CSK vs KOL Dream11 Prediction: There will be much more than just two points at stake when Chennai Super Kings take on Kolkata Knight Riders today. CSK will play for their pride after being already eliminated from the competition while KKR have everything to play for as they will look to get ahead of the pack with plenty of teams on 12 & 10 points. A loss here would mean that KKR can only reach to 14 points and with poor net run rate, they will have to depend significantly on other results. We will preview CSK vs KOL Dream11 contest.
Chennai Super Kings were successful in getting a consolation win against RCB in their last match. Bowling first, CSK never allowed powerful RCB batting lineup to get into their grooves. Clever changes in pace were the flavor of the day on a sluggish surface. Sam Curran took three while Deepak Chahar picked up a couple as RCB were restricted to a score of 145 runs. Chasing a below par total, CSK needed a decent opening stand and they got that from Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Later on, Ambati Rayudu also accompanied Ruturaj Gaikwad well for his first IPL half-century. He remained unbeaten on 65 runs as CSK sailed home by 8 wickets.
Kolkata Knight Riders faced a convincing defeat in their last match against Kings XI Punjab. Batting first at Sharjah, they lost their first 3 wickets for just 10 runs against a rampaging Mohammed Shami. After that, Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan combined for a counter-attacking partnership of 81 runs but once the Englishman was dismissed, there was another decisive collapse. In the end, some late blows from Lockie Ferguson took them to 149 runs with Shubman Gill top scoring for them with 57. In reply, KXIP found it very easy to maneuver the bowlers in a moderate chase. Varun Chakravarthy and Lockie Ferguson took a wicket each but it was all too easy for KXIP as they chased down the score with an over to spare.
In head-to-head comparisons, Chennai Super Kings have had an upper hand over Kolkata Knight Riders with a lead of 14-9 from 24 matches played between them. In last 5 matches, CSK have won 3 matches compared to a couple from KKR. In the first meeting this year, KKR defended a total successfully against CSK at Abu Dhabi earlier in the month.
Pitch and Conditions
Dubai has remained good for batting and pitches haven’t got significantly slower here. This match is likely to be played on the same surface which was used for SRH & DC game a couple of days earlier. Scores around 160-170 are expected and teams batting first have enjoyed more results in their favor.
