The extravaganza, Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) has already begun going on with the flow in Indian stadiums. The top and pop players are showing their performances with seven matches down and dusted.
The eighth match of the cash-rich league is to be played between the Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings, who have renamed themselves from Kings XI Punjab for the ongoing season.
CSK had a bad start for the season as they lost in the hands of Delhi Capitals in their initial match. After having a poor 2020’s season, the target of CSK must be back-to-back triumphs to drag the team to the playoffs.
On the other hand, PBKS, who, after glancing at the lastly held season’s performances, began their IPL 2021’s journey with a victory against the Rajasthan Royals.
As of now, KL Rahul-led men will be looking to the second win whereas, CSK will try their best to approach their first. It is possible that Dhoni and co, known as the Daddy Army, will be compensating the first defeat with a victory versus PBKS in Match 8th.
