Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in match number 11 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday. This will be an evening game and will begin at 7:30 PM IST. CSK have had a poor start to the IPL and are still looking for their first points on the board. After going down to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 6 wickets in the season opener, they went down to the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) as well by a similar margin, despite putting up 210 on the board.

PBKS have made a mixed start to their IPL 2022 journey. They were excellent with the bat in their first match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), chasing down a target of 206 with five wickets in hand. However, the same batting floundered against KKR as they were restricted to 137 batting first. The bowlers fought hard but Kolkata eventually eased to victory on the back of Andre Russell’s batting might.

CSK impressed with the bat against LSG as Robin Uthappa scored a brisk fifty and good contributions came from Moeen Ali and Shivam Dube. However, they would want runs from Ruturaj Gaikwad and more out of Ambati Rayudu. There is some weakness in the bowling with the likes of Dube and Tushar Deshpande.

CSK Predicted XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (w), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Maheesh Theekshana, Tushar Deshpande

PBKS need to be consistent with their batting. Bhanuka Rajapaksa is the only one who has been among the runs in both the games. Liam Livingstone needs to get his act right because he has failed far too often in the IPL. Rahul Chahar has been excellent with the ball for PBKS while Kagiso Rabada’s presence has been a welcome addition to the squad.

PBKS Predicted XI: Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (w), Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Rishi Dhawan, Arshdeep Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar

Top fantasy picks for CSK vs PBKS clash: Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Mayank Agarwal, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Rahul Chahar
