[PBKS vs CSK, IPL 2021, MATCH 8 LIVE SCORECARD]
Having earned a win in a last-ball thriller, something that K.L. Rahul’s outfit failed to do consistently in the latter half of IPL 2020, Punjab Kings will return to Wankhede Stadium as a much more confident unit against Chennai Super Kings on Friday.
The Super Kings will be keen on getting their act together to open the account. The side needs to get the combination right to attain the desired results. But Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men will be far from fielding the ideal combination, with pace duo of Lungi Ngidi and Jason Behrendorff missing out due to mandatory quarantine period after travel.
