IPL 2021: DC vs CSK Match: The second match of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League 2021 will be played today. Today’s match will be played between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings from 7:30 pm at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
The eyes of both the teams would like to make a great debut by winning the first match. Younger Rishabh Pant will be in front of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In such a situation, there can be a lot of competition between the two teams.
The performance of the Chennai Super Kings in the last season of IPL 2020 was very poor. Chennai team failed to reach the playoffs for the first time in the history of this league.
However, this time the Chennai team has made many new changes. In such a situation, it will not be easy for captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni to choose the playing XI. The same Delhi Capitals team will play without their previous captain Shreyas Iyer this season.
For this season, young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been made the captain of Delhi. In such a situation, Rishabh Pant may face a lot of challenges this season.
It will be very difficult for Rishabh Pant to choose the playing XI as well. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis may find the place as openers for the Chennai team.
While in the middle order, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, and Ravindra Jadeja can get a place in the playing XI. If we talk about bowlers, then Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur can be given a place in the team.
If we talk about Delhi Capitals, then the young Prithvi Shaw can start the innings with Shikhar Dhawan. While Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant, Sam Billings, and Marcus Stoinis can be included in the playing XI in the middle order.
If we talk about bowling, then Ravichandran Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, and Kagiso Rabada can be included in the team. Let’s know about the pitch report.
The international stadium at Wankhede is usually the home of batsmen. There have been many high-scoring matches on this ground in the history of IPL.
However, due to the corona epidemic, there has not been a long match played here, so the pitch has been increased for a long time. For this reason, the fast bowlers can get help in the early overs. However, given the impact of dew, the team that wins the toss may decide to bowl first.
Possible playing XI of Chennai Super Kings:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur.
Possible playing XI of Delhi Capitals:
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant, Sam Billings, Marcus Stoinis, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Ishant, Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Kagiso Rabada.
