Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has been a two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champion and as always it has geared up to put out a strong show in the Indian Premier League 2020, the 13th edition of the T20 cricket league. The Kolkata Knight Riders will kick off their game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium located in Bangalore on 31st March 2020.The Knight Riders with Dinesh Karthik as the Captain had failed to reach the playoffs of the last season, as a result of which the franchise had dropped some of the key players from the team such as Robin Uthappa and Chris Lynn. In the IPL 2020 auctions that were concluded, KKR had bought the Australian pacer, Pat Cummins. He is one of the most expensive players in the 2020 auctions. A total of Rs 15.5 crore was spent to get him. The team has also tried to boost up their batting department by buying the winning captain of the 2019 world cup, Eoin Morgan for Rs 5.25 crore.The Knight Riders will be playing their home leg-matches of this year's IPL at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Out of the total 14 matches, KKR will be playing two in the afternoon (starting at 4 pm) and 12 in the evening (starting at 8 pm). Kolkata Knight Riders will be playing its last IPL 2020 league match on 15th May against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.Kolkata Knight Riders’ full schedule, match timing and venue details:31st March 2020, TuesdayMatch: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Kolkata Knight RidersTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Bengaluru3rd April 2020, FridayMatch: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi CapitalsTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Kolkata6th April 2020, MondayMatch: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super KingsTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Kolkata9th April 2020, ThursdayMatch: Rajasthan Royals vs Kolkata Knight RidersTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Jaipur/Guwahati12th April 2020, SundayMatch: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai IndiansTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Kolkata16th April 2020, ThursdayMatch: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight RidersTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Hyderabad19th April 2020, SundayMatch: Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight RidersTime: 4:00 PMVenue: Delhi23rd April 2020, ThursdayMatch: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI PunjabTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Kolkata26th April 2020, SundayMatch: Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight RidersTime: 4:00 PMVenue: Mohali28th April 2020, TuesdayMatch: Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight RidersTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Mumbai2nd May 2020, SaturdayMatch: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan RoyalsTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Kolkata7th May 2020, ThursdayMatch: Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight RidersTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Chennai10th May 2020, SundayMatch: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers BangaloreTime: 8:00 PMVenue: Kolkata15th May 2020, FridayMatch: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers HyderabadTime: 8:00 PMVenue: KolkataKolkata Knight Riders' full squad for IPL 2020:Andre Russell, Chris Green, Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, Harry Gurney, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Furguson, Siddharth, Nikhil Naik, Nitish Rana, Pat Cummins, Prasidh Krishna, Pravin Tambe, Rahul Tripathi, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Shubman Gill, Siddhesh Lad, Sunil Narine, Tom Banton, and Varun Chakravarthy.

