IPL 2021 Live Score, DC vs CSK Live Cricket Score: Top-of-table clash

IPL 2021 Live Score, DC vs CSK Live Cricket Match Score Streaming Online Updates: With two league matches left, a defeat will not hurt either team much, though if the losing team loses their last league match too, there is a chance that they will drop out of the Qualifier 1.

IPL 2021, DC vs CSK Live Cricket Score Online Updates: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Delhi Capitals (DC), two teams who have sealed their spots in the knockout rounds, will take on each other in this top-of-the-table clash on Monday. With two league matches left, a defeat will not hurt either team much, though if the losing team loses their last league match, there is a chance that they will drop out of the Qualifier 1.

With Delhi Capitals happily placed to play in the play-offs, they can try out Ajinkya Rahane and Sam Billings at the top. Rahane hasn’t played a single game in this season of IPL and the team might try to back their most experienced batsman to get some runs behind his back. Chennai might see Dwayne Bravo coming back for CSK’s penultimate game and Lungi Ngidi might get a game.

DC vs CSK Live Updates:

Anrich Nortje bowls the first over of the day. Gaikwad and Du Plessis open the CSK innings. Gaikwad is given out LBW but he Reviews to overturn the decision. 5 wides and a couple of boundaries in the first over. 

CSK 16/0 after 1

Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Ripal Patel, Axar Patel, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje

Chennai Super Kings (Playing XI): Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood

Delhi Capitals win the toss and elect to field. CSK to bat first.

Hard-hitting all-rounder from Gujarat Ripal Patel will play for DC today.

We are using the same surface that the Sunrisers and the Knight Riders played yesterday. There is nothing wrong with the wicket – there is no great deal of spin available, the bounce and carry is consistent and the ball is coming on nicely. It’s a pitch of two halves, in the first 10 overs, it’s nice to bat on but then it might slow down, thereby challenging the batters. Make the most of the batting powerplay, say Simon Doull and Matthew Hayden, in their pitch report.

With Delhi Capitals happily placed to play in the play-offs, they can try out Ajinkya Rahane and Sam Billings at the top. Rahane hasn’t played a single game in this season of IPL and the team might try to back their most experienced batsman to get some runs behind his back.

While Chennai might see Dwayne Bravo coming back for CSK’s penultimate game and Lungi Ngidi might get a game.

Chennai Super Kings
Matches played – 12, Points – 18, NRR – +0.82

Top of the table with the best net run-rate, CSK have to win one of their next two matches to secure a top two finish and get a second bite at the cherry in the Playoffs. The losers of the Qualifier 1 will get another chance to reach the final, having a second game against the winners of the Eliminator. Their next two group games are against Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings and even if they lose both, they could still be in the top two, thanks to their run-rate.

Delhi Capitals

DC have also qualified and are on the cusp of securing a top two finish. Their next two matches are against CSK and Royal Challengers Bangalore and two more points will all but secured a top two finish for them.
