Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Qualifier 1: Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings

The Delhi Capitals will square off with the Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2021. The Capitals had a fantastic season in the IPL, finishing first with 20 points and qualifying for the third time in a row. They have match-winners in every game element, and even their bench is solid, making them one of the tournament favourites.

On the other side, Chennai Super Kings finished second in the standings with 18 points. They are now out of form, having lost three consecutive games and missing out on a chance to finish first in the table. They have a lot to be pleased about in this IPL, as they have unearthed one of the most brilliant openers in Ruturaj Gaikwad, who has had a great run with the bat. Whoever wins will advance directly to the finals, while the loser will have another chance in Qualifier 2.

 

Weather
We can expect clear skies and mild weather in Dubai, with an average temperature of around 34°C. Dew may form in the second innings, making batting easier.

 

Pitch
After starting as the finest batting pitch, the Dubai International Cricket Stadium has slowed down in recent games. Off the field, seamers should receive support, while cutters and slower deliveries tend to work better. We may have a 155-160 game that comes down to the wire.

This game is challenging to predict because both teams are aiming to rebound from losses in past meetings. CSK has struggled to adequately protect totals, which has previously been one of their strong suits. DC appears to be better than CSK, which could give them an advantage over MS Dhoni’s team.
