This edition of IPL has not been easy for both the sides till now. Both the team struggled with their perfect combination of 11 players to get best results. While KKR faced Captaincy change in mid season.
Chennai Super Kings performance is a big disappointment for the fans and management as they failed to qualify for playoffs for the first time in 13 years. As they are already out of playoffs race their won’t be any pressure and additional expectations. They might look for the change in the squad. Whereas KKR is still in the race of Playoffs, they desperately need to win all games in order to qualify for playoffs.
CSK had performed brilliant in their last encounter with RCB, Ruturaj starring with his maiden IPL fifty. On the other hand KKR could not defeat KXIP in their last game. KL Rahul led KXIP thrashed KKR with 8 wickets in hand. KKR could not defend 150 total. Now Eoin Morgan and Co. needs to win every match now from here. KKR has badly struggled with top order. Kolkata’s top order hasn’t performed consistently till now.
