- KKR are yet to really get going in this year’s tournament and were soundly beaten by RCB in their last game. Were it not for Nitish Rana’s 155 runs then they would be in an even worse position, only Rahul Tripathi has also gone beyond 50. With the ball, apart from Andre Russell’s 5-15 in the defeat against Mumbai Indians, none of the bowlers have shone with consistent performances.
- After being outplayed by Delhi Capitals, CSK have responded with two comprehensive victories. They have produced these wins in spite of none of their batsmen making a half-century in the games. Moeen Ali has led the way with 72 runs across the two victories. With the ball, Moeen Ali and Deepak Chahar have both taken 4 wickets, Chahar taking them all in the game against Punjab Kings.
- KKR are yet to call on the services of overseas players Tim Seifert, Sunil Narine or Lockie Ferguson. For CSK, they have not selected Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir, Lungi Ngidi or Jason Behrendorff so far
