IPL 2021, Preview: Buoyant Chennai Super Kings Take On Kolkata Knight Riders
A buoyant Chennai Super Kings (CSK), fresh from two convincing wins in their last two matches, will take on struggling Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match here at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.
While CSK has got two wins in three matches, KKR has won just one out of their three matches and is looking out of sorts. KKR began the IPL 2021 season with a win but lost the next two matches. Their batting has flopped and they have been guilty of throwing their wickets away.
The Eoin Morgan side was done in by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batting duo AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell as their bowlers couldn't find an answer to the hard-hitting. KKR's batting in turn wilted under pressure.
Morgan's captaincy has also come under fire. Former KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir, who led the team to two titles, was upset to see Morgan letting RCB off after having built pressure early by claiming two quick wickets.
