Of late, everyone seems to be keeping up with the latest sporting tournament, the IPL and this is your one stop for all the info on the upcoming match and the top picks for the IPL fantasy league.

In-form Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their Indian Premier League encounter at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday.

Battle Royale on cards as KKR takes on CSK

While CSK have been at the top of their game at home, KKR are sitting at the top of the points table with four wins from five games. Although both the teams are equal on points- eight apiece- KKR have a better net run-rate of +1.058 over CSK's +0.159.

CSK will go into the match with a lot of confidence as they defended a modest 160 in their last home fixture against Kings XI Punjab after the visitors looked like running away with the game at one point of time. In the end, it was captain cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni who showed great leadership skills to pull things back in favour of the defending champions.

KKR go into the match after another clinical finish, as they walloped Rajasthan Royals by eight wickets in a one-sided contest. They first restricted Royals to 139/3 before chasing down the target in just 14 overs with Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine giving their team a flying start.

CSK vs KKR: Dream 11 top 6 picks

Both the teams playing today have some of the top players from the national and international cricketing scene. From the home team, opt for Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Deepak Chahar and Imran Tahir. There’s no explaining Captain Cool’s batting prowess and at the same time, the bowlers have been performing consistently as well. Both the bowlers are at the top of their game and have been taking several wickets in each match. These three players should give your team an edge over the competitors.

On to the contenders from outside, KKR has a great bowling lineup and you should have at least two of them. Kuldeep Yadav and Andrew Russel have both been consistent performers in this season of the IPL and we expect them to perform similarly in this game as well. Though RCB is something of a soft target, they have to keep in mind not to take the team lightly. Apart from that, Dinesh Kartik is an explosive batsman who has shown his potential on the field. He has quickly become a fan favourite and with his batting prowess on side, you’ve got an unbeatable team.

Our top 6 picks: Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Deepak Chahar and Imran Tahir from CSK, while from KKR, we suggest Kuldeep Yadav, Andrew Russel and Dinesh Kartik

KKR vs CSK: Match Prediction

All in all, it will be a mouth-watering clash between two of the best teams in the league. CSK will have the home advantage and if they can restrict Narine and Russell from hitting out of the park then CSK will definitely have an edge over KKR.
