CSK vs KXIP, Match Preview - Prediction, IPL 2018: R Ashwin to give a tough competition to his mentor MS Dhoni

The old rivalry teams Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab are going to play their next match in IPL season 11, one hand there is Kings XI Punjab continuously playing from the first season, however, CSK took a gap of two years.

In the current scenario, Kings XI Punjab has gone one with one win one loss whether Chennai has got both the games in their bag. R Ashwin used to play under MS Dhoni's captaincy from a long time in IPL, earlier he played in Chennai Super Kings and then he also joined Rising Pune Supergiants. Both teams had MS Dhoni as the captain and it will not be wrong to say that Ashwin has learnt a lot under his captaincy.

Now in this match, this is going to be the first time when R Ashwin will lead his newly joined Kings XI Punjab against his previous captain MS Dhoni and his root team Chennai Super Kings. MS Dhoni's CSK looks a strong contender as comparing to Kings XI Punjab, but we should not forget that Ashwin had played for Chennai for so many years.

Yuvraj Singh is most senior player of Kings XI Punjab and he is going to repeat the history of playing under Kings XI Punjab against Chennai Super Kings. Well that time as a captain and now as a player.
