IPL 2021: Match 38- CSK vs KKR Live, Preview, Dream11 Prediction, Report and Live Streaming

Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders (CSKvKKR): Match no. 38 of VIVO IPL 2021 will be played between these two teams CSK vs KKR, The match will begin on 26 September 2021 at 03:30 PM IST.

Team winner Prediction:


Key Points:

  • Both teams have played very well in the second leg of IPL 2021 and have won both matches they have played
  • CSK’s batting could struggle against Narine and Chakravarthy
  • KKR has played both its matches at Abu Dabi and will be better versed with the conditions

CSK vs KKR Analysis:

The Chennai Super Kings sit right at the top of the IPL 2021 standings after their win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous match. With seven wins from nine matches, CSK has been absolutely brilliant this season.

It is now going to take on an in-form team that has scripted a stunning turnaround from the first leg of the IPL. The Kolkata Knight Riders have started the second leg with wins against RCB and Mumbai Indians. They have moved up to fourth on the standings and will certainly be looking to lock up a playoff berth as soon as possible.

Match Details:

Date: September 26, 2021
Time: 03:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Live Streaming: Disney+ Hotstar
TV: Star Sports Network.

Pitch and Weather Conditions:

KKR has a slight advantage when it comes to the conditions because it has played both of its matches in Abu Dhabi while it will be the first one for CSK. The weather is expected to be great for cricket, as is most often the case in UAE. The pitch has been a bit on the slower side but still flat and full of runs.

A score of around 170 should be seen as par here.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK):

CSK has been fantastic in IPL 2021. It is a testament to the leadership that they have managed to recognize their lack of intent with the bat which held them back in IPL 2020 and become one of the strongest batting teams of IPL 2021.

Ruturaj Gaikwad has been brilliant at the top, Faf du Plessis has also shown signs of good form, and the middle order is living up to the expectations. In Moeen Ali and Ambati Rayudu, CSK have two players who can attack the spinners and cross the boundary with ease.

Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo can also help provide a powerful finish.

Moeen Ali and Ambati Rayudu are going to be crucial against the KKR spin duo of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakraborty. If they fall early, CSK could be in trouble.

In the previous match, the RCB openers had put pressure on CSK’s bowling and the same could happen against KKR’s in-form batsmen. Abu Dhabi has been a good place for the fast bowlers so far and we think Josh Hazlewood will play a key role with the new ball and Shardul Thakur will also play a key role in the bowlers later in the innings.

Likely XI: Rituraj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Jose Heidelwood.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR):

Brendon McCullum kept talking about fearlessness and it was of no use in the first half of IPL 2021. Somehow it seems that KKR have drowned and KKR is playing like a team which has nothing to lose.

Venkatesh Iyer has made an immediate impact at the top of the order and Shubman Gill is also looking fabulous. We think Gill might really like Deepak Chahar and Hazlewood and he is our pick to be the top batsman for KKR in this match.

Rahul Tripathi scored an unbeaten 74 in the last match and is clearly in good form. Unfortunately, Eoin Morgan and Nitish Rana still have a lot to prove in the middle order. Similarly Dinesh Karthik and Sunil Narine are dangerous but not convinced in recent matches.

Whenever KKR comes on the field, the big name of Andre Russell comes to the fore. We hope KKR use him aggressively and give his best chance to score runs otherwise he is going to be ruined.

KKR’s batting is dangerous but it doesn’t look as established as CSK’s.

We believe KKR’s bowling matches up against the CSK batsmen quite well. Lockie Ferguson is going to trouble them with real pace, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakraborty are going to swing the ball both ways, and Andre Russell is going to use the short ball effectively.

KKR in their current form is probably the most dangerous team to come up against.

Likely XI: Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (Captain), Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Lucky Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Praneek Krishna.
