CSK vs KKR: Chennai Super Kings have the chance to topple Kolkata Knight Riders off the perch when they host them tomorrow. It is that kind of a match that none of the two teams would like to lose and lose the winning momentum with it. CSK and KKR are early frontrunners in the race to the IPL title and one of them will be pegged back tomorrow.
KKR will expect Russell, their standout performer so far, to shine once more and give his team the win. CSK have quality players of their own and they will be happy to have brought in a player of the quality of Faf du Plessis. The South African was very impressive in his last match when he scored a fifty.
