Team News:

Chennai Super Kings

Shane Watson might have to make way for Faf du Plessis who has surprisingly been benched so far this season. Watson also needs some break and it will help him going forward. Harbhajan Singh should also come back into the playing XI on this pitch as it will turn. Scott Kuggeleijn is likely to make his IPL debut with Dwayne Bravo getting injured in the previous match.

Kings XI Punjab

There is no update on Chris Gayle’s fitness so far which means KL Rahul and Sam Curran should continue opening the innings. Ravi Ashwin is known to make frequent changes to the playing XI and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, in that case, might be left out for Varun Chakravarthy who endured a tough debut and couldn’t play the previous game due to illness. The rest of the side should be the same unless injury forces more changes.
