CSK vs KKR head-to-head in IPL: Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders stats, highest-run getter and last 5 encounters; Check details

Kolkata Knight Riders would be eager to grab a win to keep their IPL playoff chances afloat when they take on eliminated Chennai Super Kings on Thursday at Dubai International Cricket stadium. Eoin Morgan-led KKR are currently placed fifth with 12 points from 12 games. Win in the next two encounters will ensure a smooth passage, however, a loss would make it a curious case for them.

It won’t get too easy for KKR against CSK, who handed an eight-wicket thrashing to Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous outing.

KKR’s unsettled batting order is a point of concern for Morgan, who would hope that former skipper Dinesh Karthik produces his A-game when it matters most.

Nitish Rana, who shone in the win over Delhi Capitals came a cropper in the subsequent loss to Kings XI Punjab.

If the top-order fires, KKR will be better served as inconsistency has hurt the team in the course of the season as has the constant chopping and changing.

The bowlers have done a good job so far, with Tamil Nadu’s mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy being impressive and earning a spot in the Indian T20 team.

There is a lot at stake for the Knights and they would settle for nothing less than a big win.
