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

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL T20 Eliminator Match Prediction

RCB vs KKR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Eliminator IPL 2021

The 2021 Indian Premier League Eliminator sees Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday evening. RCB finished in 3rd place in the group stage, level on points with CSK in 2nd. KKR confirmed their place in the play-offs with a big win over Rajasthan Royals during the final round of group games. The Eliminator begins at 19:30 local time.

RCB showed that although they finished in 3rd place, they should be rated as one of the favourites after beating a full strength Delhi Capitals by 7 wickets on Friday. Virat Kolhi’s side will be fully motivated for this Eliminator.

KKR began the tournament in very poor form but have slowly picked up and come into this match after successive victories. They will be the underdogs but suddenly have plenty of players at the top of their game in the UAE.

Date-11 oct 2021

Time -19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue – Sharjah Cricket Stadium – Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

 

Winner -RCB

 

RCB vs KKR Match Toss Prediction

Fielding first has been the order of the day in Sharjah throughout the UAE leg of the IPL. Both captains prefer to chase in this format.

RCB vs KKR Match Pitch Report

Although the Sharjah pitch has been tough to bat on, the results are somewhat skewed by Rajasthan Royals’ pitiful efforts. With the talent on show, we expect a score of 165-175 to be competitive.

Weather Report

The temperature will not dip below 31 degrees during this evening game in Sharjah.

 

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli (c), Devdutt Padikkal, Srikar Bharat (wk), AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Christian, Shahbaz Ahmed, Harshal Patel, George Garton, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings IPL T20 Qualifier Match Prediction

The play off stage of the 2021 Indian Premier League begins on Sunday evening in Dubai with the top two sides from the group stage coming face to face in the Qualifier 1. Delhi Capitals topped the group with ten wins from fourteen games. CSK finished in 2nd ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore by virtue of net-run-rate. Read on as we preview this game. The play-off begins at 19:30 at the Dubai Cricket Stadium.

Although they lost on Friday, Delhi Capitals will come into this game full of confidence. They beat CSK by 3 wickets on October 4th.

Chennai Super Kings have arrived in the play-offs on the back of three straight defeats. Far from ideal preparation but if they can refocus then they can beat any side in the tournament.

Date – 10 Oct 2021

Time -19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue -Dubai Cricket Stadium – Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Winner –  Delhi Capitals

DC vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

We predict that both captains will choose to bat second should they win the toss. Chasing a total has been the preferred method of success in this year’s competition.

DC vs CSK Match Pitch Report

Delhi Capitals and RCB both posted scores in the 160s on Friday but up until that game, most teams had struggled to post above 135 in Dubai. It is a tacky pitch with some assistance for the pace bowlers.

Weather Report

Clear skies with the temperature remaining above 30 degrees for the duration of the game.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

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

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Capitals IPL T20 Match Prediction

The 56th and final game of the 2021 Indian Premier League group stage sees the already qualified Royal Challengers Bangalore and table toppers Delhi Capitals meet at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. RCB are guaranteed to finish 3rd after missing an opportunity to finish higher by losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday. A win for Delhi Capitals will secure top spot. The match begins at 19:30 local time.

Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a blip in their defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad and it could have been very different had Maxwell not been run-out. We expect to see them again performing at their peak in this match.

Delhi Capitals beat their nearest challengers in CSK in their last match and will see this game as a valuable fixture against quality opposition ahead of the play-offs. They can beat any team even when not at their best.

Date – 08 oct 2021

Time –19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue –Dubai Cricket Stadium – Dubai, United Arab Emirates 

Winner -Royal Challengers Bangalore

 

RCB vs DC Match Toss Prediction

Rishabh Pant has made a habit of winning the toss and electing to field first. Virat Kohli did the same in the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad but this could be the game to get some practice in batting first.

RCB vs DC Match Pitch Report

Sunday and Monday’s games in Dubai saw two low scoring affairs with the highest team total 139-7. We expect the batsmen to have to work for their runs against pace and spin bowlers.

Weather Report

Cloudless skies with a top temperature of 32 degrees for this evening fixture in Dubai..

Royal Challengers Bangalore Predicted Playing 11

AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli (c), Devdutt Padikkal, Glenn Maxwell, Srikar Bharat (wk), Shahbaz Ahmed, Daniel Christian, George Garton, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad meet in Match 52 of the 2021 Indian Premier League on Wednesday evening at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi. RCB are already guaranteed a play-off berth and could still finish in the top two. Sunrisers Hyderabad have already been eliminated, this is their penultimate game. The match begins at 19:30 local time.

Royal Challengers Bangalore are ending the group stage in fine form and have beaten Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings in their last three matches. They are playing fine cricket.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have been the worst team throughout the tournament and have really struggled without Jonny Bairstow in the UAE. However, they have pulled off two wins and could cause a surprise in this game also.

Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

RCB are one of two teams who have chosen to bat first in Abu Dhabi this year. We would also anticipate Kane Williamson choosing to bat first if he wins the toss in a bid to change his sides’ fortunes.

We had a high scoring game at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Saturday’s fixture. The ball comes onto the bat nicely at this venue allowing the batters to really strike through the ball.

CSK have a two point lead at the summit of the group. Read on as we preview this match. This game takes place at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi and begins at 19:30 local time.

Rajasthan Royals are in the last chance saloon and must win this game to keep their hopes alive. They have a very powerful batting line up which can challenge any side on their day.

Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

RR vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

Rajasthan Royals chose to field first after winning the toss in their last match in Abu Dhabi. With CSK electing to insert the opposition in their last match as well, it is pretty clear what the captains will do in this match.

RR vs CSK Match Pitch Report

The pace off bowlers have had the most success at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium so far in the tournament. With the ball not coming onto the bat, it makes big scores a tough ask for the batters.

Weather Report
