After winning a rather nail-bitting than a controversial match against Rajasthan, CSK will look to outclass one of their arch-rivals KKR at Eden Garden in a hot day game. CSK looks to be in great form with all the bases covered while injury prone KKR will look to gain some crucial points before the last stages of tournament begin. Both teams are spin-heavy but are likely to play on a rather pacer friendly surface which might hurt KKR a little as their pace attack is very weak in comparison to CSK. So, expect another good game of cricket.
