The IPL 2019 is getting interesting with every passing game.
With both the teams enjoying tremendous form, it would be interesting to see who stands tall.
Here we pick the ideal Fantasy XI for this match.
Starting with the wicket-keeping department, it should be handled by the one and only MS Dhoni.
While it is a no-brainer as to why Dhoni should keep the wickets, his good form with the bat, since the start of 2019, makes his case stronger.
With an immense wealth of experience, both as captain and wicket-keeper batsman, he definitely outsmarts KKR's Dinesh Karthik.
The batting order has to start with KKR's swashbuckling opener Chris Lynn, who has been in good touch.
He is to be supported by Nitish, given he can score runs swiftly atop.
The order continues with CSK's Faf du Plessis, who hit 54 in the last game, while Suresh Raina would assist him. We expect Raina to soon deliver a match-winning innings.
The department of all-rounders is likely to start with KKR's Sunil Narine, who is lethal both as a spinner and an opener. He can be the captain of this side.
While Narine's team-mate Andre Russell is an obvious choice in this contest, his likely ally would be CSK's Ravindra Jadeja.
Jadeja is highly economical with the ball, and can bat if needed.
As for the bowling department, it should have pacer Scott Kuggeleijn.
He was impressive against KXIP, claiming 2/37.
He is to get support from KKR's Harry Gurney, who too did well for his side in the last game, claiming 2/25.
However, bowling would be incomplete without CSK's spinner Imran Tahir, who can be deadly at home. He gets our nod to be the vice-captain.
