Match Preview : CSK played under Dhoni’s Captaincy while KKR played under Eoin Morgan’s Captaincy. Both the Captains are not playing there usual game, but in the last match MS Dhoni played very well and the team reached final, Dhoni’s Contribution of 18 runs in just 6 Balls made the first team to reach in final of IPL 2021. On other hand there is no such important innings from KKR captain Eoin Morgan. In previous match he didn’t score a single run. But if see Top Order of both the teams we see very good innings from the openers. Venkatesh Iyer a man who dominated 2nd Phase of IPL 2021, and also Shubhman Gill given his best. If we see CSK then we see a solid Opening Pair as Ruturaj Gaikwad is only needs 24 runs to get orange cap in this season, and also Faf Du Plesis is in the race of Orange Cap Holder players.

Strength and Weakness of CSK :
Strength : Openers are in good form as Ruturaj Gaikwad is consistently making runs, and also Faf Du Plesis scored 547 runs in 15 matches. And CSK have a good batting lineup as Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and Dwayne Bravo are also playing like a All-Rounder.
Weakness : Bowling is weakness for CSK as not taking wickets early, so other team can make a big score.
Strength and Weakness of KKR :
Strength : KKR’s openers are also in brilliant form as CSK. Venkatesh Iyer scored 320 runs in 9 matches. but when wickets down for KKR it turns difficult to score more run as two most experienced batsman Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan are not in good form.
Weakness : Middle order is weakness for KKR, not playing well as we see in last two matches. Match was about to end in 17th or 18th over but due to middle order it was a close counter. So KKR have to work on their middle over.
