Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings Predictions

- Kolkata Knight Riders’ Nitish Rana has scored 80 & 57 in 2 of his last 3 matches.
- Kolkata Knight Riders have lost their last 2 matches.

- Chennai Super Kings’ Moeen Ali has scored 36, 46 & 26 runs in his last 3 matches.
Head to Head
The Chennai Super Kings have won three of their last five matches against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Last season they won one each with the Super Kings winning the last match by six wickets.
Kolkata Knight Riders Form
The Kolkata Knight Riders are fifth on the Indian Premier League table with one win and two defeats in their three matches. After winning their first match against the Sunrisers in Chennai, the Knight Riders have suffered successive losses to the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers.
Their last match against the Royal Challengers ended in a 38-run defeat in Chennai. After two early wickets by Varun Chakravarthy, the Knight Riders struggled to contain RCB’s strong middle order which included AB de Villiers.
The 204-run total achieved by the Royal Challengers was the highest thus far in Chennai this season. No Knight Riders batsman managed to get a big score as they attempted to chase down the total with Andre Russell top scoring on 31 runs.
They only managed 166 in their 20 overs which wasn’t a poor batting effort but the bowlers will need to improve.
Kolkata Knight Riders Injuries & Team News
Shakib Al Hasan has yet to fire in the opening three matches. He could be replaced by West Indies’ Sunil Narine. Their other three internationals in Andre Russell, Pat Cummins and Eoin Morgan have all performed in previous matches.
Chennai Super Kings Form
The Chennai Super Kings have won their last two matches after losing their opener. They are second on the table due to a superior net run rate.
The Super Kings batted first in their last match against the Rajasthan Royals, scoring 188 runs in 20 overs. Faf du Plessis was the top scorer on 33 runs with contributions from Moeen Ali (26), Ambati Rayudu (27) and Dwayne Bravo with a quick-fire 20 off 8 balls.
Moeen Ali backed up his good run scoring form with a superb spell of bowling, taking 3-7 in three overs. The Super Kings dismissed the Rajasthan Royals for 143 to win by 45 runs.
Chennai Super Kings Injuries & Team News
The Chennai Super Kings under the captaincy of MS Dhoni have generally been very consistent. They don’t make many changes unless absolutely necessary. They are likely to be unchanged for this fixture.

The Chennai Super Kings are backed to make it three wins on the spin. The in-form Moeen Ali is tipped to top score and win the man of the match award due to his ability to contribute with bat and ball.
For the Knight Riders I am looking no further than the young Nitish Rana. He has scored 50+ in two of his last three matches and is backed to top score for the Knight Riders.
