IPL 2021 PBKS vs CSK 8th Match Match Preview:
Punjab Kings had a great start in the tournament, especially with the bat. They got a batting-friendly pitch and made full use of it. The top-order looks solid with the likes of KL Rahul, Chris Gayle contributing in the last game. Deepak Hooda will be the player to watch out for. Shahrukh Khan could be the game-changer in this game.
The bowlers couldn't do much with dew but they were still able to defend 222, even though it was a close game. Arshdeep Singh is an underrated bowler and picks at least one wicket per match. Chris Jordan could come in place of Riley Meredith in this game.
Chennai Super Kings, despite having so much depth in their batting, was not able to reach a par score in their first game. Although one of the positives would be the Suresh Raina factor. The left-hander smashed his way to a fifty although he didn't play a professional game in a long time.
Sam Curran is the key player for CSK and so is Ravindra Jadeja since they will be providing the finishing touch to innings. Shardul Thakur had an off-game but he has is in good form lately and can provide the breakthroughs. CSK is likely to play the same team for this game.
Chennai Super Kings have been a better team than Punjab Kings in the past. However, PBKS is looking as favorites for this game considering the form of the batsmen and the weak bowling of CSK.
