Previous Match Reviews:
Gambhir: It was just one of those days where everything went off the middle of my bat. The way Sunil bowled was brilliant, he bowled four overs for almost nothing. We had a lot of discussions over what the Eden wicket is like, it is a decent wicket. It is just the quality we have in our side, the way Brendon and Kallis batted and the way we bowled was very good.
On the other hand, Kolkata have used their slower bowlers exceedingly well in the tournament so far and have kept the opponents quiet in the middle overs.
CSK is riding high on confidence following victories over Pune Warriors India and Rajasthan Royals in their last two matches, But lost against Punjab in their last outing. They are thus desperate to gain the momentum back in the match against KKR.
-Faf du Plessis is playing his first season of IPL, and he is playing remarkably well.
-Dhoni has started playing at no. 4 for Chennai which has strengthened the middle order for them.
-D Bravo is doing good both with Bat and Ball in this season of the IPL.
– Gambhir also has reached the peak form and he has scored 93(52) in his last outing against Bangalore.
