Two top teams of the Indian Premiere League, Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings will lock horns to snatch the second semifinal of CLT20 2014 at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad on October 2, 2014.
The match starts at 8 p.m. India time.
KXIP place in the semis was probably predicted and equally justified given that they have played some great cricket as a team in recent times. If they win this one, George Bailey and his team will look ahead, to heal the wounds of the IPL.
The Chennai Super Kings in the semis isn’t something new, but yes, they will agree of not having been at their best in recent times. They got confirmed for the semis only after Perth Scorchers won against Lahore Lions.
Kings XI Punjab had a hard time against Barbados Tridents in their second match, while Chennai Super Kings lost their first match to Kolkata Knight Riders, making them squared up sides.
For Chennai Super Kings, the big things are on MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina, while on the other hand, it will be Glenn Maxwell and David Miller for KXIP scheme of things.
Then there is also the ever dependable Virender Sehwag, who has been helping Kings XI Punjab in the best times.
In terms of previous meetings, two time IPL winners Chennai Super Kings surely have an edge, but Kings XI Punjab is a team that has been in formidable form in recent times.
