Battle Of Top Two!
Delhi Capitals defeated Chennai Super Kings both times during the league stage round. Delhi made into the playoffs for the third time in a row that happened for the very first time in their IPL history. They finished third in 2019, second in 2020 and this year they will have an eye to go a step ahead and win the trophy for the very first time but they have MS Dhoni’s CSK in front of their final entry.
CSK who failed to make a top-two finish for the first time in 2020, made a strong comeback this year and playing the Qualifier 1. No doubt CSK are one of the most successful sides in the IPL and they will give a tough fight to DC.
