Time – 7:30 PM IST

Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

CSK VS KKR Match Preview:
 

Chennai Super Kings played a near-perfect game the other night against KXIP. Everything went into place for MS Dhoni-led side the other night. The bowling, batting, and the fielding. Shane Watson with the team's backing played an unbeaten along with his opening partner Faf du Plessis to secure a 10-wicket win. 

The bowlers were pretty good as well. Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur is an effective bowling pair. They not only take wickets but also contain runs. It is unlikely that CSK will change the winning team for this match. 

Kolkata Knight Riders lost their previous game to DC chasing a record total of 229. They were in the game for most of the chase which will certainly give them the confidence they need in the batting department. Eoin Morgan has been consistently scoring runs and giving KKR the best chance to win the match. Rahul Tripathi's batting position is a concern that needs to be discussed. 

Judging the bowlers after a match in Sharjah is a bit harsh especially when they have done well in the previous games. Kuldeep Yadav could come in the playing XI considering a slow Abu Dhabi pitch. 
Chennai Super Kings will be confident side after the last game and Kolkata Knight Riders is an opposition they have historically dominated. It will be a closely contested game.