KKR vs KXIP Dream11 IPL 2020 PredictionBelatedly by four wins in a row, Kings XI Punjab hopes to preserve the Giant as they face the revival of the Kolkata Knight Riders in a mid-table match here on Monday. Punjab is ranked fifth on the points table after winning five matches in 11 games, while Kolkata is slightly better, as it ranked fourth with 12 points. A Punjab victory would lift them to the top four, while a KKR victory would lift them to 14 points, like the top three teams in the competition, boosting their chances in the play-off. As the race to the playoffs rages, both sides know the value of winning on Monday. KXIP regained its form, ending its five-game losing streak with a victory over third-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore. Since then, the team led by KL Rahul has never looked back, defeating the two best teams in the tournament, the Indians from Mumbai and the capital cities of Delhi, plus Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, they must also win the remaining matches in order for the playoffs to take place. KXIP has hitters that match the style of Rahul, the tournament's top scorer in Running, and Mayank Agarwal. The presence of the illustrious Chris Gayle has inspired the team, and since his inclusion in the eleventh game, the Punjab team has never lost a match. Nicholas Pooran also looks dangerous, but Glenn Maxwell's precarious form remains a concern.KKR will also be enthusiastic after its landslide win over formidable Delhi Capitals and will try desperately to maintain the winning momentum. After an embarrassing loss of eight wickets to Royal Challengers Bangalore, the champion twice regrouped and caused a 59 round loss to Capitals, who is second on the points table. Promoted to the open tour, Nitesh Rana plunged into his new role and took a whirlwind of 81 while he was competing in 115th place with Sunil Narine (64). The spinning leg of Varun Chakravarthy then shattered the mid-ranking of the DC with five points.KKR vs KXIP Presentation ReportThe cricket stadium in Sharjah has slowed dramatically, with new bowlers recently taking over. When the tournament started, Sharjah tape gave a lot of running and support to the batsmen who enjoyed hitting this wicket, but it's not the same anymore. The likes of Siraj and Bolt enjoyed conditions due to the show's early swing, which must also be the case in this game. Interestingly, shooters will be the key to luck on both sides, and hitters should be able to play their natural game once they get used to the rhythm of the surface. However, the dimensions of the floor prefer the mixture because the straight boundaries are very small. With the likes of Gail, Rahul, Buran, Morgan, and Russell, we can look forward to a race festival on Monday. Both teams will look to the chase by winning the lottery, with a competitive total number of 170 in that location. Read more about: IPL 2020, RR vs SRH in DubaiKKR vs KXIP head onBeen Played- 26 | Kolkata won 18 | Punjab won - 8 KKR vs KXIP Fantasy TipsKL Rahul (VC), Dinesh Karthik, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Glenn Maxwell (C), Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan, Varun Chakravarthy, and Lockie Ferguson.KKR vs KXIP Probable Playing XIsKolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan (C), Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi/Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy.Kings XI Punjab: KL Rahul (C/wk), Mayank Agarwal/Mandeep Singh, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell/James Neesham, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, M Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh.KKR vs KXIP SQUADSKolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan (C), Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, Andre Russell, Varun Chakravarthy, Kuldeep Yadav, Sandeep Warrier, Siddhesh Lad, Nikhil Naik, Tim Seifert, Chris Green, Rinku Singh, Ali Khan, Tom Banton, Shivam Mavi, Manimaran Siddharth.Kings XI Punjab: KL Rahul (wk/C), Mandeep Singh, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, Murugan Ashwin, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Krishnappa Gowtham, James Neesham, Sheldon Cottrell, Sarfaraz Khan, Hardus Viljoen, Jagadeesha Suchith, Ishan Porel, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Tajinder Singh, Darshan Nalkande, Simran Singh, Harpreet Brar.Read More About: IPL 2020, CSK VS MI PREDICTED PLAYING XIS

The five-time champion Mumbai Indians did not start well in the second leg of IPL 2021, as they lost to Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs. They did a good job of pick up the wicket early on, but later in death overs, they conceded plenty of runs, which brought about their downfall. Rohit Sharma, who missed the last match due to a niggle, is likely to be back for this match.On the other hand, the Kolkata Knight Riders were stunning against RCB in their previous match, as they bowled Virat Kohli’s team out for just 92 runs. The Knights then chased the target with 10 overs still left in the game. This was one of the biggest victories in IPL in terms of balls remaining. Youngsters are doing great work for KKR at the moment.Match Details:Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Match 34Venue:Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu DhabiDate & Time: September 23rd at 7:30 PM IST, and at 6:00 PM local timeLive Streaming:Star Sports Network and Disney+HotstarPitch Report:The wicket is conducive for the bowlers, and we witnessed some terrific bowling performances from KKR bowlers against RCB on Monday.

