“It looks similar. But it will be sticky and we have to be careful during the first few overs. There was less dew and the spinning machines could move freely. We get too much dew and the lengths are quite different. We rested Bravo for this game and Ngidi is coming in, “he said MS Dhoni.
Having amassed winnings from back to back, CSK will seek to extend its winning streak when it takes over the Morgan-led camp. Unlike their performance in the UAE last year, Chennai’s team has been impressive so far this season. After losing to Delhi Capitals in their original match, Donnie’s side returned to their old way, defeating the Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals convincingly.
KKR, on the other hand, will seek to recover from successive losses. In both defeats, KKR had the upper hand, but could not take advantage of their starts. Head coach Brendan McCallum had already hinted at some changes after their 38 defeats by Royal Challengers Bangalore.
