CSK vs KKR: MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings' chase hattrick of wins in IPL 2023

Chennai Super Kings will look to earn a victory at the Eden Gardens on Sunday and close in on the top spot in the IPL 2023 standings. CSK are currently placed third with four wins and two losses with two back-to-back victories against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad, respectively. In the meantime, Kolkata Knight Riders are coming off three losses on the trot.

In their last encounter, CSK restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad to 134/7 in the first innings, courtesy of a three-wicket haul by Ravindra Jadeja, among other notable contributions. The four-time IPL winners then marched to victory as Devon Conway remained unbeaten on 77 off 57, with his opening partner Ruturaj Gaikwad scoring 35 runs in 30 balls. If Rajasthan Royals lose to RCB in the first matchup on Sunday, CSK can climb to the top of the IPL 2023 points table with a win over KKR.
