This time Chennai’s batting looks great, and Dhoni is in great form, who scored 75 runs in 46 balls in the last match against Rajasthan Royals. Chennai has a great batting lineup and there is a diversity in spin bowling, while Mumbai has a better pace attack.

Mumbai’s team is very dependent on its openers Rohit and South Africa’s Quinton de Kock, while the rest of the batsmen have to improve performance. There is a chance to replace Lasith Malinga, who is struggling with the poor form.
Mumbai’s team is not good in the spin department as compared to Super Kings because Chennai has experienced spinners like Harbhajan Singh. Apart from them, South African Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja are also performing well.
Kings XI Punjab: Rohit Sharma(C), Quinton de Kock(W), Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Lasith Malinga, JaspritBumrah.
Delhi Capitals: Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(W)(C), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Imran Tahir, Mitchell Santner, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur.
