Cricket Betting Tips
KKR are all set to take on CSK in the second leg of the clash between two sides. The match is going to be taken place at the iconic Eden Gardens on Thursday. In the first leg CSK defeated KKR while chasing a 200 plus total at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium. As both sides will meet once again we come up with another match prediction.
KKR will look for a revenge at their fortress Eden Gardens when they will take on CSK. In their first leg KKR suffered a heart wrenching defeat to the Men in Yellow. So, in the second leg they will look for a win to improve their standing on the points table.
A good batting attack-KKR have a good batting attack comprised of Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik and Sunil Narine. With such a batting attack KKR can post a big total on board. In their first leg they post a 205 for 5. In that match Russell slammed 88 runs innings.
An improved middle order- In the previous match KKR’s Russell played 36 balls 88 runs innings that helped KKR to cross 200. Apart from Russell KKR have captain Din Karthik who is also a handy batsman for KKR. Nitish Rana has also been phenomenal in the ongoing season as a middle order batsman.
Shaky bowling attack – KKR’s biggest problem is their bowlers who have been leaking too many runs. In their previous match against CSK they lost the match because of their sloppy bowling attack. Since CSK launched the onslaught the likes of Narine, Vinay Kumar, Piyush Chawla and Andre Russell were clueless against CSK batsmen who were dispatching them in the stands. So, in their home match against CSK they should play them as an improved side.

CSK are at the top of the points table with 12 points in 8 matches. In their forthcoming match they will take on KKR as a favourite. Notwithstanding, they will take on KKR with a lot of confidence. So, they will be better side on paper as per our prediction.
A strong batting attack- In the ongoing season CSK have a batting attack which is comprised of players like Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni and Sam Billings. With such a batting attack CSK have all reasons to fire against KKR.
A bowling attack which is good enough to win matches for CSK- Though CSK bowling is not as strong as their bowling attack but the bowlers like Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir and Lungi Ngidi are very clever bowlers in T20 cricket. If they manage to get better of KKR batsmen that will be very hard for the hosts.
It is very hard to find out a weakness of CSK against KKR but this will be their away match which will put KKR on driving seat.

Andre Russell vs Lungi Ngidi

MS Dhoni vs Sunil Narine
In the ongoing season MS Dhoni regained his form and battering the bowlers whenever required. On the other hand, Narine is a very clever spinner. So, the battle will be an interesting to watch out for.
