Expected lineups of 2 teams
Having said that, will the 2 teams make any changes to their lineup or stick with the same 11 players, or will injured players make a comeback to the final? Let’s take a look at the IPL 2021 final’s expected playing XI and prominent players to keep an eye on.
1. Chennai Super Kings predicted playing XL
Suresh Raina’s fitness status may no longer be crucial after Robin Uthappa’s impact in the first qualifier. After Faf du Plessis’ first-over exit, Uthappa delivered a brilliant half-century in the previous game on the team’s desire to blaze away in the PowerPlay, and he should keep his spot for the final.
Players: MS Dhoni (capt, wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood
2. Kolkata Knight Riders predicted playing XL
KKR’s biggest issue, like CSK’s, will be whether big man Andre Russell recovers in time for the final. Shakib Al Hasan will make way for Russell if he recovers. Andre Russell is said to have been practicing his bowling before the second qualifier on Wednesday, and he could be in contention for the final. Russell will undoubtedly be an asset on the pace-friendly Dubai pitch due to his bat-playing ability.
Players: Eoin Morgan (capt), Venkatesh Iyer, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shakib Al Hasan/Andre Russel, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy, Lockie Ferguson

Case 1: If Chennai Super Kings bat first, their first innings score is predicted to be 175-185. The match will be won by Chennai Super Kings by a margin of 5-15 runs.
Case 2: If Kolkata Knight Riders bat first, the first innings scoring estimate is 160-170 for Kolkata Knight Riders. The match will be won by Chennai Super Kings by 5 wickets.
CSK has played more games in Dubai than KKR, therefore expect them to win. Because the surface would likely be slower than the one that KKR thrived on in Sharjah, their spinners may not be as effective. As a result, the Men in Yellow may win from superior batting conditions.
