The stage is all set for the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League Final. In the IPL 2021 final, Chennai Super Kings will face Kolkata Knight Riders in a clash of the South and East. Chennai Super Kings beat Delhi Capitals by four wickets in a nail-biting finish to book their finals.
This is their 9th IPL final, the most by any team in the tournament’s history. Every single person has made a significant contribution to Chennai’s triumph in this season. Ruturaj Gaikwad is a contender for the Emerging Player of the Year title, and he demonstrated his worth in Qualifier 1 by scoring a crucial 70 runs in the winning cause.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders kept their cool against Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2 and won by three wickets in the final over, securing their final position. They have a perfect record in the IPL finals, and they are hoping to win the trophy for the third time. The IPL’s second leg has been incredible for them, as they have fully evolved into a formidable team.
Fans and players should expect a clear sky and warm weather in Dubai for this exciting match. The temperature should be around 33°C on average.
Except for Qualifier 1, the last few games in Dubai have been low-scoring contests. In that game, the wicket was ideal for batting, and it should be the same in the IPL 2021 final.
In contrast to the low-scoring matches we’ve seen in the UAE, a high-scoring match could be on the cards. A score of 175-180 might make for an exciting match.
