Punjab Kings VS Chennai Super Kings Match Prediction
We had to consider multiple factors here, although Punjab Kings’ beginning was good, and they won their first game of the season. After analyzing the last match with Rajasthan Royals, both pacer duo Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith were expensive. PBKS will have to improve their bowling lineup if they don’t want to give more runs.
CSK doesn’t have won any match in this season, and they are struggling continuously because of their poor performance from the previous season. They need to strategize everything to come back in the upcoming match, but chances are less to win against powerful teams like PBKS.
