Team news & latest updates.
Chennai Super Kings.
Bravo’s absence is causing problems in the death overs for CSK in chasing. Last match also Deepak Chahar and Kuggelijin sweat a lot to turn the game aorund in last overs to get the team win. Introduction of Faf du Plessis played well for opening combo with Shane watson rather than Ambati Rayudu. Also we wonder why Dhoni is not using Kedar Jadhav as a bowler to make a impact in middle overs using his unorthodox bowling action.
Kolkata Knight Riders.
The team in current 1st position in the IPL 2019 table, so team & management will be looking forward to keep it that way after this game. Batting looks good, Andre Russell looks crazy good form, Bowling is back to track – looks like a perfect a good balance for a team. Harry Gurney replacing Ferguson worked very well last game he will be looking to perform against a major team. Opening partnership between Chris Lynn & Sunil Narine will be crucial for the game.

Dream XI teams.
CSK – 40%
KKR – 60%
If the KKR team in the sheet works in fields then there is no stopping them with any bowling lineup. All rounders of KKR is a delight both Narine & Andre Russell gives the Caribbean power to the team. CSK also have enough powerhouse to put the game around, death overs will be crucial who will they depend on in absence of Bravo we should see.
