With their title defence in a spot of bother after they lost three away games, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will look to maintain their perfect home record in the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) when they lock horns with a resurgent Chennai Super Kings (CSK) here Saturday.

Kolkata Knight Riders stunned defending champions Chennai Super Kings to lift the IPL trophy for the first time last year.
