CHENNAI SUPER KINGS VS PUNJAB KINGS
Series Name IPL 2023
Start Date 30/04/2023 ( Day Match )
Start Time 15:30
Stadium MA Chidambaram Stadium
Venue Chennai, India
Chennai Super Kings Win Percentage:
Their win rate was 70%, having won 7 out of 10 matches and only losing 3. Despite being one of the original teams of the Indian Premier League since 2008, the Punjab Kings have struggled to achieve success. They have only made it to the final once and have advanced from the group stages on just two occasions. However, there is hope that the Kings can finally make a run for the trophy in 2023.
Unfortunately, the Kings will be without Jonny Bairstow due to injury, but they will have Liam Livingstone and Kagiso Rabada back on the team. Rabada, a South African paceman, performed well last season with 23 wickets at an average of 17.65. Sam Curran, a left-arm fast bowler, will also contribute star quality to fill a gap in the team. He returns to the Kings after a brief stint with the Chennai Super Kings.
Shikhar Dhawan will continue as the team captain, and Nathan Ellis, an Australian player, will play his second year in the IPL after being retained by the Kings for another season.
Punjab Kings Win Percentage:
Among the teams that have participated in at least 20 IPL matches, Chennai Super Kings have the highest rate of victories at 58.41%. Out of the 209 matches they have played, they have won 121, lost 86, and tied one.
Suresh Raina had been an integral part of the franchise from the beginning, but the chinna thala retired from IPL and international cricket in 2022. As IPL 2023 approaches, he remains the franchise's highest run-scorer and the fifth-highest overall. He scored 4687 runs for CSK in 171 innings at an average of 32.32 and a strike rate of 136.88. During this time, he also scored one century and 33 fifties. Overall, he is one of only six batters to have scored more than 5000 runs, accumulating a total of 5528 runs at an average of 32.51.
Out of the current players, MS Dhoni has the highest number of runs for CSK, scoring 4404 runs in 179 innings at an average of 40.40 and a strike rate of 136.68. He has scored 22 half-centuries for the franchise.
Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Previous Match
In the first ball, MS Dhoni hit a six off Rishi Dhawan's bowling, but two balls later, he was caught at deep midwicket, which marked the end for CSK.
During the 38th match of the TATA Indian Premier League 2022 (IPL season 15) between the Punjab Kings and the Chennai Superkings, held at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on 25th April 2022, Mayank Agarwal, the captain of the Punjab Kings, celebrated after taking the wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad of the Chennai Superkings.
However, the Punjab pacers quickly dismissed that notion with an exceptional performance in the powerplay, particularly by debutant Vaibhav Arora, who swung the ball in both directions. The rest of the pace bowlers also contributed to dismissing the top players of CSK, reducing them to 36/5. Winning from there would have required a miracle, but Dube tried and scored 57 runs off 30 balls. Nevertheless, Livingstone outshined him with a remarkable performance, including a double-strike that secured the win for Punjab, after having hit 60 runs off 32 balls earlier in the game.
