IPL 2020, CSK vs KXIP, Dream11: ‘Do or Die’ match for Punjab, ‘Dhoni & Company’ will fight for the honor
Kings XI Punjab, still intact in the play-off race, will have to register a good win against the Chennai Super Kings on Saturday, while Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a reputation for Chennai.
After defeating Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets, Punjab’s hopes have come as a shock. KL Rahul’s team won the playoffs by winning five consecutive matches. After this defeat, the future of Punjab is no longer in his hands.
Even after defeating Chennai, he will have to pray for favorable results in other matches. If Sunrisers Hyderabad (10 points from 12 matches) wins both the matches and the team winning the match between Delhi Capitals (14) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (14) will get 16 points then in such case depending on the points or net runners Even Punjab will not be able to qualify. If the Sunrisers lose a match, then there are hopes of Punjab qualifying provided they beat Chennai tomorrow. Punjab currently has 12 points from 13 matches and their net runner minus 0. Is 133.
On the other hand, Chennai, who were out of the playoff race for the first time, would like to bid farewell to victory. Dhoni’s team has won two consecutive matches against RCB and Kolkata Knight Riders. Captain Rahul has scored the most runs in the tournament for Punjab, while Chris Gayle is in superb form who would like to forget the pain of being dismissed for 99 runs tomorrow. At the same time, Nicholas Pooran has also performed well at number four. The situation is unclear about the play of Mayank Agarwal, who could not play the last three matches due to injury.
All the bowlers in Punjab, including Mohammad Shami, proved expensive against the Royals. They cannot commit such a mistake against Chennai. The 23-year-old Ruturaj Gaikwad has scored two consecutive half-centuries for Chennai. Ravindra Jadeja is also in superb form who played the finisher against KKR.
