KKR v CSK Expert’s Voice

CSK clinical at the end again. The juggernaut keeps rolling. They now have two wins in two back to back away games. This time Raina puts his hand up to see his team through. The team management will be delighted to see different players making match winning contributions. It only makes them more formidable in their title defense. The match was set up by the Imran Tahir in the middle overs when he broke the back of KKR middle order in a skillful and courageous display of leg spin bowling.

Chawla is given the ball for the final over, but he starts off with a quicker delivery outside off to Jadeja, which the latter guides towards third man to start the over off with a four. It's a stroll to the finish line thereafter, with two singles and a brace coming off the next three deliveries, as Chennai Super Kings collect their seventh win in eight games to continue their stronghold at the top of the points table!

KKR v CSK Expert’s Voice


Raina has played some good innings this season but hasn't stayed there till the end to see his team home. No matter which way this turns, CSK will be richer for their premium middle order player getting to spend time in the middle in a pressure situation.

Gurney is brought back to bowl his final over, but the Englishman perhaps suffers his first major jolt of the season as he is clobbered for three consecutive fours by Jadeja, with 16 runs coming off the over. Suddenly, the job is all the easier for the Super Kings. CSK need 8 to win off 6.

FOUR! A hat-trick of fours, this time Jadeja flicking a full delivery from Gurney towards the square-leg fence! Poor lines from Gurney so far. CSK 151/5

IPL 2019, KKR vs CSK, Today's Match Preview: After suffering back-to-back defeats, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will aim to regain the lost momentum against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Eden Gardens of Sunday.

There's a concern within the team that they are over-dependent on star all-rounder Andre Russell to get the job done and to his credit, the West Indian has been phenomenal in the tournament. But other key players from the side need to step up and perform consistently.

The spin bowling department of the Knight Riders also should make it count when it matters the most. The likes of Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine definitely have the ability to turn the game around but so far, they have been not doing enough.

For Chennai Super Kings, things have been going as per plan. They sit on top of the table, with victories in six matches out seven. One of the big positives for the MS Dhoni-led side is that they are not dependent on one player. The team has a good number of experienced players in their ranks and they have been consistent with their performers.

Dhoni has been leading his side well with good selection calls, depending on the match conditions and also with perfect bowling changes. Unlike his cool demeanour, he lost his temper last game against Rajasthan where he walked to the middle of the ground and confronted the umpire over a no-ball call.

Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings Full Squad

Kolkata Knight Riders Team 2019 Players list: Dinesh Karthik (c/wk), Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Nikhil Naik, Joe Denly, Shrikant Mundhe, Nitish Rana, Sandeep Warrier, Prasidh Krishna, Lockie Ferguson, Harry Gurney, Matt Kelly, KC Cariappa and Yarra Prithviraj.
