All set to begin at Abu Dhabi then!  The umpires make their way out to the middle. The Men in Yellow are in a huddle near the ropes. Some words of wisdom from MS Dhoni and they are off to take their respective positions on the field. Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi are the openers for Kolkata. Change in the batting order for them. They needed more from Narine at the top and he has not delivered, so the change. Deepak Chahar with the ball for Chennai. Here we go…

Shubman Gill is up for a quick chat. He says that the team is having a great experience. Wants to inspire his fellow countrymen. He states that in this pandemic situation, it is difficult to go to the ground from the rooms but once one gets a hang of it, the same becomes easy. Shubman wants to continue playing well and scoring more runs.

Chennai (Playing XI) – Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (WK/C), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur, Karn Sharma (IN PLACE OF PIYUSH CHAWLA), Deepak Chahar.

Kolkata (Unchanged Playing XI) – Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (WK/C), Eoin Morgan, Rahul Tripathi, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.

Chennai skipper, MS Dhoni, says that it is not bad bowling first as that is what they have done so far. Dhoni says that in a tournament like this you keep getting new questions and need to answer and adapt. Tells the openers played well in the last game and hopes that they can continue giving them such starts. But is aware that it might not happen again. Informs there is one change as Karn Sharma comes in for Piyush Chawla.

Dinesh Karthik, Kolkata’s captain, says that he wants to bat first because he feels in the last couple of games that they batted first, the team did well. Informs that there are no changes.

TOSS – Up goes the coin and it lands in Kolkata’s favour. THEY WILL BAT!

Pitch Report – Deep Dasgupta is out in the middle. Back-to-back games in Abu Dhabi and hence the pitch remains the same, he says. He further states that the lengths as a batsman and a bowler that one wants to go after are different. Ajit Agarkar feels that anything in the good length or a bit shorter is good to be in, for a bowler. Agarkar feels that there is decent carry on this pitch. There are a little bit of cracks. Dasgupta feels that the pitch has something for both the batsmen and the bowlers – good pace and carry for bowlers and that batsmen will love the pace on offer.

Hello and welcome to our coverage of Match 21 between Chennai and Kolkata. A rivalry as close to the heated one as is in Mumbai-Chennai duels. Needless to add that the 2012 League final is the first thing that comes to our mind. Yes, it goes that long and since then there have been countless memories all along the way. What’s in store this time around? How will Dhoni combat against the likes of Narine and Russell with the ball, against whom he has found the going tough. Can Karthik find his mojo with the bat back? All these and more will be answered shortly…
