Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will lock horns against last-time runners-up Delhi Capitals (DC) in match 50 of IPL 2021 on Monday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. Both teams have already qualified for the playoffs; however, will be keen to continue the winning momentum leading to the playoffs.
DC will be desperate to keep up the momentum going into the playoffs as they chase their maiden IPL trophy. Their most recent victory was their second – a big confidence boost after 5 straight losses – against Mumbai Indians this season.
The f̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ flight for the
spot could take an interesting turn tonight

They might not have rejigged strategies like CSK, but have found a consistent set of performers for all kinds of pitches and conditions, even after being hit by injuries.
On the other hand, CSK will rely heavily on Ruturaj Gaikwad, who is fresh from an IPL century. CSK, like a couple of other teams in the IPL, bank heavily on having a left-right middle-order combination right through if possible, and the depth in batting talent has allowed for an aggressive approach at all times.
