Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders
April 10, 2018 – 8pm
Match preview: Chennai Super Kings is set to face Kolkata Knight Riders at M.A. Chidambram Stadium. Both CSK & KKR are coming back from wins in their first match of VIVO IPL 2018. These two franchisees have a huge fan base and a match between CSK and KKR means nothing but sheer entertainment.
Chennai Super Kings won against Mumbai Indians in a spectacular fashion as Dwayne Bravo’s quickfire 60 proved just enough to secure a win for the men in yellow. It wasn’t convincing in any manner. On the other hand, KKR won by 4 wickets with seven balls remaining.. KKR had to chase 177 and Sunil Narine went all guns blazing as soon as the 2nd innings started. Useful cameos came from Nitish Rana and captain Dinesh Karthik as KKR went top of the table.
CSK-KKR is a rivalry that grew over the years as both franchisees resonate with a huge fanbase and success in IPL. Chennai Super Kings will be thinking of replacing Mark Wood as he was quite expensive in the match against Mumbai Indians. Other than that, it’s going to be a wonderful contest of cricket.
CSK-KKR have faced each other 17 times in which CSK has emerged victorious 10 times out of 17. KKR have won 6 times and 1 match was abandoned due to rain.
This KKR side is better than CSK on papers without-a-doubt. However, we are going against the odds by predicting a CSK win.
