The reigning Chennai Super Kings will meet the Kolkata Knights Riders in the opening match of the tournament this year and it will be a repeat of last year’s final. CSK finished on the winning side at the last meeting and KKR will be looking to avenge the loss in the final last year.
Both teams were slightly affected by the late arrival of their players from abroad and CSK will not be served by Moein Ali in the first match. However, the big news is that the great MS Dhoni has stepped down as captain and handed the reins over to Ravindra Jadeja for this season. On the other hand, the Kolkata Knights Riders have some interesting options off the bench, but they have been a bit affected by the late arrivals of Pat Cummins and Aaron Finch.
The two-time title winners will see their new captain, Sharyas Iyer, do their magic as many familiar faces return to the team. It is expected to be a violent confrontation between the two teams that have only a few winners of the match.
