Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings – IPL Betting Tips

Chennai Super Kings will face Punjab Kings in match 53 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in Dubai on Thursday. 

For the Super Kings, the game is of little significance as they’ve already secured their place in the playoffs after registering 18 points from 13 matches. 

However, to finish in the top two and have a chance of an additional opportunity to cement their spot in the final of the competition, the management will be hoping to see the players put another good performance and conclude the first round on a high. 

On the other hand, Punjab are still just about in the race to book their place for the playoffs after registering just 10 points after 13 matches. 

As things stand, the Kings will need a lot of things—other than winning their final match—to qualify for the next round. 

Therefore, the management will be hoping that the players will produce an amazing performance and help the side in securing a big win in the last round-robin match which could enhance their chances of securing a spot in the last four. 

In the meeting between the teams earlier in the competition, it was the Super Kings who came out on top with a six-wicket margin.

Chennai Super Kings Form and Team news: 

Despite suffering a defeat in their previous outing against the Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings will enter Thursday’s contest as firm favourites. 

Even though the three-time champions would ideally want to finish the round-robin with another win, they are likely to test their bench strength to give a much-needed rest to some of the key players ahead of the all-important playoffs. 

In the batting department, the Super Kings will be relying on the likes of in-form Ruturaj Gaikwad, former South Africa’s skipper Faf du Plessis, veteran duo of Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, captain MS Dhoni and all-rounders Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Josh Hazlewood, Shardul Thakur, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar along with the spin duo of Ali and Jadeja to produce timely breakthroughs. 

Punjab Kings Form and Team News: 

After suffering a heartbreaking defeat against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their previous fixture, Punjab Kings will enter the contest knowing that they have very little chance of making it to the next stage of the competition. 

The management will be once again disappointed with the performance of the batters against the RCB where despite scoring 91 runs for the first wicket while chasing 165 in a must-win match, the side only managed to post 158 for the loss of six wickets in their allotted 20 overs. 

In the batting department, the management will be relying on the likes of captain KL Rahul, opener Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran and Aiden Markram to help the team in posting a decent total on the board. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Mohammad Shami, Moises Henriques along with the spin duo of Ravi Bishnoi, Harpreet Bar to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster Angle

Both teams are coming in the contest on the back of suffering a close defeat in their previous outings. On paper, Chennai Super Kings look a far solid unit compared to Punjab Kings. Therefore, the prediction is for the Dhoni-led unit to secure another win on Thursday.

Tip 1- Chennai Super Kings dominant record against Punjab Kings.

Chennai Super Kings will take heart from the fact that they have an excellent head-to-head record against Punjab Kings the IPL. 

Both teams have competed 25 times in the history of the IPL where the Chennai Super Kings have a far better record with 16 wins compared to Punjab’s nine victories. 

Given their excellent record against Punjab in IPL, we expect Chennai Super Kings to beat Punjab Kings by a comfortable margin.

Tip 2- Ravindra Jadeja to continue his excellent form with the ball for Chennai

Left-arm orthodox Ravindra Jadeja was the standout performer with the ball in hand for Chennai Super Kings for past couple of seasons. In the previous match, Ravindra Jadeja bowled well and conceded less than seven runs an over. With 10 wickets at an economy rate of 6.75 so far this season, we expect left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja to take one wicket or more against Punjab.


Expect Chennai Super Kings to beat Punjab Kings and extend their lead in the points table in IPL.

  1. Chennai Super Kings to beat Punjab Kings by a narrow margin- Chennai Super Kings
  2. Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja to take one wicket or more against Punjab-Chennai Super Kings
