In the 13th season of IPL, CSK couldn’t make it to the playoffs for the first time; while on the other hand, DC had made it to the finals but faced defeat. However, this year both the teams are eyeing the trophy and look strong favorites among the other teams. This makes this match an even thrilling one. The game will be held on 10th October 2021 and will be the 50th match of this season. Who has the edge over the other? Which players might be in the squad? What role has the pitch to play in the super-intense game? Let’s find out!
Looking at the present squad, here are the lists of players who might join in to play for their respective teams and lead them to victory.
Chennai Super Kings:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Josh Hazlewood, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar.
Till now, CSK has lost two games against Delhi Capitals. But in cricket, history doesn’t always repeat itself. Both the teams have great players in great forms, which is pretty apparent given that these two are leading the pack in the IPL 2021 season.
The match between CSK vs. DC will be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in their 50th match on 10th October 2021. The pitch has been quite helpful to the bowlers so far. However, the same cannot be said about the batsmen, as they have been finding it tricky to score runs freely. However, as the size of the field is relatively small, the batsmen will find it easy to achieve the fours and sixes once they navigate the process. Therefore, the advantage goes more to the spinners, as they will play a significant role in this match. As per the weather report, the maximum temperature would be anywhere between 24 to 32 degrees Celsius in the region, and the humidity at 32 degrees Celsius.
CSK and DC are both dynamic and at their best in this IPL season. Winning or losing can be a matter of a straightforward step as to whoever plays better on the day. Both teams are desperate to win this battle in their quest to top the table, and eventually lift the trophy.
