IPL 2018: Nitish Rana Misses Training With Back Spasm

Irfan Pathan and MS Dhoni

KKR should have done better than its present standing and its shoddy performances with both the bat and the ball had cost it dearly during the first-round matches, relegating it to the fourth position on the points table with just four wins from eight matches.

Asif also impressed with his raw pace and quick arm action and took two wickets on debut, though the young Kerala pacer leaked 43 runs in three overs. Ambati Rayudu too has gone about his tasks quietly, be it as an opener or in the middle-order to lead the batting chart with 370 runs.

Shane Watson (CSK) - Barring a match winning century against Rajasthan, the CSK all-rounder had not been firing on all cylinders. In the mid-table with six matches to go, KKR can not afford to lose at Eden Gardens, where they play three more, in its bid for to secure a maiden playoff berth under Dinesh Karthik.

It is the battle of the 1st and 4th placed teams in the table at the Eden Gardens tonight and if the previous game between these sides is anything to go by, then another run-fest could be on the offing.

Coming to the hosts, KKR registered a morale-boosting six-wicket win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last game on the road.

Chennai Super Kings which is also known as CSK is one of the reputed franchise team in Indian Premier League and they have won couple of times the title of the tournament.

The positive news is while there were concerns over Andre Russell and Chris Lynn in particular, both have remained injury free to date but Kolkata seem to lack cover for anyone out of form.

Mavi added that he is still in constant touch with U-19 World Cup coach and batting great Rahul Dravid.
