Crickinfo Scorecard

Can Dinesh Karthik lead KKR o another victory?

Dinesh Karthik Started his captaincy good. He held his nerves at the end and finished the victory. Sunil Narine scored a fifty and eased the pressure on the batsmen to follow. Whichever team wins this game will occupy the top position. Lynn failed in his first encounter. KKR’s only problem is their Local bowling. They are fortunate enough in game 2 that Nitesh Rana , part time bowler, took two wickets of AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli, which is the game changer against RCB.

Injury Woes for CSK

CSK has lot of things to worry about despite win. Kedhar Jadhav ,who finished off the match, is unavailable for three weeks. Which might force them to change team composition. Which might lead to further changes. CSK fans witnessed Dhoni up the order and got excited. It is evident that he is going to bat higher throughout IPL. Eden has always been inclined to Spin. Harbhajhan Singh is apt for this wicket. Ravindra Jadeja should also enjoy bowling on this wicket.

Deepak Chahar Swung the ball from very first ball. Chahar will retain his place. Murali Vijay is available to replace Kedhar Jadhav.  This will shift Ambati Rayudu down the order. Suresh Raina will not bat lower than no3. So Rayudu is obvious to play below three. One more change anticipated is Ngidi replacing Mark wood. Mitchell Johnson could be handy at the start of the innings as Sunil Narine doesn’t like too much pace

Cricinfo Predictions

Team batting first will win the match.

Lynn to score a fifty.
