Today’s IPL 2021 fixture will be played between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings. This match will take place at the Dubai Internation Stadium at 7:30 p.m IST. Both the teams are currently competing for the top spot in the league table and a victory today for either team will solidify their chances of finishing first in the group stages.
Delhi Capitals have regained their form after defeating Mumbai Indians in a low scoring contest on Saturday. DC is likely to make changes in their lineup as they have already qualified for the playoffs of IPL 2021.
Chennai Super Kings
Csk are coming into this contest after suffering a harsh loss against Rajasthan Royals in their last match. As a result, they would like to get a win over Delhi who is placed second and confirm their spot in the top two of the table. It will be interesting to watch Chennai’s lineup today because they might tinker with their bowling lineup.
Prediction for the IPL 2021 Match between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals
Csk won’t be concerned with their defeat in the last game because they batted very well and lost to a better side. Therefore one can expect Chennai to get back to winning ways against a Delhi side that will miss the services of Stoinis. Because the all rounder’s presence in the lineup helps Delhi become flexible with their batting order.

Avesh Khan was excellent against Mumbai as he picked up three wickets. Hence he could deliver a similar performance against Chennai.
Ravichandran Ashwin 8.5 Cr
Despite going for runs in the last game, Ashwin managed to pick up a wicket. As a result, he could be effective against the left handers like Moeen and Raina today.

Moeen Ali has consistently contributed in Csk’s score ever since he was promoted to number three. The English all rounder is a valuable player who can give fantasy users points in both departments.
Ravindra Jadeja 9.5 Cr
Similar to Moeen, Jadeja has taken wickets and scored runs for Chennai in the last few games. So one could expect the all rounder to show his firepower against DC today.
Faf Du Plessis 10.5 Cr
