New Delhi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) ‘s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face KL Rahul (Punjab Kings) of Punjab Kings today in the 8th match of IPL 2021. Chennai team lost to Delhi Capitals in their first match. While Punjab defeated Rajasthan Royals in a very exciting match. Now both these teams will face each other at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai this evening. Let’s take a look at those players who can shine in today’s match.
Chris Gayle, the king of T20 cricket, played an excellent innings of 40 runs against Rajasthan in the last match. Gayle proves to be the most lethal for any team. Today, against CSK, Punjab have to win their second consecutive match in IPL 2021, then Gayle will have to show something amazing.
Faf du Plessis
For the last few years, Faf du Plesis, who has been incharge of CSK’s opening for the last few years, will once again have the responsibility of giving his team a good start. Faf had not done much in Delhi and he soon got out and returned to the pavilion.
Last year’s Orange Cap winner and Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul is one of his most trusted players. Rahul played a 91-run match-winning innings against Rajasthan in the last match. In today’s match, Rahul will once again be expected to do the same.
If CSK’s team lands on the field, then everyone’s eyes are on its captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni). Dhoni’s form was not very special last year and he was dismissed for zero in the first match against Delhi. Today once again everyone will expect Dhoni for long sixes.
Like Dhoni, Suresh Raina is also supporting CSK from Season One. Last year, Raina suddenly withdrew from the IPL, but this year he made a spectacular comeback by playing an innings of 54 runs in the first match. Raina will be expected to perform well in today’s match.
