CSK vs KOL IPL Cricket Betting Tips and Live Score: Final, Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders


CSK vs KOL IPL Prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders are set to face off against Chennai Super Kings in the final of the Indian Premier League. CSK put a disappointing 2020 behind to finish in the top 2 in the league this year. Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad have shone with the bat while their bowling all-rounders have been great as usual.

On the other hand, KKR have defied all odds to be in the final. They won five out of their seven league games in the UAE. The side in purple and gold then ousted RCB in the eliminator, before beating DC in a nail-biting finish in Qualifier 2. Venkatesh Iyer has been a revelation with the bat while nobody has had answers to KKR’s mystery spinner in the middle overs. Shakib Al Hasan has performed ably in Andre Russell’s absence.

Win Prediction

DC – 50%
KOL – 50%

It is a repeat of the 2012 final. Although CSK won both the league meetings between the two sides this year, anything can happen in the final. Both teams have a similar style of playing. They have a rock-solid opening combination and a plethora of all-rounders. It will all come down to who holds their nerve better on the day. We are predicting KKR to maintain their 100% record in the finals.

Betting Odds:

Bet365: KOL: 1.90; CSK: 1.90

CSK vs KOL Dream11 Prediction

Ruturaj Gaikwad is just 23 runs away from securing the Orange Cap this year. He is the only CSK player who has had success against spinners while others have struggled. He has 603 runs in 15 games at an average of 46.

Ravindra Jadeja can be banked upon to secure points. He has played the finisher’s role this year while consistently ticking the wickets column. He has 227 runs and 11 wickets in 15 games.

We are tipping Venkatesh Iyer to bring home the points in this game. He has had an important role to play in KKR’s revival in UAE. He has 320 runs in 9 games at an average of 40 with three half-centuries to his name.

KOL Playing XI

Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (C), Dinesh Karthik (WK), Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Shivam Mavi.

CSK vs KOL Today Match Pitch Report

The wicket should be good for batting as seen in Qualifier 1. Bowlers who use variations can succeed on this wicket. 160-170 would be a fighting total. The team winning the toss might look to chase due to the dew factor. Another closely fought game looks to be on the cards.

Predicted Score:
If CSK bats first: 150-160
If KOL bats first: 160-170
