CSK vs KKR
The Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have both won the IPL more than once, showing they know what it takes to win in this incredibly difficult competition. CSK vs KKR is a game that many people always look forward to, and this year will be no different.
The Chennai Super Kings had won the IPL a total of three times, including when they won back to back titles back in 2010 and 2011, a period that their fans will never forget. They have also won a recent title, lifting the trophy in 2018, but now the focus is on their next and when that will appear. The team plays their home games at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, and this is a place that holds many great memories for both the players and fans of this franchise.
The Kolkata Knight Riders have two IPL wins to their name, which came during the 2012 and 2014 seasons. The fans are beginning to feel the title drought though, and that is piling expectations onto this franchise. Their home is the fantastic Eden Gardens, a stadium that has offered many great cricketing memories over the years.

CSK vs KKR 2019
The Chennai Super Kings came out on top again in the CSK VS KKR 2019 meeting at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, although this game was a far cry from the run-fest we saw in 2018. The Knight Riders went out to bat first and failed to put on any kind of total, ending their innings with a score of 108/9. Andre Russell starred for them here with an unbeaten 50 from 44 balls while Deepak Chahar was the leading wicket-taker for the Super Kings with three wickets for 20 runs from his four overs in the game.
The home side then went out and calmly knocked off the score required, reaching 111/3 from just 17.2 overs. They were led by South African Faf du Plessis, who scored an unbeaten 43 from 45 deliveries to hold his team together and ease them over the line. Sunil Narine bowled well for the Knight Riders taking two wickets for 24 runs, but he was unable to stop the Super Kings from winning this one.
Deepak Chahar took home the man of the match award for his bowling performance for the Super Kings, being the leading wicket taker in the game.

It was the Chennai Super Kings that eventually came out on top, chasing down the 202 total that Kolkata had put on the board and winning the game with one ball to spare.
A quickfire 56 from just 23 deliveries from Englishman Sam Billings helped the Super Kings on their way, with Aussie Shane Watson contributing with both the bat and ball in this one, scoring 42 from 19 deliveries with the bad and being the top wicket-taker for his team with 2/39 with the ball.
Billings took home the man of the match award for this game, but it was Andre Russell of the Knight Riders who top-scored, with an unbeaten 88 from 36 balls. A fantastic innings, but not enough to get his team the victory, with the Super Kings taking home the points from this one.
