IPL 2021 – Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders – Final Match Prediction

The IPL 2021 Final has arrived, and the Chennai Super Kings will compete for the trophy against the Kolkata Knight Riders. CSK has been steady throughout the split season, allowing them to easily advance to the playoffs. It then overcame a stiff battle from the Delhi Capitals to reach the final. KKR’s path to the final has been longer and more spectacular. It was second from the bottom when the second leg of the IPL 2021 began, but seven wins in nine matches have propelled it to the final.

Both of these squads are commanded by seasoned leaders. We’ve also seen them keep to some predictable patterns that we may use to our advantage in a variety of betting markets. The conditions in Dubai will be vastly different from those in Sharjah, which is why we believe you should pursue an entirely different betting approach for this match. The match will take place on October 15, 2021, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Team Previews

Chennai Super Kings (Match Odds – 1.90)

MS Dhoni’s spectacular finishing performance helped CSK win the match against Delhi Capitals. Ruturaj Gaikwad performed admirably and served as the team’s anchor once more, while the emergence of Robin Uthappa came as a pleasant surprise to everyone.

CSK, on the other hand, we feel is less suited to the circumstances in Dubai. All indications are that the game will be high-scoring, and here is where CSK may fail. Sure, it has the batting depth needed to win, and its opening pair is in excellent form, but the middle order hasn’t been convincing in a long time.

In addition, CSK’s bowling assault has underperformed in recent encounters. It was able to win over DC because DC lacked the depth to continue targeting the CSK bowlers in the middle. That will not be the case with KKR.

Deepak Chahar’s lack of wickets in the powerplay must be a major concern, as will the fact that Dwayne Bravo has been running for runs in his last two outings. CSK has played and won huge games before, but its team is clearly beatable.

Kolkata Knight Riders (Match Odds – 1.90)

KKR has orchestrated one of the most spectacular turnarounds in IPL history. The squad came from nothing to gain a spot in the final with some outstanding performances. It’s noteworthy to note that the majority of the players responsible for this reversal are young Indian athletes without a large reputation.

Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, and Nitish Rana are the team’s batters, while more experienced players continue to struggle. Will KKR make the audacious decision to play Andre Russell in the Final if he is available? We believe they will, with Shakib perhaps being left out.

Dubai has given some assistance to the pacers, making Lockie Ferguson’s rile even more crucial. Ferguson is the IPL 2021 season’s top fast bowler, and he has made an impact in every game he has played.

With Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy in top form, KKR’s bowling attack appears to be in good shape. Morgan is also not going to let Ruturaj Gaikwad get set and score runs without quickly challenging him with the short ball. KKR has a good chance of winning the IPL Final and maintaining its record of never lost an IPL Final.

Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss will want to bat first. That is a significant advantage in Dubai, where the last eight matches have all been won by the side chasing. Take this into consideration while placing your bets.

To Win the Toss – Chennai Super Kings – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Kolkata Knight Riders – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The circumstances in Dubai will be ideal for batting. The ball will come off the bat beautifully, and there will be plenty of bounce for the bowlers to work with. A high-scoring contest in which both sides should be able to go beyond 150 points is not out of the question.

The pressure of the IPL Final can cause some teams to play differently, but with CSK and KKR, two World Cup-winning leaders, there will be an aura of calm and predictability throughout the match.

Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match Prediction

We will back the Kolkata Knight Riders to win this game and complete their fairytale comeback. KKR has been in excellent communication since arriving in the UAE, and we believe it is better suited to the environment in Dubai. Their bowling attack is superior to that of the Chennai Super Kings, and it should be enough to compensate for the disadvantage in their batting.

Kolkata Knight Riders has the edge to win this match. Both teams share winning odds of 1.90.

  • KKR has a stronger bowling attack, while CSK has a stronger bowling lineup.
  • The weather is predicted to be favourable for batting, with the pitch being a little bouncy, both of which will benefit KKR.
  • CSK’s middle-order is a little fragile, which we believe KKR can exploit with its stronger bowling lineup.
