Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings
33rd T20 Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata Time: 02:30 PM GMT, 08:00 PM IST
Take a ride from the airport to the Eden Gardens and you’ll find several hoardings from an Indian dairy giant stating ‘Yellow is unbeatable’. Such has been Chennai Super Kings’ performance, and dominance, that it’ll be naive not to agree with the statement. And the team they are bound to take on next, Kolkata Knight Riders, will be well aware of the magnitude of the challenge ahead of them.
Four totals north of 200 in eight games, four last over thrilling wins and after just two losses, MS Dhoni and his batch of 2018 are enjoying the comfort zone that only Sunrisers Hyderabad can claim to have. With six wins so far, CSK are just two more wins away from putting a foot in the playoffs. Their focus now shifts to consolidating their spot at the top of the table in order to have two cracks at making the final.
KKR have been patchy at best so far and find themselves on the fourth position after four wins from eight games. It’s crucial they start building the gap away from the teams at the bottom half of the table as both Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals eye a late surge and a quick dash into the playoffs. While KKR too have struggled with their death bowling, they’ll have to find a quick fix to another solution too – their bowling in the powerplay.
KKR have a set of tough games coming up and are entering a phase that’ll not only test their skill but also temperament as a team. CSK will present a stern challenge and there are no easy games left. The quicker they are in fixing some glaring glitches, the better chance they’ll have at making it to the next stage.
