The 2021 Indian Premier League comes to a conclusion on Friday evening as Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders go head to head in the final in Dubai. CSK beat Delhi Capitals by 4 wickets on Sunday in the Qualifier 1, with KKR also beating Delhi on Wednesday by 3 wickets in the Qualifier 2 in Sharjah. The final begins at 19:30 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Chennai Super Kings are aiming for their fourth IPL title in this game. Although they wobbled at the end of the group stage they were too good for Delhi Capitals on Sunday.
KKR had only won two games before the tournament re-started in the UAE in September. They are looking for their fifth successive win and their third IPL title.
