KKR vs CSK Dream11 Prediction:
- Chennai Super Kings finally witnessed their Kiwi star batter – Devon Conway firing at the top of the order. Not only did he guide the team to a successful chase of 135 against SRH, but even scored 77 runs off 57 balls. On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja was their star bowler, taking 3 wickets in his quota of 4 overs and even giving just 22 runs in it.
- Kolkata Knight Riders have had quite a few game-winners in the 6 games they have played so far but it was Jason Roy who took center stage in the last game scoring a solid 43-run inning. On the other hand, Varun Chakravarthy was their star with the ball, taking 2 wickets and even bowled a maiden in his quota of 4 overs. Moreover, the spoken-off spinner gave mere 16 runs.
- Given how solid Ruturaj Gaikwad has played so far in the competition, we predict him to make over 40 runs in Match 33.

Weather & Pitch Report:
With no chances of rain, the humidity will be peaking around 80% whereas the temperature is expected to be around 32 to 26 degrees.
The wicket at Eden Gardens is flat and allows batsmen to play their strokes. Although there is some assistance for the pacers to get swing in the initial overs with the new ball, the spinners will have a tough time in the middle overs.

KKR vs CSK Team NEWS:
KKR Team News:
Given how Kulwant Khejroliya failed to cement his place by giving 20 runs in just 8 balls, there are high chances that Nitish Rana would want Shardul Thakur to return in the starting XI. Moreover, the latter all-rounder is well aware of CSK’s game plans as he was a part of the team previously, this game could also feature KKR using seven bowlers.
CSK Team News:
After CSK’s most recent win, it is hard to imagine MS Dhoni entering the game without all 4 of his overseas players included in his starting XI. While Moeen Ali provides a bowling option as well, he is most likely to retain his place whereas Matheesha Pathirana and Maheesh Theekshana, too, looked impressed with the ball in the previous game. However, given the nature of the pitch, Deepak Chahar could replace Tushar Deshpande.

Kolkata Knight Riders have exceptional talent at their disposal in the form of – Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Jason Roy yet none of them have come alive in the first six games consistently. On the other hand, CSK’s batting order might not be as lethal as other franchises yet their top order has been delivering in every game. Moreover, the likes of Ravindra Jadeja, Maheesh Theekshana, and Moeen Ali also provide depth to their bowling attack. This is just why we pick Chennai Super Kings to beat Kolkata Knight Riders to win Match 33.
Kolkata Knight Riders have a 67% chance to win this match
Chennai Super Kings have a 33% chance to win this match
Top Key Players:
Although he did face 31 balls in the previous game, Russell found it tough to explore, managing to score only 38 runs. This shows how desperately KKR wants their marquee all-rounder to fire on all cylinders if they are to contest a playoff berth in IPL 2023.
The Englishman is known to be a fierce opening batsman, having scored 43 runs in the last game, Roy will have some assistance off the track in Match 33.
The mystery spinner is entering Match 33 after taking 2 wickets and having an economy rate of 4.25 in the previous game against DC.
KKR Possible Impact Players Substitute
Anukul Roy, Vaibhav Arora, Narayan Jagadeesan, Suyash Sharma
It is pretty likely that Anukul Roy is going to be KKR’s impact substitute after he took 2 wickets in the previous game. While Suyash Sharma could be called in if the wicket suits the mystery spinner. Whereas Jagadeesan could be a solid Indian wicketkeeper/batsman option if KKR loses wickets early and require an experienced and steady batsman on the crease.
India’s prime all-rounder finally got his elegance back with the ball, taking 3 wickets in the previous game. Not only did he bowl his quota of 4 overs, giving just 22 runs in the previous game, but in Match 33 Ravindra Jadeja will be itching to contribute efficiently with the bat as well.
Not only did he score an impressive half-century in the previous game but Conway is also amongst the batsman contesting for this year’s orange cap. In his 6 games, Devon has scored 258 runs.
One of the prime contenders to secure a place in the national team for this year’s World Cup, Gaikwad is in the sixth position for the orange cap with a total of 235 runs after scoring 35 runs against SRH.
CSK Possible Impact Players Substitute
Ambati Rayadu, Ben Stokes, Ajay Mandal, Nishant Sindhu
Many would argue that since MS Dhoni does not likely have high-end amends in his team, Ambati Rayadu will be the obvious impact substitute. While Ben Stokes can replace Moeen Ali if the latter doesn’t get an opportunity to bat, Ajay Mandal and Nishant Sindhu are two all-rounders who can be used as per the requirement of the game.
KKR vs CSK Team Forms:
KKR Team Form:
Being on a 3-game losing streak, KKR lost its last match to the bottom-placed – DC by 4 wickets and 4 balls remaining. However, returning back to play in front of their home fans, they will have the required support to beat MS Dhoni-led CSK.
CSK Team Form:
Although the 4-time IPL Champs did start their season with a tough loss yet MS Dhoni’s side has now picked up the pace and is amongst the top teams with 8 points. They are currently on a 2-game winning streak and have all the assets to stretch their winning run to three.
