Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Match 38: Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Match 38 of the IPL 2021 will be held at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, played between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. The match will be kicked off on 26th September (Sunday) at 16:00 (GMT+6).  

Chennai Seper Kings is just one step away from making it to the playoffs, having won seven of their nine games. They breezed past strong sides like Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the second leg and will be eager to keep their winning streak going.  

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders seemed to have found a great balance after a difficult first half. Because of their excellent net run rate (NRR), the team has surged into the top four. They can’t afford to relax, though, because Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals are only a short distance away. With Chennai Super Kings as their new challenge, Kolkata must step up their match even more to complete a hat-trick of victories.

Weather
This match will be played under sunny, clear skies with a high of 37 degrees celsius.
