Fight for the IPL title today: CSKO or Kolkata? Victory prediction, probability team!

Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders will battle for the 2021 IPL title on Friday. The match will kick off at 7.30pm, India time, at the Dubai International Stadium. CSK reached the final as the winner of the first classification. Kolkata, who finished fourth in the play-offs, secured the final with two consecutive victories.

CSK is the team that reached the final under the captaincy. The team of middle players is aiming for a fourth title when they reach the final under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Despite losing the last few matches, Chennai is expected to be back in good shape in the final. The inaugural partnership of Rituraj Gaekwad and Faf du Plessis will be crucial in the match. The bowling performance of Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja and Deepak Chahar will also affect the outcome of the CSK match.

Kolkata has taken a big step forward in the UAE edition. Eoin Morgan’s captaincy was a blessing to the team. The bowling performance of Varun Chakraborty and Sunil Narine strengthened the team for more victories. Andre Russell is likely to play in the final. However, a sudden change in team structure can backfire. The performances of players like Venkiyesh Iyer, Shubhman Gill and Loki Ferguson will be crucial for Kolkata.
