KKR vs CSK
Its the second doubleheader of the season, and the second match of the day is KKR vs CSK. KKR has completed their first leg in Chennai, and now they are moving to Mumbai for their second leg at the Wankhede. CSK has 4 points on the table, and KKR has 2 points. CSK has worked on its issues after its first match, and KKR still has the same problems.
In their first match, CSK was not able to pick up many wickets. From the second match, they have picked up many wickets. Deepak Chahar started the work for them with a four-wicket haul, after that, it was the other bowlers who did the trick for them. Moeen Ali usually performs with the bat, but in the last match, he did not bat well. He made up for that with the ball taking 3 wickets and conceding just 7 runs in a spell of 3 overs.
KKR has had the same problem in all its matches. Their middle-order batsmen and finishers are not performing for them. This adds a lot of pressure on the top-order batsmen, and if other batsmen do not capitalize, their efforts go in vain. In the last match, their top-order also failed, and in this situation, middle-order batsmen and finishers failed once again. This is the reason why they lost that match. This also shows how dependent they are on their top-order batsmen.
Toss and Pitch Conditions
KKR has been batting second in this season, and if they win the toss in the next match, they would want to bowl first again. Because the targets are being chased down at the Wankhede. The par score at this pitch will be 190.
