KKR vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: The 15th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
KKR vs CSK Match Preview
Chennai Super Kings will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the second match of the doubleheader match on Wednesday.
After two consecutive wins, Chennai Super Kings must be high on confidence and would be looking to carry on the same winning momentum when they will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in their next match on Wednesday. After having a disappointing season last year, CSK has had a rough start to IPL 2021 as they lost their first match against Delhi Capitals by 7 wickets.
However, that was the last disappointment faced by the men in yellow as after that they went on to win two consecutive matches, one against Punjab Kings and another against Rajasthan Royals.
Deepak Chahar, Moeen Ali and Sam Curran are the top performers for the yellow army. While Deepak Chahar destructed the middle order of Punjab Kings in their second match by grabbing 4 wickets. Moeen Ali, on the other hand, turned the match against Rajasthan Royals and picked up 3 wickets and conceded only 7 runs in 3 overs. He also contributed well with the bat.
Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, are going to play their first match at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. They are coming into this game on the back of two consecutive losses. We can expect some major changes in their playing XI after two disappointing results in the previous matches.
Kolkata Knight Riders started their IPL 2021 campaign with a bang as they defeated SunRisers Hyderabad in their first match. However that was the only sweetness they tasted as after that they lost two consecutive matches, one against Mumbai Indians and another against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
They looked in a stable form in both the matches, however, they failed to take advantage of the good start their openers provided and hence lost both the games. Wankhede is not providing much assistance to spinners and hence we can see Ben Cutting replacing Shakib Al Hasan in Wednesday’s fixture. With two points for grab, both sides will try their best in Wankhede on Wednesday.
