Defending champions Chennai Super Kings will look to get back to winning ways after a demoralizing loss against Mumbai Indians when they take on high-flying Kings XI Punjab at home on Saturday. Both the teams have won three of their opening four games but the momentum is now firmly in Kings XI Punjab’s favour who have won their last two games in an emphatic fashion.

Chennai Super Kings had a day to forget at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday as Mumbai Indians thrashed them by 37 runs. Super Kings were well at top of the proceedings for the first 18 overs of the game before Mumbai turned the tables. In their final two overs, Mumbai Indians amassed 45 runs to set the Super Kings a competitive target of 171. The Mumbai Indians bowlers then came up with an even better display to restrict the formidable lineup of the visitors to a modest 133 for 8.

What has further caused problems for the Super Kings is the lack of fast-bowlers. The Super Kings have no frontline overseas pacer in the team after losing Lungi Ngidi and David Willey. The likes of Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and Mohit Sharma are there but the pace-bowling department is looking depleted. Moreover, Super Kings have also lost their allrounder Dwayne Bravo for a couple of weeks due to a hamstring injury. With such a depleted bowling attack, the Super Kings will have to play out of their skin to get the better of in-form Kings XI.

Kings XI are entering this game after a thrilling 14-run win over Delhi Capitals. Delhi were 144 for 3 in pursuit of 167 when Sam Curran picked up a sensational hat-trick and helped his side pick up the remaining seven wickets for just 8 runs to stun Delhi. With momentum in their side, Kings XI will be looking to make the most of it.

How will be the weather?

The fans are set to witness the full game as there is no prediction of rain. According to AccuWeather, the temperature will be around 30 degree celsius when the teams fight it out in the hot and humid conditions of Chennai. The sky will remain clear with around 5% cloud cover while the humidity will hover between 70-85%.
