The pitch at Abu Dhabi looks very good for batting as we have got to see some fresh wickets lately.

Match Details:

The 53rd match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Chennai and Punjab at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. We have got the best Chennai vs Punjab team prediction for today’s match.

Chennai vs Punjab Match 53 is scheduled to start at 03:30 PM IST (02:00 PM local time) (10:00 AM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.


The Indian T20 League cannot get better than this. We hardly got three days left in the league stage and there are still a few slots open for the playoffs. Except for Chennai, every team still has the opportunity to get through to the playoffs. Chennai are taking on Punjab on Sunday afternoon for the 53rd fixture of the Indian T20 League.

This match might play a big role in the qualification scenario of all the remaining teams. Chennai are coming off two big wins against Bangalore and Kolkata. They went all guns blazing as they got nothing to lose in this competition. They finally got their combination right with one Indian playing at the top order and three spinners as options during the middle overs. However, we expect another special game for Chennai to finish their campaign in some style.

On the other side, Punjab suffered a defeat for the first time in the second half of the tournament. They are still in a good position to qualify and play in the playoffs. They are looking like a decent batting unit. Chris Gayle’s inclusion has been the best decision they took this season.

Although, they need to win this game very badly to play the playoffs (Other mathematical calculations inclusive). KL Rahul might need to accelerate his innings which might actually help his team big time. With Shami, Jordan bowling well, they are clear favourites to get back on track and register a win in their final fixture of the league stage.

Pitch Report

The pitch at Abu Dhabi looks very good for batting as we have got to see some fresh wickets lately. There is a grass covering which provides a bit of seam movement early in the game. Otherwise, batting second has been a cakewalk for the batsmen.
