The 49th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Chennai vs Kolkata at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. We have got the best Chennai vs Kolkata team prediction for today’s match.
Chennai vs Kolkata Match 49 is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
Chennai are up against Kolkata in the next fixture of the Indian T20 League. Chennai registered an easy win against Bangalore in their previous match but unfortunately are out of the tournament after Rajasthan won against Mumbai later on Sunday. Their move to bring Santner and Tahir worked pretty well and they are again expected to go with the same combination as the venue will be the same as for this next match. They can now damage anyone’s plan of qualification for the next round with their aggressive gameplay as they got nothing to lose. However, Kolkata stole a win from their last meeting and Chennai would like to make things equal from this match.
On the other side, Kolkata suffered yet another defeat but still in a good position to qualify for the playoffs. They lost a very crucial match against Punjab and now are below Punjab in the points table in terms of NRR. Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, all got runs in their last couple of matches and are looking in good touch. Sunil Narine may play a key role to tackle the spin attack of Chennai. However, there are many things they need to improve in their combination. A win from this game will give a much-needed boost to them in the points table and will increase their chances to qualify for the playoffs.
