Guy Giles has picked out four tips to consider for your #BetYourWay as Chennai Super Kings face Kings XI Punjab in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
CSK vs KXIP betting tips and odds:
Chennai Super Kings to win
Kings XI remain in the playoff places despite seeing a four-match win streak ended by Rajasthan in their last match, and now face a tough test in a resurgent Chennai side.
The Super Kings have played their best cricket of the tournament since being eliminated, winning their last two matches against Kolkata and Bangalore – both playoff contenders.
Punjab have a history of folding under pressure, losing several matches this year from strong positions, and Sunday could see that happen again with a playoff place on the line.
Chris Gayle to score over 21.5 runs
Gayle has been the catalyst for Punjab’s late surge up the table, passing this mark in five of his six innings.
He fell for 99 in their last match against the Royals, and has also compiled two further half-centuries.
Chris Gayle to hit most sixes
It’s worth extending the above bet by backing Gayle to hit the most sixes on Sunday, with the opener having won or tied in this market in three of his six matches.
He smashed eight maximums on his way to 99 on Friday, and hit five in the match prior to that.
Ruturaj Gaikwad to score over 19.5 runs
Gaikwad has been a key part of Chennai’s recent resurgence, hitting 65* and 72 in their two recent victories.
This mark looks relatively low for a batsman of his quality in this kind of form.
