KKR Playing XI – IPL 2021 CSK vs KKR LIVE: No place for Shakib, Kuldeep Yadav? The inclusion of Venkatesh Iyer in the side has added much dynamism to the KKR XI and Eoin Morgan has finally found his winning combination after an uneventful Phase 1. With their bowling attack firing and the top order returning to their top form, the two-time champions have no reason to tinker with the combination that fetched them dominant wins over KKR and MI.
Lockie Ferguson has been impressive meaning fellow New Zealander will continue to warm the bench, while Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy have combined well to keep Kuldeep Yadav and Shakib Al Hasan out of the XI.
Iyer’s inclusion has seen Narine drop to 8th, potentially leaving no room for Shakib, while KKR are unwilling to take a punt on Yadav, who has struggled with the ball over the last two years.
KKR Probable XI – Venkatesh Iyer, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (C), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna.

KKR Playing XI – IPL 2021 CSK vs KKR LIVE:How can Shakib or Kuldeep get into the side? The Abu Dhabi track has traditionally reaped rewards for spinners and Eoin Morgan will debate the possibility of including an additional spinner in the line-up. Accommodating Shakib Al Hasan in the XI will be complicated, considering how the four overseas have performed in the IPL so far. KKR will either have to drop out one batsman from their line-up, potentially Nitish Rana, to find balance. Another option could see Lockie Ferguson drop out of the XI, but will leave KKR short-handed on pace.
