Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the 18th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019.
CSK will be looking to bounce back after the loss against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede. They had got off to a brilliant start with three wins in first three matches but were derailed by Mumbai. They will be looking to get back on track at home in Chepauk.
Their batting didn't click against MI and the middle overs is a concern. The middle order needs to find a way to up the ante. Ambati Rayudu's form has been a cause of worry and with the World Cup selection round the corner, he will be desperately looking for a big score. The fielding has been sloppy, so has been the death bowling. They need a lot of improvements in order to get past KXIP.
KXIP, on the other hand, are second in the table with three wins. They will be pumped up after a come-from-behind win against Delhi Capitals where they pulled off a spectacular win. They would hope that Chris Gayle is fit and KL Rahul gets back to his best. On the Chepauk track, expect Ashwin to play a spin-heavy side. Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ashwin himself and Murugun Ashwin will be the key assets going into the match.
We can expect a cracker.
