CSK vs KXIP match stats and Preview - IPL7

CSK is playing against KXIP in the 3rd game of the Pepsi IPL season 7. The game promises out to the battle of equals as both teams are equally balanced in terms of batting and bowling.

This year, Chennai Super Kings would be lacking a few of their most reliable players, including Aussie mainstay Michael Hussey and South African Albie Morkel, shortly after losing them in the players' auction with the replacements like New Zealand blaster Brendan McCullum and South African Faf du Plessis, CSK look to be formidable.

On the bowling entrance, West Indian leg-spinner Samuel Badree could prove to be a important player due to the fact of his immense confidence after completing the third highest wicket-taker in the recent World T20. Up against them are the Kings from Punjab.

The franchise, which through to the past season seemed lost in the celebrity occasion, have managed to instill balance and sheen to the side by simply making some smart purchases in the players' auction. Driven by Aussie George Bailey, Punjab pulled off quite a masterstroke by snapping up India Test discard Virender Sehwag. Even though he is no longer in his best but on his day, the Delhi-dasher is an fascinating game-changer capable of mortifying opponent attacks.

"No doubt, he will have a big influence. Having him around the group is a great thing. It will be great for him to go out and play with freedom," Bailey had stated ahead of the tournament.

An additional masterstroke by Kings XI Punjab at the auction was the purchase of Mitchell Johnson. The Aussie pace bowler is in the tremendous form form of his life and is particularly  to be worth every one of the Rs 6.5 crore that the KXIP splurged on him while in the auction.

Apart from, the team also been able to bring back Aussie batsman Shaun Marsh. Marsh has a good track record in the IPL and could persuade a significant cog in the KXIP wheel. Given the strategy both teams coordinate on paper, it guarantees to become fight of the equals.

Match Prediction and tips: 

On the paper CSK are the favorites in this game. Never forget the strength of KXIP in the form of Glenn Maxwell, George Baily, David Miller and last but not least Virender Sehwag. If either one of the batsman be able to score quick runs, no doubt KXIP can become a huge opponent for CSK. 

Having said that, KXIP is lacking their strengths in the bowling.Apart from inform Mitchell Johnson none of the bowlers are in good form.160-170 runs is not sufficient for KXIP to give a hardcore challenge for the CSK. CSK can easily chase the above target if they had to bowl first.
