What to expect:
The clouds that were hovering over Mohali a couple of days ago have disappeared and the temperatures are slowly climbing towards the back end of 30s. It was pretty hot at the ground on the eve of the game and this being an evening start, the pitch is expected to be slightly slower due to the heat in the first half. However, it should still be a decent track for batsmen.
Kings XI Punjab(KXIP):
Ashwin and Co. could give opportunities to the non-regulars with them failing to advance to the next round. The likes of Karun Nair, Sarfaraz Khan, Harpreet Brar, Ankit Rajpoot could get a game. Mohammed Shami had a small niggle in his neck muscle last game, although he did come back to bowl an over. With the World Cup in mind, he could be rested.
Lokesh Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Mandeep Singh/Karun Nair/Sarfaraz Khan, Nicholas Pooran(w), Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin(c), Murugan Ashwin/Harpreet Brar, Ankit Rajpoot, Arshdeep Singh, Andrew Tye
Chennai Super Kings(CSK):
One definite change CSK have been making in away games is replacing Harbhajan Singh with a pacer. It is likely that they will stick to that formula as the pitch in Mohali is not known to assist the spinners. The team has qualified for the play-offs, but with a bit of uncertainty about finishing in the top two, it is highly unlikely they will rest key players to test their bench strength.
