DC vs CSK- Prediction, Who Will Win The Match Between Delhi Capitals And Chennai Super Kings? IPL 2021 Match 50. The 50th match of IPL 2021 sees Delhi Capitals take on Chennai Super Kings at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday.

The last time when both these two teams met each other this season, Delhi Capitals chased down a 188-run target in 18.4 overs, courtesy of a match-winning 138-run opening partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw.

It was CSK’s first defeat in their very first game of the competition. MS Dhoni and Co., however, made a complete turnaround in their fortunes after that defeat and played like champions. Currently, they are sitting at the top of the table with 9 wins in 12 matches.

They have only lost three matches this season. They also suffered a defeat in their last game against Rajasthan Royals. Riding on Ruturaj Gaikwad’s century off just 60 balls, Chennai Super Kings notched a 189-run total against RR.

However, their bowled looked absolutely clueless in the second innings. All the bowlers went for more than 8 runs an over, barring Shardul Thakur. And, as a result of that, RR chased down the score in just 17.3 overs. Chennai Super Kings have two games remaining in the league stage of IPL 2021. They would be keen to win both the games and maintain the top spot on the table.

Having said that, it isn’t going to be easy for them as their opponent in the next game, Delhi Capitals, are in blistering form. Rishabh Pant and Co. are coming into the game after beating Mumbai Indians by 4 wickets on Saturday. Their bowling attack is one of the best in the competition.

Avesh Khan’s emergence has made it a team to beat. He, once again, starred for them in the last game, picking 3 for 15 in 4 overs. Axar Patel was also brilliant with his mix-ups as he also finished with three wickets for 21 runs in 4 overs. Thanks to those two performances, DC restricted MI to just 129 runs in the first innings.

In pursuit of the total, DC lost the top three wickets for just 30 runs in 4.1 overs. Rishabh Pant, however, counter-attacked to deny MI to take complete control of the game. He, unfortunately, got out after scoring 26 off 22 balls in a bid to hit one shot too many.

Shreyas Iyer, though, held firm and played right till the end of the innings. He shared crucial partnerships with Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin to help his side chased down the score in 19.1 overs. Iyer remained unbeaten 33 off 33 balls, while Ravichandran Ashwin also made a vital contribution of 20 runs off 21 balls. Delhi Capitals are currently at the second spot on the points table. They would be desperate for a win on Monday to take the numero-uno position.

Keeping in mind, Delhi’s top-notch bowling attack and their overall recent form, they will go into the contest as favourites.
