Chennai Super kings
Super Kings have been knocked out of the tournament and they have nothing to lose in this season. They are currently in the last position in the points table with four wins. In their previous game against RCB, they excel in both bowling and batting. Gaikwad’s comeback against RCB has failed to utilize the last three games, is favorable to the side. Sam Curran’s impressive all-around performance is the only positive outcome on their side. Deepak Chahar’s bowling performance at death overs improves against RCB. They had played against Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi earlier in the tournament and lost this match by ten runs.
Possible – 11
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf Du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Narayan Jagadeesan, MS Dhoni(C& WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Monu Kumar, Mitchell Santner.
Kolkata Knight Riders
Knight Riders have played the first half of the tournament exceptionally. But their second half performance has dipped drastically. Their top-order occasionally failed in the powerplay overs, which left the middle-order batsman under pressure in every match. Rana’s questionable top order leaves all the force under Morgan at the middle-orders. Varun Chakravarthy’s silent killer spell destroys the team’s leading batsman in this tournament. His impressive performance earns him a national tour to Australia in the upcoming time. Tripathi will replace Siddhesh lad. Russell’s injury affects their all-rounder slot. Knight Riders are in a must-win situation to qualify for playoffs. If they lose this encounter, they have to wait for other teams results for their playoffs.
Possible – 11
Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Siddhesh Lad, Dinesh Karthik(WK), Eoin Morgan (C), Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna.
Though KKR didn’t perform well in the last game, they are expected to bounce back with a solid performance against CSK. Let us not forget both the teams consist of spectacular players and are led by world cup winning captains – MSD (2011) and Morgan (2019). Though CSK will put on a good fight, KKR might come out on top.
Chennai Super Kings will be having an edge to win this clash.
