Today’s match prediction for KKR vs CSK is as followed:-
Toss Predictions for KKR vs CSK:
The Pitch report for Eden Gardens is that the track is considered as one of the better batting surfaces although spinners tend to come into action as the match wears on. Spinners have enjoyed bowling here in IPL games as well. The team that wins the toss would like bowl first.
If KKR bats first (predicted score will be 150-170 )
Knight Riders will be planning to attack the bowlers as they have players like Uthappa, Narine and Rana at the top, they will be the batsmen KKr will be relied upon to see a keen total in the first ten overs and after that, Gill and Karthik stabilizes the runs in the middle-order and it all depends on Andre Russell’s contribution to the side.
If CSK bats first (predicted score will be 160-180)
CSK looks with experienced line-up where all the batsmen are 30+ aged and bats with calmness without taking any risks, if they lose early wickets the pressure comes to the middle-order, the key in the Csk batting unit would be Rayudu and Watson as their pair has been consistent and Watson has a hundred to his name against his previous franchise so we can expect a big partnership from these two. Also, Sam Billings will be an X-factor for the visitors.
Kolkatta Knight Riders:-
There is no confirmation of Chris Lynn to play, so we predict Narine to open with Robin Utthapa, Knight Riders will use their regular spinners Piyush Chawla and chinamen Kuldeep Yadav as they can turn on the pitch to get some important wickets of the set batsmen in the middle overs. Kamlesh Nagarkoti will be expected to open the attack and also Hary Gurney and Lockie Ferguson can be considered the key strike bowlers along with the world experience in their bag.
KKR Predicted Playing XI:-
Narine, Uthappa, Rana, Gill, Karthik, Russell, Braithwaite, Chawla, Nagarkoti, Kuldeep, Gurney.
Chennai Super Kings:-
Csk has not many newcomers in their squad this season so we will be seeing the same team which played last season and won the title on a comeback note after 2 years. There will be a stance on Du Plessis opening or Rayudu will open along with Watson. Dhoni might go with 3 spinners as the condition is spin friendly, so we predict Jadeja, Harbhajan and Tahir to be featured in the playing XI.
CSKpredicted playing XI:–
Rayudu, Watson, Raina, Billings, Jadhav, Dhoni, Bravo, Harbhajan, Chahar, Thakur, Tahir.
Key Player Battles:-
Russell vs Bravo
It will be a stunning battle between the West Indians as both play a similar position in their respective team and their job is to smash as many runs in death overs and get key wickets for their teams. Russell a giant six-hitter and Bravo the slow ball trapper. It will be a big thing to watch when Bravo will bowl to Russell and will be the awaited moment of the match. We predict Bravo to win the battle.
