CSK vs KXIP Match Preview
Chennai super kings arguably best IPL team of history are once again qualified for the playoffs easily and are now eyeing for top 2 finish, if they win against Kings 11 on Sunday they will fix the top spot at the points table and that is exactly what they will be up for. Another big plus for CSK, if they qualify at top 2, is they will play the qualifiers at home where their record is quite impressive.
Teams Like KXIP and RCB keep repeating same mistakes, again and again, season after season and for KXIP, after winning four out of their first six matches in IPL 2019, they managed just two wins in their next nine games to be ousted from the playoffs contention.
They now run into Chennai Super Kings, who had knocked them out last season. Super Kings were the first to qualify for the playoffs this year, and they now have a chance to finish No. 1 and firm up their place in the first qualifier at their fortress Chepauk.
Shane Watson has played one match-winning knock so far at the top, but he should relish this Mohali track, where the bounce is largely consistent and the ball slides onto the bat. Kings XI’s middle order is rickety as well, but that’s partly down to mismanagement of resources. David Miller got 10 matches but has scored only 213 runs.
Nicholas Pooran, a more versatile performer and an excellent player of spin, who deftly tackled sluggish surfaces in the Caribbean Premier League, has got only five innings this IPL, making 132 runs at a greater strike rate of 155.29. Pooran v Super Kings’ spinners could well turn out to be a mouth-watering contest.
