Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders will clash in the Final match of IPL 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. We will cover CSK vs KOL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.
Chennai Super Kings:
Gaikwad is back in form as he scored 70 runs in the last match, but du Plessis got out early. At No.3, Robin Uthappa turned the game for CSK by scoring 63 runs. In the middle, Rayudu and Moeen Ali haven’t played a big inning recently. Dhoni batted brilliantly and finished the match for the team.
The bowlers made a decent comeback in the last match, but they still need to improve a bit. The consistent wicket-taker, Shardul, went wicketless, but Josh Hazlewood got two wickets. Jadeja, Moeen Ali, and DJ Bravo managed to pick up a wicket.
CSK would be hoping to win the Final as this would be the last season for few players.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Kolkata Knight Riders barely qualified for the playoffs but won two back-to-back matches in Eliminator and Qualifier 2, respectively and have qualified for the Final.
The openers, Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer are in great form in the recent matches and scored 46 and 55 runs. At No.3, Nitish Rana is failing consistently, but Tripathi looked back in shape and scored winning runs. The skipper Eoin Morgan has one of the poorest seasons this time. Dinesh Karthik has done a decent job as a finisher.
The bowling unit has taken the team to Finals in IPL 2021. Varun Chakravarthy and Lockie Ferguson have been the major contributors this season. The remaining bowlers, Shivam Mavi and Narine, have also performed well in crucial moments.
Kolkata is in great form and has a great chance of winning the title for the third time.
