KKR vs CSK Dream11 Prediction

Indian Premier League, 2019 | Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings, 29th Match | KKR vs CSK Who Will Win

It is time for the 29th match of IPL 2019 and the two teams contesting in this game are the defending champions Chennai Super Kings and the two-time title holders Kolkata Knight Riders. This would be the second instance when these two teams will collide against each other in this edition of the competition.

Kolkata Knight Riders

The Knight Riders have suddenly lost the momentum they were in as they have slumped to two back-to-back loss against CSk at the Chepauk by 7 wickets and against the Delhi Capitals last night by 7 wickets.

After starting the tournament with high spirits by winning the opening two games handsomely, the gruelling they have taken in the last two games have definitely made the management scratch their heads.

Batting looks decent but it is the bowling which has let them down. Prasidh Krishna who is the only frontline Indian pacer has looked completely out of sorts right from the first game, while the overseas recruit Lockie Ferguson has looked good in bits and pieces.

Andre Russell has been their brightest start with both bat and ball. He has the most runs for KKR this season and has the maximum wickets as well. The three wins they have secured this season was only because of Dre Russ who has been a one-man army for KKR thus far.

They need to fill their potholes to go beyond in the tournament and it should not be only Andre Russell every time taking them over the line.

Chennai Super Kings

Win after win after win, this has been the story for the reigning champions so far in this season. The ‘Old Men’ definitely know how to deliver on the big stage and for a team full of proven performers, this was always going to be a walk in the park.

Although, it was a dramatic show in their previous game of the competition which saw CSK snatching a 4 wickets win on the very last ball of the match courtesy Mitchell Santner’s imperious six down the ground.

Nothing could be taken away the way Chennai Super Kings have been playing so far and they would be eyeing their 4th win on the trot in this game. They defeated KKR at home in Chepauk and defeating them in the front of their home crowd will give CSK even more confidence.

The surface at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata

It is easy to chase targets on Eden’s surface as the boundaries are short and the stroke-makers find it easy to clear the ropes. The track has been good for batting this season and could be the same in this game as well.

Average 1st inn score in IPL: 158

Average 2nd inn score in IPL: 144

KKR vs CSK Dream11 Teams

Players to watch out KKR:

Andre Russell has been the top performer for KKR with both bat and ball this season as he has scored 30 runs from just 6 innings and has scalped 6 wickets. Piyush Chawla is the second most successful bowler this season with 4 scalps to his name at an economy rate of 8.01.

In the batting department, Robbie Uthappa, Nitish Rana will be the key figures. Robbie has  211 runs from 7 innings, while Rana has 180 from same no of innings.

Doubt over the fitness of Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell.

Players to watch out CSK:

Barring skipper MS Dhoni, none of the batsmen in this setup have crossed the 150 runs mark. MS Dhoni has 214 runs to his name from 5 innings, whereas Faf du Plessis has looked the second most consistent batsmen so far for CSK with 104 runs from 3 innings.

Suresh Raina averages 47.210 against KKR and has hit a century to his name against this opponent. Shane Watson averages 33 against KKR and has got a hundred to his name from 14 innings.

In the bowling department, Deepak Chahar and Ravindra Jadeja will be the safest bets as they share 17 wickets between them so far. Imran Tahir is also a safe bet.
