Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The defending champion CSK team will play its 5th IPL 2019 game in his home town. The team has earlier played four matches and have lost one game against Mumbai Indians. The team is just one position behind Kings XI Punjab which has claimed two victories and had lost one match.
CSK have relied on the team effort to win their matches as different players have stepped up at crunch situations in IPL 2019 so far. CSK’s only worry would be the form of opener Ambati Rayudu, who has struggled to get going after IPL 2018 success. The batsman is yet to make any effort this season so far to hit boundaries. Batsmen like Suresh Raina, Shane Watson and Kedar Jadhav will provide the right balance and will benefit the yellow army.
KXIP’s batting sensation Chris Gayle’s and other hard-hitting batsmen like KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal can take the lead in this game. Aswin will expect his bowlers to step up this time to get success against CSK. Being a competitive skipper on the field, R Ashwin as a captain like to experiment tactics against his home town match.
