CSK vs KKR Match Preview

Chennai Super Kings will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 22nd match of the IPL 2024. The match is scheduled to take place at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on 8th April 2024.

CSK has dropped down to the 4th spot on the points table after 2 back to back defeats against DC and SRH. They will look forward to winning this clash at home but it will not be an easy task as KKR is going strong.

KKR is having a dream start to the season with 3 back to back victories. They are checking all the boxes with in-form batters and a decent bowling unit. They are at the 2nd spot on the table with 3 wins in 3 matches and a high net run rate of 2.518.

Let’s take a look at the dream11 team prediction as CSK and KKR face each other for the first time.

Top Batsman Picks – CSK vs KKR Dream11

  • Sunil Narine – Narine is back to opening position again, under the guidance of Gautam Gambhir. He smashed 85 runs in the last match and earned 157 fantasy points. We are expecting him to carry on the batting form in this match. He is the leading run scorer of the team with 134 runs at a strike rate of 206.15.
  • Rinku Singh – Rinku Singh has not been in the dream team in the last 2 games and has scored 54 runs so far but we are backing him to go big in this match as he was in brilliant form in both the matches against CSK last year. He scored half-centuries against CSK in both face-offs.
  • Shivam Dube – Shivam Dube is playing his role well this year and he is the leading run scorer of the team with 148 runs in 4 matches at a strike rate of 160.86. He has scored 221 fantasy points and was part of the dream team in 3 out of 4 matches.

Top Bowler Picks – CSK vs KKR Dream11

  • Deepak Chahar – Deepak Chahar not been very impressive so far but we are expecting him to do some damage to the KKR top-order in the powerplay. He has taken 4 wickets in 4 matches at a strike rate of 22.7.
  • Andre Russell – Andre Russell is still going strong and he is still the most crucial player of the KKR squad. In 3 matches, he has scored 105 runs at a strike rate of 238.63 and has picked 5 wickets at an average of 13.6. He has been part of the dream team in all 3 games.
  • Varun Chakravarthy – Chakravarthy finally regained his form a little in the last match where he picked 3 wickets against DC. We are backing him to pick more wickets on this Chennai track which favours the spinners.

Top Picks for Captain and Vice Captain – CSK vs KKR Dream11

  • Dream11 Captain Options – Andre Russell, Ravindra Jadeja
  • Dream11 Vice Captain Options – Ajinkya Rahane, Sunil Narine

Players To Avoid – CSK vs KKR Dream11

  • Ramandeep Singh – Ramandeep has scored 37 runs so far and he has not been part of dream team in the last 2 matches. We are not expecting a big knock from his bat in this match.
  • MS Dhoni – Dhoni is certainly a power-hitter player but from the fantasy games perspective there is nothing much he has to offer as he comes down to bat quite late in the game. In 4 matches, Dhoni has scored 38 runs out of which 37 runs came in a single match.
