Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Match 53: Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings

Chennai Super Kings will face Punjab Kings in the 53rd match of the IPL 2021. It’s a game that both teams need to win. Chennai will be looking for a top-two finish, whereas Punjab will need to win to remain in the playoff race. Chennai Super Kings are in trouble, losing their past two matches to Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals. With 18 points, they are currently in second place in the standings.

Punjab has relied heavily on top-order hitters throughout the competition, and a significant problem has been a shortage of game-changers in the middle order. They were cruising along against RCB at one point but eventually lost by 6 runs. With 10 points, they are currently in sixth place in the standings. Their qualification scenarios need to pay special attention to the KKR, MI, and RR results.

 

Weather
While the temperature will be around 37°C, it should be a hot and sunny afternoon in Dubai.

 

Pitch
The wicket in Dubai has been low-scoring in recent matches, with first-innings totals of fewer than 140 in both the SRH-KKR and CSK-DC games. This encounter could have a similar two-paced surface, with a total of 160-165 will be challenging.
