IPL 2018: Match Between Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Chennai Super Kings
- Date: 3rd May, 2018
- Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata
- Time: 8.00 PM IST
Kolkata Knight Riders were on an away visit for some time now. They have had blended fortunes in the course of the last four matches. Presently, they return home with an eye to win matches and move towards affirming a playoff spot. Be that as it may, their homecoming could be spoilt by an impressive and solid Chennai Super Kings side which sits at the highest point of the focuses table. Kolkata will hope to set up a fine execution at the Eden Gardens and give Chennai an extreme test. Chennai Super Kings have been prevailing in this period of Indian Premier League and need only two more wins to everything except affirm a playoff spot. They will now hope to solidify the best spot so they can have two odds of making it to the last. Kolkata will get a kick out of the chance to stop their triumphant run.
Kolkata Knight Riders need to address their bowling issues and will hope for a return to form for Sunil Narine. Will there be any changes though?
Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Nitish Rana/Ishank Jaggi/Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Shubman Gill, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Mitchell Johnson
What are the changes that CSK can make to their squad for the game against KKR? MS Dhoni does not like much changes to his playing side so there may not be any or more than one.
CSK Predicted Playing 11: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Shardul Thakur/Asif, Lungi Ngidi
Dhoni himself is amidst the CSK's prosperity with his batting and captaincy impulses. Dhoni rolled out four improvements against Delhi and it demonstrated the group's profundity. Ngidi looked dependable and penetrative both in strategic maneuver and at the passing as the South African carried some venom into the pace office without harmed Deepak Chahar.
KKR are currently in fourth place but they know that they have been far from consistent so far this season. They have relied on their spin trio far too often to get them victories. Against a batting line-up that is perfectly equipped to handle the spin threat, they will need to find another way to ensure CSK don't run away with the game.
