Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – Indian T20 League 2020, Match 53

In the all-rounders’ department, there is only one player who can provide good returns for the investment you make on him, which is Sam Curran.

Match Details:

The 53rd match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Chennai and Punjab at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.

Preview:

After having a shaky start to their campaign, Punjab have managed to stage a wonderful comeback and have again become a part of the list of contenders for the playoffs. Chennai, on the other hand, had what looked to be a good start to their run in the T20 League this season. But the lack of young blood and active international players has been seen in their performances, as they are pitted at the bottom of the points table. They have been knocked out of the tournament in the league stages itself for the first time in the history of this tournament.

The way the points table stands at the moment, every win and point that the teams like Punjab can get into their bag would be a boon for them. And, this match makes a perfect opportunity for them to capitalize on Chennai’s weaknesses and the momentum they have to walk back with a win under their belt.
