KKR vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Who will win the match
Chennai Super Kings is coming with a winning momentum from the previous game against KXIP. Their openers have finally regained their prime form with the bat and it is going to be a tough task for the inexperienced bowling unit of KKR to dismiss them early in the game. Also, the CSK bowling department now looks well settled. This is the reason we have picked Chennai Super Kings as the probable winners for the upcoming game.
