Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted XI vs Chennai Super Kings, IPL 2023: Will Johnson Charles Replace Rahmanullah Gurbaz?
IPL 2023: Here is what we think could be Kolkata Knight Riders' playing XI vs Chennai Super Kings -
Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders face four-time winners Chennai Super Kings in an Indian Premier League match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Sunday. While CSK will aim for a win to strengthen their hopes of sealing a play-off berth, KKR too will eye a victory and keep their outside chance alive. KKR will fancy their chances based on the presence of spinners, who have made an impact. How Varun Chakravarthy and leg-spinner Suyash Sharma bowl on Sunday could well decide the outcome of the match. The experienced Sunil Narine has been off-colour for a major part of the IPL season and will look to make amends.
However, it is easier said than done with Matheesha Pathirana expected to have a say in the proceedings with his mix of yorkers and slower ones. Jadeja could be one bowler the opposition batters would be wary of, as he hardly allows them time and is most often accurate.
The Knight Riders have to put behind the hammering at the hands of Rajasthan Royals on Thursday and approach Sunday's fixture with a positive frame of mind. A loss on the morrow could hurt their chances of advancing in the tournament.
