Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab – Match 45 Preview – IPL 2013 IPL 6

Chennai, May 1: Struggling for form but showing some spark at the same time, Kings XI Punjab will have to brace up for another massive challenge when they take on former champions and table-toppers Chennai Super Kings in their IPL match here on Thursday (May 2).

Punjab ended just four runs shy of what could have been a morale-lifting win over the Mumbai Indians in their most recent match. They showed the stomach for a fight but just did not get that one crucial knock from any of their batsmen which could have take them to a win.

Chennai, on the other hand, don’t seem to be doing anything wrong in what has been a smooth campaign so far. Leaders by quite a distance on the points table after eight wins from 10 matches, they are the team to beat this IPL. Chennai have won their last six matches, with opener Michael Hussey in sublime form.

IPL 2012 Preview: Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab, 17 May 2012

On a three-match winning streak, Chennai Super Kings will look to seal their play-off berth when they take on an erratic Kings XI Punjab in a crucial preliminary match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012.

The tournament in its final leg, there is a mad scramble to bag the three available spots in the top-four to make the play-off cut after table-toppers Delhi Daredevils became the first team to qualify with 20 points from 14 matches.

Chennai, playing their last league match tomorrow, are on the fourth spot after eight wins and six losses that left their points tally at 17.

Kings XI Punjab also have an outside chance of making the play-offs provided they win both their remaining matches and some results go their way. Punjab are currently seventh in the list with seven wins and an equal number of losses.

Led by stand-in captain David Hussey, KXIP have the daunting task of beating tough teams such as Chennai and Delhi Daredevils here.

Opener Mandeep Singh has been the prolific scorer for his team accumulating. Australian Shaun Marsh, former Pakistani all-rounder Azhar Mahmood and young South African David Miller too have shown that the home side’s batting has depth.

But the defeat against Delhi in the away match would have surely affected the team’s morale.

Medium pacers Praveen Kumar, Parvinder Awana and Mahmood who can bat as well, have done a decent job in the bowling department and the team’s fielding, too, has improved as the tournament has progressed.
