Kolkata Knight Riders would not imagine that they’d get a chance to take revenge of two days ago match defeat from Chennai Super Kings as KKR to face CSK tomorrow at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Both teams met in the 28th game of Indian Premier League in which Chennai beat Kolkata in an exciting thriller by 2 runs. Hence KKR will be eager to win it and get back on winning track.
It was really a bad show from Kolkata other day and they failed to chase 135 runs target against Chennai. Having big guns like Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa and Yusuf Pathan won’t make effect in the match if they are not able to play according situation.
Gambhir faced just one delivery in the match on which he tried to check MS Dhoni’s keeping ability and Dhoni passed the test. Gautam was not much responsible for that defeat but Robin was much responsible for the defeat as he was batting so aggressively and scoring runs at the strike rate of more than 200.
Everybody was aware of that spinners would play crucial in the match at Chepauk and it seemed that Uthappa didn’t know that as he tried to hit over the park on the very first ball of Ravichandran Ashwin. Despite ball, Uthappa returned to pavilion and left Kolkata Knight Riders in big trouble. Manish Pandey also did the same thing and joined Uthappa on the bench.
Ten Doeschate could have won game for KKR but it was difficult to hit Dwayne Bravo’s slow bowling variations and it was really difficult for him to hit 19 runs in the final over. Bravo was hero with the ball and won the match for CSK.
Chennai Super Kings are at the top of points table and they must be looking to win tomorrow’s clash against KKR. But this time they will be facing Kolkata Knight Riders in Kolkata and won’t be easy for Dhoni brigade to beat KKR at their home.
CSK batsmen were completely flopped in the last match against Kolkata and it might cause the game if bowlers didn’t bowl well. To be frank it was the bowlers for Chennai Super Kings who won the match whereas there were KKR batsmen who lost the match for time. So tomorrow’s match is going to be an exciting battle between two champion teams.
Current form suggests Chennai Super Kings will be favorite to win but Kolkata Knight Riders are strong at their home. As per Sports Mirchi predictions, KKR will be having 54 percent chances to win over CSK.
What do you say, who’ll win tomorrow CSK or KKR?
