Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders win toss, opt to bowl vs Chennai Super Kings at Eden Gardens.

Chennai Super Kings are on top of the table and a win for MS Dhoni’s side will get them closer to sealing a spot in the play-offs. Dhoni, in particular, has been in great form and has led from the front and he has got great support from Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu.

However, Dinesh Karthik’s side will be hoping to take revenge for their loss in a high-scoring encounter in their first encounter at the MA Chidambaram stadium. Kolkata Knight Riders are currently fourth in the table and a loss could make the race for the play-offs even more intense.
