In the 33rd match of the Indian Premier League 2023 season, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Chennai Super Kings at the legendary Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Unfortunately, KKR has been going through a tough phase, with three consecutive losses in their previous games, all of which were heavily one-sided affairs. In contrast, CSK has been performing consistently well in their recent IPL matches, making them the front-runners to win the upcoming encounter in the City of Joy.
