Kolkata Knight Riders will look to get back to winning ways as they host defending Champions Chennai Super Kings at the Eden Gardens on Sunday afternoon. With the home team desperate for a victory and the visitors looking to strengthen their position at the top of the table, this is certainly going to be a close contest.
The hosts were in a very good position about two games back as they had lost just one out of their five matches. However, they have lost two back to back matches now and that has given other teams a chance to catch up with them. The Knight Riders still sit at second position on the points table though. They still have the best net run rate in the league and that will play a crucial role towards the business end of the league. They made quite a few changes in the previous match. They dropped Chris Lynn, Harry Gurney and Sunil Narine for Joe Denly, Carlos Brathwaite and Lockie Ferguson. None of the moves played out well and that has given them some headaches as they gear up to face the high flying Super Kings on Sunday.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been in terrific form. They sit pretty at the top of the table with six victories to their name in seven matches. They have had their injury concerns but all their replacements have stepped up with good performances. That is something you can expect from
