The 53rd game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 between the Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) would provide a great exhibition of swing bowling. If the Punjab Kings come on top in the PBKS vs CSK clash, they could dream of a top-four finish in the tournament.

For the Super Kings, they have an issue to sort with their intent in the powerplay. Their captain Ruturaj Gaikwad has the fourth most runs (230) in the first six overs at an average of 76.67, and a strike rate of 146.50. But his partner in the opening spot, Ajinkya Rahane has struggled regularly in this IPL 2024, with just 113 runs in nine innings at a strike rate of 126.97.

Before the PBKS vs CSK clash, Prabhsimran Singh has been doing the job for Punjab Kings for an aggressive brand of the game. His strike rate of 161.32 is towards the top of the ladder, but he has managed only 171 runs in nine innings, which doesn’t allow Punjab to play the same style of the game for a long time.

Even the same story continues with Jonny Bairstow, who has been superb in the strike rate zone with 155.56 but has notched up only 126 runs in eight innings at an average of 31.50. Even if Shikhar Dhawan returns to the opening spot, the left-hander has managed only 99 runs at a strike rate of 123.75 before he was injured.

Both teams need to improve their first six overs batting in the PBKS vs CSK encounter.
