CSK vs KOL Dream11 Team Prediction | 49th Match | Dream11 IPL 2020

Chennai Super Kings will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 49th Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Dubai International Stadium, Dubai. We will provide CSK vs KOL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Chennai Super Kings:

CSK are the first team to be officially out f the race for playoffs as they are currently at the bottom of the points table with four wins and eight losses, and 8 points.

After three consecutive losses, Super Kings won a match against a top side this season. They made changes again to the team and tried new players. Mitchell Santner played his first match this season, and Monu Kumar made his debut in IPL in the last game.

The youngster Ruturaj Gaikwad played brilliantly in the last match by scoring an unbeaten fifty and led his team to victory. Faf du Plessis and Rayudu have also been playing well, and scoring runs consistently this season. Jagadeesan hasn’t got many chances, but he looked like a good player by how he played in his first match.

Sam Curran has been the best find for CSK this season as he has played the role of allrounder perfectly. MS Dhoni hasn’t been able to finish the games as he had done in the earlier seasons. Another allrounder, Ravindra Jadeja, has been in great touch with the bat but has underperformed with the ball.

In the bowling department, Deepak Chahar struggled early in the season to pick up wickets, but later, he bowled very well and picked up wickets. Imran Tahir is yet to pick up a wicket as he went wicketless in the last two matches. Even though it was their first match, Santner and Monu Kumar bowled decently.

As MSD said earlier in the post-match presentation, they have nothing to lose from here, and they would be playing the remaining matches for their pride and as a part of the preparation for next season. So we can expect a good fight from the team.

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis will open the inning for CSK.
  • The middle-order will comprise of Ambati Rayudu, N Jagadeesan, and skipper MS Dhoni.
  • All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, and Mitchell Santner will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Ravindra Jadeja, Imran Tahir, and Mitchell Santner will form the spin attack of the team.
  • Monu Kumar/KM Asif, Deepak Chahar, and Sam Curran will be the team’s pace attack.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders are in a tricky situation as they are currently at the 5th position on the points table with 6 wins and 6 losses and a total of 12 points.

Knight Riders have either played brilliantly or looked completely on the ground so far in this season. Shubman Gill has played decently and scoring runs from the top, but he does not get enough support from the other end. Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi, except for a couple of matches, both the players have looked out of form this season.

Another big concern for KKR is Dinesh Karthik, who has struggled a lot this season and has not performed in most of the matches. Eoin Morgan has played his role decently in the middle order and has scored a good amount of runs.

Even though Andre Russell has not done much with the bat, he is a player who can get into form in any match and score big runs for the team. But he is struggling with injury, and it’s not clear whether he will continue to play or not in other matches.

In the middle order, Sunil Narine played well recently, but he has been wicketless in the last two matches. Pat Cummins is also bowling well but has struggled to pick up wickets. Ferguson, after his first match, hasn’t appeared to be at his best. 

The youngsters have also done a decent job so far in this season, and Varun Chakravarthy has been bowling well for KKR and has consistently picked up wickets in every match.

  • Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana are likely to open the innings for KKR.
  • The middle-order consists of Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik, and skipper Eoin Morgan.
  • Sunil Narine and Pat Cummins will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine will handle the spin attack of the team.
  • The pace attack will be Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, and Lockie Ferguson.
