No threat to CSK home game amid protests

Ahead of the Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders bout today at the MA Chidambaram stadium here, almost 4,000 policemen were deployed by the Tamil Nadu government at the stadium's vicinity to prevent unrest.

This content is restricted to site members. Their last match against Mumbai Indians was a testimony that they won't let go of anything and will be one of the top contenders for the title.

It's safe to say that Karthik will be striving to spoil the party for the local fans in what will be Chennai's first home game since their two-year ban.

All of CSK's home matches are set to be played at the very same venue with the next match set to be played on April 20 against Rajasthan Royals. Tamil film star Rajinikanth had suggested that CSK team players play with black bands to express the anguish of people who have been staging protests demanding setting up of Cauvery Management Board.

The visiting Kolkata side started with a win against the strong RCB as Sunil Narine, blasted a quickfire 50. There is no confirmation yet as to whether the Chennai Super Kings team is in the stadium. "I am sure that the KKR squad will enjoy the JBL products and with this partnership, we are hoping to infuse more energy into them and looking forward to our journey together", Venky Mysore, MD & CEO, Kolkata Knight Riders.

KKR's batting, in fact, seems to be interesting mix, with the in-form Dinesh Karthik leading a group of experienced and young players.

The most expensive IPL signing this year in Ben Stokes failed to deliver the goods in their campaign opener and he will be keen to prove his worth to the franchise on Wednesday.

Wicket-keeper batsman Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana are believed to play in the middle order.

All-rounder Andre Russell will, however, remain the X-factor of the team. The Calypso onslaught was on both sides, with Dwayne Bravo copping the full force of his one-time national teammate, conceding seven sixes from the blade of Russell, the most he has ever gone for in his 377 T20 matches. A decent medium pacer, Russell once again showed his big-hitting prowess when he walked out to bat at the Eden on Sunday.

KKR might join the field with two spinners and two fast bowlers.

Meanwhile, spectators are also trickling to the stadium while the match is expected to start 8 p.m.
