Aakash Chopra says “The story might just end” in IPL 2021. Chopra has predicted a Chennai Super Kings win against the Kolkata Knight Riders in tonight’s IPL 2021 final. While Chennai is looking for their fourth IPL trophy. Kolkata will be hoping to join them. Also, the joint second-most successful team by winning their third title. The Kolkata-based franchise would want to maintain its 100 percent record in the IPL finals. They having won their two previous title deciders in 2012 and 2014. While making his predictions for the encounter in a video shared on his YouTube channel. Chopra believes KKR’s winning spree in the IPL finals is likely to end.
“I am going with Chennai. I think the Chennai Super Kings are going to win their fourth title and Kolkata might end up losing a final for the first time. The story might just end,” Aakash Chopra said.
The former India cricketer, Chopra feels that Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni will not make substantial contributions with the bat.
“Both keepers will together score less than 30 runs. Ya, Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni will both together score less than 30 runs,” Chopra said.
Also, both Dhoni and Karthik have had a rather indifferent run with the bat. Although the CSK captain played a match-winning cameo in the Qualifier 1 encounter. Against the Delhi Capitals, he has not been amongst the runs otherwise.
“The four openers – which means Faf, Ruturaj, Venkatesh Iyer, and Shubman Gill – will together score more runs than whoever comes at the No.3 and No.4 positions in the two sides. It is straightforward, actually, it should be like that,” Chopra said.

“Lastly, Hazlewood and Ferguson will concede less than 60 runs. That’s a tough one because dew also comes at times later and the Dubai pitch is favorable for batting. I am saying that they will concede less than 60 on a high-scoring ground. I have made it slightly difficult,” Aakash Chopra said.
