The first match of the day will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab which will be hosted by Chennai. Like all the other matches of this season it is to see if this gets to a closely contested match or an one sided match as Chennai is currently on the 1st place of the point table with 16 points 4 ahead of the team in 2nd place with only 6 rounds left to be played before semi-finals. Kings XI Punjab on the other hand still have a long way to go to think about that as they have only 8 points with 7 matches to be played including this one. They are on the 6th place of the point table with 4 wins and 5 losses in the 9 matches they have played so far in this season. With the two back to losses in last two matches Punjab is back on their inconsistency. While Chennai is counting on for their 6th consecutive IPL semi-finals which is almost at their grasp and if they can win this one they will be very much confirmed to be playing on semi-final on this season as well.

Match Timings: Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab 45 T20 match will begin on Thursday, 2nd May 16:00 local time(India) – 10:30 GMT
Head to head: Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab have played 10 matches in IPL where Chennai won 4 matches and Punjab won 4 matches. The last match which was the only time they played in this season was won by Chennai by 10 wickets.
Chennai Super Kings: Chennai Super Kings have already got their one feet at the semi-final after a clear 4 point lead from the 2nd positioned team in the point table. Still with the uncertainty of T20 cricket and IPL you can never say when what happens as things changes on a blink of eyes. Chennai has a remarkable run in this season and they have their best streak so far in all IPL seasons they played with 6 consecutive wins, surpassing the 5 consecutive wins in 2009 IPL. Their batsmen are on supreme form in last 2 matches they even didn’t need to use 5 of their batsmen as they only lost top 3 wickets in both the matches. But in bowling at the same time they have to worry a bit as not all the bowlers are consistent. But Chennai would be confident to convert the bowling form as well and confirm semi-final as early as possible.
Kings XI Punjab: Punjab on the other hand have lost the last two matches and to Kolkata Night Riders and Mumbai Indians. So their all time problem of inconsistency is back again with two back to back losses after two back to back wins. The main problem is when they perform with the bat bowlers let them down and when the bowlers perform well batsmen let them down. So they need to do well in both the departments if they are to win against inform Chennai. The main task would be to stop Michael Hussy who has been in a remarkable form and giving Chennai a good start in almost every matches at the opening. So it is to see if Punjab can stand up against the winning streak of Chennai or Chennai extends their record run.
