Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Highlights today Friday, 16-04-2021 – 8th Match (N), Indian Premier League season 14th from Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
CSK won the toss and chose to bowl first.
Dhoni: The only thing they need to remember is they will get hit off good balls, but you need to assess whether it was a good shot or bad delivery. Otherwise, they’ve been doing well in practice sessions. Mostly, it’s a mental game in cricket. Adaptability is the key factor, overall it’s more of a mental game than the physical aspect. To start off, the pitch looks tacky and a bit more grass. As the game progresses, dew will come and it will settle. It will do a bit in the first few overs.
Rahul: We did well last game and we will try to assess the pitch as quickly as we can. In Wankhede, every strip looks the same. I wasn’t disappointed with them, they stuck to their plans. Even if they go for runs, it’s fine. We are playing the same team.
Chennai Super Kings team: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (capt&wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar.
