Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings Highlights today Wednesday, 21-04-2021 – 15th Match (N), Indian Premier League season 14th from Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Eoin Morgan won the toss and chose to bowl first.
Morgan: On this ground, this [chasing] seems the fashion and hopefully change of ground brings a change of fortune. It’s normally a really good wicket and Chennai are obviously a strong team. Hopefully, looking for a performance tonight and looking for a fresh mindset. In hindsight, chasing in Chennai hasn’t suited us. In this ground, chasing has been productive. Harbhajan misses out, Nagarkoti is in. Narine is back in for Shakib.
Dhoni: Again [the pitch is] a bit tacky, so we have to be watchful for the first few overs. There was less dew last game, so spinners were free to bowl what they wanted to bowl. If you get too much dew, then lengths are different. We’ve rested Bravo for this game, so Ngidi comes in.
Kolkata Knight Riders team: Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (capt), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, Prasidh Krishna.
