Chennai Super Kings are set to lock horns with Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1 of the 2021 Indian Premier League at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday, October 10. The Super Kings finished in the top two, but after losing three games in a row, their confidence couldn't be higher.
Rishabh Pant's men will go into the game after losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last game of the league stage. RCB needed five runs and KS Bharat hit Avesh for a six to end the game. The Capitals will now be looking to keep the loss aside and take the field with a new zeal.

The pitch in Dubai has been quite sporting. The batsmen have been successful in playing their top shots. But the track has helped the spinners to some extent as well. The pitch also favors the chasing teams and hence, batting second should be the way forward.

The Probable best batsman of the match
Ruturaj Gaikwad - Chennai Super Kings
Ruturaj Gaikwad is making a revelation for the Super Kings in the current edition of the IPL. After failing in the first three games, the youngster has come into his own and has scored runs for fun. In 14 matches, the right-handed batsman has scored 533 runs at an average of 44.41 and a strike rate of 137.01. If he goes, the Capitals can chase the leather.
Probable best bowler of the match
Avesh Khan - Delhi Capitals
Avesh Khan has been exceptional for the Capitals in the current edition of the IPL. He is currently the leading wicket-taker for his team, taking 22 wickets at an economy rate of 7.18. But he will be a bit disappointed after not being able to defend 15 runs against the Challengers. Nevertheless, Khan remains a major force for DC in the tournament.
Today’s match prediction: Chennai Super Kings to win the match.
