KKR vs CSK injury update
KKR have no injury reported before the game while Sisanda Magala and Simarjeet Singh are unavailable for the CSK. Ben Stokes and Deepak Chahar have recovered from respective injuries and are available for selection. Speculations are there on MS Dhoni’s knee injury too but the skipper is likely to play.
KKR vs CSK: Six key players
KKR: (Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh and Varun Chakravarthy) Skipper Nitish Rana has been scoring runs consistently for the side while Rinku Singh has been doing the same down the order as KKR’s opening combinations haven’t worked. Varun Chakravarthy has been delivering with his bowling too as he picked up nine wickets as KKR’s leading wicket-taker.
There are other performers in the side as well with Jason Roy scoring a hard-fought 43 in his first game of the season and is likely to retain his opening spot while left-arm orthodox Anukul Roy bowled a two-wicket spell in the last game. Venkatesh Iyer earlier scored a century but has misfired in multiple innings as well.
CSK: (Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Tushar Deshpande) Devon Conway has hit back-to-back three half-centuries to take lead as CSK’s top run scorer. His opening partner Ruturaj Gaikwad is right behind him with 235 runs as he looks to get back in the Orange Cap race. Tushar Deshpande has shown his talent in absence of several key CSK pacers and has 10 wickets to his name now.
Among other key performers, Ravindra Jadeja is picking wickets consistently as well with 8 dismissals to his name while Ajinkya Rahane is scoring runs at No. 3. Shivam Dube has performed in patches and has a half-century to his name recently.
