IPL match prediction for CSK vs KXIP is as followed:-
Toss Predictions for csk vs KXIP:
The Pitch report for M.A. Chidambaram is mostly prefered to the spinners as the weather is humid over there and it also becomes easy to chase for the batsmen. The one who usually wins the toss elects to bowl first. The average score at Chidambaram is 165+ in the 1st innings.
If CSK bats first (predicted score:180-200):
CSK looks with experienced line-up where all the batsmen are 30+ aged and bats with calmness without taking any risks, if they lose early wickets the pressure comes to the middle-order, the key in the Csk batting unit would be Rayudu and Watson as their pair has been consistent and Watson has a hundred to his name against his previous franchise so we can expect a big partnership from these two.
If Kxip bats first (predicted score: 160-180):
Kl Rahul is the strength of Punjab’s batting, it will depend on how he starts the innings and even Henriques will be expected to support him as he plays very well at No.3. The death over in T20s always plays a major role. We predict Nair to score the most runs from the team.
Team News for CSK and KXIP:
Csk:- Csk has not many newcomers in their squad this season so we will be seeing the same team which played last season and won the title on a comeback note after 2 years. There will be a stance on Du Plessis opening or Rayudu will open along with Watson. Dhoni might go with 3 spinners as the condition is spin friendly, so we predict Jadeja, Harbhajan and Tahir to be featured in the playing XI.

Watson, Rayudu, Raina, Jadhav, Dhoni, Bravo, Jadeja, Harbhajan, Chahar, Ngidi, Tahir.
Kxip:- The team has got someone like Varun Chakravarthy to turn the ball, his spell with Ashwin can produce some dent in Csk’s batting order.
