TOSS: Kolkata have won the toss and have elected to bat first.

Chennai (Playing XI): Michael Hussey, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, S Badrinath, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni(w/c), Albie Morkel, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Chris Morris, Mohit Mahipal Sharma

Kolkata (Playing XI): Gautam Gambhir(c), Jacques Kallis, Manoj Tiwary, Eoin Morgan, Yusuf Pathan, Debabrata Das(w), Laxmi Shukla, Rajat Bhatia, Sunil Narine, Sachithra Senanayake, Lakshmipathy Balaji

====================================================================================

There was heavy rain yesterday. So as a precautionary measure, covers were on. However, they have been taken off now. The game is expected to start on time.

Pushed to the bottom half of the table after yet another away defeat, Kolkata Knight Riders would look to bounce back in the tournament when they take on a resurgent Chennai Super Kings in a top- Pepsi IPL fixture on Saturday.

Playing their spin card to perfection, Gautam Gambhir`s men might be ruling the roost at the Eden -- two wins out of two -- but they would be low on confidence after the manner they lost to Kings XI Punjab at Mohali on Tuesday.

CSK scored a convincing win against Delhi Daredevils on Thursday night but the stakes will be high on Mahendra Singh Dhoni`s side in a battle between the defending champions versus the two-time champions.
