PBKS Vs CSK: Match Report, Pitch Report & Playing XI

The 38th match of IPL 2022 will be played between Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings (PBKS vs CSK) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. CSK has played 7 matches so far this season, out of which this team has won two matches while losing five matches.

At the same time, Punjab Kings have played a total of seven matches so far, in which they have won three matches and lost four matches. Today we will tell you about the match preview, pitch report, and weather report related to this match.

PBKS Vs CSK, Match Preview

First of all, if we talk about CSK, then this team had defeated Mumbai Indians in their last match. In this match, the bowlers of CSK had performed well, but somewhere the batsmen did not play freely, a matter of concern was seen.

On the last occasion, only MS Dhoni had given the team victory by playing clever batting. If he had not shown this understanding, then CSK would hardly have won that match.

At the same time, neither the bat of Captain Jadeja is running nor has he been able to impress with the ball yet. Rituraj Gaikwad had scored 73 runs against Gujarat Titans but after that, he could not do anything amazing.

In such a situation, CSK will try to maintain the winning streak against Punjab.

At the same time, when it comes to PBKS, this team has suffered consecutive defeats in its last two matches. In such a situation, PBKS can take a big decision by ousting Jonny Bairstow as he has disappointed so far.

Apart from this, veteran Sandeep Sharma can also be given a chance by dropping fast bowler Vaibhav Arora. Along with this, PBSK batsmen Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingston, and Shahrukh Khan are not able to play consistently good innings.

However, bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh are in form. Well, now it has to be seen which team wins.

Pitch And Weather Reports

Talking about the Wankhede pitch, the batsmen get a lot of help here. Yes the average score in IPL is 180 runs. However, chasing runs in the second innings is also good here.

Short boundaries and a fast outfield will give the batsmen an advantage. Along with this, the pitch here also helps the spin bowlers a lot. The captain winning the toss will choose to bowl first keeping the dew in mind.

At the same time, talking about the weather, on April 25, Mumbai’s maximum temperature will be 35 and a minimum of 28 degrees Celsius. The ground will remain cloudy during the match.

The wind will blow at a speed of 48 kmph. There is no chance of a storm during the match.

Potential Playing XI Of Both The Teams

PBKS: Mayank Agarwal (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Liam Livingstone, Shah Rukh Khan, Jitesh Sharma, Odeon Smith, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Varun Arora, Arshdeep Singh.

CSK: Chennai Super Kings: Rituraj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Mitchell Santner, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dubey, MS Dhoni (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (c), Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Pretorius, Mahesh Tikshana, Mukesh Chaudhary.
