Updated on: May 13, 2023 9:14 pm IST
In a highly anticipated match of the 61st game in the IPL 2023, the Chennai Super Kings will face off against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on May 14.
KKR’s campaign suffered a significant setback after a heavy defeat against the Rajasthan Royals.
The defeat not only deprived KKR of crucial points but also had a severe impact on their Net Run Rate (NRR), making it extremely challenging for them to revive their chances of qualifying for the playoffs.
For KKR to have a fighting chance against CSK, their openers Jason Roy and Rahmanullah Gurbaz needed to provide a solid start.
Nitesh Rana and Venkatesh Iyer, who have shown flashes of brilliance but lacked consistency in playing match-winning innings, need to step up and deliver under pressure.
The poor form of Andre Russell with the bat has been a major concern for KKR, and for them to challenge the Men in Yellow at their home, Russell needs to fire.
