Get ready to witness a high-intensity match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday. The finalists of 2012 will once again encounter in 2021 in Dubai. Watch CSK vs KKR in the IPL final on YuppTV and experience a high vibe like never before.
After a disastrous IPL in 2020, Chennai Super Kings bounced back in style and grabbed the second spot on the points table. Chennai slammed Delhi in Qualifier 1 and picked an early entry to the finals. Kolkata had a depressing first half but made a fabulous comeback in the second phase of IPL in the UAE. KKR won their five of seven games in the UAE and entered the playoffs with a better run rate over Mumbai Indians. The contest between two powerful teams in the final match of cricket’s biggest league is a delight to watch.
This is Chennai Super King’s ninth IPL final and Kolkata Knight Rider’s third appearance in the tournament’s final. While Dhoni-led Chennai has won the coveted title in 2010, 2011 and 2018, Gautham Gambhir guided KKR to two IPL victories in 2012 and 2014.
Kolkata played an impressive cricket on Wednesday to kick Delhi Capitals out of the race. Chasing a target of 136, Kolkata openers Venkatesh Iyer and Shubman Gill provided a blistering start to their side. After losing both the openers, Kolkata lost the next five wickets in just 7 runs. The middle-order fell miserably as four batsmen got out for ducks. In the end, Tripathi smashed a six off Ashwin and gave his team a 3 wicket win. Kolkata Knight Riders had a dream run ride in the UAE leg of the tournament. Their top-order performed consistently at a quick pace, and their bowlers curbed oppositions several times. Eion Morgan led Kolkata is just one step away to resuscitate the lost glory.
