This is our first article of head to head clash series. We start with CSK VS KKR. Both CSK and KKR got an average start in this IPL 2020 season. Till now both teams won 2 matches.KKR is known for hard-hitting in the middle Whereas Csk is dependent more on its upper players. This Year both teams face each other on 7 October and on 29 October. Both the teams have some weaknesses and some plus points. Today we will discuss both of them and moreover, you will get player battle to watch and my prediction
Head To Head KKR Vs CSK
When it comes to winnings KKR is far behind. KKR won only 8 matches whereas CSK won 14 matches and 1 match had No result.
Positive Of Csk
1. Opener Is Back In Form
In the last Match, CSK records the biggest victory of this season as they chase down 179 without a loss of a single wicket. This means their openers come back strongly. Before this match, Shane Watson was struggling with his form as he scored 52 runs in the 4 innings. But he comeback like a champion in the last match where he scores 83 runs. Hope he will continue his form.
2. Held Opponents less than 200
CSK is known for held opponents under 180 and chases the total. Out of their 5 matches, they held their opponents 4 times under 180. but unfortunately didn’t win the all-time.
Positive Of KKR
1. High Depth in Batting Order
KKR has the highest depth in the batting line up. They have plenty of hard hitters like Andrew Russell, England Captain Eoin Morgon, Dinesh Kartik which can hit the boundaries with such ease and win a match from any difficult situation.
Weak Points Of Csk:-
1.Slow start at Powerplay
CSK Lost the 3 Matches from 5 because Csk starts so slow in the powerplay which causes their middle order to hit from the 1st ball and ultimately cause a loss of the match. Their average powerplay score is 44 runs. This is because Shane Watson is not getting the up to mark. But in the last game, CSK chases the 179 without a loss of a single wicket.
2.Lack of hard-hitting at the middle order
CSK lost 3 matches due to a lack of hard hitter at the end. Now with the back of Ambati Raydu and DJ Bravo, the side looks more prominent at both batting and bowling department.
Weak point of KKR:-
1. Weak at chasing big totals:
Chasing a Big total is difficult as the team had to hit from the very first over and if 1 or 2 wickets falls it becomes more difficult to chase. Although KKR has plenty of quality All-rounder but they failed to chase a big total. They failed to chase 195 against MI in their first match and they also failed to chase 228 against DC but the best part is that they try till last as while chasing down 228 they reached at 210. If the total is small they can chase down easily like they chase down 142 against SRH in their second match.
2. Poor opening partnership
When Chasing a big total, the opening partnership is very crucial as they provide the main reason behind their losing at chasing against big total is their poor opening partnership. Their opening partnership has proved to be very poor as till now they crossed 20 runs only once. This is due to the poor performance of Sunil Naraine as he scored only 27 runs in 4 innings.
Player Battle To Watch In KKR Vs CSK
I think the main battle in this game is between CSK bowlers and KKR hard hitters batsmen. My Player battle to watch is of KKR Young Opener Shubman Gill who is a technically a good batsman and between CSK Swing Bowler Deepak Chaher
My Prediction Of KKR Vs CSK
I Think Both the team need 2 points badly specially CSK as they won just 2 games in 5 whereas KKR won 2 in their 4 games. If The match was on the used pitch of yesterday then spinner played a great role then csk has a greater chance to win as they have good quality spinners else both teams have an equal chance of winnings.
