After being suspended in May due to a devastating wave of coronavirus in India, the Indian Premier League 2021 is set to end on Friday (October) at the Dubai International Stadium when Chennai Super Kings lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders. Both teams have beaten Delhi Capitals to reach the final with varying degrees of dominance but convincing enough to make them deserved finalists.

GROUND DETAILS


The average first innings score at the Dubai International Stadium is around the 150-run mark. The venue has consistently produced matches that were good for batsmen and for pacers as well. Spinners have been frugal with an economy of 7.1 but have a strike rate of 25.2 to pacers' 18.6.  Pacers have claimed 72.4% of the wickets at the venue this season at a better average of 24.6. It is better to pick one of your premier spinners alongside four pacers for the game.

SUGGESTED CAPTAIN

Shubman Gill has been pivotal in both the playoff matches as KKR got off to blistering starts. His scintillating form alongside his striking ability will once again be the key against CSK who have been excellent in the opening 10 overs.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Gill could score 34-52 runs in this match.

X-FACTORS

Shardul Thakur has been the man with the golden arm for CSK in the second leg with 13 wickets from eight games at an impressive economy of 7.4. He will be key in the middle overs to provide key breakthroughs in the final as well.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Thakur could pick 2-3 wickets in this match.

Dwayne Bravo is a T20 behemoth with loads of experience of playing in several big clashes across the world. He has always contributed in a big way especially with the ball on a good surface.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Bravo could pick 1-2 wickets and score 14-22 runs in this match.

Lockie Ferguson has been sensational with the ball in the second leg of IPL, with 13 wickets from seven matches at a superb economy of 6.5. More impressively he struck every 12 balls which will prove crucial for KKR's fortunes in the final.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Ferguson could pick 2-3 wickets in this match.
