The 61st game of the IPL 2023 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Super Kings are currently at the second position in the points table, with 15 points. KKR, on the other hand, are in the seventh spot with 10 points. A loss in this game will officially eliminate KKR from the playoffs race, while a win will keep them alive in the tournament.
CSK come into this game after defeating Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians in their last two matches. Their batsmen struggled against the Delhi bowlers, but somehow managed to get to a total of 167 runs. None of the batsmen could score more than 25 runs. However, the Chennai bowlers bowled brilliantly to defend the target. Matheesha Pathirana and Deepak Chahar picked up five wickets between them to help CSK win the game by 27 runs.
KKR, on the other hand, lost to the Rajasthan Royals in their previous match. Both their batting and bowling was disappointing on the day. Batting first, KKR were able to muster a small total of 149 after Venkatesh Iyer scored a half century. In the latter half of the game, they had to deal with a batting masterclass by Yashasvi Jaiswal, who remained unbeaten on 98 runs.

CSK vs KKR Match 61 Prediction
KKR are heavily reliant on their middle order for runs. And their pace bowlers have also been quite poor in their performance this season. CSK, on the other hand, look solid in both their batting and bowling department. We predict CSK to win this game.
