Only one match will be played on Sunday in the IPL 2022. From 7:30 p.m., the defending champion Chennai Super Kings and the Punjab Kings will face off at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Both of CSK’s first two matches have ended in defeat. Punjab, on the other hand, has one win and one loss on its record.
His comprehension became a matter of which coin.
Ravindra Jadeja, Chennai’s new captain, has had a string of bad luck with the toss. In both matches, the coin toss has gone against him so far. His team scored 131 and 210 runs while playing first. Both times, the front team had no trouble chasing down the target.
Punjab, on the other hand, won the toss and set a target of 206 against RCB. At the same time, there was a stampede in the team after losing the toss in front of KKR. On the lines of Tu Chal, Main Aaya, all the batsmen dashed towards the pavilion.
In a head-to-head matchup, Chennai has the upper hand over Punjab.
In the IPL, CSK and PBKS have met 26 times. In this case, Chennai is present 16 times, while Punjab is present 10 times. Chennai has the highest total of 240 in an innings and the lowest total of 107 in an innings against Punjab. Punjab’s highest total and lowest score against CSK are 231 and 92 respectively.
Chennai’s bowling is a stumbling block.
The bowling line-up of CSK, which includes Mukesh Choudhary, Tushar Deshpande, and Shivam Dube, is enough to explain why Chennai is reeling from today’s loss. Deepak Chahar is unable to play due to an injury. Other bowlers have struggled to make an impact as well.
Captaincy has cast a pall over Jadeja.
Under the pressure of captaincy, Ravindra Jadeja, who has the ability to change the complexion of a match at any time with bat and ball, is unable to contribute to the team with his game. He has yet to take a wicket in either of the two matches he has played so far. In the first match, Jadeja only managed to score 26 runs in 28 balls while remaining unbeaten. In the second match, the situation remained the same.
If Chennai wants to get back on track, Ravindra Jadeja will need to regain his form. Captaincy is pointless as long as they don’t contribute anything to the game. In this case, the role of CSK’s coaching staff and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be crucial.
Punjab was never the same again.
Every season, the PBKS team gives fans hope by winning some extremely difficult matches, only to be eliminated from the IPL after losing a one-sided match. The team that roared like a lion against Bangalore looked very weak in front of Kolkata this year as well. Due to an embarrassing performance from the middle order, the team was all out in the 19th over after scoring just 137 runs on a batting friendly wicket.
Rabada, who came in at number 10, scored 25 runs with four fours and a six in this game as well, or the situation would have been much worse. Punjab is suffering as a result of the middle-order players’ inconsistency.
