After a cracking game between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore yesterday, it’s time for yet another exciting contest between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. Both teams look extremely strong on paper, but Chennai has a slight edge over Kolkata because they have registered more wins this season. So far, Chennai has lost just one match against Punjab while Kolkata has 5 out of their 7 matches. The powerful Kolkata line-up has not clicked yet, somehow!
In their last encounter, Chennai beat Kolkata by 34 runs at Ranchi. Kolkata has a strong bowling line-up, with Sunil Narine being their best bowler so far. Is he going to be the key player in today’s match as well? Yes, probably!
On the other hand, Chennai has a well balanced side, with all their players in decent form. Dwayne Smith, who is also running to grab the orange cap from Glenn Maxwell, is the key player for Chennai. He has been in sublime form and I hope it continues.
Kolkata will be playing this game for those crucial points to climb up the table, while Chennai would like to win this one to stay at the number one spot. I, S. Vaikundarajan, am all set to watch this thrilling match. Are you?
