Where: Dubai International Cricket Stadium

When: Thursday, 29 October 2020

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The Dubai pitch has produced a balanced set of results for the team batting first or second. As the tournament has gone on, the deck has started to slow. First-innings scores of around 170 have become the norm.

Weather conditions: It’s a rather predictable forecast for Dubai on Thursday, with no rain predicted and temperatures in the mid-30 degrees celsius. Dew will play a role as the late afternoon turns into evening.

Chennai Super Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders – Team News

Captain MS Dhoni has effectively made a public commitment to play members of the squad who otherwise haven’t had much game time.

That means New Zealand all-rounder and Mitchell Santner, South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir and Indian opening batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad should be kept in the XI.

The Knight Riders will likely go into the match without Andre Russell again. He has been battling fitness issues.

Some have argued that Dinesh Karthik is being underutilised, so he might move up the batting order, which should be topped by Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana again.

Chennai Super Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are more free cricket betting tips for today’s match. These predictions are based on the form of the players and the news coming out of their squads.

Choose Chakravarthy to Be the Top Bowler for KKR

Varun Chakravarthy is the only player to take a five-wicket haul in the IPL 2020 and was recently named in India’s T20 squad for their tour of Australia later this year.

He is full of confidence and bowling really well. The spinner is a solid pick to be the top bowler for Kolkata again at 3.96 with 1xBet, who have over 150 markets for this match alone.

Pick du Plessis and Gaiwkwad in an Accumulator Outcome

Faf du Plessis has been in fine form and Ruturaj Gaikwad marked his IPL 2020 debut with a solid half-century against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

They are our preferred picks among 22Bet’s several accumulator outcomes. The Proteas star and Indian talent are priced at 5.5 to score at least 30 runs each. This could bring good value.

Select a Half-Century Not to Be Scored

The Dubai International Cricket Stadium has arguably been the trickiest track to bat on during the 2020 IPL. Sharjah and Abu Dhabi have easier on the face of it.

We’ve seen it happen before and it could happen here, where batsmen collect promising starts, only to get out and not convert to a half-century and beyond. 10CRIC have priced this happening at 6.0.
