KKR vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: 3 Players Battles To Watch Out For In Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings IPL 2021 15th Match, 21 April


KKR vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Stakes couldn’t have been higher for Kolkata Knight Riders when they play Chennai Super Kings in the second match of the double-header on Wednesday evening (IST). All the hopes KKR gave to their fans from their opening game win are flushed after two straight defeats. Captain Eoin Morgan is not immune to the criticism. He took some head-scratching decisions against Royal Challengers Bangalore, like taking Varun Chakravarthy out of the bowling attack too soon and completing Pat Cummins and Prasidh Krishna’s bowling spells before the death overs. The team combination is far from perfect and there’s a need for a change if KKR are to remain relevant in the playoff race.

IPL 2021: 3 Players Battles To Watch Out For

1. Pat Cummins vs Faf du Plessis: Amidst all the doom and gloom engulfing KKR early this season, Cummins is one of the few players who has held his own and look confident and in good form. He holds the key once again for KKR.

2. Ravindra Jadeja vs Dinesh Karthik: Jadeja was again Mr Perfecto in the field, but his bowling broke RR’s resistance with Jos Buttler and Shivam Dube both falling to him. Karthik is KKR’s lynchpin in the middle-order and his head-to-head battle with Jadeja could shape the game.

3. Prasidh Krishna vs MS Dhoni: Morgan won’t be repeating the mistake he made in the last match and should keep Krishna for the death overs. That means, KKR’s young bowler could face MS Dhoni.
