CSK vs KKR Betting Tips

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad finished as the leading run scorer in the 2021 IPL and is our tip for CSK’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja took 13 wickets last season and the spinner is well worth backing as CSK’s top wicket taker against KKR.
  • Captain Shreyas Iyer struck 519 runs during the 2020 IPL before missing a large chunk of last season through injury. He is our pick for KKR’s highest run scorer in this game. Spinner Varun Chakravarthy has taken 35 wickets across the last two IPL seasons and is a strong choice for KKR’s top wicket taker against CSK.
  • CSK have plenty of match winners in their side and we expect to see a strong all-round performance from Ravindra Jadeja. He is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.

The 2022 Indian Premier League gets underway on Saturday 26th March with 2021 Champions Chennai Super Kings going head to head with 2021 Runners-Up Kolkata Knight Riders in Mumbai.

This match begins at 19:30 local time.

CSK won the last meeting between the sides when they triumphed in Dubai by 27 runs to win the 2021 IPL in October of last year. With many of the same players in the side, CSK will be fancied by many to triumph.

KKR have a new captain and some exciting new recruits in their team for the 2022 tournament. They finished last season in strong form and will be looking to retain the momentum in this opening clash.

CSK Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

The 2021 Champions will be looking to begin this campaign with as many of their star performers from last season in their XI. England all-rounder Moeen Ali’s visa is cleared after a long delay and he will join the team today but won’t be available for the 1st match. We expect to see New Zealand’s Devon Conway make his CSK debut in this match. 

Just before the start of the season, MS Dhoni has handed over the captaincy to the all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja has been in terrific form lately jumping to the top spot in Test all rounders rankings after series against Sri Lanka.

CSK Key Players

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad - No player scored more runs than the CSK opener in last year’s tournament. He averaged 51.00 in 2020 and 45.35 in 2021.
  • Ravindra Jadeja - The all-rounder was brilliant for CSK last season and has been in fine form with bat and ball for India in recent weeks in the Test series against Sri Lanka.
  • Dwayne Bravo - The experienced all-rounder has now retired from international cricket but still has a huge amount to give to CSK. He took 14 wickets in last season’s IPL.

CSK Team Form

Last season, Chennai Super Kings ended the group stage with three successive defeats but then won both of their games in the knockout stage to lift the trophy.

CSK Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja(c), Robin Uthappa, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Shivam Dube, Mitchell Santner, Chris Jordan, Tushar Deshpande

KKR Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

There were plenty of changes to the KKR squad ahead of IPL 2022 season with the biggest change coming in the captaincy position. Out has gone Eoin Morgan with Shreyas Iyer now leading the side. Australia captain Pat Cummins will miss this game as it comes too soon after the conclusion of the Test series in Pakistan.

KKR Key Players

  • Shreyas Iyer - The newly installed captain of KKR has been in fantastic form of late. He hit unbeaten scores of 57, 74 and 73 in the recent India v Sri Lanka IT20 series.
  • Andre Russell - The West Indian all-rounder struggled for consistency last season but still hit a half-century and took a 5-wicket haul. He is always a potential match-winner.
  • Varun Chakravarthy - The right-arm spinner made his international debut in July of last year and is a very consistent wicket-taking bowler in this tournament.

KKR Team Form

Although they lost the final, KKR won the previous four matches in the 2021 IPL. They began that tournament in very poor form and will be looking to start better this year.

KKR Predicted Playing 11

Shreyas Iyer (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rinku Singh, Mohammad Nabi, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sam Billings (wk), Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy, Umesh Yadav

CSK vs KKR Betting Odds

The bookies are expecting a very tight game to begin the 2022 tournament with KKR marginal favourites. However, we are backing the holders to come out on top.

Who will win CSK vs KKR IPL T20 Match?

CSK are without run machine Faf du Plessis this season and the absence of Moeen Ali and Deepak Chahar will mean that they are not at full strength. KKR will miss a player of the quality of Pat Cummins for this game but they have enough in all departments to give CSK a very close game.

CSK vs KKR Top Team Batsmen

  • Jedi88

    I know CSK is the fav due to Dhoni factor and the stats but I do feel we cant underestimate KKR. Russell and Shreyas are players that have power to change the game. Somehow I feel predictions by experts will be proved wrong by KKR. Im curious though. #TeamKKR

  • Khushboo

    I definitely think CSK will win. Dhoni has trusted Jadeja with this, hope this works out well. Go CSK!

  • Priyam

    Dhoni's legacy will continue till the end. Go CSK!

  • Sakshi

    CSK should definitely win! Ravinder go buddy!

  • Kartik Kapila

    CSK will most probably win as they have Ravindra Jadeja who is an all rounder and well Dhoni is still in as a wicket keeper.

  • Aarif

    Csk batting is looking weak in this match because no Moen Ali in team, but they can beat kkr

  • Satyam Kumar

    CSK won this Match against KKR

  • Syedraju

    Kkr wil win this match

  • Nirmal Pradhan

    Yes KKR will win the IPL FIRST MATCH
