Delhi Capitals will be squaring up against Chennai Super Kings in qualifier 1 of IPL 2021 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. The match will commence on Sunday, October 10 at 07:30 PM IST. Here are our DC vs CSK Dream11 Predictions , preview, squad, and predicted XI.
DC vs CSK Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Delhi’s daredevilry in IPL:
Delhi Capitals are the table-toppers at the end of the league phase in IPL 2021. They became the only team in the history of the IPL to complete a double-over both Chennai and Mumbai in the league stage. DC though went on to lose a close game against RCB in their last league match. Their only possible weak link is their death overs batting. They are a gun side if the match is played around a score of 130-160. But their batting will surely be tested if the match ends up being a high-scoring one.
Delhi will be looking to attack their opponents early with their intimidating pacers. If they are able to set the early tempo with the ball then expect Delhi to book a place in the finals.
Are CSK battle ready?
CSK became the first team to qualify for the playoffs 11 times in 12 seasons. They staged a stunning recovery from last year when they finished 7th in the points table. CSK ended the league stage albeit losing their last 3 games on the bounce after winning 4 in a row after landing in the UAE. CSK’s middle order barring Ambati Rayudu have failed in the 2nd leg. If their openers don’t provide them with a great start then CSK end up with below-par scores. Their bowling too was taken to cleaners in 2 of their last 3 games. CSK will bank upon their big match experience when they take on an exuberant Delhi side in the first qualifier. If CSK’s big guns get going, a record 9th final is not away from them.
