CSK vs KKR Team Previews

Chennai Super Kings

The Super Kings' 2024 campaign started with twin successes against the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans. But they have since slipped to back-to-back defeats against the Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. They have an opportunity to get back on track against the Knight Riders.

Shivam Dube and Ajinkya Rahane are Chennai's leading run-scorers this IPL season with 148 and 119, respectively. Both have batted four times each. Dube has been used well as an impact player - and will likely be deployed in that role for this encounter as well.

Bowling-wise, the Super Kings can look to pace ace Mustafizur Rahman for more of the same. He has been prolific in the past few weeks, romping to seven wickets in three matches. This tally includes a fine four-for against the Royal Challengers in Chennai.

Kolkata Knight Riders

The Knight Riders have enjoyed an unbeaten start to their 2024 IPL campaign with three successive victories over Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore. This shows plenty of promise for their attempt to collect a third Indian Premier League title. They won the IPL in 2012 and 2014.

KKR have relished huge benefit from the batting form of West Indian all-rounder Sunil Narine, who has been utilised as an opening batter again this season. Narine's previous innings yielded 85 from just 39 balls - and included seven fours and seven sixes. He has also taken a wicket in each of his last three matches.

The Knight Riders also have another world-class all-rounder in West Indian recruit Andre Russell. He is their second-highest run-scorer and joint-highest wicket-taker. Russell has vast amounts of experience and is pushing for a berth in his country's squad for the T20 World Cup later this year.
