IPL 2020: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Preview, Probable XI, Head-to-Head and Fantasy 11

Kolkata Knight Riders clinched a brilliant 10-run victory during the last game that took place between these two sides in IPL 2020.

CSK vs KKR Preview

MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders in the 49th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The two sides will be up against each other at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on October 29 (Thursday) from 7:30 PM (IST) onwards.

This game comes with a lot of importance for the Kolkata-based franchise as they currently hold the fifth spot in the Points Table. With a victory in this match, they will climb up to the fourth position to improve their chances of qualifying for the playoffs. On the other hand, CSK will play for pride as they are already out of the contention of making it to the knockouts.

Last time when these two teams met, KKR registered a nail-biting victory by ten runs at Abu Dhabi.

CSK Players

With four wins in 12 matches, CSK occupies the end spot in the Points Table. MS Dhoni and co is also the first franchise to get ruled from the IPL 2020, despite registering a good victory in their previous game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. They have given a chance to several youngsters in their last few games and will stick with them in this clash as well.

Just like their opponents, the Kolkata-based franchise will also take the field with the same playing XI.
