Head-to-Head


The Super Kings have won three of the last five matches between the two teams… but the Knight Riders have won two of the last three. 

Chennai Super Kings Form


After starting the season with two wins in a row, the defending champs have just lost their last two matches in a row.

They lost their last match against the Sunrisers by six wickets after posting just 165/5 off their 20 overs. Shivam Dube smashed 45 off 24 balls (two fours, four sixes at a strike rate of 187.50), but the next highest score was 35 from Ajinkya Rahane.

The Sunrisers raced to the win with 11 balls to spare and for the loss of just four wickets. Moeen Ali was the pick of the bowlers (2/23).

Chennai Super Kings Team News


The Super Kings need a major improvement with their batting and bowling if they are going to remain in the playoff places.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


The Knight Riders made it three wins on the bounce after beating the Capitals by 106 runs.

The Knight Riders piled on 272/7 off their 20 overs, Sunil Narine (85 off 39 balls, seven fours and seven sixes) and Angkrish Raghuvanshi (54 off 27 balls) adding 104 for the second wicket in just eight overs. 

The Capitals were never in the running after collapsing to 33/4 and were bowled out for 166 off 17.2 overs. 

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


The Knight Riders are in superb form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.

Verdict

I am backing Chennai Super Kings to win. I am also backing Shivam Dube to top score for Chennai Super Kings.

Sunil Narine is a good bet to top score for the Kolkata Knight Riders.
