Punjab Kings will be squaring up against Chennai Super Kings in the eight match of IPL 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The match will commence on Friday, April 16 at 07:30 PM IST. Here is PK vs CSK Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
PK vs CSK Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Punjab Kings notched up a thrilling win against Rajasthan Royals in their opening game. PK posted a mammoth score of 221 on board and won the game by 4 runs. Skipper KL Rahul scored a fine 91 in 50 balls while Chris Gayle scored 40 off 28 balls to lay the foundation. It was Deepak Hooda though who pushed the score to its final destination. His 28 ball blitz shook RR and they could never really recover from that. Hooda smashed 64 and scored 6 sixes in his stay. PK’s death bowling came up trumps with the likes of Jhye Richardson, Riley Meredith, and Arshdeep Singh stepping up beautifully. They look in good shape compared to their rivals heading into this game.
Chennai Super Kings on the other hand stuttered in their opening game. Delhi Capitals defeated them comfortably at the same venue. They will be wary of PK’s batting lineup. Their spinning bowling was undone at the Wankhede. CSK have to be smart about their squad’s strength and use resources effectively. Their batsmen will face the daunting challenge of keeping up with PK’s explosive batting order. They have a huge task at their hands to overcome Punjab Kings.
