KXIP vs CSK Dream11 Team News:
Kings XI Punjab :
- The batting looks fine with Rahul, Agarwal at the top. Pooran has done well. The question how long will they persist with Maxwell especially with Gayle warming the benches.
- The biggest worry is death overs bowling. Expect Neesham to sit out in the upcoming game.
- S Gopal hasn’t been at his best. He too might be under the scanner.
- Chris Gayle might make his way into the team for James Neesham.
- Arshdeep Singh and Mandeep Singh are other viable options that KXIP management can pick in the next affair.
Chennai Super Kings:
- CSK is known to give its players a longer rope irrespective of the results. With three consecutive losses, Dhoni might make a couple of changes.
- K Jadhav might make way for Ruturaj Gaikwad.
- A Rayudu and D Bravo’s performance will be critical for CSK.
- Imran Tahir might get his first shot in IPL 2020.
- Faf du Plessis will remain the pole bearer of the middle-order for his side.

KXIP vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Who will win the match
Kings XI have looked a different team in the death overs. They have lost all their three games in the death overs. But for most parts, they have done really well. CSK on the other hand doesn’t have the proper arsenal to exploit Punjab’s weakness. So expect Punjab to win this contest.
