The second clash of Sunday’s doubleheader will be played at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali between KXIP and CSK. Kings 11 Punjab will host Chennai Super Kings in the 12th match of the eleventh edition of IPL.
Chennai Super Kings’ journey has been exhilarating so far. They have played two games and have clinched victory in the last over. KXIP, on the opposite, lost their second game by 4 wickets against RCB.
Both the teams have some big hitter and a high scoring match is expected to take place.
No such changes are expected in both the squads. While Chennai has won both its game, they might stick to the same playing 11. Management can look options for Deepak Chahar. He was a bit expensive in the last match. However, there is no news from the management about experimenting in the playing 11.
Suresh Raina is out of next two matches due to the foot injury
There is no news of Murali Vijay or Faf du Plessis getting play the game. Management will have to try different combinations to make room for them.
Punjab is also expected to field the same playing 11 despite losing the last game.

Apart from one or two changes, both the teams will field the same playing 11. The probable PNJ vs CHE Playing 11 is listed below.
Ravichandran Ashwin (c), Lokesh Rahul (wk), Andrew Tye, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Sam Billings, Shardul Thakur
For CSK, Shane Watson is in a brilliant form. He blasted 19 balls 42 against KKR and also took 2 wickets in the allotted 4 overs. Ambati Rayudu, Sam Billings, and Dwayne Bravo will be the other contributors for CSK.
Sam Billings 23 ball half-century helped CSK chase the 203 target in the last match.
For Punjab, KL Rahul is in phenomenal form. After blasting fastest half-century in the history of IPL in the first game, Rahul scored 47 of 30 balls in the second match against RCB. Karun Nair, Aaron Finch, and Marcus Stoinis are the other players who can contribute with the bat.
In bowling, R Ashwin and young Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be the key bowlers for Punjab. Ashwin played a crucial role in the last match. He scored 33 of 21 balls and also took 2 wickets.
In both the team, if we consider the current form, CSK is looking a bit stronger. However, the home advantage might give an edge over the visitors to Punjab. While it is a team effort from CSK, Punjab is still relying on just a few players for victory. Yuvraj Singh and Aaron Finch will have to contribute with the bat.
As per our PNJ vs CHE match prediction, CSK seems to have an edge over the hosts and might turn out as the winner.
KL Rahul on top as a wicketkeeper will be the perfect choice as Dhoni comes down the order and is also out of form. In all-rounder, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, and M Stoinis will be the safe bet. Both Watson and Bravo are in a great form. In bowling, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, R Ashwin, and Shardul Thakur can be the right choice.
