Kolkata Knight Riders – LWWLL
Knight Riders has won just two of their last five games. Despite Russell’s heroic performance in all the games so far other players have underperformed. Andre Russell needs more support from other players to ensure Kolkata’s victory unless it’s a run chase.
Chennai Super Kings – WLWWW
MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings is the team on the top of the points table. They have won six of their seven games so far. Their recent form is great as well. Batsmen and bowlers both have been contributing to the winning cause for the Chennai franchise.

Kolkata Knight Riders
Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (c)(wk), Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Harry Gurney, Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Yadav
Chennai Super Kings
Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c)(wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Scott Kuggeleijn, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur.
Sunil Narine (KKR)
Andre Russell needs more support from his teammates and probably his International teammate is the one he expects more from. Narine has had some injury issues this season. But he still remains a key part to the Kolkata set up. He can be the key man today with both ball and bat.
Suresh Raina (CSK)
Shane Watson struggles against leg spinners and that may mean early entrance for Mr.IPL. Suresh Raina will have the responsibility to steady the innings for Chennai. His contribution in the middle-overs will be key for the MS Dhoni’s team.
