Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s Live Coverage of Match 49 of IPL 2020 between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai..
An inconsistent Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will look to move up the table and secure a playoff berth when it takes on the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in match 49 of the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) season in Dubai on Thursday.
With six wins from 12 matches, KKR has been inconsistent and comes into this game on the back of a humbling defeat to Kings XI Punjab. The team has just won two of its last six matches and has struggled to get its opening combination right.
It has not helped that there has been too much tinkering with the batting order. The team needs to find a way to settle on its batting order if it hopes to go all the way to the title.
