KKR & CSK targeting their third win in IPL match
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be targeting their third win in the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 as they square off at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Wednesday.
Both the teams have won two games so far in this edition, but KKR occupies a better spot in the Points Table Dinesh Karthi-led Kolkata Kolkata Knight Riders started their campaign with a loss against Mumbai Indians (MI). But they bounced back in style, registering two successive wins, beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). While they lost their fourth game of the season against Delhi Capitals (DC), KKR will take confidence from the spirited performance of Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan and Rahul Tripathi as they take on CSK.
The MS Dhoni-led unit, on the other hand, will be seeking to continue their winning run. While CSK kicked-off their IPL 2020 season with a win over MI, they lost their next three games – RR, DC and SRH. However, CSK dished out a dominating show with the bat against KXIP, winning the game by 10 wickets to register their second win of the season.
The comeback of Shane Watson in that game will give them the much-needed boost for this tournament Coming to Match 21 of the season, CSK will be seeking their second successive win while KKR will want a winning return and these are the players who could make a difference to the fortunes of their respective teams.
Although Eoin Morgan is yet to score a fifty in the IPL 2020, England’s World Cup-winning captain is playing his role to perfection. While his 42 not out and 32 not out against SRH and RR played a big role in KKR’s victories, his 18-ball 44 against DC kept KKR in the hunt. The lefthander will once again be expected to come good with the bat.
