With two wins from their first four games, KKR currently occupy fourth-place on the standings, and are still in with a shout at the IPL title this season. They will need to be in tip-top form to overcome CSK, who are currently high on confidence.
It was a day to forget for KKR as Dinesh Karthik watched his side trail the opposition by 18 runs. KKR were particularly dreadful in their bowling – one issue that has kept them backpedaled this term. In the batting unit, Tom Banton should be recalled to partner Shubman Gill, after Narine’s recent shit-show.
Still struggling to hit his previous high marks, Andre Russel should improve soon. His resurgence could spark the likes of Pat Cummins and Shivam Mavi into life – the former needed to pick early wickets with the new ball.
Having now gotten back on the winning train, MS Dhoni will be spurring his boys on to greater successes. The new opening combination of Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson are in superb form, putting on a good show in the previous match.
They have the likes of Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo finishing the innings with some timely runs. The bowling lineup of Shardul Thakur and Bravo will need to put their head in the game, as they simply had no gameplan last time.
