CSK are gearing up to face KKR in the 22nd game at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, on April 8, in the moving caravan of the IPL 2024 (Indian Premier League). CSK aim to bounce back after two consecutive losses away from home against Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their batting lineup, apart from Shivam Dube, has been struggling, with Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane, and Daryl Mitchell failing to contribute significantly. The absence of Matheesha Pathirana and Mustafizur Rahman in the bowling department affected their performance in the last game, but Pathirana is likely to return for the upcoming match.

On the other hand, KKR, led by Shreyas Iyer, have been in red-hot form, winning all three of their previous matches convincingly. With strong spinners in their squad, KKR is well-equipped to challenge CSK, especially in Chennai’s spin-friendly conditions.

Pitch Report:

The Chepauk pitch displays wear and tear with a solid deck. As a result, it assists spinners as well as the pacers who have the variations at their disposal. Batters will have to fetch the runs from the relatively low bounce off the strip. On the weather front, there will be clear skies in Chennai on Friday evening, with temperatures hovering around 29 degrees. Humidity might be a factor for the teams as it does not seem to drop from 75 percent.

Ruturaj Gaikwad holds the key for the Chennai Super Kings in the batting department. Coming in as an opener he can build a strong foundation for CSK as he has done in the previous seasons.

Probable Best Bowler:

Deepak Chahar has the ability to generate swing early on and provide some early breakthroughs for CSK. He is coming out a long rehab and will look to compensate for the time loss. He has looked good in patches so far in the tournament and would be eager to bowl a match-winning spell.
