IPL 2021: CSK vs PBKS Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Tips, Probable Playing 11 Details

Chennai Super Kings clash with Punjab Kings in Match 53 of IPL 2021

Bengaluru, October 5: Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings clash in Match 53 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai on Thursday (October 7).

With a lot on the line, second placed CSK, who aim to finish in the top of the table, and play-off spot chasing PBKS clash in the first of Thursday's double-header.

While Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led CSK head into the match on the back of two successive losses to Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals, KL Rahul's PBKS are fresh off a defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore.


Although CSK lost two games on the trot, the team in yellow are still in a good position to finish in the top with 18 points from 13 matches and a better Net Run Rate (NRR). But they will need to win the match to go top of the table and their final position will also depend on DC's match against RCB.

PBKS, on the other hand, need a win to stay in the race for a play-off spot and it's not straightforward as Rahul's side will also sweat on results elsewhere. And their qualification hopes look very bleak.

Mumbai Indians defeated Rajasthan Royals and went above PBKS in the points table with 12 points on board. Also in the race for fourth spot is Kolkata Knight Riders, who currently hold the final play-off spot with 12 points from 13 matches with better NRR.

If KKR beat RR, Eoin Morgan's side will seal the final play-off spot in the second match of Thursday's double-header, but if MI beat SRH on Friday (October 8) by a huge margin, then the reigning champions can qualify.

All said and done, PBKS will look to end the league phase on a high after choking out to defeats in most of their matches. CSK too will look to regain momentum heading into the business end of the tournament.

CSK, who hold the advantage over Punjab-based franchise in the head-to-head battle with 15 wins from 25 meetings in IPL, have already defeated PBKS by 6 wickets in a low-scoring match earlier this season.

Now, myKhel takes a look at the team news, probable playing 11 and dream11 team prediction for CSK vs PBKS 2021:

Chennai Super Kings brought back Dwayne Bravo and Deepak Chahar to their line up to replace Sam Curran and KM Asif, but the team in yellow could not avoid a second defeat on the trot. Suresh Raina also missed the last match through injury and was replaced by Robin Uthappa, who may get another go if the CSK veteran is still unfit.

Also, Bravo could be rested with the play-off stages set for next week. However, CSK will be without Curran, who has been ruled out of the remainder of IPL and the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Punjab Kings made a few alterations to their team during the defeat to RCB with Moises Henriques and Sarfaraz Khan getting their first games of the UAE leg. PBKS could stick to the same 11 with only change likely in the batting department as Sarfaraz, who had a poor game could get dropped.
