Chennai Super Kings will be looking to continue their winning run as they won against Mumbai Indians on Sunday and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday. They will be counting on the services of Dwayne Bravo, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Ambati Rayudu who were the star performers of the previous matches. CSK has acquired the number one spot in the IPL standings with 14 points in nine games. Chennai will aim to register their third victory of the second phase and retain the number one position.
Kolkata Knight Riders are also coming back from back-to-back wins against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians respectively. They will be facing a tough battle tomorrow against the table toppers. Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, and Andre Russell have been highly effective so far in the tournament. Eoin Morgan will want their in-form players to perform to stay in contention for the playoffs. KKR occupied the fourth spot in the points table after repacing MI.
