Bangla Hunt Desk: Two experienced wicket keepers of India are going to play in one of the most important matches of IPL today. Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders on one side and Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings on the other.
Both teams are desperate to win today's match. Dinesh Karthik's captaincy was widely criticized after the loss to Delhi in the last match. And so today's match is practically a litmus test for Dinesh Karthik. According to sources, some changes are going to come in this match in the first XI of KKR.
Sunil Narine, who came down as KKR opener in several matches, failed miserably with the bat. Despite getting a chance to open in four matches, Narine has not been able to catch the eye yet. And so today Rahul Tripathi can be seen in the opening with Shubhaman Gilen instead of Narin. Rahul Tripathi batted brilliantly against the Delhi Capitals in the last match. And so to strengthen their batting, Rahul Tripathi can be seen in the opening match with Shubhaman Gilen. Besides, captain Dinesh Karthik can be seen further down in the batting order. Changes can also happen in bowling. Kuldeep Yadav, who was on the reserve bench in the last match, can be seen again in today's match.
