The Chennai Super Kings would hope to seal their playoff qualification as they take on the Kolkata Knight Riders. Both teams so far had contrasting seasons as Chennai has been at its consistent best while Kolkata continues to deal with countless inconsistencies in various departments. In their previous fixture, the Super Kings took down Delhi Capitals in a clinical performance while the Knight Riders suffered a massive loss against Rajasthan Royals.
The Chennai Super Kings have made a massive turnaround from their dismal 2022 season and are on the verge of clinching the playoff spot on the back of countless top-notch performances. The CSK batting has been a massive strength with stars like Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane and Shivam Dube playing at an incredible level. Whereas with the ball, Matheesha Pathirana's magical form has single-handedly carried an average bowling attack to a new level.
On the other hand, the Kolkata Knight Riders have stayed alive on the basis of a few massive performances after which the team has fallen flat once again. The Kolkata batting has failed to find a consistent batter who will hold one end and bat deep into the innings and set a platform for finishers Rinku Singh and Andre Russell. Whereas the bowling attack has leaked a lot of runs, especially the pacers while spinners have done a great job.
