Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders clash in Abu Dhabi today
CSK and KKR will have their second clash in IPL 2021 today. Earlier, the first encounter was held in Mumbai, in which Chennai defeated Kolkata by 18 runs.
Today is Super Sunday in IPL 2021. That would mean double dhamaal. Today’s first match is between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. Before the start of the second half of IPL 2021, KKR captain Eoin Morgan had said that he has nothing to lose now. So let’s play fearless cricket. His intention had an effect on the performance of the team. KKR played both their matches beautifully in the second half so far. He chased the target of 93 runs in 10 overs against RCB. So in the second match, the target given by Mumbai Indians was chased in just 15.1 overs. These two victories acted as a lifeblood for KKR, bringing alive their hopes of reaching the play-offs. That is, now the victory against CSK can ease his way forward. But this task will not be easy because Dhoni’s Super Kings is not only riding on the victory chariot in the second half, but is also a contender to play the play-off.
CSK and KKR will have their second clash in IPL 2021 today. Earlier, the first encounter was held in Mumbai, in which Chennai defeated Kolkata by 18 runs. Even in the last 5 matches, the Super Kings have had an upper hand over the Knight Riders. In the last 5 encounters between the two teams, CSK has won 4 matches. So far, both the teams have clashed 26 times on the IPL pitch, in which Chennai Super Kings have won 16 times and Kolkata Knight Riders have won only 9 times.
Stats with Chennai Super Kings
Overall the figures are with the yellow jerseys in today’s match. In such a situation, it will not be as easy for Morgan’s army to hit the ground today as it was in the last two matches. Because today he has to fight not only with a team but also with Dhoni’s cricketing mind. On paper both the teams are strong. The recent game of both is tremendous. The strength of both is their opening pair. But, one thing that goes in CSK’s favor is the experience of the players and the different character of winning in each match. It is clear that Kolkata Knight Riders will have to work hard to win today.
