1. Team News – Chennai Super Kings
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.
2. Team News – Punjab Kings
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.
