KOL vs CSK Dream11 Team Prediction | Player Stats | Dream11 IPL 2020

Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Chennai Super Kings in the 21st Match of Dream11 IPL 2020 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will provide KOL vs CSK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Dream11 Tips.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Kolkata Knight Riders have performed decently so far as they are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 2 wins and 2 losses and a total of 4 points.

Knight Riders is one of the strongest teams in IPL and has many match-winning players, but they haven’t been able to perform at the right time. Their main drawback has been their batting order as they are changing the order every match.

Sunil Narine hasn’t been as effective at the top as he was in the past seasons. Dinesh Karthik is also looking out of form, and he put pressure on the team in the last match by promoting himself and Pat Cummins up the order rather than Morgan and Tripathi, who smashed the bowlers and almost won the match for the team.

Bowling is looking good with Pat Cummins back in form after the first match; Shivam Mavi and Nagarkoti also have been hitting the good lengths. Varun Chakravarthy has also been picking up wickets consistently, and Andre Russell has been bowling brilliantly at the death overs and picking up wickets.

There have been many rumors about shifting the captaincy to Eoin Morgan as Dinesh Karthik hasn’t made good decisions on the field.

  • Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine/Rahul Tripathi are likely to open the innings for KKR.
  • The middle-order consists of Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, and Eoin Morgan.
  • All-rounders Andre Russell and Pat Cummins will be crucial in the lower middle order.
  • Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy will form the spin attack of the team.
  • The pace attack will be looked after by Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi.

Chennai Super Kings:

After three consecutive losses, CSK made a good come back by winning the last match against KXIP by 10 wickets. They are currently at the 6th position on the points table with 2 wins and 3 losses, and 4 points.

Shane Watson looks back in form after 4 matches as he scored unbeaten 83 runs from just 53 balls, and Faf du Plessis has continued his superb form scoring 87* runs from 53 balls. The main concern for Super Kings will be their middle order as Jadhav and Dhoni are unable to hit the big shots.

Super King’s bowlers have also struggled in this season as they haven’t been able to pick up wickets in the power play, and they don’t have any fast bowler who can bowl over 140+ speed. They have a lot of batting depth, but with Sam Curran hitting some big sixes, we all know what Bravo is capable of batting.

Chawla has been picking up wickets consistently, but at the same time, he has gone for many runs. After 4 matches, Jadeja bowled well in the last match, picking up wickets and controlling the flow of runs. 

If Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar bowl well and start picking up wickets in the power play, it will be tough to stop the Super Kings from winning the matches.

  • Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis will open the inning for CSK.
  • The middle-order will comprise Ambati Rayudu, skipper MS Dhoni, and Kedar Jadhav.
  • All-rounders Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, and Dwayne Bravo are likely to be the team’s lower middle order.
  • Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar, along with spinner Piyush Chawla, will be the team’s core bowling attack.
