CSK vs KKR – Match 38 of IPL 2021 – Match Preview, Dream11 Team, and Predictions

This article will discuss the probable XIs for both teams, match details, Dream11 predictions, and the winning fantasy team for the 38th game of the IPL 2021 between the Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders is scheduled to take place on the 26th of September 2021.

The 2nd placed Chennai Super Kings will take on Kolkata Knight Riders. Both these teams are coming after two wins against RCB and MI in their separate games, and the winner of this game will claim the third straight win in the UAE phase of this IPL.

The Kolkata Riders truly outplayed Mumbai Indians in the last game. KKR chased down MI’s 155 with 29 balls remaining and by 7 wickets. Their young batsmen Rahul Tripathi and Venkatesh Iyer were spectacular against the Mumbai pacers.

CSK was brilliant in both games. Whether it’s the comeback against MI bowlers or the great chasing show against RCB, their batsmen were on the right form. Especially, the opener Ruturaj Gaikwad has been their best batsman in this edition. On the bowling front, their unmatchable death bowling is the difference between them and their opponents so far.

Date & Time: September 26, 2.00 PM Local time, 3.30 PM IST

Probable Playing XIs

CSK would like to play their same playing XI. MS Dhoni praised his players, saying they were taking full responsibility for their roles, and one can expect the same XI on the field once again.

KKR, with two wins back to back, will play their same XI. With no change in the venue, Eoin Morgan’s team will unlikely change their winning combination.

Match Prediction

Both teams have form behind them thus far in the UAE leg of IPL and would like to continue their winning run. As CSK batsmen are always good against spinners, the yellow jerseys will have the upper hand in this clash.

Fantasy Tips 

Batsmen: Ruturaj Gaikwad and Du Plessis are two batsmen who are in their prime form. Ambati Rayudu will also be a valuable addition to the batters squad. Kolkata’s trio Venkatesh Iyer, Shubman Gill, and Rahul Tripathi are a strong addition to the already strengthened lineup.

Wicket-Keeper: MS Dhoni vs Dinesh Karthik – I will go with the one whose team that bats first, as both these players bat deep.

All-rounders: Moeen Ali and Andre Russell are the best picks. Andre Russell’s bowling didn’t click in the last game, and I will pick him only if KKR bats first.

Bowlers: Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur are among the wickets for CSK, along with Varun Chakravarthy in the purple gold.

Captaincy Choices 

Fantasy Team: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Varun Chakravarthy

Captain – Ruturaj Gaikwad

The CSK opener is in some form that his blade will unlikely go wrong.

ViceCaptain – Venkatesh Iyer

If the KKR opener can go storm against the Bumrah-Milne-Boult trio, I don’t think the CSK opening bowlers will trouble him the best. His left-handed batting will be a handy advantage.
