Preview for KKR vs CSK GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
In the 15th match of IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Chennai Super Kings.
Kolkata Knight Riders have struggled in IPL 2021 so far. After a dominant performance against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their season opener, KKR have made plenty of errors and have lost matches that they should’ve won easily. In the last match against RCB, KKR had their opposition reeling at 9 for 2. However, AB De Villiers and Glenn Maxwell were at their best and scored 204 runs. During the run-chase, KKR kept losing wickets at regular intervals and the target became too insurmountable to be chased.
Chennai Super Kings are arriving into the game after steamrolling past their opponents in the last two matches. They are now second in the table and have the highest NRR of +1.194. In the last game against Rajasthan Royals, Dhoni’s captaincy became the centre of focus once again as he smartly helped shut out the RR batsmen during the run-chase.
Moeen Ali scored 26 runs and then registered figures of 3 for 7 in three overs to seal the win for his team.
