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.
With just two wins - both on home turf - from five games, the Knights badly need to put it across the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led rivals in a repeat of last year's final when they won the cliffhanger to get their maiden IPL crown. More preview
Kolkata Knight Riders stunned defending champions Chennai Super Kings to lift the IPL trophy for the first time last year.
Chennai piled up a massive 190 and were favourites to win after Gautam Gambhir fell in the first over. But a breathtaking onslaught by wicket keeper batsman Manvinder Bisla took KKR home with two balls to spare.
The two teams had split their two earlier clashes in 2012, with KKR winning the first one and CSK prevailing in the return clash.
Here are the scorecards from past editions:
May 27, 2012 - CSK vs KKR - Kolkata Knight Riders won by 5 wickets
May 14, 2012 - KKR v CSK - Chennai Super Kings won by 5 wkts
