Punjab Kings are playing with a new name in IPL 2021, and they would be hoping to have a change of fortunes as well. The Punjab team is yet to win a title in IPL history so far, and have failed miserably in the last few seasons. Since 2015, PBKS have not qualified for the playoffs even once and have finished at the bottom of the points table twice.
Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, have been performing pretty well but could not ensure a place in the Top 4 last season. It was the first time in the IPL history that CSK failed to qualify for the playoffs. In IPL 2021, both teams will be playing against each other at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai and M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
Head to Head record:
In IPL history so far, both teams have played 23 games out of which 14 have been won by the CSK team, while Punjab have won the rest of the 9 matches. Both teams met in a high-profile qualifier match in IPL 2014, where Punjab were successful in winning to attain a place in the finals. Suresh Raina played a memorable knock of 87 runs in just 25 balls in that game.

Suresh Raina is ruling the charts as far as the top batsman in the clashes between two teams are concerned. He has scored the most runs (711), followed by MS Dhoni (525) and Faf du Plessis (481). Raina’s only IPL century has also come against the Punjab team. Among the bowlers, Dwayne Bravo with 14 wickets is at the top followed by Ravindra Jadeja (10), Lungi Ngidi (7) and Shardul Thakur (7).
Last season results:
Despite having a lacklustre performance last season, CSK won both their league games against Punjab in IPL 2020. In fact, CSK broke their initial streak of 3 consecutive losses by winning a game against Punjab dominantly by 10 wickets. Punjab had set a target of 179 runs for CSK with the help of a half-century from captain KL Rahul, but it was not enough for Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis.
In the second match, Punjab had to register a win for confirming their spot in the playoffs but CSK crushed their hopes. Punjab scored 153/6 in the first innings with the help of a fine fifty from Deepak Hooda. CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad scored 62 runs off 49 balls in the chase to help the team win by 9 wickets in 18.5 overs.
