IPL 2021 Final CSK vs KKR Head to Head: Three-time champions Chennai Super Kings aim to continue dominance over Kolkata Knight Riders

  • IPL 2021 has been played in two parts this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and after a long wait, the final is finally here.
  • The summit clash will see MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings clash with Eoin Morgan’s KKR at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.
  • MS Dhoni-led CSK has won the IPL title thrice and after putting on a dismal show in the 2020 season in UAE.
  • Super Kings made a remarkable comeback this year and some fearless cricket from the franchise has seen Dhoni’s men reach the finals.
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, and Dwayne Bravo have all played their roles to perfection and under Dhoni’s leadership, the bunch has proved to be good on days when it has mattered.
  • Moving to KKR, Eoin Morgan’s side was completely down and out in the India leg as the side had won just two games out of seven. However, travelling to the UAE brought about a change in fortunes.
  • Venkatesh Iyer’s inclusion provided the much-needed boost to the batting lineup and the Kolkata-based franchise has been playing fearless cricket.
  • Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, and Rahul Tripathi have done their job too this season.
  • Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy have acted as perfect partners in crime and the duo has spun a web over opponents this season
