Chennai Super Kings take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 23rd match of the IPL 2019 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
It's the battle of the table toppers. Both CSK and KKR sit at the top of the IPL table with 8 points from 5 games having won four games each.
All eyes will be on Andre Russell who has been at his devastating best in this IPL so far. KKR had a comprehensive victory over Rajasthan Royals in their last match with Harry Gurney shining on debut. He helped KKR restrict RR to just 139 and then their top order continued the momentum to chase it down with 6.1 overs to spare.
With Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa hitting form, the KKR batting unit looks ominous. And it will be an uphill task for the CSK bowlers to stop them.
With the match taking place at the Chepauk, Dhoni would be looking to load the bowling unit with spinners. Their death bowling has taken a beating and with Russell in this kind of form, they need to up the ante big time. Harbhajan again will be the key.
What will boost CSK's confidence is that fact that they have won six out of the eight games against KKR at home.
We can expect an intriguing contest.
