Chennai Super Kings vs Knight Riders Betting Tips 26/03/2022

Teams Status

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings have been jolted just days before their campaign begins as their captain, the only one they have ever known, decided to relinquish the role.

With MS Dhoni no more the captain, it is time for Suresh Raina to take over the leadership role, for which he is amply capable.

Chennai will be without their English allrounder Moeen Ali for the tournament opener as he got his visa late. His unavailability means that New Zealand’s Devon Conway could fill in for him. While the Kiwi would cover the Englishman’s batting, his valuable offspin could be a big miss.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders will be without two of their first-choice players for their first five games, including this one.

Aaron Finch and Pat Cummins are both in Pakistan with the Australian squad and that leaves a huge void in KKR’s batting and bowling units both. Of course, this problem would not have been there in first place if Alex Hales had not withdrawn citing bubble fatigue, forcing KKR to pick Finch as his replacement.

Finch’s opening spot is likely to go to Ajinkya Rahane, who will partner the tall and powerful Venkatesh Iyer up top.

KKR will have a new captain calling the shots this season in the form of Shreyas Iyer.
