The match 33 of Indian Premier League 2023 season will have Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings facing off against each other at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. KKR will walk into this fixture on the back of three consecutive losses in one-sided contests. On the other side, CSK will play in Kolkata on the back of some consistent performances in their recent IPL matches. With Knight Riders struggling for results currently, Super Kings will have a better chance at winning their upcoming matchup in the City of Joy.
Pitches at the Eden Gardens help batters to play through the line of the ball and the small outfield provides value for strokes too. In this year’s IPL, this venue has already seen 204 and 228 first innings totals, so the trend is expected to continue when KKR and CSK go at it against each other on April 23.
Kolkata Knight Riders
The lack of runs at the top of the order has been a big issue of Kolkata Knight Riders in this IPL season, which has led to frequent personnel changes in the lineup as well. The middle order of Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, and Rinku Singh have scored runs this year for KKR, but it hasn’t been enough in recent matches. The fast bowling department for Kolkata is literally non-existent and the drop in form for the spinners has increased the problems for the team too.
SportsTiger Playing XI of KKR
Jason Roy, Litton Das (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana (c), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Shardul Thakur, Sunil Narine, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Kulwant Khejroliya (Potential Impact Substitute - Anukul Roy for Venkatesh Iyer)
Chennai Super Kings
Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have been building consistent partnerships at the top of the order for Chennai Super Kings. The runs from the openers have allowed the CSK middle order of Shivam Dube and Ambati Rayudu, in particular, to consolidate the innings in most matches. The bowlers for Chennai have started to put together better performances as the young fast bowlers like Akash Singh and Tushar Deshpande are improving with the ball day by day.
SportsTiger Playing XI of CSK
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravi Jadeja, Maheesh Theekshana, Tushar Deshpande, Akash Singh (Potential Impact Substitute - Matheesha Pathirana for Ambati Rayudu)
KKR vs CSK Fantasy Team:
Kolkata Knight Riders haven’t been playing their best cricket consistently in this year’s IPL. With that, Chennai Super Kings will be the favourites to defeat them in their upcoming contest at Kolkata.
