TATA IPL 2022 CSK v KKR: Predicted playing XI of Chennai Super Kings & Kolkata Knight Riders

Chennai Super Kings will stick to its formula of playing a settled playing XI. In absence of Moeen Ali, Mitchell Santner could make his way into the squad.

Chennai Super Kings, the previous IPL Title winner, will lock horns with arch-rivals Kolkata Knight Riders as the two fresh captains, Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja will aim to embark victorious in a new season. The CSK side has stuck to its long-winning formula of ‘Tried and tested’ when it has retained the majority of the players from the last season and will be hoping to bank on its mix of experience and talent.
