Kolkata Knight Riders will be up against Chennai Super Kings in the 15th fixture of IPL 2021.
KKR began their IPL season with a win over SRH, but since then, things have gone awry for Captain Morgan and co. With two dismal defeats against MI and RCB, the side needs plenty of innovations and a fresh approach. In the last game against RCB, De Villiers and Maxwell ran amok and helped the side post over 200 runs. KKR kept losing wickets during the run-chase and ended up losing by 38 runs.
CSK are flying high at the moment and currently occupy the second position courtesy of their league-best NRR. Dhoni's men were sublime against Rajasthan in the last match and Moeen Ali produced a terrific all-round display to seal a pretty comfortable win.
Let's take a look at the best fantasy playing XI from the two sides:
