Match Preview

The sore point for CSK is their death bowling. The effect of their stellar performances dulls as they find themselves in a crucial fix due to the same.

KKR Achilles’ heel is their bowling front whether the death or powerplay overs. Not even a single wicket has come their way during the powerplay in the last 4 matches and just 7 wickets in powerplay off 8 games so far.

KKR’s will face some tough games starting today that will test both their skill and temperament. Winning against CSK is no easy feat, the need to fix their glitches is all the more important.
