The defending champions Chennai Super Kings will look to add more points to their tally when they take on Punjab Kings in the 38th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
With three wins in seven outings, Punjab Kings are placed at the seventh spot of the points table. From here on, they need to win all the remaining games to keep their playoff berth alive.
Despite having some big names in their squad, Punjab couldn’t manage to dominate the tournament. Captain Mayank Agarwal hasn’t looked in a good touch with Shikhar Dhawan blowing hot and cold this season. Except Liam Livingstone, none of their batters lived up to the expectations with Jonny Bairstow being their top disappointment.
Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand do not have much hopes from this season as they have managed to win just two of their seven games and are currently languishing at the second last spot of the points table.
Ruturaj Gaikwad has been their biggest disappointment at the top. Robin Uthappa and Ambati Rayudu have played some good knocks in the middle while Shivam Dube fared well with the bat this year. They need to win their remaining games with a huge margin if they have to keep their playoff hopes alive.
