IPL 2019: Match 55 – CSK Looking to Maintain Pole Position With a Win

IPL 2019: Match 55 - Chennai Looking to Finish Strong Against Deflated KXIP


In the 55th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL), it is Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Chandigarh. Things for Kings XI have gone wrong for yet another year; they won 4 out their opening 6 matches, they managed 2 victories in next 9 games. The poor run ended their hopes for qualification, which is a huge disappointment for their fans.

Chennai, however, remains in a strong position. First to qualify for the playoffs this season, Kings now have a chance to finish at the top spot. It remains to be seen whether Chennai will approach this game with caution and rest their big guns or go all out on attack as they normally do.

Team News

Chennai have released their reserve wicketkeeper-batsman N Jagadeesan to represent his club. Apart from that, MS Dhoni might be a prominent candidate who’s likely to miss the game through a back strain and illness. However, Dhoni in a post-match interview claimed that he is recovering well so it remains to be seen whether he will feature or not.

For Kings XI Punjab, no news has surfaced about any injuries and it looks like that the same team which lost to Kolkata Knight Riders might be fielded once again.
