KKR vs CSK T20 match preview

 

Match Preview


KKR is set to face CSK at Eden Gardens and it’s going to be an exciting affair of cricket. CSK will be looking forward to give out a statement to the likes of SRH and KXIP for the top spot whereas KKR will be eyeing to strengthen their case for Top 4.

CSK is the team to beat this season as they have been sensational in all areas. Their captain MS Dhoni is destroying the opponent with ease. On the other hand, KKR haven’t had a convincing season at all. They will be without their star player Nitish Rana most likely and it could leave a hole in their middle order.

We are going against the odds with a KKR win in this one.

Head-to-Head record
 

Overall: Matches – 17, KKR won – 6, CSK won – 11

Tip 1 (Team selection)

 

Consider these players while picking up the best ProSportsLeague XI for your team:

1. Chris Lynn 

Lynn hasn’t quite lived up to the expectations but he has the ability to turn it around any time. He has been kept quite for a long time and CSK bowlers might be the ones to face his wrath.

2. Shane Watson – People wrote him off because of the age factor but he has truly been sensational with both bat and ball.

3. Sunil Narine – Both CSK and KKR have a number of match winning all-rounders and Sunil Narine stands on the very top of that list.

4. Imran Tahir – Do keep an eye on him. If he starts, he can fetch you good points.

Tip 2 (Substitution)

Following players can be considered for substitutions during the match:

1. MS Dhoni 

MSD has been a joy to watch this season. He has made the difference by winning matches single-handedly.

2. Kuldeep Yadav – You can also consider this left-arm chinaman bowler who can bluff CSK players with his variations.

These are our tips for the game. The rest is up to your cricketing skills and knowledge of the game.
