DC v CSK: IPL Qualifier 1 Match Details

Date – Sunday, October 10, 2021
Time – 7:30 PM IST
Venue – Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai


DC v CSK: IPL Qualifier 1 Match Preview:

Delhi Capitals would be relieved with the form Prithvi Shaw has shown in their last league stage match against RCB. However, middle-order looks worrying at the moment, Pant hasn't shown the destructive batting that's expected of him yet. DC may look to bring in Sam Billings in place of Hetmeyer. 

Delhi's bowling is arguably the best in the 2nd leg of IPL 2021. The likes of Nortje, Rabada & Avesh Khan have constantly troubled the batters. Axar Patel & Ashwin are also capable of providing breakthroughs at important times for the Capitals. 

Chennai Super Kings in form opener Ruturaj Gaikwad was not able to perform in the last few matches, which eventually ended up in a defeat for CSK. CSK also has the same weak middle order problem as DC. Apart from Rayudu, none of the middle order batters have shown intent to score. However, Robin Uthappa, Ravindra Jadeja & Moeen Ali may come in handy in any situation.

Chennai pace attack leader Josh Hazlewood went for plenty in the last match, CSK may think about bringing in Lungi Ngidi in place of him. Shardul Thakur has consistently provided important wickets & Deepak Chahar is also capable of lethal bowling. 

DC v CSK: IPL Qualifier 1 Match Prediction:

It will be a closely fought match between the top teams. Both teams have faced defeats in their last match, however, CSK is on a roll and has lost 3 back to back matches going into the playoffs.

DC v CSK Head-to-Head:

  • Total – 25
  • Delhi Capitals – 10
  • Chennai Super Kings – 15
