Head to Head


Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have faced each other in 28 IPL matches with Chennai winning 18 and Kolkata winning nine. At this venue, the record is skewed 7-2 in favour of the Super Kings.

Earlier in the season when these sides met at the Eden Gardens, it was Chennai who won by 49 runs. Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube and Devon Conway slammed fifties while Jason Roy’s belligerence wasn’t enough for the Knight Riders.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai Super Kings are 2nd in the standings ahead of this weekend’s matches with 15 points. They could confirm their spot in the top-two with a win, something which they have done in five of their last seven completed matches.

The form of Devon Conway (468 runs) has been a huge factor for Chennai’s upsurge while Tushar Deshpande (19 wickets) has been a revelation with the ball.

The men in yellow will hope they can squeeze in their qualification without having to take it to the last match.

Chennai Super Kings Team News


MS Dhoni had a knee injury in the last match and this could be a question of risking him or resting him for the upcoming battles.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata Knight Riders are 7th in the standings ahead of this weekend fixtures with ten points from 12 matches. They were ambushed by the Royals in the last match by nine wickets, complicating their chances.

Three batters have aggregated 200+ runs for Kolkata this season but none have gone beyond 258. With the ball, if not for Varun Chakaravarthy (17) and Suyash Sharma (10) they would have been knocked out long back.

The challenge for Kolkata now is to bounce back quickly from that stunning loss at the hands of the Royals in their last match.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


The Knight Riders could go in with an extra spinner and Anukul Roy may continue to be in the staring XI.
