Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and elected to field against Chennai Super Kings here today.
Having posted four wins on the trot and six overall, the homecoming could not have come at a better time for Kolkata Knight Riders, who are aiming to clinch the playoffs berth as they prepare to take on Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League here Tuesday.
Chennai would be smarting from their home defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore who kept their campaign alive after posting a five-wicket win.
Having posted eight wins from 11, second-placed Chennai can afford to relax and even if they lose their remaining three games, they may be through on net run-rate.
