KOLKATA VS CHENNAI PREDICTION 2021
So, there you have it. Last year’s side, which surprised its fans by finishing at the bottom of the table, is back in the game this year. The team is arguably one of the most closely watched in the tournament, and a revival for them has definitely sparked some interest in this season’s Indian Premier League. The Chennai Super Kings have become the most consistent team in the IPL, and they’ll be looking to continue their winning streak.
CSK will face KKR in the next round of the competition in what will be a crucial match for both teams. Kolkata Knight Riders are looking down the barrel after a fantastic run. In this upcoming match, they’ll be anxious to get back on track. The match between the two teams will take place on Wednesday, April 21st, 2021, at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS
Things haven’t been going well for them since their first victory of the tournament. The Knight Riders have dropped to fifth position after a string of defeats and will need to rapidly regain their footing. The KKR’s main problem would be that they have plenty of star talent, but none of them seems to be in firing form right now, whether with the ball or with the bat.
The batting of KKR has been the main cause of their two defeats. They were in a good situation against Mumbai Indians when their batsmen played a flurry of poor shots that put them in a bad position. They faced an ABD-Maxwell special against RCB before their batsmen struggled to capitalise on Shubhman Gill’s short but fast start.
Clearly, someone like Sunil Narine, who can provide impetus at the end, is absent from the Knight Riders. With Shakib Al Hasan and Pat Cummins coming in late, the Knight Riders bat deep, but they’ll need their top-order batsmen to do better. In the last match, KKR’s tactic of bowling just two overs with Andre Russell at the death backfired. With players like Prasidh Krishna and Pat Cummins in the mix, they might need to consider other choices if Russell isn’t up to par on match day.
Overall, KKR have a fantastic squad on paper. Their lack of execution, on the other hand, has been evident in their last two games. With the exception of Nitish Rana, none of their batsmen have looked particularly impressive. If players like Eoin Morgan, Shubhman Gill, and Andre Russell will join the team in the future, beating the Kolkata Knight Riders could be a tall order.
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
The Chennai Super Kings have regained their former place in the top four. They finished seventh last year, and although it is still early in the season, being in second place would be a welcome change for them. CSK have the best net run-rate of all eight teams because their leads in the two games they have won have been so large.
It was clear from the start that the Super Kings will rely heavily on their depth this season, and they haven’t disappointed. In all three matches, their bowling has used the slam, boom, and wallop strategy, which seems to be paying off. Even though they kept losing wickets, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, and Faf du Plessis did not cause their run rate to drop in the last match. Down the order, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar provide protection for the top-order batsmen if CSK loses fast wickets.
Another significant difference with CSK this year relative to last year is that they seem to be more fit and athletic. They have gotten many dismissals as a result of excellent fielding in the last couple of matches, and KKR will have to contend with that in this upcoming match. The men in yellow, on the other hand, would be concerned about Rituraj Gaikwad’s form.
Overall, CSK has had a lot of success in the small portion of the tournament that has passed. Suresh Raina, Moeen Ali, and Faf du Plessis have all appeared in top form and could pose a challenge to any team. CSK’s bowling lacks a fast bowler, but if the circumstances are identical to those in the previous match, this bowling will perform admirably. CSK is a well-balanced team, and defeating them would be a difficult task for the Knight Riders.
