Overall Match Prediction:
It’s not that difficult to predict a winner in this game. Chennai Super Kings has hardly any chance to win this game as they are struggling with both batting and bowling performance of their own. They did win the last game against RCB but KKR is a better side and is sitting on the 5th spot on the IPL 2020 Points Table. This win against the CSK will improve the chances of KKR to stay in the race for playoffs. Kolkata has emerged out to be a brilliant side with the captaincy of Eoin Morgan. Their batsman can easily take charge against the CSK bowlers. This game will clear up the equations a little more for the IPL 2020 tournament playoffs.
