PunterPolls Pick: Kings XI v Chennai, 17 May

Today's PunterPolls pick of the day is…

Kingx XI Punjab

Why?

Kings XI playing its first game in Dharamshala of this season against the defending Super Kings. This game is one of the crucial games of this IPL season as this may decide the fate of four teams as far as playoff round is concern.

Chennai is back in form and after that final ball empathetic wins over KKR they must be high in confidence. On the other hand its do and die situation for Kings XI, if they win they will be still in the race of final four though the chances are very bleak.

By the time I am writing this, Punjab have won the toss and elected to field. Gilchrist and Ryan Harris are back into the team. Chennai most successful opener for this season Du Plessis is not playing today’s game but Morkel is back.

Overall this is going to be and existing day for cricket and everyone expecting a thrilling game.

My vote for this match goes to Kings XI for the reason that CSK teams batsmen’s are close finishers but if they won’t get a good start they might be crumple.
