After the one-sided loss to Delhi in the first match, it seemed that the Chennai Super Kings would be like the last season but it seems that the bitter memories of the IPL 2020 have been forgotten by the Chennai Super Kings. Chennai Super Kings have won 3 matches in a row and have also reached the top of the points table.
On social media, this team is called the team of old men, but so far the performance of the team has told that there is no break of experience. Every player is contributing his team to win, which makes this team look like a different team. After Delhi, Mumbai, now Chennai is also looking to win the IPL 2021.

It was not decided whether Ruturaj Gaikwad, who scored 5 in the first two matches and 10 in the third match, would be able to play the match today. Speculation was rife to feed Robin Uthappa in his place but Mahendra Singh Dhoni relied on the young face and Gaikwad lived up to his captain’s expectations. In a century partnership with Faf, he scored 66 runs in 42 balls which included 6 fours and 4 sixes. Gaikwad’s innings gave Chennai a strong start.
2.Faf du Plessis
South African batsman Faf du Plessis stayed till the end for the Chennai team. Unfortunately, he could not complete his century but his innings of 95* runs in his 60 balls helped Chennai reach the target which was going to be difficult for Kolkata to overcome even in the event of dew. Faf’s best innings earned him the Man of the Match award.
After the batsmen, it was now the bowler’s turn. Deepak Chahar gave the Kolkata team so much shock at the beginning that they could not overcome it.
Deepak Chahar cleverly out Shubman Gill (0 runs) cleverly caught out at point by Lungi Ngidi. After this, Kolkata’s in-form batsman Nitish Rana (9 runs) was caught out by Dhoni. After this, he also got captain Eoin Morgan (7 runs) who came to the crease and caught by Dhoni. After this, Sunil Narayan (4 runs), who was included in the team, was also dismissed by Deepak Chahar. Deepak Chahar took 4 wickets for 29 runs in his 4 overs spell.
