The defending champions, Chennai Super Kings have not been lucky with the start of the IPL 2022 edition. They were humiliated by the previous season’s runners-up, Kolkata Knight Riders, in the opening match of the IPL 2022.
They were defeated by 6 wickets. The Super kings depended on legendary MS Dhoni’s unbeaten fifty, skipper Ravindra Jadeja’s (captain) contributions, and Robin Uthappa’s (28) to earn a modest 131 for five. However, KKR overhauled the target, with 133 for four in 18.3 overs. Things kept being hard for the Super Kings at Wankhede Stadium.
The seventh match proceeded with the super kings battling with the new entrants Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) to the IPL. The KL Rahul Super Giants knocked the defending champions, winning with 6 wickets just like KKR. CSK for the second time allowed their opponents to chase over 210 targets in IPL. They granted the Super Giants their first win in IPL. As they proceed to battle with the Punjab Kings, our best guess is a win in their favour, since they have hardly lost thrice in a row since the start of IPL.
Over the years, the main problem affecting the Punjab Kings is an unbalanced squad and lack of an inspiring leader yet they have kept on changing captains. However, the IPL match 2022 seems to start well for the Punjab Kings as they spanked the Royal Challengers Bangalore with a memorable five wickets at the DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai. Based on the performance of both teams in their previous matches, we place our odds on the defending champions.
In IPL history, the two teams have met 25 times, with Chennai Super Kings winning 15 matches and Punjab Kings winning 10 matches. In the current form of the Punjab Kings, the battle between the kings is likely to be stiff and whoever wins (most probably CSK), the margin wouldn’t be large. The two have never tied and we don’t expect that either.
Possible Playing XI For Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ambati Rayudu, Robin Uthappa, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja (captain), Dwayne Bravo, Adam Milne, KM Asif, Tushar Deshpande, Mahesh Theeekshana, N Jagadeesh, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Prashant Solanki, S Senapati.
Possible Playing XI For Punjab Kings (PBKS)

Fantasy Batsmen For Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Match Prediction
From the Super Kings, we predict Ruturaj Gaikwad will open the bat, being among the best batters of CSK. We also expect legendary MS Dhoni to exhibit his experience as the best batter in the first wicket fall. In our prediction, Ruturaj Gaikwad will open the bat, and MS Dhoni to emerge as the best wicketkeeper.
For the Punjab Kings, our eyes are glued on Captain Mayank Agarwal or Shikhar Dhawan to open the bat. We also expect Jonny Bairstow, Jitesh Sharma, or P.s Singh to participate in the fall of the first wicket. Our fantasy best batter is Mayank Agarwal while the best wicketkeeper is Jonny Bairstow.

For Chennai Super Kings, we expect the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Captain Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar (if he will be available), Tushar Deshpande, and Chris Jordan or KM Asif to battle for the best bowler’s title. In our prediction, Ravindra Jadeja is likely to carry the day. From the side of the Kings from Punjab, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, and Kagiso Rabada are expected to top in performance as bowlers. However, Kagiso Rabada has more chances of winning the fantasy best bowler’s title.
Role of Toss in Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Match Prediction
Chennai Super Kings will choose to bat first if they win the toss, while Punjab Kings will have to bat second if they win the toss. Toss plays a great role in most Indian cricket matches.

Should they win batting first, we predict the first inn runs, first six over the session, and first ten over the session.
Case 2: if Punjab Kings (PBKS) bats first
If the toss favours the kings of Punjab to bat first, we predict the first six over the session, the first in runs, and the first ten over sessions.
