Match 38, CHE vs KOL: Preview, Match Details, Pitch & Weather Report, Probable XIs, Fantasy Picks



Chennai and Kolkata will lock horns in match number 38 of the Indian T20 League 2021. Kolkata led by Eoin have started the second phase on a deafening note. The two time champions defeated Bangalore and Mumbai in their opening two fixtures to enter the top four. Going into this game, the men in gold and purple can be encouraged by the fact that they defeated Chennai last time these two teams met at the same venue (2020). 

Chennai on the other hand would aim to continue the UAE gallop. They will be high on confidence after back to back wins against Bangalore and Mumbai. Another win will almost guarantee their place in the playoffs. In their previous meeting against Kolkata, Chennai secured a 18 run victory after posting a gigantic 220 on board.
