News Content

What’s up Cricket fans?

As we are nearing the end of another entertaining IPL season, we’re back with some fun insights and tips this weekend, so let’s dive right in!


The games are getting tighter, and all 10 teams are mathematically in with a chance to qualify as we come close to the last few games of the group stage.

These two teams have found themselves on different ends of the leaderboard as CSK have nearly locked in their spot in the top 4 whereas KKR are battling to edge a seat.

This is a crucial game between two classic rivals who have combined for two epic IPL finals and endless nail-biting finishes.

Considering the stakes at hand, we are in for another competitive game this weekend.

Pitch & Weather Report

We are back down South for this clash at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The pitch has proven to be great for batting given the small boundaries, but the last two games here have proven that there is something for the bowlers if the batsmen get reckless.

MS Dhoni loves putting a score to defend whereas KKR have firepower in their line-up which will flourish in a run chase, so both teams will benefit from sticking to their strengths.

Team News

CSK have found their best XI, so we don't expect Captain Cool to make any changes this weekend.

KKR have found some balance in their batting with the inclusion of Jason Roy at the top but their pace bowling has been a concern.

We think they may consider including veteran Umesh Yadav back in the XI to give themselves a chance to make the top 4.

Betting Tips

Both teams have power hitters in their line-up and considering the history of the ground, we think it will be raining sixes this weekend.

Jason Roy has looked good early but has been unable to convert it big, in a crucial game that could be a knockout we think he will shine and raise his bat.

Selection- Over 15.5 (Total Sixes) @1.79

Selection- Yes (1st Innings- Jason Roy to score 50) @4.10
