The 15th match of IPL 2021, the second of Sunday’s match, will be played between the Chennai Super Kings and the Kolkata Knights Riders at Wanhead Stadium in Mumbai. Encouraged by two consecutive victories, the Chennai Super Kings team will descend on the difficult Kolkata Knights with the intention of continuing its winning campaign.
CSK did not start well this year after a poor performance in the UAE last year and suffered a seven-time defeat by Delhi Capitals in the very first match, but was led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni). The team returned to their familiar style.
CSK opened their account this season, winning against the Punjab Kings for Deepak Chahar’s spectacular performance. Apart from that, two players from England Mouen Ali and Sam Karen also played an important role in their two previous victories.
At the same time, this will be the first match of the season for the KKR team in Wankhead. They have come this far after suffering two consecutive defeats, and in such a situation the Dhoni-led CSK has the upper hand. KKR, captain of Eoin Morgan, may make some changes to the team to get your campaign back on track.
Given how successful Moeen was with the bat and ball for CSK in Wankhede, the English universal player. At the same time, the KKR batsman in the form of Nitish Rana was chosen as the country’s deputy captain, as the burden of scoring early with the new ball fell on him.
Apart from Rana, Schubman Gill also found a place in the team, who often gives a good start to KKR with fast results. From CSK we chose Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina in shape, given their recent shape. It is important to mention that none of the CSK basketball players have played big innings yet.
Goalkeeper: Dinesh Kartik
MS Dhoni’s poor outing so far meant that he again failed to find a place in our fantasy XI; leaving us KKR wicket keeper batsman Dinesh Kartik. Killing the order, Karthik has already played the role of finisher once, but consistency is still a problem with the veteran.
Universal: Andre Russell, Mouin Ali, Sam Curan
With the exception of Moeen, Andre Russell and Sam Quran found a place on the team as universal; given the impact they are able to have in a given situation in the match. In the 25 balls that the Qur’an has faced so far, the English youth has enjoyed a strong blow of 208, while he has chosen three wickets in three games with an economy of 6.66. Russell, on the other hand, has yet to face the bat, but he already has six gates in his name in three games.
Bowler: Prasid Krishna, Varun Chakravarti, Deepak Chahar
Among the bowlers we have kept the combination of up to two rhythms and one spinner. KKR youth Prasidh Krishna is largely expensive and has four wickets over three games, but is expected to get the most out of Wankhede’s surface, which often has something for pacers. So far, Deepak Chahar has certainly taken full advantage of this with four wickets in his name. Spinner Varun Chakravarti has taken the mantle from Sunil Narine as the team’s leading tweeter and is also effective with three cartridges in his name.
Chennai Super Kings vs. Kolkata Knight Riders Dream 11: Dinesh Kartik, Faf du Plessis, Schubman Gill, Suresh Raina, Nitish Rana (deputy captain), Andre Russell, Moyne Ali (captain), Sam Quran, Prasid Krishna, Varun Chakravarti, Deepak Chahar.
