IPL 2021 was very complicated due to Covid-19 and the series had been postponed. But It was started and arrived at the end of the series, where after playing 14 matches by all IPL teams, DC, CSK, RCB, and KKR have been qualified for playoff. Today Match is the 1st Match of the playoff that will be played between DC and CSK. DC and CSK both are the top teams of the IPL but DC is landing on the Number 1 Position. So after this, the question is who is going to win today’s IPL Match. So we are here to let you know the detailed prediction so that you can understand the probability of Winning the Team.
IPL 2021: DC Vs CSK Match Prediction Who Will Win Today
Delhi Capital and Chennai Super Kings will play their playoff match in Dubai International Stadium at 7:30 PM as per Indian Time. If we look at the record Team DC is on top by winning maximum matches of the IPL 2021 and 2nd position is being held by CSK a former IPL Champion Team.
Delhi is no doubt gave a great performance and at the top in point table but MS Dhoni is an experienced captain and we can look at previous matches where he changed the game won a very low scoring match. So there is not only a fight of excellence of batting or bowling only but also there is need of a lot of intelligence like MS Dhoni.
Delhi Capital (DC) Reveiw
Rishabh Pant is the youngest Captain of the IPL and his performance as a captain is appreciatable. He also says that MS Dhoni is his role model and he follows him. If we take a look at the performance of Delhi their batting order is performing well, Sikhar Dhawan (544 runs), Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas (401 runs), and Rishabh Pant (362 runs) did well.
Delhi’s bowling squad is also enough to defeat any team, Avesh Khan (22 wickets), Axar Patel (15 wickets), Kagiso Rabada (13 wickets), and Anrich Nortje, who has taken nine wickets but an economy rate of 5.59 over six games.
DC’s bowling attack has been right on the money without being taken to cleaners but Pant would hope that the law of averages doesn’t catch up with them and Nortje and Rabada both are able to unsettle Gaikwad with short balls, which has been Maharashtra batter’s weak point.
So overall the team Delhi is in a strong situation with great players. Although the team lost their match will get another chance to defend against 2nd playoff qualifier team.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Reveiw
Chennai Super Kings is not as strong as Delhi in the head-to-head comparison. If we compare CSK with DC then DC defeated CSK to lead and at number 1 in Point Table.
But CSK, over the years, has been in the final eight times and won three times which speak volumes of the team’s ability to lift their game just when it’s required most. That’s the reason why CSK is not one of those franchises which unleash new talent by dozens like other franchises. Ruturaj Gaikwad is an exception as he could be called a pure CSK product after more than a decade.
Dhoni has a simple cricketing philosophy — rely on tried and tested individuals who are battle-hardened and thus he has always punted on the likes of Ravindra Jadeja, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, and Faf du Plessis.
As much as one speaks about team effort, no one knows more than Dhoni that T20 is perhaps one form of cricket, where individuals win matches. He knows that even though his batting form (96 runs in 14 games) has deserted him years back (since 2015-16) and an IPL legend like Raina (160 in 12 games) is a pale shadow of his once destructive self, he still has Gaikwad (533 runs) and Du Plessis (546), who have more often than not provided solid starts and the menacing Jadeja (227 runs) providing final flourish.
Similarly, Shardul Thakur (18 wickets in 14 games) has given runs at an expensive economy rate of 8.57 but still the breakthroughs have been important. No one knows more than Dwayne Bravo (12 wickets) as to how one can fool the batters by changing the pace of his deliveries at the death.
Hazlewood hasn’t found form but Dhoni has enormous patience in players he believes in and he is banking on that devastating first spell from the Aussie that can wreak havoc. It could happen against Delhi Capitals, as their batting despite 10 wins, hasn’t exactly inspired the confidence of the highest level.
