Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match 49 Preview & Prediction

Chennai Super Kings would be up against the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 49th game of the IPL. Chennai comes into this game after a massive win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore against the run of play, but the side is already out of the contention for a spot in the next round. For the KKR it was yet another loss against the Kings XI Punjab and their entry into the next round would depend on the result of the next game which they can’t afford to lose.

For CSK it has been a disastrous season where they have failed to show their consistency. Their batting line-up has struggled right through the tournament and this is a big concern for them going into this contest. As far as KKR is concerned they will take heart from their last win against Chennai and shall like to use that as an inspiration in what is a do-or-die contest for the side.
