CSK vs PBKS 53rd Match IPL 2024 Highlights 5-5-2024

Watch cricket video highlights between Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings. Indian Premier League 2024 fifty third match, played at Dharamsala.

Just two Twenty20 matches have taken place in Dharamsala over the past seven years, and both of them were highly successful—at least by pre-IPL 2024 standards. When PBKS last played here in 2023, Rossouw was part of the opposition and helped Delhi Capitals post 213 for 2 and win by 15 runs. Rossouw hit 82 not out off 37 balls. The game is in the afternoon, and it should be about 27°C outside.

Shivam Dube has been CSK’s engine room in the middle overs, therefore his wicket was very important. This season, he has amassed 350 runs at an average of 50.00 and a strike rate of 171.56; the only other CSK batsman to reach 200 is Gaikwad. If the ball gets set, it could be difficult to stop Brar or Rahul Chahar, two of the PBKS spinners, who both turn the ball into Dube.

Despite having just six wickets in 10 games, Harpreet Brar has an outstanding economy rate of 7.21. Only three bowlers this season with superior economy rates are Jasprit Bumrah (6.25), Sunil Narine (6.72), and Krunal Pandya (7.20) among those who have bowled at least 100 deliveries. Brar was named Player of the Match for his 2 for 17 total, which included dismissing Shivam Dube for a first-ball duck, when PBKS played CSK earlier in the week.

Tushar Deshpande, who missed the last game due to fever, could be ready, but CSK will need to change up their bowling lineup because Mustafizur Rahaman returned to Bangladesh for national service and Deepak Chahar is injured. Mitchell Santner and Maheesh Theekshana are expected to enter one each, and Mukesh Choudhary may play in his second game of the year. They may choose between Choudhary and Ajinkya Rahane for Impact Player.

Shikhar Dhawan is still not quite fit. Coach of PBKS spin bowling Sunil Joshi expressed optimism that he will be fit for the final two games. Joshi said that they wished to hold onto the winning lineup. They anticipate using Arshdeep Singh and Prabhsimran Singh as their Impact Player choices once more. PBKS chose to bowl first, and Kagiso Rabada, Harpreet Brar, and Rahul Chahar bowled at less than a run a ball, limiting CSK to 162 for 7. With 2.1 overs remaining, Jonny Bairstow and Rilee Rossouw guided PBKS to victory in the chase.

Only two clubs have defeated CSK in five straight IPL encounters. Naturally, Mumbai Indians are one among them. The other team is PBKS, who began their run in 2021 and on Wednesday defeated MI by seven wickets in Chepauk to tie the record. They will want to make it six straight when they play CSK on Sunday at their second home stadium, Dharamsala. However, PBKS has not had much success playing at home this season; in five games, they have only won once at Mullanpur, their primary home stadium.

They will be hoping that switching locations would result in better luck and allow them to maintain their position in the playoff race. Although CSK is in a much more comfortable position, their performance has waned as the competition has gone on. They defeated Gujarat Titans and Royal Challengers Bengaluru to open the season. But they have only managed one victory in their past four games, which include three at home.

Nor has Ruturaj Gaikwad’s terrible luck with the toss aided them. Thus far, he has lost five consecutive throws and nine of his 10 total. Yet, Dharamsala will live on in the hearts of CSK supporters. When CSK faced Kings XI Punjab in 2010, they needed 16 runs in the last over. With two balls remaining, MS Dhoni blasted back-to-back sixes off Irfan Pathan to win the match. He gave the tournament one of its most memorable moments when, in an unusual display of passion, he hit his helmet in delight.
