On Thursday, October 15, 2021, Chennai Super Kings will face Kolkata Knight Riders at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the 60th match of the Indian Premier League 2021.
- Kolkata Knight Riders are on a winning streak after defeating RCB and DC back-to-back. In the previous two seasons, KKR has failed to make the playoffs.
- Chennai Super Kings had already qualified into the finals after defeating the Capitals in a close encounter. CSK lost to MI last year in the finals.
- Both the teams would give a tough competition to each other and will aim for the trophy.
The maximum temperature in Dubai on Friday would be 35°C. The humidity level would be around 60%.
Batsmen will enjoy the pitch at Dubai International Stadium. The IPL 2020 average first innings score in Dubai was 171. Dubai’s hot and dry climate favours spin bowling as cracks grow on the pitches. The fast bowlers are aided throughout the early overs.
The sandy and dry nature of the pitch becomes apparent after the first few overs, making it easier for the batsmen to play their shots.
Pacers normally take the most of the wickets, with spinners being the most economical. Pacers took an average of 7.2 wickets per match in the IPL 2021 in Dubai, while spinners took half of them.
Star Players in Head-to-Head Battles
- Batsman to Look for KKR:
- Rahul Tripathi is in great form and has scored 395 runs from 16 games this season with a strike rate of 127.00, his teammate, Venkatesh Iyer has been blasting throughout the season with his batting skills.
- Shubman Gill has scored 407 runs against CSK whereas Eoin Morgan can also be a threat to the super kings.
2. Watch out for this KKR Bowling Specialist!
- Varun Chakravarthy has taken 17 wickets while facing CSK, which makes him a perfect specialist.
- Shakib has a total of 12 wickets, with a best of 3/17 against the Kings.
- Sunil Narine, the mysterious spinner is also a solid contender as a bowling expert.
3. KKR Gamechanger Candidate
- The Kolkata Knight Riders’ batting was tremendous in the previous match. Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer are key for KKR in terms of scoring and getting the team off to a good start.
Whereas for CSK:
- Batsman to Look for:
- Ruturaj Gaikwad’s form this season so far has been outstanding and he has managed to turn odds into CSK’s favour with his heroic batting, while Ravindra Jadeja has been a standout finisher.
