Everyone knows CSK have Strong, Striking and Experience batting unit. They include Watson, Rayadu, Du plessis, Raina, and Dhoni in their Top order for this 11th IPL edition. But during the first match versus Mumbai Indians (MI) they surprised all with the all-Rounder’s from performance Watson, Bravo, jaddu and Jadhav.

All the top orders batsmans are well establised and hard hitting batsmans in this shorter format. That too Narine performance in the last night versus RCB(17 Balls 50) is one of the witness for their batting fire works.
Main worry for the CSK is their opening order. The unusual opening pair A Rayadu and S Watson joins the hand but failed to score runs against MI. In other hand CSK keyplayers Raina and Dhoni failed to perform in the first match and spin duo Bhajji and Tahir are yet quite not so impressive.
KKR is a strong enough team in all sector except the fast bowling department. The experience pacers like Vinay Kumar and Johnson were too expensive in this shorter format and also failed to perform in their first match. If they debut the young champs, who were bowling 150 kmp/hr constantly like Kamalesh nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi, then the bowling unit get better dimension.
