KL Rahul will lead Kings XI Punjab against MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020. Watch KXIP vs CSK live.
It will be a battle of wounded kings in the Indian Premier League when the Kings XI Punjab take on the Chennai Super Kings on Sunday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Both Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings have managed just one victory in IPL 2020, with CSK sitting at bottom of the points table currently.
CSK captain MS Dhoni has to contend with a few of his batsmen being out of form. Faf du Plessis has shouldered the batting burden with two fifties in three matches and he can expect to share the load with Ambati Rayudu, who is expected to return from injury.
The bowlers have not given away much but 41-year-old Imran Tahir could expect to play his first game of the season in place of fellow leg-spinner Piyush Chawla who has been a tad expensive the last couple of games. Watch KXIP vs CSK on live streaming.
Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, have not been at their best. Though skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have registered the only two centuries of IPL 2020, KXIP’s bowlers have not fully complemented their batsmen’s efforts.
The KXIP bowlers came up short against defending champions Mumbai Indians, conceding 67 runs off the last four overs. It gave their batsmen a target of 192, which they were unable to chase down.
However, the match-up against an out-of-form CSK batting line-up could just be the opportunity the KXIP bowlers need to regain their lost confidence.
