Welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The game would be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai and hosts the two big teams of the tournament. This has always been a derby to look forward to simply because of the quality of cricket that would be on show. KKR are the defending champions of the tournament, whereas there is CSK who have been crowned victors in the last Champions League T20 (CLT20), where they beat KKR in the final. These two sides have often produced great cricket and here is another opportunity for the fans to watch it. READ: Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Preview

The interesting thing is that this game is at Chennai and in a couple of days, the two teams will travel to Kolkata for the return leg. These back-to-back encounters are rare in the IPL and one has to wait and see the kind of implications they would have. KKR have a very good side and so do CSK. Picking a winner between the two is never easy. CSK are all the more dangerous on home turf. IPL 2015 pitches have more grass to equip India batsmen for overseas conditions, says Ravichandran Ashwin
