IPL 2021: CSK VS KKR Eye Final Turn In Their Trophy
- CSK will take on KKR in the IPL 2021 final on Friday.
- CSK are looking to clinch their fourth IPL title.
- Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have both proven to be incredibly powerful and versatile in second leg of IPL 2021
After 59 matches and 3 Play-off matches, the two teams that will compete in the IPL 2021 final have been determined. To qualify for the final, CSK defeated Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1, KKR overcame RCB in Eliminator 1 and Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2. After back-to-back losses in the Playoffs, the Delhi Capitals finished third. But what a turnaround for Kolkata Knight Riders, who were languishing at the bottom of the standings before the start of IPL 2021’s second leg. They had only won two of their first seven games but won 7 of their next 9 to advance to the final. The management deserves credit for adapting their strategy.
CSK had a tremendous run until the final 3 group stage matches. They had won 9 of their first 11 games but had lost three of their previous 4 before winning the crucial Qualifier 1 against Delhi Capitals. With that victory, CSK secured their 9th appearance in the IPL final, the most by any side in the competition’s history. Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have both proven to be incredibly powerful and versatile in the UAE. Because the final will be held in Dubai, expect the pitch to be a little sportier than Sharjah, which has been on the lower side for the majority of the season. Will teams, however, make any alterations to their lineup and stick with the same 11 or will the first-choice players will make a comeback.
