A buoyant Chennai Super Kings, fresh from two convincing wins in their last two matches, will take on struggling Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.
While CSK have got two wins in three matches, KKR have won just one out of their three matches and are looking out of sorts.

In the last season, however, both sides won a game each. In the first leg, Knight Riders emerged victorious by 10 runs. In the return match, Dhoni's side won on the last ball of the match with a six, beating Kolkata by six wickets.
