KOL vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: 15th Match, IPL 2021

KOL vs CSK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021. Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings will play against each other in the 15th match of IPL 2021 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

Except for the first match, Kolkata Knight Riders have not been able to perform up to the expectations as they have won only one out of the three games and are currently at the 5th position on the points table with two points. They lost the last match by a margin of 38 runs.

The openers Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill have performed well so far and provided a decent start in all of the matches. At No.3, Tripathi is also doing an excellent job maintaining the run rate provided by the openers.

Eoin Morgan has been struggling very much to score runs, and so has been the case with Shakib Al Hasan. Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell have played some big shots in one of the matches so far. But they have not been able to finish the matches for the team.

The bowling unit, which was in good rhythm, got thrashed entirely in the last match as they conceded a lot of runs. Pat Cummins and Prasidh Krishna have bowled well so far and picked up wickets consistentlyVarun Chakravarthy managed to pick up two wickets in the last match.

Kolkata Knight Riders need to perform better in the middle-order, or else the loss is inevitable for them.

Chennai Super Kings:

Chennai Super Kings are performing pretty well as they have won two back-to-back matches and are currently at the 2nd position on the points table with four points. The bowlers, especially the spinners, bowled brilliantly in the last game, and as a result, they won the match comfortably by 45 runs.

Faf du Plessis is in brilliant form as he is playing aggressively at the top, but he is not converting the excellent start into big ones. The youngster Ruturaj has not been able to score runs which are putting pressure on Faf, and he needs to work out a way very soon, or else it will be difficult for CSK.

Moeen Ali has been doing a fantastic job at No.3 by scoring runs quickly and also bowling some good overs in the middle. Raina, except for the fifty in the first match, hasn’t achieved much in this season. The other middle-order batsmen, Rayudu, are playing good cameos, but he also needs to stay a little longer at the crease. 

unnamed

Sam Curran and Jadeja are in excellent form with the bat and play the finisher’s role very well. Dhoni and Bravo also batted well in the last match, scoring some crucial runs for the team. The bowlers complement the batting unit very well as one or the other bowlers have been picking up wickets in every match.

Moeen Ali and Jadeja bowled brilliantly and changed the course of the last match by picking up three and two wickets, respectively. Sam Curran and DJ Bravo have been bowling well by controlling the flow of runs and picking up wickets consistently. Shardul Thakur managed to pick up a wicket in the last match.

As they are playing at Wankhede, CSK needs one of their batsmen to anchor the innings to post a big total and try to defend it.

The pitch here is a batting paradise. The fast bowlers get some help in the initial overs of the match, and batsmen need to be careful. Chasing here is considered to be easy because of the high dew factor. The last couple of games have been high-scoring matches.

(The chasing team at this venue has won four out of the six matches so far in this season)
