Will Chennai Super Kings, who have been marginalized in the IPL 2022 points table, be able to make a comeback during the second leg of the tournament? Will Chennai get back on track with the match against Punjab? Only time will tell, but Ravindra Jadeja’s team will have to take every match seriously to make it to the playoffs from here. On the same lines, Punjab Kings have failed to strengthen the team in the first half of the tournament with new captain Mayank Agarwal.
Neither Mayank’s bat is running on the lines of the previous season, nor are other batsmen able to show special feats. An important match is to be played between the two teams on Monday.
