In the first match of the double-header, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are set to take on the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 38th match of IPL 2021 on Sunday, 26th September, at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Chennai Super Kings:
CSK registered a win against RCB in their last outing. MS Dhoni’s men bowled well and restricted RCB to 156/6 at Sharjah. RCB got a great start but after some terrific bowling figures from DJ Bravo, Shardul Thakur and Ravindra Jadeja helped them restrict the batters.
CSK were in control of the chase, with Ruturaj Gaikwad continuing his excellent form with a 26-ball 38. Contributions also came from Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali and Ambati Rayudu and eventually MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina bagged the game for CSK.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
While KKR got a win against MI by seven wickets in their last match with nearly five overs to spare. KKR bowlers were great with the ball as they restricted MI to 155/6 in their 20 overs. Their spinners were economical and conceded only 42 runs between them in eight overs.
KKR looked strong with the chase despite MI’s dangerous bowling line-up. Their new opening combination of Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer got them off to a flying start. KKR lost Gill but Iyer and Rahul Tripathi cruised their way through MI’s bowling lineup.
They moved above MI in the points table, as they increase their chances of making it to the playoffs.
Waging Odds: Chennai Super Kings (1.75) vs Kolkata Knight Riders(2.05)
CSK are the favourites and are priced at 1.75 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹175.
KKR are priced at 2.05 and are the underdogs. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹205 if they come out as winners.
Both sides have a well-balanced and strong team. It is so less to differentiate but CSK have an upper hand in terms of batting depth. CSK’s DJ Bravo would try to bag some early wickets to put pressure while KKR’s Venkatesh Iyer is a player to keep an eye on due to his recent form. It seems CSK is likely to be triumphant.
CSK will win the match.
