It is time to see a clash match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders at
Both the sides lost their previous encounter against Mumbai Indians and it would be keen to boost their tally for two points. And cricket crazy fans will wait passionately to see who will bag these two points. Chennai Super Kings need at least two wins of the remaining matches to ensure a semi-final berth.
Batting seems the main problem for Kolkata Knight Riders team. They made the lowest score in the inaugural IPL tournament against Mumbai Indians in their last match. KKR is suffering a lot because of some top players absence. However, they have to snatch win in all of the remaining matches if they want to play in the semi-final round. It is quite hard and impossible. To make it possible, they have to change their batting line up or make it better than past. They lost five matches out of ten that cannot afford any more home matches. Except a few players, no one can consistent their success in their batting side.
The inclusion of Shoaib Akhtar has been a big boost for the team and he has certainly proved his talent in his first IPL appearance against Delhi Daredevils taking four wickets in 3 overs. He also got the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar in the last match. So, batsman should fear to play against his fast ball. Ashok Dinda, who was left for the last match, has strong possibility to come back against Chennai. Ishant Sharma will also be a good pair in the opening bowling attack with Shoaib Akhtar. KKR is well-known for their good fielding. We can see some amazing fielding from Zimbabwean player Taibu. Batsman Brad Hodge is supposed to join in the KKR team. No doubt, his inclusion in his team will give new life and help to come back in the competition.
