The eighth match of the Indian Premier League 2021 will be played between Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings.
Punjab Kings began their IPL campaign by defeating Rajasthan Royals in a closely contested game. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals handed a crushing defeat to Chennai Super Kings.
CSK has a very deep batting unit filled with firepower, and given how Suresh Raina has gone about things so far, they are a force to be reckoned with in this format. But their bowling attack lacks a genuine wicket-taker in the middle overs.
Punjab Kings got off to the perfect start in IPL 2021 with a close win over the Rajasthan Royals. While their batting unit did come up with the goods earlier in the week, the bowlers were a touch wayward in their lines and lengths. Middle over bowling seems to be a bit of concern for Punjab Kings which Chennai can exploit very well having a solid middle-order.
Chennai Super KIngs
South African pacer Lungi Ngidi is likely to be available for selection for Chennai Super Kings.
