CSK vs KKR Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Chennai Super Kings will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 49th game of the IPL 2020. The match will be played on the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.

Picking up early wickets, chocking the opposition with their spin in the middle overs and then getting off to a breezy start, Chennai Super Kings’ victory over RCB was a typical Chennai performance we were used to witnessing. They arrived, but it was a little too late as Rajasthan Royals victory over Mumbai Indians shattered CSK’s hopes of making it through to the playoffs.  Now with their hopes quashed, Chennai would want to salvage their pride by winning the remaining two games. Ruturaj Gaikwad played a brilliant knock in the last game and MS Dhoni will be hoping that this youngster continue sparking in the reaming games as well. Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu either ways have been CSK’s two best performers. In the bowling department, Deepak Chahar and Sam Curran have delivered on most occasions. On Paper, CSK looks as good as anyone will they be able to replicate their performance is yet to be seen.

Kolkata Knight Riders on the other hand have completely lost momentum in the latter half of the tournament. They’ve lost 4 off their last 6 games and face a must win situation against Chennai. The problem for KKR has been their batting which has completely collapsed in the last few games. Apart from Eoin Morgan, none has delivered consistent performances. Nitish Rana played a brilliant knock against Delhi but couldn’t back it up with another good one. Same goes with Shubhman Gill and Rahul Tripathi. Dinesh Karthik is going through a horrific tournament. Things won’t be easy for KKR but they’ll have to overcome the obstacles if they’re to taste glory. The pitch will definitely favour KKR more and they’re expected to emerge victorious against MS Dhoni’s men.

CSK vs KKR Toss Prediction

Dubai has been a wicket which has favoured teams batting first but with dew around, captains face a tricky situation at the toss

Weather Report

The weather at Dubai will be hot and humid with temperatures hovering around the high thirties.

Pitch Condition

The match will be played on the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. During the first half of the tournament, batting first was the most feasible option considering the slow nature of the pitch but with dew around, teams chasing are having the best batting conditions in the last few games. It’s a tricky call for the captains. You need to put on additional 20 runs to cover up for the dew. 180 will be a good score here.

Chennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

The last game was a near perfect game for Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team. We don’t see Chennai Super Kings making any changes to their playing XI. 

CSK Key Players

  • Faf du Plessis: Faf du Plessis has looked class apart in the tournament. He is the most consistent Chennai batsmen and will hold the key for them against Kolkata
  • Ruturaj Gailkwad: The move to promote Gaikwad at the top finally paid dividend as he played a scintillating knock against the RCB. He is expected to carry on his good run
  • Sam Curran: Sam Curran has given his all for CSK this season. Scoring runs or picking up wickets, he’s been terrific for them. 

CSK Team Form

CSK is the first team to be knocked out the IPL 2020. However, they showed great skills in the last match and is expected to fare better against KKR

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing 11

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

KKR is really struggling with their batting but they’re most likely to stick with the same playing XI. If there has to be a change, it’ll be Andre Russell replacing Pat Cummins but that’s very unlikely.

KKR Key Players

  • Eoin Morgan: Eoin Morgan has been the most consistent player for Kolkata in the last few matches. He has played several quick knocks in the tournament but hasn’t quite exploded to get a massive score. With Dinesh Karthik  going through a horrible time, he might promote himself up the order which will give him an opportunity to play more number of balls and get a big one.
  • Nitish Rana: Nitish Rana made an impressive 81 against Punjab in IPL 2020, showing signs of a man returning to form .He can be backed to play another big knock against CSK
  • Sunil Narine: Sunil Narine is the most valuable player in the KKR set up. With the bat or with the ball, he’s a definite match winner. He’ll be very difficult to handle for CSK on a sluggish pitch

KKR Team Form

KKR has lost 4 off their last 6 games and face a must win situation.
