CSK vs KKR Dream11 Team | Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Preview & Prediction | Fantasy Team & Team News
The two best teams in Indian Premier League 2019, so far, will fight for superiority tomorrow. Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings are tied at the top with 8 points from 5 games. However, KKR are higher up than CSK in the table due to a higher Net-Run-Rate.
Chennai Super Kings have the chance to topple Kolkata Knight Riders off the perch when they host them tomorrow. It is that kind of a match that none of the two teams would like to lose and lose the winning momentum with it. CSK and KKR are early frontrunners in the race to the IPL title and one of them will be pegged back tomorrow.
CSK and KKR have more in common than just the points in the table. Both the teams have been consistent in the tournament and have dealt with defeats well. What’s more, both the teams have some of the best spin bowlers in the tournament and they have helped their respective causes.
However, when they both come face to face tomorrow, the similarities will get cancelled out and a winner with that X factor will emerge.
KKR will expect Russell, their standout performer so far, to shine once more and give his team the win. CSK have quality players of their own and they will be happy to have brought in a player of the quality of Faf du Plessis. The South African was very impressive in his last match when he scored a fifty.
