IPL 2021, DELHI CAPITALS VS CHENNAI SUPER KINGS, MATCHDAY 2 PREDICTIONS: Today at 7:30 pm IST, Three-time Ipl champions Chennai Super Kings will face last year’s Ipl finalists Delhi Capitals at the historic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In the absence of the young and prolific captain Shreyas Iyer for the whole season, due to a shoulder injury that he suffered in a match against England, Rishabh Pant will be leading Delhi Capitals today against his legendary master Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings. Both the teams would be looking to begin their IPL 2021 campaigns with a win. CSK will be hoping to change their form of last year where they finished the league at the 7th place, with some good performance this year.
I the head to head battle in the past Capitals have won 8 matches where Super kings have managed to win 15. The return of Suresh Raina is expected to strengthen Chennai’s middle order which looked very poor last year. Both the teams will be missing a few key players due to covid guidelines. CSK paceman Lungi Ngidi has recently arrived from South Africa and is undergoing quarantine, whereas Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje will also miss the match due to the same reason, and the duo’s absence could be a problem for DC.
Match Prediction : Even though Capitals are in a real good run of form since last year, the unfortunate absence of their key names including Shreyas, Rabada and Nortje might cost them the game.
