionable.

Odean Smith is a dangerous hitter, but his bowling is ordinary and can get quite expensive. Arshdeep Singh didn't have the success we've come to expect from him either. Again, this could be due to the better face that IPL 2022 will be played on.

Rahul Chahar is a great bowler, but Harpreet Brar isn't. PBKS also has a number of holes that it needs to plug.

Prediction

We're betting on the Chennai Super Kings to win. We believe they will strengthen their bowling lineup and be able to improve on their glaring weakness from the previous game. CSK also seems to have a more reliable batting roster than PBKS at the moment.

We bet on the Chennai Super Kings to win the match for 1.78.
