Chennai Super Kings will be squaring up against Kolkata Knight Riders in match 38 of IPL 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The match will commence on Sunday, September 26 at 03:30 PM IST. Here are our CSK vs KKR Dream11 Predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
CSK vs KKR Dream11 Predictions: Preview
CSK’s strong run in IPL 2021:
CSK are currently the table toppers. They are tied on 7 wins with Delhi Capitals but possess a very healthy net run rate. CSK are just a win away from qualifying for the playoffs. They notched up comfortable wins over both Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The fact that they have defended and chased equally easily makes them a fantastic force. Their dynamism and depth in batting has helped them play an attractive brand of cricket. They will be up against a resurgent Knight Riders side.
KKR’s tremendous resurgence in UAE:
KKR had just won 2 out of their first 7 games in phase 1 of the IPL this season. But they have come storming back into the competition in the UAE leg. They first brushed aside Bangalore dismantling them for 92 runs and went on to chase it in just 10 overs. Their performance was impressive against Mumbai too. Post restricting them to 155, KKR chased down the score in just 15 odd overs. They will look to continue their winning run. KKR have already laid down a gauntlet for other teams. CSK will have their task cut out against them.
CSK vs KKR Dream11 Predictions: Team
Dinesh Karthik: He will be tasked with finishing duties for KKR. Karthik is one of the most underrated finishers in the IPL.

Ambati Rayudu: He has been in sensational touch this season.
Shubman Gill: Shubman Gill looks in red hot form. Gill will look to make it count.

Andre Russell: Andre Russell has a fine record against CSK.
Deepak Chahar: He has a good record against KKR.
