Chennai vs Kolkata cricket head-to-head

The head-to-head doesn’t paint a pretty picture if you are a Kolkata fan. In 25 Indian T20 League matches between the two teams over the years, four-time champions Chennai have got the better of two-time winners Kolkata on 17 occasions, while Kolkata have emerged triumphant eight times. The last five meetings between the teams have seen Chennai win four times. 

Chennai vs Kolkata prediction for Indian T20 League 2022

With new players and revamped squads for both teams heading into the new campaign, picking an outright winner from this fixture isn’t straightforward. However, Chennai’s squad boasts experienced names who have been a part of the Tamil Nadu-based franchise for some time now, meaning they will take less time to gel with their new teammates. With that in mind, Chennai will have a slight edge and are likely to claim maximum points on Saturday.
