Both the teams are meeting this season for the first time and the Gautam Gambhir-led KKR hold a slight upper-hand coming into this game, following a thumping win against Bangalore. On the other hand, Chennai enter this game on back of a 7-run loss to Kings XI Punjab.
Captains' form: Gambhir has been leading from the front and his batting this season in particular has been spectacular. The manner in which he tamed the Royal Challengers Bangalore at home with a 51-ball 93 was intimidating sight for any opposition bowler. Same cannot be said about CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been struggling with the bat. Dhoni has failed miserably so far aggregating 132 in 9 innings with a high of 40 as compared to Gambhir's 302 from eight innings with a highest of 93.
Chennai: The hosts do have a strong line-up with the likes of Faf du Plessis, Albie Morkel, Suresh Raina and the skipper himself. But the latter two have not been in the best of forms, which is a concern for the Super Kings. The middle order has not been delivering for some time and Chennai have not been able to capatilize on some of the good starts by openers Faf Du Plessies and S Badrinath. But with Michael Hussey now returning to the side, Badrinath moving down the order will add some stability. As far as bowlers are concerned, the likes of Ashwin and Jakati are proven performers at home while the opposition batsmen will not find it easy against Doug Bollinger.
Kolkata:Despite the slow nature of the Chennai wicket, Kolkata batsmen are in good touch and are capable of posting a good if not high total. Apart from Gambhir, Jacques Kallis, Manoj Tiwary and Manvinder Bisla have been among the runs. Their only concern is the form of Yusuf Pathan, who has not been able to be his explosive self. In the bowling department, KKR have the right balance with the likes of Sunil Narine, Iqbal Abdulla, L Balaji and Brett Lee.
After weeks of grueling battles for cricket's biggest honour, teammates will now be on opposite sides for the next 51 days to fight for the Indian Premier League. Chennai Super Kings, the defending champions, take on the tournament's perennial under performers, Kolkata Knight Riders in the inaugural game of IPL IV. MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Yusuf Pathan and Gautam Gambhir, part of the World Cup winning Indian side now find themselves pitted against each other in the tournament opener.
