In match 23 of VIVO 2019 (IPL 2019), (CSK) will host (KKR) at the M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday. It's set to be an interesting clash as Dinesh Karthik-led KKR is at the top of points table while MS Dhoni-led CSK is at number two. Both Chennai and Kolkata won their last match against Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals respectively and they would look to extend lead as approaches half-stage. For CSK, there is uncertainty over Dwayne Bravo's inclusion in the playing 11 as he missed the last match due to injury. It will be a clash of two strong sides and Chennai would require the service of all-rounder Bravo to counter Andre Russell's rampaging. Chennai Super Kings team news Chennai brought in Faf du Plessis, Scott Kuggeleijn and in place of Dwanye Bravo, Shardul thakur and Mohit Sharma and it worked well as du Plessis smashed a half-century and Harbhajan picked two wickets in his first over. MS Dhoni has scored runs in the torunament so far but the sheen is missing as he is using more balls than ususal. Kolkata Knight Riders team news Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana and Shubhman Gill deliver whenever the team needs it. Overall, KKR have not much to worry as all their tactics during the match work well and Chennai is not as aggressive as it used to be so they might want to take advantage of that.

Karthik admitted that the team failed to put up enough runs on the board. These are tricky games and you don't know how many runs to set with the dew and everything, but when the game finishes you feel you should gave got 20 more runs, so it's always a catch-22 situation," he said. Karthik, who was the second highest scorer behind Russell with 19 runs, said winning two out three games on the road was not a bad result. We have been on the road for three games, but have won two in five days and we shouldn't be too greedy," he said.
