The Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to take on MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday night at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Looking at both sides, the Dinesh Karthik led Kolkata Knight Riders hasn’t been playing at par with the quality of the players the team holds. Chennai Super Kings on the other side are high on confidence thanks to the 10-wicket win against Kings XI Punjab.
While Kolkata Knight Riders are facing a lot of criticism for below-par shows despite having a star-studded team with the likes of huge Caribbean hitters like Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, the young Shubman Gill and the World-Cup winning Captain Eoin Morgan, best to believe the party is yet to begin.
Chennai Super Kings, currently placed sixth on the points table looks like it has found its mojo back in all departments, including the batting which earlier seemed to be not-the-CSK-types.
As this season hasn’t been the best starts for Chennai Super Kings in this Dream11 IPL, let’s see what they bring to table against the two-time champions, KKR. Expect this match to be an exciting and highly intense clash between both the Indian wicket-keeper lead sides, here’s a list of the top 5 players to watch out for.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 key players we should watch out for when Kolkata Knight Riders lock horns with Chennai Super Kings:
1. Sunil Narine
The Caribbean all-rounder hasn’t been in fine touch ever since the conclusion CPL. Everyone knows the inevitable destruction he causes once on the roll while opening up for his team.
But so far, he has only scored 27 runs in 4 innings, which has put the captain in dilemma regarding his spot in the team. He is expected to make a strong comeback to make-up for his spot in the team and that puts him one of the main contenders for this list.
