KOL vs CSK Today Match Prediction Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings Who will win Today 7 October

KOL vs CSK today match prediction: After back to back wins, KOL have suffered a loss at the hands of Delhi Capitals due to some poor tactical decisions which were widely criticized by many fans and experts around the world. They keep persisting with Sunil Narine at the top of the innings which is not doing any good for them. One of the brilliant batters in fielding restrictions in Rahul Tripathi came in at #8 after being picked in the team as a specialist batsman in the last game was one shocking move to say the least.

CSK have hit back at critics in a grand fashion as they thrashed KXIP by 10 wickets chasing 179 runs as Shane Watson smashed 83 runs from 53 balls to repay the faith that MS Dhoni had on him. The ever consistent Faf Du Plessis has been continuing his good form in this season. CSK have a clear advantage over KKR as CSK have won 14 games to KKR's 8 win.

KOL vs CSK Dream11 prediction for today’s match

In today IPL match prediction, let us go through the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams.
Strengths
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)
Their bowling attack has come good in the last 3 games after pathetic show in their first game. The leader of the attack in Pat Cummins has been magnificent with the new ball and teams are finding it difficult to hit him. The Indian fast bowling pair of Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagerkoti has been top notch.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
MS Dhoni would have been pleased with the way Shardul Thakur bowled at the death in the game against KXIP. The new ball pair of Sam Curran and Deepak Chahar are doing a very good job and not giving easy runs to the opposition. The powerful opener Shane Watson has hit form after 4 flop shows.
Weaknesses
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)
The way Dinesh Karthik is using his bowlers haa been nothing short of disappointment. The person form of Dinesh Karthik has been worrying sign as well. They need Eoin Morgan to bat up the order and Dinesh Karthik to go back to his preferred position at #6.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
The lack of wicket takers in the middle overs is something that might haunt CSK at death overs. Their new ball bowlers are not giving wickets up front which leave the spinners to do bulk of the job in the middle overs
