In match 8 of the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League, 'Thala' Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings will take on Punjab Kings led by KL Rahul. CSK bowlers were ruthlessly butchered by Delhi Capitals in their last game, whereas Punjab Kings defeated Rajasthan Royals on the very last ball of their previous game.
CSK did a good job with the bat against DC, however they do need a big hitter to go berserk in the middle overs. Moreover, CSK bowlers need to stem the flow of runs in the powerplay.
Punjab Kings started off poorly last season. They lost the game which they should have won easily. This time, they are off to a great start and would like to carry the winning momentum forward. The team has ample amount of big hitters. Rahul, Gayle, Mayank, Pooran, Hooda and Shahrukh can destroy any bowling attack. However, they would like to improve their bowling in the death overs.
