PK vs CSK Prediction - Apr 16, 2021

Video Preview

Punjab Kings and the Chennai Super Kings are going to be playing in IPL 2021 after quite a contrasting start to their seasons. Punjab kings managed to win a thrilling high-scoring encounter against the Rajasthan Royals while Chennai Super Kings were found at least 20 runs short in their match against the Delhi Capitals.

Punjab Kings and CSK have played some of the most exciting matches in years gone by and we think we could have another good contest to enjoy this time around. The clash is also one of cultures and ideology. While CSK has opted to stray with its former great performers, some of them at the end of their careers, Punjab Kings has opted to fill its team with some of the most expensive acquisitions in the IPL auction.

Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings IPL 2021 is going to be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on the 16th of April 2021.

PK vs CSK Team Previews

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings have a very powerful batting lineup and that immediately makes them a dangerous team to come across. This is particularly true for a venue like the Wankhede where some truly ridiculous scores can be achieved.

Punjab Kings have a better chance to be able to keep attacking throughout the inning even if they lose a few wickets in the process. The other factor is the form of its leading players. Lokesh Rahul has four scores of 90+ in his previous four matches at the Wankhede. He just loves batting on this surface and it is a brave man who is going to bet against him from scoring more runs in this match.

With Mayank Aggarwal, Chris Gayle, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, and Shahrukh Khan also in the lineup, Punjab Kings have a lot of talent to work with. We saw what Deepak Hooda did in the previous match with a 20 ball fifty but don’t forget Nicholas Pooran either. He is one of the most exciting batsmen in this entire tournament.

Having Jhye Richardson bat at number seven is not ideal but more and more teams are backing their six batsmen to do the job for them.

Mohammad Shami, Jhye Richardson, Riley Meredith, Arshdeep Singh, and Murugun Ashwin make this a decent bowling lineup but one that can be put under pressure. Meredith and Richardson are playing at the IPL for the first time and they need to adapt quickly.

Chennai Super Kings

CSK would have been pretty to have got nearly 190 in the previous match against Delhi. For the most part, it did not look as if CSK would get anywhere close, to be honest, but Sam Curran’s inning provided the boost at the end.

Suresh Raina also played well to be able to get a fifty on his return to the IPL after sitting out the entire last season. Even at this late stage in his career, Raina is one of the most important players for CSK in IPL 2021. It appears as if CSK is going to struggle to get the runs needed without him.

Moeen Ali, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayadu, Ravindra Jadeja, and MS Dhoni are all formidable players. They definitely add depth on paper but the current form of these players is a bit questionable.

Dhoni, Rayadu, and du Plessis are all nearing the end of their careers, and depending on them to do the job can be risky. It is possible but we have not seen them do that so far. The bowling was a bit thin and reports suggest that Nigidi or Behrendorff are not going to be available for selection so more or less the same attack is going to be on show.

Where CSK has an advantage is experience and Dhoni being able to control the pace of the game. Expect Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, and Sam Curran to come back stronger with better plans.

PK vs CSK Toss Prediction

Winning the toss and chasing is going to be a huge advantage. Defending is difficult at the Wankhede as both teams found out in their previous matches and so the captain that wins the toss is going to want to chase.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather is going to be pretty good for cricket and the pitch is going to be absolutely flat. Everything points to another high-scoring match being played. Usually, these conditions are not where CSK is the most comfortable but we think their re-inforced batting lineup can come up with a few surprises.

The bounce in the surface helps the batsmen play their shots easily and it is going to require something really special for a bowler to be able to come away from this match with good figures.

A score of around 200 has to be the minimum that teams aim for batting first.

PK vs CSK Betting Tips

We are going to back Chennai Super Kings in this match and think they could get their first win of IPL 2021 in this match. Their batting lineup is longer than the Punjab Kings although not necessarily more powerful. We also think that Punjab kings have a bowling attack that could really be expensive when put under pressure. Winning the toss is going to be crucial, though, and so take that into account while placing your bets as well.

Bet on Chennai Super Kings to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Lionbet


    Total Runs in the Highest Scoring Over of the Match

    Over 19.5 (1.83)


This is an easy bet to recommend, especially at the Wankhede. It just requires on big over at any stage of the inning from any team and any batsman/batsmen to be able to win this bet. 19.5 is testing but certainly doable on the flat batting wicket of Mumbai.

  1. Funbet


    Half-Century Scored Chennai Super Kings

    Yes (1.30)


Funbet offers this betting market and we have made a lot of money on it! Any one player from CSK can get a fifty and win you this bet. The odds are not great but the chances of you winning are fantastic. Take free money when the top betting sites hand it to you on a platter.
