Chennai Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab – Team News

Chennai have a few decision to make for their line-up. They could give the old guard one last go, especially if they are thinking about a rebuild before next year.

That could see Shane Watson return to the top of the order alongside Faf du Plessis.

However, another option for Dhoni is that he hands a few inexperienced players some more game-time with one eye on 2021. This looks the most likely option with Ruturaj Gaikwad to stay at the top.

If Mayank Agarwal gets fit then it is likely he will partner KL Rahul at the top of the order for KXIP.

That will mean Chris Gayle once operating at number three. Mandeep Singh showed his ability and also gives captain Rahul more batting options along with Nicholas Pooran.

KXIP are unlikely to stray too far from the bowling attack that has performed so well in recent matches. Chris Jordan should keep his place.

Chennai Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab – Betting Tips and Prediction

Kings XI look a different team with Chris Gayle fit and firing. Preference goes to them in the outright winner market.

However, this looks like it could be a close contest against a Chennai side playing without pressure.

With that in mind, looking at other markets is a good way of finding some value.

Back Gaikwad to Star with the Bat

Raturaj Gaikwad hit a superb 72 for CSK against Kolkata and can continue that form in this fixture.

That knock should be enough for him to keep his place at the top of the order and make him a good selection in the top Chennai batsman market.

His price is of 3.74 with 22Bet looks appealing.

KL Rahul to Top Score for KXIP

KL Rahul has had a brilliant IPL. He sits at the top of the Orange Cap table and can continue to add to that tally.

He fell just short of another half-century against Rajasthan. While another spectacular knock from Chris Gayle again took the headlines, KL looks a good bet given his consistency.

He can be backed at 3.3 with 22Bet to be KXIP’s top batsman.

Chahar to be Top Bowler

Deepak Chahar looks a good bet in the top Chennai bowler market.

He took two wickets against RCB after another solid showing but it is his last performance at this ground that stands out. The 2-18 he managed against Rajasthan in Abu Dhabi last time is worth noting.

He can be backed at 4.32 to be his team’s top wicket-taker with 22Bet.
