Probable best batter Devon Conway

The dashing Kiwi opener Devon Conway is currently third on the IPL Orange Cap list. In eight matches so far, the 31-year-old has scored 322 runs at a strike rate of 137.02. He has four half-centuries in his last five matches and thus, will definitely be one of the players to watch out for in the upcoming match.

Probable best bowler Arshdeep Singh

The ace pacer Arshdeep Singh leaked a lot of runs in the last match but overall, he has picked up 14 wickets from eight matches. Against CSK batters, who are in extremely good form, Arshdeep can be a very useful weapon for the Shikhar Dhawan-led side.

IPL 2023 Match 41 Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Today’s Match Prediction

The home side would have the advantage because of the familiar conditions. They are better suited for what the pitch is going to offer. Defeating CSK at their home won’t be an easy task for PBKS and especially after their previous defeat against LSG. CSK will be expected to rule in this game and come out on top.
