Hence, it makes for a mouth-watering encounter at Chepauk. Keep reading to find out the IPL 2019 CSK vs KXIP Match 18 Prediction.

The defending champions were unbeaten in the first 3 games until Mumbai Indians halted their run. Just like every season, the MS Dhoni-led side has found ways to win games out of tricky situations. The Yellow army would want to get over the loss to MI and bounce back strong at home.

On the other hand, the Kings XI have had to fight hard to earn their victories. The team has performed as a unit and won by turning the games around in the last phase. Ravichandran Ashwin has led the side well but he has a daunting task ahead of facing the mighty CSK in their own backyard.
