Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL T20 Final Match Prediction

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.

Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL T20 Qualifier Match Prediction

Wednesday’s Qualifier 2 brings together Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Delhi Capitals won the group stage but have lost their last two games against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings. KKR finished 4th on net-run-rate but have won their last three games. Read on as we preview this match. The Qualifier 2 begins at 19:30 local time.

Delhi Capitals have very quickly gone from being the all-conquering table-toppers to losing two in a row and a game away from elimination. However, they have match-winners in all departments and beat KKR by 7 wickets in April.

KKR are the momentum team in the tournament and now only two wins away from winning the 2021 IPL. They beat Delhi Capitals in their last meeting in late September and will fancy their chances against anyone.

Date -13 sept 2021

Time -19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue –Sharjah Cricket Stadium – Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

Winner-Delhi Capitals

DC vs KKR Match Toss Prediction

Both teams will want to field first in this crucial game. RCB won the toss and chose to bat in Sharjah on Monday before being beaten by KKR.

DC vs KKR Match Pitch Report

The Sharjah pitch is favoured by the spinners with batsmen from all teams struggling to clear the ropes. Expect any total over 150 to be enough to win the match.

Weather Report

Clear skies with the temperature falling from 33 to 31 degrees during the match in Sharjah

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Tom Curran, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals IPL T20 Match Prediction

Match 54 of the Indian Premier League sees Kolkata Knight Riders take on Rajasthan Royals at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah in Thursday’s late game. A win for KKR will secure their place in the play-offs whereas a win for Rajasthan Royals will open the door for other teams to potentially snatch 4th place. Read on as we preview this game. The match in Sharjah begins at 19:30 local time.

It is a simple equation for Kolkata Knight Riders who know that a win in this game will make it virtually impossible for Mumbai Indians to overhaul their net-run-rate. They have won two of their last three games in the 2021 IPL.

Rajasthan Royals made life very difficult for themselves by posting only 90-9 against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday. As a result, they must win this game by a large margin to give themselves any chance of progression.

Date -07 oct 2021

Time –19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue- Sharjah Cricket Stadium – Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

Winner -Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR vs RR Match Toss Prediction

Rajasthan Royals need a big net-run-rate swing so we expect them to bowl first and then give themselves the chance to chase a target in the shortest possible time. Eoin Morgan is always comfortable fielding first.

KKR vs RR Match Pitch Report

Making a half-century has proved to be very difficult for even some of the most form batsmen in the tournament in Sharjah. Expect a tacky pitch.

Weather Report

Clear conditions with evening highs of 33 and 32 degrees in Sharjah.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing 11

Ventakesh Iyer, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy, Shivam Mavi

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Shivam Dube, Glenn Phillips, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Kuldip Yadav, Shreyas Gopal, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

The match begins at 19:30 local time.

Rajasthan Royals showed that they have not given up on the 2021 IPL play-offs with a convincing win over table toppers CSK in their last game. That victory will give them a huge injection of confidence at this crucial time.

Mumbai Indians returned to losing on Saturday and are struggling with the bat in the tournament. However, over the years they have always managed to find victories when it really matters.

Delhi Capitals have a powerful batting line-up and a suite of match changing bowlers. They beat CSK by 7 wickets earlier in this year’s competition.