That being said, he is a match-winner who has got the necessary backing of the Mumbai team management to play freely. He has scored 176 runs so far in this IPL at an average of 22.Shubman Gill played a sensible knock in the last match against RCB. The 22-year-old talented batter from Punjab scored 48 runs from 34 deliveries in the run chase. Overall, in this year’s IPL, he has amassed 180 runs in 8 matches at an average of 22.5.Top Picks ­– All-RoundersKrunal Pandya can be a good budget pick. He might be struggling to make a big impression in this IPL. However, he is a resilient all-rounder and will be hopeful of delivering well in this match.Andre Russell was brutal with the ball against RCB. His unplayable yorker to dismiss AB de Villiers was one of the main highlights of the match. He ended with the figures of 3/9.Top Picks ­– BowlersTrent Boult is a wicket-taking bowler who swings the ball both ways and is very effective in the powerplay. The New Zealand left-arm quick has scalped 10 wickets in this year’s IPL, with the best figures of 3/28.Varun Chakravarthy likes to attack the stumps every time he runs in, and he did the same against RCB. Bangalore batters struggled to read his variations and fell to his trap. He was the player of the match for his figures of 3/13.Top Picks ­– WicketkeepersQuinton de Kock was cruising well in the match against Chennai Super Kings, but was dismissed when he was batting on 17 runs. He has mustered 172 runs in 7 matches so far in this year’s IPL, with the highest score of 70*.Suggested Playing XI No.1 for MI vs KKR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav (c), Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell (vc), Venkatesh Iyer, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, Prasidh Krishna, Varun ChakravarthySuggested Playing XI No.2 for MI vs KKR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Quinton de Kock (c), Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill (vc), Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Krunal Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Lockie Ferguson, Varun ChakravarthyMI vs KKR Risky Captaincy Choices:Playing in his debut IPL game, Venkatesh Iyer played some breath-taking shots against RCB and fearlessly attacked the top-quality bowlers. He remained not out on 41* runs from 27 deliveries. He is a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams.It will be interesting to see how he adjusts to his role of a number three, but Nitish Rana played quite a few extraordinary knocks in the first phase of IPL 2021, where he batted as an opener. In fact, he scored a half-century against Mumbai Indians.Player you should avoid:Dinesh Karthik bats way down the order for KKR, which is why it’s hard to pick him in the final eleven.Also Read- Virat Kohli to quit RCB captaincy after the end of IPL 2021 season

IPL 2021, MI vs KKR: It's Rohit Sharma vs Varun Chakravarthy as Mumbai Indians eye win

Bolstered by the return of Captain Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians (MI), still agonizing from their defeat against the Chennai Super Kings will look to return against the Varun Chakravarthy (KKR) inspired Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Sheikh Zayed Abu Dhabi Stadium on Thursday night.The Tamil Nadu tweaker won handsome praise from India and RCB skipper Virat Kohli, who said he’s going to be “a key factor when he plays for India” after taking 3/13 in four overs. The 30-year-old’s magical spell included as many as 15 dot balls and Glenn Maxwell was one of his three scalps.When the teams met in Chennai during the first stage of the IPL, Rohit hit 43 off 32 balls and Chakravarthy took 1-27 in four overs, as MI won by 10 runs. Their 10-wicket victory over RCB allowed KKR to climb a little further to sixth spot on the table with six points from eight games.In order to keep their playoff hopes alive, they need to keep winning from here.Also Read- Virat Kohli to quit RCB captaincy after the end of IPL 2021 seasonMissing the services of their talismanic captain and India allrounder Hardik Pandya, MI went down by 20 runs to CSK on Sunday night. Both the players were rested as a precautionary measure, allowing them to recover from their niggles.While there’s still doubt over Pandya’s availability, head coach Mahela Jayawardene had said that Rohit should be returning for the KKR match.In a pre-match presser on Wednesday, MI’s left-arm pacer Trent Boult said: “They (Rohit and Hardik) are both recovering very well. In terms of their selection for the next game, I’m not too sure what’s going on there. But day by day, they are improving. It was probably more of precaution that they had that extra bit of rest the other night against Chennai. But they are obviously two vital players in the XI for Mumbai. And we’re desperate to get them back. So, fingers crossed that they’ll be pretty good to go over the next couple of games.”Lying at the fourth spot with eight games in eight matches, MI desperately need their key players for the business end of the tournament.View this post on InstagramA post shared by Mumbai Indians (@mumbaiindians)He (Rohit) was sorely missed. He is right up there in terms of experience and runs achieved in this format. So, it was a big hole but it was a good decision to make sure (that) he’s 100% with the amount of cricket coming up. If he comes to the eleven, it will be brilliant, but we want to make sure he is 100% fit,” said Boult.Whether Pandya plays on Thursday or not, he will also be seen by the Indian selectors, who chose him ahead of players like Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar for the T20 World Cup, which follows directly from the IPL in the United Arab Emirates.“If Hardik is fully fit, he can contribute with both bat and ball. He’s a very good player for any side. He’s working hard to get himself fit and we’re desperate to have him back,” said Boult.They would blame themselves for allowing CSK to get out of jail in the last game. Having reduced them to 24 for four in six overs, MI’s stand-in captain Kieron Pollard perhaps allowed their opponents to get off the hook when he chose to take off pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Boult and bring on his spinners.Also Read- Former Mr India contest winner Manoj Patil attempts suicide, blames actor Sahil Khan for harrassment

