DC vs CSK: IPL 2021: Preview
Delhi Capitals come into this game after a close win against Mumbai Indians. Pant’s side has already made it to the next round after their 4-wicket win against the Mumbai Indians. It was a close game, but the team managed to hold on to its nerves while chasing the score to defeat the defending champions. They had won the earlier game of the season against Chennai and Pant would want his players to make it two in two this year.
Chennai Super Kings went down against the Rajasthan Royals in their last match, their first loss in UAE. The loss would have hurt Dhoni as his side failed to defend 189 runs on the board. It was a bit of complacency that cost them the game. They had lost against the Delhi Capitals earlier and Dhoni would like to even it out here.
