Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Live Streaming - Match 30 IPL 2015

KKR locks horn with CSK in a return match just within a span of 48 hours. Two days ago KKR played CSK in Chennai and suffered a narrow defeat. They are back in action against the same team but now at the Eden Gardens. Watch CSK vs KKR live streaming on Star Sports and HotStar live match app. Sony Six and Sony Max will provide live telecast of this IPL match in India with live English and Hindi commentary.

Chennai Super Kings, the most successful T20 team in IPL again rests at the top of points tally. KKR is placed at fourth position. A win today can take them to third position while a win for CSK will further strengthen their first spot in the IPL 2015 points table.

Kolkata Knight Riders failed to chase a small total against CSK and Gautam Gambhir wasn't able to digest the defeat. He must have felt good about the bowling effort his bowlers put to restrict the heavy CSK batting line up. But at the same time he must be highly disappointed with himself and fellow batsmen who couldn't chase down the small total.

Again Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa will have to play a major role up the order. As KKR have opted to field first they are looking to chase down a total here. Eight out of the 10 last matches played here are won by chasing teams. That could have been a reason Gambhir opted to field first.

Dhoni at toss said he doesn't have a good idea of the pitch here. So he would have also liked to chase. But he welcomes Gambhir's decision and would try to post a good total on board. Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith have done a great job so far for CSK. Suresh Raina needs to be consistent with his bat. Pawan Negi and Ronit More get a chance to play for CSK today. Ishwar Pandey is rested while R Ashwin is out with an injury for next couple of matches.

Sunil Narine was an ace in the bowling unit for KKR last year. After seeing a ban on his bowling he rectified his action but he didn't look too effective this year. Above all, another ban has been imposed on his off-spinners. This creates another dark clouds on his career and he might be rested for next matches. Gambhir also likes to continue with Pat Cummins in place of Morkel who did a great job so far.

Bravo came up with a match winning last over against KKR last time. Let us see what he is due for tonight with his ball as well as the bat. 

KKR would strive hard to return the favours on CSK and register a win back home tonight. Let us see if they succeed or will it be CSK who would register another win.