Having said all this, it will be interesting which surface will be used for this match.Probable Playing XIs for KKR vs DC: Kolkata Knight RidersShubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh KrishnaDelhi CapitalsPrithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Lalit Yadav / Steve Smith, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh KhanTop Picks for KKR vs DC Dream11 Match:Top Picks ­– BattersRahul Tripathi is a much-improved cricketer in recent times, and the Indian selectors will be closely watching his progress. He is the leading run-scorer for Knight Riders in the ongoing IPL with 306 runs in 9 innings, at an average of 38.25. Shreyas Iyer is back to his usual form after recovering from an injury. He returned with scores of 47* and 43 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals respectively.Top Picks ­– All-RoundersSunil Narine did really well in the death overs against Chennai Super Kings. Despite going for runs, he managed to pick up 3 wickets. He is a good pick for your fantasy teams. Axar Patel didn’t get enough opportunities with the bat in this edition of the IPL. However, he is proving his worth with the ball, as he has scalped 9 wickets in 6 matches at an economy of 6.66.Top Picks ­– BowlersVarun Chakravarthy has hardly been expensive. Tamil Nadu’s mystery spinner is the go-to go bowler for skipper Eoin Morgan. He has scalped 11 wickets in 10 matches in this year’s IPL at an economy of 6.9. Anrich Nortje has fierce pace, that is troubling the batters immensely. In 2 matches in this year’s IPL, he has scalped 4 wickets at an economy of 3.75.Top Picks ­– WicketkeepersRishabh Pant is the first choice wicketkeeping option for your fantasy teams. Including 2 half-centuries in this IPL, he has scored 272 runs at an average of 38.85, with the highest score of 58*.Suggested Playing XI No.1 for KKR vs DC Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Venkatesh Iyer (vc), Rahul Tripathi, Andre Russell, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Varun Chakravarthy, Lockie FergusonSuggested Playing XI No.2 for KKR vs DC Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Venkatesh Iyer, Prithvi Shaw (c), Andre Russell (vc), Sunil Narine, Ravichandran Ashwin, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan, Kagiso RabadaKKR vs DC Must Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Player Statistics Dream11 Points Vankatesh Iyer 112 runs 184 Rahul Tripathi 306 runs 477 Shikhar Dhawan 430 runs 666 Shreyas Iyer 90 runs 119 Rishabh Pant 272 runs 514 KKR vs DC Risky Captaincy Choices:Shubman Gill is yet to score a half-century in this IPL. He has amassed 202 runs in 10 matches so far at an average of 20.2. You can take a risk and pick as your fantasy team skipper. Shikhar Dhawan is still leading the runs-scorers’ chart with 430 runs in 10 matches so far in this IPL. It’s worth a risk and you can pick him as your fantasy team skipper.Player you should avoid:Prasidh Krishna had a day to forget against CSK. Considering there are plenty of options available in the bowlers’ slot. it’s better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams.Also Read- Virat Kohli becomes first Indian batsman to score 10,000 runs in T20 format

