IPL 2021 – Final, CSK ( Chennai Super Kings ) vs KKR ( Kolkata Knight Riders ) cricket match was scheduled today in which CSK won 27 by runs.
Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and opted to bowl against Chennai Super Kings Dubai International Stadium.
MS Dhoni (After Toss): We are looking to bowl first as well, initially it stops a bit and as the game goes on it settles down and toss is uncontrollable and we are prepared for both. We started T20 in around 2005-06 and most of the games have been franchise cricket and in the last five years, there have been a lot of T20 games in international cricket as well. We are playing with the same squad.
Eion Morgan (After Toss): We are gonna have a bowl, the wicket looks good and there’s some dew around. We are going with the same team.

What a finish! Mavi has cushioned KKR by taking a good 15 runs from the CSK total with some nippy bowling. Asked to bat first, Faf du Plessis (86) and Moeen Ali (37*) powered Chennai Super Kings to 192/3 against Kolkata Knight Riders in the summit clash in Dubai. Du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad (32) added 61 runs for the opening wicket to set the platform for a big total. du Plessis falls off the last ball – he misses the Orange Cup by two runs!
