Delhi Capitals (DC) are all set to face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in a blockbuster Qualifier 1 clash in the Indian Premier League on Sunday, October 10. The match would be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and would begin from 7:30 pm IST (Indian Standard Time). Delhi Capitals have had the upper hand over Chennai Super Kings all season as they beat the three-time champions once in each leg of the competition and are now eyeing a third win over MS Dhoni's side. Chennai have had poor performances to show for themselves in the last few matches of the league stage. Their rut started against Rajasthan Royals and while many thought it would be a one-off loss, it wasn't. Delhi beat them for the second time this season in their next game and finally, they were merely turned into spectators as KL Rahul took them apart in their last group stage fixture. One of the main reasons for their failure has been the early dismissal of Ruturaj Gaikwad, who failed to perform in CSK's last two matches. Now, they head into the playoffs with a losing streak to snap and a point to prove. IPL 2021 Points Table Updated: DC, CSK, RCB and KKR Qualify for Playoffs