Delhi Capitals will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the second qualifier of the IPL 2021 on Wednesday. Delhi Capitals lost Qualifier 1 by a close fight against Chennai Super Kings for 4 wickets and now its time for them to seize another opportunity they are receiving since they finished at the top of the table. They were very competitive throughout Qualifier 1 and couldn't able to hold their nerves against one of the greatest finishers MS Dhoni. Will they reach the final for the second time in a row we need to wait and watch. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders stormed into second qualifier by defeating RCB in the Eliminator by 4 wickets in the final over of the match. Special thanks to Sunil Narine who picked up 4 wickets initially and later played a handy cameo with the bat. Their spinners are doing a commendable job in this tournament and hardly went for runs. Despite his poor run of form with the bat, Eoin Morgan led the team really well.Match Details: Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Qualifier 2Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium, SharjahDate &Time: October 13th at 7:30 PM IST, and at 6:00 PM local timeLive Streaming: Star Sports Network and Disney+HotstarPitch Report:The ball is gripping and facing spinners will be a huge challenge for the batters on this surface. The wicket will slow down as the game progresses, even the score of 150 is a defendable score. Batting first is still a good option.Probable Playing XIs DC vs KKR:Delhi CapitalsPrithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Tom Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh KhanKolkata Knight RidersShubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Eoin Morgan (c), Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Lockie Ferguson, Varun ChakravarthyDC vs KKR Top Picks for DC vs KKR Dream11 Match:Top Picks ­– BattersPrithvi Shaw played some delightful shots in the last match against Chennai Super Kings and bought up his 4th half-century in this IPL. Overall, in 14 matches, he has notched 461 runs at an average of 32.92 with the highest score of 82. Shubman Gill looked good in the last game against RCB, he was undone by a slower one from Harshal Patel when he was on 29 runs. He is the 2nd leading run-scorer for Knight Riders in this edition with 381 runs in 15 matches.Top Picks ­– All-RoundersThe surface here at Sharjah will be ideal for Axar Patel as the ball is getting plenty of turn. He has scalped 15 wickets in 11 matches in this edition at an economy of 6.52 and even scored 36 runs with the bat. Sunil Narine deserved the player of the match award for his impeccable all-round performances against RCB in the Eliminator. He picked up 4 crucial wickets at an economy of 5.25 and later played a quickfire 26 runs from 15 balls.Top Picks ­– BowlersAnrich Nortje has been lethal with the ball and has troubled the batters in this IPL. In 7 matches so far, he has scalped 10 wickets at an impressive economy of 5.92. Varun Chakravarthy has been pretty consistent throughout this IPL. He hardly bowls a bad delivery and is one of the most trusted bowlers by skipper Eoin Morgan. He anticipates the batter’s move well which makes him one of the successful bowlers in this format of the game.Top Picks ­– WicketkeepersRishabh Pant is the first choice wicketkeeping option for your fantasy teams. His knock of 51* runs from 35 balls provided Delhi Capitals to put up a competitive score against CSK in Qualifier 1. Overall, in this edition, he has scored 413 runs at an average of 37.54.Suggested Playing XI No.1 for DC vs KKR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw (c), Shubman Gill, Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine (vc), Axar Patel, Venkatesh Iyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Lockie Ferguson, Varun ChakravarthySuggested Playing XI No.2 for DC vs KKR Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Rishabh Pant (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, Nitish Rana, Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer (c), Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Varun ChakravarthyDC vs KKR Must Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:Player  Statistics Dream11 Points Sunil Narine 14 wickets 60 runs 593 Varun Chakravarthy 16 wickets 584 Rishabh Pant 413 runs 724 Prithvi Shaw 461 runs 695 Shubhman Gill 381 runs 588 DC vs KKR Risky Captaincy Choices:Shikhar Dhawan hasn’t fired in the 2nd leg of the IPL to the expectations. Considering his current form, he is a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams. Even on the spin-friendly conditions, Lockie Ferguson picked up 2 wickets against RCB in the Eliminator. You can take a risk and pick him as your fantasy team skipper.Player you should avoid:Eoin Morgan has scored only 129 runs in 14 innings so far in this IPL at an average of 12.9. Hence, it’s better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams.Also Read- T20 World Cup 2021 Schedule, All Teams, Host, Time Table, Venue

