In match 23 of VIVO 2019 (IPL 2019), (CSK) will host (KKR) at the M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday. It's set to be an interesting clash as Dinesh Karthik-led KKR is at the top of points table while MS Dhoni-led CSK is at number two. Both Chennai and Kolkata won their last match against Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals respectively and they would look to extend lead as approaches half-stage. For CSK, there is uncertainty over Dwayne Bravo's inclusion in the playing 11 as he missed the last match due to injury. It will be a clash of two strong sides and Chennai would require the service of all-rounder Bravo to counter Andre Russell's rampaging.
