Match Previews

Kings XI Punjab v Chennai Super Kings

The match between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, in Mohali, could be accepted as to be inconsequential, as Punjab have made things very difficult for themselves after losing the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They are with 10 points after five wins and eight losses from 13 matches. Punjab's net run rate is also negative which further affects their chances of making the final cut.

There is only one condition under which KXIP can qualify to the playoffs i.e if each of Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders lose their last match and Punjab win their last game by an insane margin, which appears to be highly unlikely.

KL Rahul and Chris Gayle will open the batting for the team. Nicholas Pooran and Sam Curran showed in the last match that they have the ability to clear the fence at will. Punjab will have three spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin, Murugan Ashwin and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, while Mohammed Shami will be their lead pacer.

With nine wins and four losses from 13 matches, Chennai Super Kings are most likely to finish in the top two and move to Qualifier 1. They will be led by the fit-again MS Dhoni who had an instant impact in the last match with an unbeaten 44 and two lightning-quick stumpings.

Chennai do have a few loopholes in their side but they are a momentum team and are capable of covering those weaknesses on their day.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Kings XI Punjab - Lokesh Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Nicholas Pooran, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mohammed Shami, Murugan Ashwin, Arshdeep Singh

Chennai Super Kings- Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir


Mumbai Indians v Kolkata Knight Riders

Having already qualified to the playoffs, Mumbai will eye a spot in Qualifier 1 as they take on Kolkata Knight Riders at Mumbai's home ground at the Wankhede Stadium.

Kolkata Knight Riders have done most things right that are under their control. They beat Kings XI Punjab comfortably in their last match, credit to a match-winning half-century from Shubman Gill. Dinesh Karthik also showed some fireworks later in the match to help improve the net run rate of the Kolkata Knight Riders.

As things stand, if Sunrisers Hyderabad win their last match, they will be through to the playoffs and the result of Kolkata's last match would not matter. However, if SRH lose and Kolkata can win their last match, they will seal a playoff berth.

In the case of both Hyderabad and Kolkata losing their last matches, SRH will in all probability move ahead, given their net run rate, which is the best across all teams.

Mumbai Indians are with eight wins and five losses from 13 matches and have 16 points. It has been one of the rare seasons for the team when they got off to a relatively good start and did not have to depend on the last couple of matches in order to qualify for the playoffs.

Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard are turning out to be excellent finishes for the team and this is what is giving Mumbai an extra push. Jasprit Bumrah remains their bowling trump card.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Mumbai Indians- Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Barinder Sran, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga

Kolkata Knight Riders- Shubman Gill, Chris Lynn, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Piyush Chawla, Harry Gurney, Sandeep Warrier
