CSK vs KKR: IPL 2024 team news

Chennai Super Kings missed Matheesha Pathirana, to an injury, and Mustafizur Rahman, who had returned home. The availability of neither is confirmed for this match. If it remains that way, Moeen Ali will play again, and Chennai will go in with an all-Indian pace attack.

Angkrish Raghuvanshi made a stunning fifty on his IPL debut, and is likely to retain his place. In Nitish Rana, Vaibhav Arora, and Suyash Sharma, Kolkata Knight Riders have enough Indian cricketers to use as the Impact Player.

CSK vs KKR: Prediction for today’s IPL match

The KKR power hitters will be tested if CSK roll out the traditional Chepauk slow turner, but the KKR spinners will be more than a handful too. For once, a touring side will take field as slight favourites in Chennai.
