Welcome to our CSK Vs KKR IPL 2022 preview. The match will happen in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. CSK Vs KKR IPL fantasy league can also be played on FSL11.

Here are our predictions for today’s cricket match and the expected Playing XI for CSK Vs KKR IPL match. 

The opening match of this season will take place between the four-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)

There are many reasons why Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will be huge favourites to win Game 1 of IPL 2022 against Kolkata Knight Riders.

One of the most successful IPL franchises, CSK, is known for maintaining continuity in their selection and not tinkering too much with their overall approach. For this reason, where other franchises have seen massive changes, CSK remains relatively unchanged. Evergreen players like Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Deepak Chahar, and Dwayne Bravo turned yellow again during the IPL 2022 mega auction.


Date: March 26, 2022, Saturday

Time: 7:30 PM IST

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai


The pitch is always batting friendly in Wankhede Stadium, drummers get an excellent heads-up, and the pitch is less useful for bowlers. This pitch is made of red clay, making the surface very hard and the bowlers bounce. 

It is an excellent field for T20 matches because scores will be quick with a good bounce, and for spectators, there is a lot of fun here.


The temperature will vary from 27 to 32 degrees celsius with zero chances for rain. The weather will be pretty hot.

CSK Vs KKR IPL Probable Playing XI:-

CSK Probable XI – Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Josh Hazlewood, Deepak Chahar

KKR Probable XI – Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rinku Singh, Sheldon Jackson (wk), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, Lockie Ferguson, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi.

CSK Vs KKR 2022 Captain Choices:

Captain – MS Dhoni, Eoin Morgan


Benefiting from a plethora of experience, the CSK team contains many game-winners that have proven themselves repeatedly. Without any doubt, the reigning champions have the most experienced squad this time around.

On the other hand, KKR also has great talents in its line-up. However, they will rely heavily on the services of Andre Russell, who is prone to injury.


The last time these two teams met was in the IPL 2021 final. KKR had a great fight with CSK, but at last, CSK grabbed the title.

Altogether, the Yellow Army fought KKR 26 times, winning 17. The Bengal franchise, meanwhile, won only 8 games against CSK.
