A yet another delight is coming down your way tomorrow. Chennai Super Kings have flown to Kolkata to face Knight Riders at Eden Gardens tomorrow. The clash will begin at 08:00 PM Local.
Last time both the teams came face to face, it became a last-ball affair. Something similar is expected again. CSK tops the points table with 6 wins in 8 matches while the hosts have grabbed the 4th position with 4 wins and 4 losses.
Both the teams are coming from winning their last encounter and would like to keep their momentum going.
So, let’s take a look at the key players-
For CSK, the key batters are Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, and MS Dhoni. A Rayudu is amongst the top scorers of the tournament and holds the orange cup. MS Dhoni and S Raina on the other hand, have 200+ scores so far. MS Dhoni is in a never-seen-before form and has scored three fifties till now!
In bowling, both the debutants, L Ngidi and KM Asif, were wonderful. KM Asif took 2 wickets and was a little expensive while L Ngidi managed one wicket with an economy of 6.50. Apart from these two, R Jadeja, Shane Watson and Harbhajan Singh have also bowled economically well in the tournament.
For KKR, the key batters are C Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, and Andre Russell. C Lynn was the top scorer for KKR in the last match and played a match-winning knock. Robin Uthappa has failed to produce big innings but his little cameos help KKR in getting a favorable start.
In bowling, Sunil Narine, K Yadav, and A Russell are crucial. Andre Russell was the leading wicket-taker in the last game and took 3 wickets while Kuldeep Yadav managed just 1 wicket. Sunil Narine has 8 wickets so far.
