On Sunday, May 14, the 61st game of the Indian Premier League 2023 will feature a heavyweight showdown between the four-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Nitish Rana-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium.
Kolkata would be coming off a humbling defeat to the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals. With their chances of making the competition’s playoffs looking dismal, the club would be desperate to bounce back to winning ways. Chennai, on the other hand, is in a relatively comfortable position in the standings, and the MS Dhoni-led club would be eager to secure a spot in the knockout stages.
