When Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) locked horns with each other in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Punjab had emerged out victorious in both the occasions. CSK were not in a good position in that season and they have bounced back strongly.
Punjab Kings travel to Chennai to take on Chennai Super Kings in this IPL 2023 game at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The match is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST) and promises to ooze a lot of entertainment and action.
The Shikhar Dhawan led Punjab side are coming on the back of a heavy 56-run defeat at the hands of Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). Lucknow blasted their way to 257 in the first innings, showing no respite to the Punjab bowlers.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for today’s CSK vs PBKS game in IPL 2023:
1. Devon Conway (Chennai Super Kings)
Kiwi swashbuckling opener Devon Conway has been the highest run-getter for CSK in this edition of the IPL. He has amassed 322 runs at an average of 46.00 and is a dependable batter at the top for the 4-time IPL champions.
He recently scored 4 consecutive 50s in IPL 2023 but that streak was broken off after some disciplined bowling by Rajasthan Royals (RR). Nevertheless, Devon Conway can be a really good vice-captain pick in your fantasy team.
2. Atharva Taide (Punjab Kings)
Chasing down a humongous total of 258 runs in the previous game versus LSG, Atharva Taide showed a lot of courage, determination and spunk. He struck an aggressive knock of 66 runs in just 36 balls, coming in at number 3.
Taide’s knock was packed with 8 fours and 2 sixes and he batted with a dominating strike-rate of 183.33 and is a must-have member in your fantasy team for this CSK vs PBKS game.
3. Shikhar Dhawan (Punjab Kings)
A lot of Punjab fans would be heaving a sigh of relief after seeing their regular skipper and star batter Shikhar Dhawan come back into the team after missing out on a few games because of a shoulder injury.
In 5 matches, Dhawan has scored 234 runs at a blistering average of 78.00 and he remains as one of the most vital cogs in the wheels of the Punjab Kings’ team. Dhawan will be one of the key players to watch out for today’s CSK vs PBKS game at Chennai.
