Preview – CSK vs KKR GoodGamer Fantasy Contest
After suffering a crushing eight-wicket defeat at the hands of Kings XI Punjab in their previous encounter, Kolkata Knight Riders run into Chennai Super Kings, who are out of the playoff race for the first time in the history of the competition.
Eoin Morgan, the KKR captain, pinned the responsibility for the loss to KXIP in Sharjah on the side’s batsmen. KKR could only manage 149 on the board despite an 81-run stand between Morgan and Shubman Gill.
“Disappointed with the partnerships, thought we could have scored more (runs). Our fate is in our own hands. I think Gill scoring runs and restricting KXIP till the 11th or 12th over, those were the positives,” Morgan had said at the post-match presentation on Monday (October 26).
KKR, who have lost four of their last six games, have 12 points and need to win their remaining two matches to stay in contention for a spot in the final four. A loss will all but confirm their exit because of a poor Net Run Rate (-0.479).
On the other hand, CSK, who beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight wickets on Sunday (October 25) in Dubai, will be looking to up their game one more time and seal yet another consolation victory.
