Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) play Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Match 47 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on May 20. Kolkata need a win to boost their chances of making it into the IPL 7 play-offs. Chennai could progress to the play-offs with a win of their own. It was Chennai who won the previous clash with Kolkata. This match will be played at the iconic Eden Gardens.

Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa have been in exceptional form off late for Kolkata and will be looking to keep that going. Sunil Narine has also been excellent, but needs more support from the likes of Morne Morkel and Piyush Chawla. Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey and Ryan ten Doeschate also got in amongst the runs for Kolkata in their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Umesh Yadav took three wickets and he will be key for the bowling attack. Catch Live Scorecard of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK) here.

 

MS Dhoni‘s Chennai lost their previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The batting didn’t click, but it could just be a one-off. Suresh Raina, though, scored a half-century and will be looking to get another big score. Ravichandran Ashwin was phenomenal as he took two wickets. He along with Chennai’s other spinners in Ravindra Jadeja, Raina and David Hussey could do better at the spin-friendly Eden Gardens track.
