After losing to the Rajasthan Royals, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will now play the Punjab Kings (PBKS) on April 30 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk. Notably, after losing their previous match, CSK have slid to fourth in the IPL Points standings, while Punjab are sixth on the standings with eight points from eight matches.
In their most recent encounter, PBKS allowed 257 runs against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). As a result, their bowling unit will be under a lot of pressure against CSK, as they will be eager to show themselves once more.
When it comes to batting, Artharva Taide rose to the occasion against LSG, which will improve his confidence in the next games. Meanwhile, CSK will be hoping that the duo of Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad continues to perform well, while Tushar Deshpande has also performed reasonably well at the death for the four-time champions.

So far, the surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium has favoured batters in the ongoing IPL 2023 season. Pacers have occasionally made a difference, but it has remained a hitting paradise. If the captain wins the toss, he or she may choose to bowl first.
