Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Match 15 of the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Eoin Morgan & Co. come into this fixture with just one win in their IPL 2021 campaign so far. They are currently placed at the fifth position, only 2 points behind CSK. The Knight Riders equip themselves with talented batters like Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik. It’s all about making it count for them.
On the other hand, CSK have been playing fairly well after losing their opening game against Delhi Capitals (DC). They will enter the field after two impressive victories. The MS Dhoni-led side will need more contributions from Rituraj Gaikwad and Shardul Thakur, who have performed below expectations thus far.
Played: 25 | KKR: 9 | CSK: 15 | No Result: 1
