IPL 2021 Match 3
Time : 7:30 PM IST
Date : Saturday, April 10 2021
Venue : MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
The IPL 2021 is being played under the cloud of rising Covid-19 cases so teams have to be clear in their minds about the uncertainties of shifts in matches and even the tournament being cut short in schedule. So it is important for teams to start strong and collect more points in the points table quickly.
Both SRH and KKR have won titles earlier but in recent years they saw a dip in their fortunes. Both teams are equally potential, let’s see which one is about to come on top in this exciting match.
The time when SRH was a force in the IPL was down to its excellent bowling attack. In that sense, SRH seems set to have one of the best bowling attacks in the entire competition. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar is an IPL legend and is back to full fitness. He is going to lead the attack alongside players like Rashid Khan, T Natarajan, and Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Sharma, and Khaleel Ahmed.
The strength of the batting comes from the top-order. David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Kane Williamson should find a place in the eleven making the batting quite strong. Bairstow, in particular, is in terrific form and one to watch out for.
There is a lot to like about KKR and it has some of the biggest names in T20 cricket on its roster. Eoin Morgan will lead the team and he is one of the sharpest T20 minds in the entire game. They also have the most feared T20 all-rounder in the world (Andre Russell), and a few IPL legends in their team.
Shubman Gill was the highest run-getter for KKR in IPL 2020 but his strike rate left a lot to be desired. His opening partner is also not set in stone. Nitish Rana is the probable choice but you cannot rule out Rahul Tripathi either.
Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell will be the main threats in the middle-order and no one can possibly complain of having them around! The likes of Karun Nair, Dinesh Karthik, and possibly Gurkeerat Singh Mann all have a chance of making it into the eleven as well.
As we saw in the inaugural encounter of IPL 2021, the Chennai track is not a completely bowling-friendly surface. It has enough purchase for the batsmen as well, provided they take their time to find their footing on the track.
