The Chennai Super Kings will take on Punjab Kings in Match 53 of the Indian Premier League 2021 season on Thursday at the Dubai International Stadium.

Chennai Super Kings lost to the Delhi Capitals in their previous match by three wickets. They failed to defend 137 runs on a sluggish wicket in Dubai. This was their second consecutive loss in the tournament. However, they will be pleased with Ruturaj Gaikwad’s form.

The MS Dhoni-led team has 18 points in their pocket from 13 matches and has already qualified for the playoffs. They are fighting to secure a place in the top two on the points table in IPL 2021.

While the Punjab Kings has 10 points from 13 matches so far in the league. Their campaign has been massively hampered by losses in close encounters. They lost by 6 runs against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous match.

The Punjab Kings have a very slight chance of making it to the playoffs of IPL 2021. They need to win against the Chennai Super Kings by a huge margin to get their NRR above KKR and the hope that no other team gets to 14 points. However, with the odds against them, they could be a dangerous team.

The pitch at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium has been sluggish so far in the Indian Premier League 2021. As the boundaries are long, batters find it difficult to go for the hits consistently. 160-170 should be a challenging score on this track.
