The CSK in Punjab Kings is two losses in a row after scoring a berth in the playoffs. They’ve won four out of four since the UAE leg began, but both Rajasthan Royals and the Delhi Capitals have subsequently fallen away. Hi, and welcome to both sides in the last league matches. CSK will aim to take some momentum to the playoffs while PBKS will only try to keep up with them. You are not totally, mathematically, but in this game, you will need more than a win (and a miracle) to do it.
