The eighth match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings in Mumbai tomorrow.
In what will be a second consecutive match between two wicket-keeper captains, it is expected to be another high-scoring clash at the Wankhede Stadium.
Kings, who started their campaign on a winning note by beating Rajasthan Royals by 4 runs, will be targeting another victory despite their lacklustre record against Super Kings over the years.

Unlike Punjab, Chennai kick-started this season with a loss as captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his bowled failed to restrict Delhi Capitals last week. With fast bowler Lungi Ngidi having completed his mandatory seven-day hotel quarantine, it will be interesting to see which overseas player will sit out to accommodate him in CSK’s Playing XI.
