CSK have been roaring high in the last two matches with a dominant performance against their opponents while KKR have been disappointing in their last two games against MI and RCB. CSK will be starting as clear favorites before the match but KKR might want to make a few changes tactically in their side to give a tough fight to MS Dhoni’s men.
