Kolkata, April 30: Two-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will get closer to a spot in the IPL 2015 Playoffs if they defeat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in tonight's Match 30 at the Eden Gardens.
CSK are on top of the table with 6 wins. KKR are at 4th (3 victories). The two met 2 days ago in Chennai where the home team successfully defended 134. KKR were off to a good start but faltered to go down by 2 runs in a last-ball thriller. (Who is Sarfaraz Khan?)
Now, KKR, with home advantage, will be aiming for revenge against the MS Dhoni-led side. CSK have played all their 7 matches so far with the same XI. And they are on a roll. A tough ask for KKR to stop them.
KKR have also been dealt a huge blow yesterday when Sunil Narine was banned from bowling his off-spinners.
