CSK vs KKR Dream11 Team, Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders- Who will win Today’s IPL match

Share

CSK vs KKR Dream11 Today Match Prediction: There is only one team in the history of IPL that has won after having played the eliminator. And that was David Warner led SRH in 2016. Another overseas captain has the opportunity to level David Warner here. KKR have looked like the team to beat in the second leg and Eoin Morgan has been brilliant as a captain on the field. Though his batting has been beyond pathetic, KKR are winning games even without Eoin Morgan’s contribution with the bat and that’s all their management could ask for from their captain.

CSK vs KKR IPL 2021 Dream11 Prediction

  • Nitish Rana has 383 runs at a strike rate of 122 in this season. He has played some timely knocks in this season for KKR
  • Venkatesh Iyer has 320 runs at a strike rate of 125 in 9 games. He has opened in all the 9 games.
  • Varun Chakravarthy has 18 wickets at an ER of 6.40 in 16 games.
  • Shardul Thakur has 18 wickets at an economy rate of 8.75 in 15 games.
  • Dwayne Bravo has 13 wickets at an ER of 7.88. He is unplayable at death barring a few games. He will be the key to restrict Andre Russell at death if KKR play him.

CSK vs KKR Today Match Prediction

MS Dhoni is playing his 10th IPL final and he will be captaining 9th today. He knows a thing or two about big occasions and he has a ruthless team under his disposal. It will be an uphill task for KKR to beat CSK on flat Dubai track. The fact that KKR are coming after having played 2 back to back games on terrible Sharjah wicket, it will take some doing to adapt to the conditions here in Dubai.

The reports is that Varun Chakravarthy is not fully fit is definitely a worrying factor nonetheless. KKR revolves around their mystery spinners in Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy and the track in Dubai neutralizes both of them.

CSK vs KKR Winning Chances

Though the odds are not favoring a team at the moment, CSK are massive favorites going by the pitch conditions that are on offer. KKR defeated CSK in 2012 final in their home den to stop CSK from winning hat-trick of titles but situation is much different today.

KKR might stand a chance if they play Andre Russell in place of Shakib Al Hasan but they would need Venkatesh Iyer to be bowling some overs if not all his 4 overs as Andre Russell might not be fully fit to bowl.
