Chennai Super Kings:

MS Dhoni has exhibited his excellent talents and has provided plenty of entertainment in the later overs in the game in this IPL. Hussey and Dhoni have so far scored 450 and 298 runs respectively from nine games each.

Kings XI Punjab coach Darren Lehmann said the strength of Chennai lies in their batting. He added form of opener Michael Hussey and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni with the bat is a cause of concern for Kings XI Punjab.

Team Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni (C) (W), Akila Dananjaya, Albie Morkel, Srikkanth Anirudha, Ankit Rajpoot, Baba Aparajith, Ben Hilfenhaus, Ben Laughlin, Chris Morris, Dirk Nannes, Dwayne Bravo, Francois du Plessis, Imtiyaz Ahmed, Jason Holder, Michael Hussey, Mohit Sharma, Murali Vijay, Nuwan Kulasekara, R Karthikeyan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Ronit More, Shadab Jakati, Subramaniam Badrinath, Suresh Raina, Vijay Shankar, Wriddhiman Saha.

Kings XI Punjab:

KXIP desperately need this big win. Piyush Chawla is the only recognized spinner who often plays in the Kings XI Punjab side. But, the player too had a very quiet IPL so far with only a few wickets under his name and Punjab need their main spinner to contribute more.

Adam Gilchrist has made poor run collection for this season.

Team Kings XI Punjab: Adam Gilchrist (Capt), Mandeep Singh, Luke Pomersbach, David Miller, Manan Vohra, David Hussey, Piyush Chawla, Praveen Kumar, Harmeet Singh, Bhargav Bhatt, Parvinder Awana, Azhar Mahmood, Bipul Sharma, Siddharth Chitnis, Aniket Choudhary, Manpreet Gony, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Shaun Marsh, Dimitri Mascernhas, Nitin Saini, Sandeep Sharma, Rajagopal Sathish, Sunny Singh, Paul Valthaty.
