KOL vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Two of the most high-profile and most followed teams, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders are set for a faceoff in Abu Dhabi tonight. Both teams have two wins each s far but KKR’s wins have come in four matches while CSK have played 5 matches so far. Going into the match, both teams would know that they still haven’t played their best cricket and need to start firing if they want to have any chance of catching up with sides like Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians. CSK, who were positioned at the bottom of the table came soaring back to No. 5 with their 10-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab and they would like the run to continue while KKR, who have had an inconsistent start, would want their top players to start firing before it’s too late.
Indian Premier League Season 13
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings
Date – Wednesday, 07 October 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Pitch Report: We are seeing big scores at Abu Dhabi especially by teams batting first and chasing hasn’t proved easy so expect the captain to win the toss and bat first, but CSK may have other intentions considering the way they went about their chase in last game.
Team News KOL: KKR are one of the sides who had all their options available from the first game and they are fielding what they think is their best side. Their foreigners, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine and Pat Cummins are still not at their best but there is no chance of replacing them.
Team News CSK: Chennai played the same eleven even when they were losing so don’t expect them to change anything now that they have won their last game. However, all their paceman bowls in 130s and they could include a paceman who can bowl in high 140s considering KKR’s susceptibility against sheer pace.

Andre Russell: It seems the only thing missing from this year’s IPL so far is Russell going big and we expect the law of averages to work in his favor come this match. Russell will like CSK’s attack as they don’t have a bowler who can clock 140 or above. He can also pick a couple of wickets and is perfect candidate for your captain. He can fetch a good amount of points in KKR vs CSK Dream11 Prediction
Shane Watson: Both CSK management and we kept backing the veteran Australian because we know for a fact that when Watson starts connecting them it goes big. He backed his ability and had a massive impact in the last game. Now that Watson has one big innings under him, he will be high on confidence, watch out for him.
Eoin Morgan: The reigning World Cup-winning captain has been the best overseas player for KKR so far in the tournament. With Dinesh Karthik going through a bad patch the onus falls on Morgan to look after the middle order. There are voices growing that Morgan should be promoted as the captain of the team and that might be an extra incentive for him.
Faf du Plessis: He has been a run-machine for CSK and is always a terrific option as a captain or his deputy when it comes to Fantasy Leagues. He has 282 runs so far at a strike rate of 150. It seems almost impossible to get him out sometimes as he is equally good against both pace and spin.
Sunil Narine: Time may be running out for Narine the opener and this could be his last chance considering that if he doesn’t score against CSK’s medium-pacers then he will be demoted. But Narine can make an impact with both bat and ball and he likes playing against the Super Kings.
MS Dhoni: The captain of Chennai Super Kings has been involved in three unsuccessful run-chases and the feeling would be killing him. He is considered to be the best finisher the world has ever seen and he needs to start hitting a few. Believe it or not but MS Dhoni has never hit a boundary against Narine in all IPLs and we expect that to change today.
Rahul Tripathi (Credits 8): From opening the innings for some franchises Tripathi batted at No. 8 for KKR and showed his anger with a few lusty blows. Expect KKR to trust in his abilities and give him some more game time. A good pick in KKR vs CSK Today Match Prediction.
Deepak Chahar (Credits 8.5): Chahar has been one of the most consistent bowlers for CSK and he makes up for his lack of pace with superb control and the ability to swing the ball. Chahar knows that Narine will come after him and that gives him a chance of that early wicket.
