Alright then. The team that shocked its fans last year with a near bottom of the table finish is back in the business this year. Arguably one of the most followed teams in the tournament and a comeback for them has certainly sparked some excitement in this edition of the Indian Premier League. Chennai Super Kings have been the most consistent team in IPL and they’ll be looking to keep their winning juggernaut intact.
Up next in the tournament, CSK are set to take on KKR in what is going to be an all-important match for the two sides. After a brilliant start, Kolkata Knight Riders are staring down the barrel. They’ll be desperate to get back to the winning ways in this upcoming match. The match between the two sides is set to be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Wednesday, 21st April 2021.
Date -21 April 2021
Time – 19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT
Venue – Wankhede Stadium – Mumbai, India
KKR vs CSK Match Toss Prediction
The tournament started with Mumbai being a high-scoring venue, but it soon turned out to be a paradise for slower bowlers as spinners found some purchase. With the weather slowly getting warmer with every passing day, dew is beginning to have a lot less impact. Having said that, the conditions here are still a lot better for batting than at Chennai. If dew doesn’t happen to fall late in the evening, the team batting first should be happy with anything over 175.
KKR vs CSK Match Pitch Report
The Mumbai pitch is regularly seeing scores around the 180-190 mark. We expect a similar total to be par in this game.
There will be cloud cover by the time the game begins with the temperature around 30 degrees.
