GT vs DC Dream11 Prediction

Punjab Kings are now having a new captain in the form of Mayank Agarwal, and they would be hoping to have a change of fortunes as well. The Punjab team is yet to win a title in IPL history so far and has failed miserably in the last few seasons. In 2014, PBKS reached the finals and after that, they have not qualified for the playoffs even once and have finished at the bottom of the points table twice.

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, has been performing pretty well since the inception of IPL. They have won the title a record four times, only behind Mumbai Indians, who have won it 5 times.

CSK won their fourth trophy last season while Punjab Kings ended sixth in the points table. However, things are different in IPL 2022, where Chennai Super Kings have lost both their first two games and are languishing at the 8th position.

In the recent fixture, CSK scored a massive 210 against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), but still, they lost the match by six wickets. Death bowling has been a major concern for the franchise. The lack of experience in death bowlers is what hurts them.

Punjab Kings have won against Royal Challengers Bangalore where they chased a target in excess of 200 but lost to Kolkata Knight Riders the other night where their batsmen failed miserably.

Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Players To Look Out For

Jonny Bairstow- The return of Jonny Bairstow should do wonders for the Punjab Kings’ team. With more strength now, they could pose a stern challenge to the Ravindra Jadeja-led team. Jonny Bairstow has joined the PBKS squad and he could replace Bhanuka Rajapaksa in the XI. If it happens, the Sri Lankan would consider himself unlucky because he’s done well in the top order. Jonny Bairstow could also replace either Liam Livingstone or Odean Smith.

Dwayne Bravo- Death bowling has been a major concern for the Chennai Super Kings franchise. The lack of experience in death bowlers is what hurts them.

Dwayne Bravo recently overtook Lasith Malinga to become the leading wicket-taker in Indian Premier League (IPL) history and will again spearhead the Chennai Super Kings‘ pace attack in the probable absence of Adam Milne and Chris Jordan who are both injured.
