Chennai Super Kings will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the 22nd match of IPL 2024 today. While Ruturaj Gaikwad is trying to avoid his third defeat in this match to be held at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, Shreyas Iyer would like to hit the winning four. CSK has lost its last 2 matches. Earlier, the team had won its first 2 matches. If Chennai wants to avoid a hat-trick of defeats, it will have to control 3 players of Kolkata. These include Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Venkatesh Iyer.
