Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings will square off for the first time in the IPL 2021 on Wednesday at Wankhede stadium Mumbai. This is a very interesting match. Chennai Super Kings will be looking to make a hat-trick of wins while Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing to avoid hat-trick losses.
After facing a defeat at the Delhi Capitals in the opening fixture. The three time championship CSK have announced themselves with convincing wins.
KKR lost two of the three games in Chennai. Including the last encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 38 runs. They will now go to Mumbai for their next couple of games. Meanwhile, CSK secured their first victory of the IPL 2021, beating Punjab Kings (PBKS) by six wickets in Mumbai.
Nitish Rana has been batting well for the side. Whereas Gill and Tripathi have played some handy cameos with the bat. The bowling looks strong with the likes of Pat Cummins, Andre Russel, and Varun Chakravarthy.
KKR has been trying all kinds of permutation and combinations to find a winning formula but that’s not happening.
Some players have to definitely show their class for KKR to come through this crisis.
Pet Cummins one of the best fast bowler.
Rana began with a classic 80 against SunRisers Hyderabad as KKR registered a win in the very first match. His dismissal against Mumbai Indians was crucial and Rana needs to find a balance where his aggression is matched with patience.
Morgan is way too good a batsman to produce just 38 runs in three innings. So it is a matter of time when he begins firing. Sooner the better for KKR.
The two teams have played one another 24 times in the IPL, with CSK .winning 15 matches and KKR winning nine.