Chennai Super Kings will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the Final of the 2021 Indian Premier League on Friday, October 15 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The Knight Riders, captained by Eoin Morgan, successfully managed to qualify for an IPL final seven years after the 2014 edition. On Wednesday, the Men in gold and purple beat the Delhi Capitals by three wickets at Sharjah cricket stadium. In the last three overs, KKR need only 11 runs to win, but the DC bowlers made a stupendous comeback. The Capitals’ bowlers got the target up to six runs from two balls. In the end, Rahul Tripathi’s six off Ravi Ashwin sealed the deal for KKR. Before the final, KKR need to be be careful as they lost both their matches against the Super Kings in the league stage. CSK, led by MS Dhoni, qualified for the final after beating the capitals by four wickets on Sunday in Dubai.Match DetailsChennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders, FinalVenueDubai International Cricket Stadium Date &Time:October 15th at 7:30 PM IST, and at 6:00 PM local timeLive Streaming: Star Sports Network and Disney+HotstarPitch ReportThe pitch in Dubai has been an excellent one for batting. But of late, the track has shown signs of slowing down a wee bit. In the ongoing IPL, nine out of 11 matches have been won by the chasing teams.

The left-hander has looked in ominous touch, having scored 320 runs at an average of 40 and a strike rate of 125. The southpaw has scored three half-centuries and must be high on confidence. In the Qualifier 2, Iyer scored a magnificent fifty and saw KKR over the finishing line.Probable best bowler of the matchVarun Chakravarthy– Kolkata Knight RidersVarun Chakravarthy has been excellent for KKR, especially in the UAE leg of IPL 2021. The off-spinner is currently the leading wicket-taker for the Knights, having taken 18 wickets at an economy rate of 6.40. The tweaker has been tough to get away on the slow and low wickets in the UAE.

IPL 2022, RCB vs KKR: RCB up against confident KKR

RCB vs KKR: RCB up against confident KKRBowling has over the years been the Achilles heel of the Royal Challengers Bangalore. He came back to bite them in the first match of IPL 2022 against the Punjab Kings where they failed to defend 205.It will be tough for Vav de Plessis and his men when they take on the Kolkata Knight Riders at DY Patel Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday night. KKR kicked off its campaign with a convincing six-wicket victory over defending champion Chennai Super Kings.The place was a great hunting ground for Kolkata who never lost a match there. Furthermore, they enter the competition with the psychological advantage of beating RCB in three games, including last season's playoffs. Although the RCB facelift was largely unused in the previous game, Hearts would win with a top-flight performance led by Captain Du Plessis, who began his campaign for his new franchise with 88 off 57 balls.Add to that the form of Virat Kohli and the ability of young Anuj Rawat, and RCB is off to a good start. His middle system, anchored by Dinesh Karthik, has plenty of firepowers, including the dangerous David Wylie, Sheriff Rutherford, and Shahbaz Ahmed. With an explosive batting lineup, the main square you'll need to check past champions is bowling.While they still miss the services of Josh Hazelwood, the quick attacks from Willy and Mohamed Siraj, who have forgotten the first start, will have to put their house in order. Siraj, who has failed on more than one count, has to put the night of terror behind him and start over. He gave RCB an extra 22, in which Siraj scored 10 runs.And in an effort to throw the ball wide, the 28-year-old's streak and height dominated all over. Unlike the previous match, RCB should focus on bowling early with Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga. Using the Shahbaz spinner, which only throws one, can also help the RCB.On the other hand, Kolkata ticked most of the boxes against CSK and the depth of their strike could be a worrying factor for the opponent. Starting with Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer, they have potential winners up to No. 8 hitter Sunil Naren.Umesh Yadav will be their main weapon in the power game, and one area they will need to improve is their 47 death overruns in the last three times against CSK. Since the dew factor is important to a team's strategy, winning the lottery would be the obvious choice.previous view - SRH vs RR: Sanju Samson expects RR to play fearless cricket
