DC vs CSK: IPL 2021: Preview
The league games are done, and we are into the 1st Qualifier of the Indian Premier League 2021. Delhi Capitals lost their last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore on the last ball of the match. However, Captain Pant would be proud of the campaign he has led. The side has finished on the top of the points table for the first time and has produced great performances. Prithvi Shaw has gained form which is welcome news for the side and along with Shikhar Dhawan, he shall look to provide the side with a great start here with Dhawan already having made 500+ runs.
Chennai would be under pressure to perform after suffering three consecutive losses before this game. But the Super Kings are known to be tough fighters, and this would make this contest all the more interesting. MS Dhoni would be upset with the build-up to this game. The side comes here with three straight losses, and this is something the skipper would be worried about. They have batted poorly in the last two games and went down against the Punjab Kings by 6 wickets in their final league match.
