This time, IPL is bigger than ever as two new teams had joined and a total of 74 matches will be played instead of 64 matches between ten teams. The opening match of IPL is scheduled between the finalist of the previous edition, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Chennai Super Kings won the title of the previous edition of IPL and will be defending it. CSK had trusted on the most experienced players than the young players and we will also see this in this tournament. The most successful captain of Chennai Super Kings, MS Dhoni had resigned and Ravindra Jadeja will be leading the Kings. Deepak Chahar will not available for the first half of IPL and this is not a good sign for CSK. Moeen Ali had got the visa and we can expect that he will be part of the playing eleven for this match. Devon Conway will debut in the Indian Premier League in this match and he will be opening the batting inning of CSK with Ruturaj Gaikwad.
The batting order of Chennai Super Kings is average but experienced. Ambati Rayadu, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Robin Uthappa, and MS Dhoni will be handling the batting order of CSK and we are sure that the above mentioned players will be the part of playing eleven for this match. Ravindra Jadeja and Ambati Rayadu can be the highest run-scorer in this match. The bowling department of CSK is also average. Chris Jordan and Adam Milne are available and we think that one of these players will be selected for this match. Theekshana, KM Asif, Tushar Deshpande, and Rajvardhan Hangargekar are also available for selection.
Kolkata Knight Riders Reviews
Kolkata Knight Riders were the runner-up team of this previous season.

They had retained Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, and Andre Russel from the auction. Shreyas Iyer is a new addition to this team who is in superb form these days as we had seen him against the series against West Indies. Venkatesh Iyer will open the batting inning for KKR but we are not sure who will be his second partner.
Nitish Rana, Ajinkya Rahane, and Aaron Finch are available and one of these three batters will open the batting inning with Venkatesh Iyer. Sam Billings will also the part of the final playing eleven for this match as he is the only full-time wicket-keeper in the squad of KKR.
