It seems like Chennai Super Kings will start as favorites of this battle.
If Kolkata Knight Riders bat first:
Prediction Score: 180+
Eden Gardens is Kolkata’s favorite place to bat as it’s their home ground. If they bat first, there are good chances of getting a high score. Dinesh Karthik, the captain of KKR has played good in this season and he will try to put a maximum on the scoreboard. Even if they score somewhere around 180, it will be tough to chase for CSK because the crowd support and the spin bowling of KKR are going to help them a lot.
If Chennai Super Kings bat first:
Prediction Score: 190+
CSK captain MS Dhoni, will not settle for anything below 190 against KKR. CSK is a great defender as well as a great chaser also. If they score more than 190 in this game, it will create lots of pressure on the opposition team. As a result, KKR will keep losing wickets in chasing a high score.
If we have to pick one best team among these two, then it will surely be CSK, the reason being they have been playing excellent so far and the whole team delivers their best in the ground. Each individual has their role to play and they do it so well. Kolkata might face some issues in the bowling department as they have not done anything great with the bowling yet. Don’t miss to watch all the fun!
