KKR vs CSK Dream11 Team: The Match 21 of the Dream 11 Indian Premier League 2020 will witness Kolkata Knight Riders lock horns against Chennai Super Kings. The Chennai team is coming after a chest-thumping win against Kings XI Punjab. The bowlers conceded a par score on the board and the opening pair of Watson-Du Plessis displayed dominance and helped the team to win the match by 10 wickets. Shardul Thakur has come good for the team since he was inducted into the squad after a team’s brief hiatus in the league. Chahar has also been economical and churning out key wickets in alternate matches. If they continue the same form, they will be unstoppable like the earlier seasons of IPL.
On the other side, Knight Riders who boasts of a well-balanced line-up faltered in Sharjah where they conceded too many runs in the death overs and ultimately lost the game. The best bowler of the team was Andre Russell who bowled his full quota of 4 overs. In the batting department, Nitish Rana helped to set a stable platform for the side and then Morgan and Tripathi put up a very good performance before the team fell short of 18 runs. The team will like to see a more complete performance to register a win and hold promise for the rest of the tournament. It will be interesting to see which team comes over the top in the KOL vs CSK Dream 11 prediction.

Weather Report- There are no chances of rain at Abu Dhabi. It will be a full game as usual.
KOL will look to have their winning momentum back with them. Sunil Narine can be dropped with a replacement, coming in; Tom Banton.
CSK looked really well in the last game and will most probably play with the same 11. Watson and Faf looked fierce with the bat and remained not out in the chase.
KOL will win this match, if they perform the same way, they have done it in the last game, although, they lost it. With Gill and others at the top, they have to be excellent with their batting, they can start with some good runs on the board. They have to take the burden of scoring runs at the top, but will have a slight relief of having someone like Morgan and Russell in the middle order, who can finish strongly in the end. CSK has a balanced team, but have totally failed to perform upto their standards, but they did good, like what we saw in the last game, where the top order impressed us so well. They also have a nice chance of winning this match, but it will only happen if the top order shows some intent again, to get a huge score in the powerplay and also a good bowling performance. Here is the probable XI for KOL vs CSK Dream 11 Prediction
KOL vs CSK Dream 11 Playing XI
KOL Playing 11 (expected)
D Karthik (c & wk)
CSK Playing 11 (expected)
Faf du Plessis
MS Dhoni (c & wk)
E Morgan- England national team’s captain is looking in great touch this year, with scoring 136 runs in 4 innings. Along with stabilizing the team in middle overs, he has helped their cause in the death overs and helped the team to chase a good total on the board in the last match. So, he can be a good captain pick for your fantasy team.
F Plessis- The most consistent batsmen in the CSK batting unit with 282 runs in 5 matches and will be a key player for the team in the upcoming matches. He can be the perfect choice for the captaincy slot to increase your chances of winning in the Dream 11 prediction.
S Watson- An integral part of IPL since its inception in 2008 and one of the few Aussie cricketers who has been praised a lot for his contribution to the IPL and franchises over the years. After a bad form in the first 4 matches, he came back strongly with an unbeaten 83 to help the team win the match win by 10 wickets and can be your captain pick in the KOL vs CSK today match prediction.
S Gill- A talented young player who has featured in 2 ODIs for India and has shown amazing progress in the domestic circuit. In 4 matches, he has scored 152 runs and is in a good form and can surely increase your fantasy points.
A Rayudu- The player who has been the driving force of the CSK team and can be a player who can turn the match in their favour by his outstanding composure and ability. It would be an excellent choice to make him a vice-captain, as he has a role to play in the team, and will definitely put up a decent score on the board.
A Russell- A phenomenal all-rounder who has been one of the key players for the KKR team over the years. Apart from the contribution from the bat, he can be a quite lethal weapon for the team in the bowling department. Although, he has not been making enough runs, still has shown enough promise to keep him as your vice-captain.
