Heading onto the 8th day of IPL 2022, we see Chennai Super Kings facing off Punjab Kings tonight, at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
While Chennai is yet to taste a win this season, Kolkata Punjab succeeded in its initial match while losing the next. Yet, both the teams are fiery enough to make a good competition tonight.
Chennai’s got a bunch of hitters like Robin Uthappa, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, and Ambati Rayudu, while Punjab got Mayank Agarwal, Liam Livingstone, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa – all proved their hitting skills in previous matches.
And in terms of bowling, Punjab is guarded by Kagiso Rabada in pace and Rahul Chahar in spin departments. On the other hand, Chennai’s got Dwaine Pretorius, Dwayne Bravo, Jadeja, and Mitchell Santner.
With both teams equally balanced, here we see a list of players who make it onto the field today;
CSK vs PBKS Probable Playing 11 in IPL 2022
- Chennai Super Kings
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (c), Dwaine Pretorius, Mitchell Santner, Dwayne Bravo, KM Asif, Tushar Deshpande.
- Punjab Kings
Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (wk), Odean Smith, Shahrukh Khan, Prabhsimran Singh, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar.
Though Shivam Dube is good with both bat and ball, he was unfortunately regarded as the core reason for Chennai’s loss in their last match after leaking 25 runs in the critical 19th over. This may set him out from the team today, and be replaced by Mitchell Santner.
Also, Mukesh Choudhary resulted in a bad performance too, so CSK may bring in KM Asif for good. On the other hand, Punjab may replace Raj Bawa with Prabhsimran Singh, since Bawa failed to mark himself as reliable in the past two matches.
