CSK VS KKR 1ST Match Prediction In IPL 2022

The CSK new captain Ravindra Jadeja will start his campaign against KKR Shreyas Iyer in the first match of the 2022 Indian Premier League season on Saturday 26th March 2022 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

CSK, who are the defending champions, have hit the headlines just two days before the start of the league by announcing that MS Dhoni would no longer be the captain. Fans received the news with mixed reactions since MS Dhoni had already created a good impression for himself in the team to the extent that his name has known the franchise. MS Dhoni handed over the captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja, who will be leading the team during the IPL 2022 season.

Under the new leadership, CSK will begin their campaign against KKR, which they defeated in the previous IPL season finals. Kolkata Knight Riders have also made some significant changes after a mega auction. After being separated from Delhi Capitals, Shreyas Iyer will be the captain. Currently, KKR boasts of some power-packed young men who would do their best to end their eight years trophy drought this season.

The biggest news from the CSK’s camp is the handing over of captaincy to Ravindra Jadeja by MS Dhoni. Deepak Chahar is not yet fit and has not joined the team despite being one of the players for whom the franchise spent vast amounts of money. Moen Ali is set to arrive today after resolving his visa issues. However, he will have to go on mandatory isolation and will not be taking part in the opening match.

The team will play without Pat Cummins as he is away on national duties in Pakistan. They will also miss the services of Alex Hales, who opted out of the tournament, a big blow for the team. However, they have a replacement for him, Aaron Finch, who would join them later in the season as he will be playing for Australia against Pakistan.

Ruturaj Gaikwad had an outstanding batting record for the 2021 IPL, and the franchise is hopeful that he will give a much better performance this season since they have lost the services of Faf du Plessis. The latter assisted Ruturaj very well last season. Shreyas Iyer has also improved his skills of late after giving an outstanding performance in the T20I, where he finished unbeaten and was named the Player of the Series. The franchise has high expectations of him.

For the first time. MS Dhoni will step onto the pitch as a player without the responsibilities of a captain, and everyone is watching him see what he could do with the newfound freedom. The first game will show the new role of the veteran.

Several players are superstars in being all-rounders, and the teams have high hopes to give outstanding performances. Sunil Narine, Ravindra Jadeja, Venkatesh Iyer, and Andre Russell are some of the best all-rounders and have had exemplary performances in the past.
