The CSK vs PBKS IPL 2024 match will be played in Chennai on May 1, Wednesday. The two teams play back-to-back games facing each other next Sunday once again

CSK vs PBKS Team Analysis

Chennai Super Kings 

After losing back-to-back games against LSG, CSK returned to winning ways at home beating SRH by 74 runs. They posted 212 batting first and bowled out the opposition for just 134.

CSK have lost just one match at home and have found the formulae to make Chepauk their fortress. They are placed third on the points table with 10 points and have two games at home. Winning these two games at home will take them to qualification for the playoffs. 

Punjab Kings 

PBKS pulled off a record chase against KKR in their last match. However, they now face the litmus Test of beating CSK in their backyard. Only CSK has managed to do that this season.

PBKS needs to be consistent as a side and needs their spinners to step up in Chennai if they are to beat the Chennai Super Kings. Whether their batters can replicate their form will also be an interesting observation.

CSK vs PBKS Key Factors 

Pitch Conditions 

CSK posted 211 and bowled out SRH for 134 in the last game. The Chepauk track historically has assisted the spinners. In this year's IPL so far, there have been a few high-scoring matches at the venue. With two more home games remaining for CSK, the trend is expected to continue. 

Form and Fitness 

The form of the batters from both sides is top-notch, especially after two high-scoring games. It is spin and the quality of the bowling attack that is expected to make the difference in the match. 

Fitness-wise, there are still question marks over Shikhar Dhawan's potential return in the last match as he is struggling with a s shoulder niggle. For CSK, Deepak Chahr has missed a few games due to injury and has not looked his best since returning to the matches. 

Tactical Acumen

How the captains use their respective spinners will determine the result of the contest. CSK have better spinners than PBKS which might also be the deciding factor in the game. A certain MS Dhoni with his experience from behind the wickets can also be a massive difference between the two sides.

CSK vs PBKS Match Prediction– Who Will Win Today IPL Match? IPL 2024 Match 49

PBKS have won the previous four games against CSK. However, heading into this game with CSK playing at home and having won the last match clinically they have the edge in the contest. 


CSK are placed third heading into this game while PBKS is eighth. A win for CSK in this match will take them closer to qualification. PBKS will play back-to-back games against CSK and winning both will be tough.
