The world is ready to witness yet another big battle of the IPL 2022. The 11th match of the Indian Premier League 2022 is scheduled to be played between Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings on Sunday, 3rd April 2022 at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. We are posting safe, accurate, and 100% secure today’s match prediction for all matches of IPL T20 free.
Chennai Super Kings had never lost two early matches in a row in any edition of IPL but this had happened in IPL 2022. After losing to KKR in the first match, they lost the second match against the new team of this tournament, Lucknow Super Giants. Punjab Kings had a good start to IPL 2022 and won the first match against RCB but were beaten by Kolkata Knight Riders in their next match.
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS REVIEWS
CSK will be under pressure in this match as they had lost both played matches but they also have some plus points. This is just the start of IPL 2022 and CSK is a team that can handle the pressure properly. The batting order of Chennai had performed well in the previous match as they put 210 runs on the board. The batters of CSK like Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, and Robin Uthappa performed well. Uthappa was the highest run-scorer with 50 runs to his name. Shivam Dube scored 49 runs while Moeen Ali could manage to score 35 runs. Ruturaj Gaikwad is the only batter from the CSK side who had failed to score some runs in both previous matches.
We had seen flat batting pitches in IPL 2022 till now and these pitches are very tough for the spin bowlers. Chennai has some good spin-bowlers in their squad but they had not played a role that many of us were expecting. We think that this is the failure of the management of Chennai Super Kings as they did not pick the best bowlers from the IPL 2022 auctions. Tushar Deshpande and Mukesh Chaudhary were the leading bowlers in the previous match. Dwaine Pretorius also performed well and picked two wickets against 31 runs in four overs. Adam Milne will be available soon and this may help the bowling department of Chennai.
PUNJAB KINGS REVIEWS
Punjab Kings lost key wickets early and this was a key reason why they lost the match against Kolkata. We are not saying that the batting department of PBKS is poor. They have the best batters and hitters in the T20 format. Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Aggarwal are opening the batting innings followed by Liam Livingstone, Raj Bawa, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Raj Bawa is a young Indian talent and hard hitter of the ball. Odean Smith and Shahrukh Khan are also available for batting in the middle and last overs. We think that the openers of Punjab did not deliver what they were expecting and the middle batting order also remained under pressure.
There is a lot of potential in the batting order of PBKS and we think that they are not delivering it. We are confident that they will get the momentum in a couple of next matches. The bowling department of Punjab Kings is led by Kagiso Rabada, who is South African fast bowler and had a good record in IPL. He was just brilliant in IPL 2021 and that was a key reason why he was picked by Punjab from IPL 2022 auctions. Arshdeep Singh had not been good in both previous matches. Rahul Chahar has been good so far but Harpreet Brar is still struggling to get the right line and length.
Match: CSK vs PBKS, Indian Premier League 2022, Match 11.
Date and Time: 3rd April 2022, 7:30 PM IST.
Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
TOSS PREDICTION IN TODAY’S MATCH PREDICTION
The toss is going to play an important part in the result of every match of IPL T20 as we had observed in the previous editions. According to toss prediction, the team who will win the toss will elect to field first as defending had been difficult in the most recent matches of IPL.
PITCH REPORT AND CONDITIONS
The 11th match of IPL T20, 2022 is going to be held at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. We had observed in the previous matches played here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting in early overs. The track has a good amount of pace and bounce which allows the batsmen to the good cricketing shots but this ground also has big boundaries which can be a plus point for the bowlers. A score of 190 plus seems to be a par score.
WEATHER REPORT FOR TODAY’S MATCH
The weather forecast for Mumbai is good for this cricket match. There are almost no chances of rain in the region and we are hopeful that we will have a full match to enjoy.

PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLE BEST BATTER OF THE MATCH: SHIKHAR DHAWAN
Shikhar Dhawan has missed two opportunities to get a big score under his belt and he will be keen to make up for it in the upcoming fixture. The left-hander endured a soft dismissal after starting well and he can be a match-winner once he gets into the groove. Dhawan has been in prime form in the last two seasons of IPL and he knows how to get back to his golden touch.
PROBABLE BEST BOWLER OF THE MATCH: RAHUL CHAHAR
Rahul Chahar was one of the positives for the Punjab Kings in the previous fixture and certainly, he has been growing leaps and bounds. The leg spinner extracted a lot of spin from the track and picked up two important wickets of Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana to keep his side in the hunt. He finished his spell with 2 for 13 in his 4 overs with one maiden and will be looking to continue his good performance.
WINNING CHANCES OF TODAY’S MATCH FOR THE BOTH TEAMS
Chennai Super Kings is overall a strong team when we compare with Punjab Kings. They have the best players in the t20 format of cricket.
