KKR vs CSK: Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Chennai Super Kings in the 15th match of IPL2021. Both sides have had a contrasting start to the tournament so far.
Chennai Super Kings
After losing the first game of the tournament, Chennai Super Kings have made an assured comeback in the tournament. They are coming into the contest on the back of two back to back victories. MS Dhoni and Co. registered a 45-run victory over Rajasthan Royals on Monday. The depth in their batting depth makes them a team to beat this year. Despite losing wickets at regular intervals, CSK managed to score 188 runs in 20 overs. Good performance from the spinners and Sam Curran helped the side restrict Rajasthan Royals on 143 in the second innings.
You don’t expect much change when it comes to Chennai Super Kings. Rituraj Gaikwad has been enduring a lean run in the season. It remains to be seen if Uthappa replaced the opener in the next game. Also, there have been murmurs regarding the inclusion of Lungi Ngidi in the side. However, with the bowling department doing well till now, he might have to wait for a bit longer.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
The KKR fans have been left disappointed once again in the ongoing tournament. The big guns like Andre Russell, Eoin Morgan are yet to hit the ground running with their performances. In three games, Kolkata have only managed to claim a solitary win. Eoin Morgan would be under lot of pressure when he takes the field against CSK. Another defeat from here would leave them in a bad position.
With Shakib not performing neither in batting or bowling department the way the team would have wanted him to, Sunil Narine might make a comeback in the squad.
