Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings IPL T20 Qualifier Match Prediction

The play off stage of the 2021 Indian Premier League begins on Sunday evening in Dubai with the top two sides from the group stage coming face to face in the Qualifier 1. Delhi Capitals topped the group with ten wins from fourteen games. CSK finished in 2nd ahead of Royal Challengers Bangalore by virtue of net-run-rate. Read on as we preview this game. The play-off begins at 19:30 at the Dubai Cricket Stadium.

Although they lost on Friday, Delhi Capitals will come into this game full of confidence. They beat CSK by 3 wickets on October 4th.

Chennai Super Kings have arrived in the play-offs on the back of three straight defeats. Far from ideal preparation but if they can refocus then they can beat any side in the tournament.

Date – 10 Oct 2021

Time -19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue -Dubai Cricket Stadium – Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Winner –  Delhi Capitals

DC vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

We predict that both captains will choose to bat second should they win the toss. Chasing a total has been the preferred method of success in this year’s competition.

DC vs CSK Match Pitch Report

Delhi Capitals and RCB both posted scores in the 160s on Friday but up until that game, most teams had struggled to post above 135 in Dubai. It is a tacky pitch with some assistance for the pace bowlers.

Weather Report

Clear skies with the temperature remaining above 30 degrees for the duration of the game.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Ripal Patel , Shimron Hetmyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje

Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings IPL T20 Match Prediction

Top of the table Chennai Super Kings take on Rajasthan Royals in Match 47 of the 2021 Indian Premier League. Rajasthan Royals are in 7th with eight points but are only two points from 4th placed KKR. CSK have a two point lead at the summit of the group. Read on as we preview this match. This game takes place at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi and begins at 19:30 local time.

Rajasthan Royals are in the last chance saloon and must win this game to keep their hopes alive. They have a very powerful batting line up which can challenge any side on their day.

CSK have set the pace throughout this year’s IPL. They have a squad full of match winners and each one of them has stepped up and put in big performances when required.

Date -Oct 02, 2021

Time -19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates 

Winner-Chennai Super Kings

RR vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

Rajasthan Royals chose to field first after winning the toss in their last match in Abu Dhabi. With CSK electing to insert the opposition in their last match as well, it is pretty clear what the captains will do in this match.

RR vs CSK Match Pitch Report

The pace off bowlers have had the most success at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium so far in the tournament. With the ball not coming onto the bat, it makes big scores a tough ask for the batters.

Weather Report

High of 33 degrees with minimal cloud cover for this evening fixture.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Liam Livingstone, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Kartik Tyagi, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c) (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Josh Hazlewood, Deepak Chahar

Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals IPL T20 Match Prediction

Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals meet in the 36th Match of the 2021 Indian Premier League on Saturday afternoon at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets on Wednesday to go top of the table. Rajasthan Royals are currently in 5th with eight points from eight games. This game begins at 14:00 local time.

Delhi Capitals are in fine form and top the IPL. They were ruthless against Sunrisers Hyderabad and completed the win with 8 wickets and 13 balls remaining.

Rajasthan Royals had a very tough time earlier in the year but the narrow win over Punjab Kings has left them very much in the mix in the tournament. The self-belief in the side is returning.

Date – 25 Sep 2021

Time -15:30 IST / 14:00 GMT

Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates 

Winner-Rajasthan Royals

DC vs RR Match Toss Prediction

Neither captain won the toss in their first games in the UAE. We expect both teams to choose to field first in this clash.

DC vs RR Match Pitch Report

There will be something for all types of players in the pitch in Abu Dhabi. However, it is an afternoon game so the ball may swing less than under the floodlights.

Weather Report

A high of 36 degrees with sunny conditions throughout.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (c) (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Evin Lewis, Liam Livingstone, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Kartik Tyagi, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

Pakistan vs New Zealand 1st ODI Match Prediction

Pakistan and New Zealand meet in the opening ODI on Friday afternoon local time at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi. Pakistan’s last cricket match in this format came against England in early July when they lost 3-0. New Zealand have not played ODI cricket since March. Read on as we preview this day-night ODI. The game begins at 14:30 local time.

Pakistan were well beaten by England’s back-up ODI side in England back in July but will rightly fancy their chances against this New Zealand team in Pakistan.

Apart from Ben Sears, who is only available for the IT20s, New Zealand have the same squad from their 3-2 IT20 defeat in Bangladesh. They were hard to beat and will be competitive in this match also.

Date – Sep 17, 2021

Time -14:30 IST / 9:00 GMT

Venue –   Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium – Rawalpindi, Pakistan

Winner- Pakistan

PAK vs NZ Match Toss Prediction

With an inexperienced bowling line-up, we expect Tom Latham to choose to bat first in this match. Our expectation is that Babar Azam would choose to field first in Rawalpindi.

PAK vs NZ Pitch Report

The last game in Rawalpindi ended in a tie with both Pakistan and Zimbabwe hitting 278. Any score above 300 should be a very competitive total to defend.

Weather Report

Sunny with a high of 34 degrees at the start of this day-night ODI.

Pakistan Predicted Playing 11

Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Hasan Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Saud Shakeel, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

Finn Allen, Rachin Ravindra, Will Young, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Latham (c) (wk), Henry Nicholls, Cole McConchie, Scott Kuggeleijn, Ajaz Patel, Jacob Duffy, Blair Tickner

PAK vs NZ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Babar Azam (c), Imam ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Will Young
  • All Rounder:Shadab Khan, Rachin Ravindra
  • Wicket Keeper:Tom Latham, Mohammad Rizwan (vc)
  • Bowler:Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Ajaz Patel

Ireland vs South Africa 1st T20 Match Prediction

  • Quinton De Kock is in red hot form of late and scored a hundred in the last match. Back him to be South Africa’s top scorer.
  • Andrew Balbirnie was in brilliant form in the ODIs. He will look to carry on his form in the T20Is. We think he has a good chance of top-scoring for Ireland in the 1st T20I.
  • Tabraiz Shamsi was very hard to score off in the ODIs. The pressure of not being able to score may fetch him a lot of wickets. Shamsi is likely to be the top wicket-taker for South Africa. 

Date -19 jUly 2021

Time –20:30 IST / 15:00 GMT

Venue –The Village – Dublin, Ireland 

Winner –South Africa

IRE vs SA Match Toss Prediction

The wicket is brilliant for batting. However, most teams prefer chasing in T20Is thus team that wins the toss should field.

IRE vs SA Pitch Report

The surface is pretty flat and we are expecting a lot of runs to be scored on this wicket.

Weather Report

The weather will be cloudy but there is no threat of rain.

Ireland Predicted Playing 11

Andrew Balbirnie (c), Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Harry Tector, Shane Getkate, George Dockrell, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Simi Singh, Mark Adair, Craig Young, Joshua Little

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), Janneman Malan, Temba Bavuma (c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorious, George Linde, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Bjorn Fortuin, Lungi Ngidi

IRE vs SA Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Paul Stirling, Rassie van der Dussen (VC), Andrew Balbirnie, Janneman Malan
  • All Rounder:Dwaine Pretorius, George Dockrell
  • Wicket Keeper:Quinton de Kock (C)

New Zealand vs Bangladesh 2nd ODI Match Prediction

  • Trent Boult lived up to his billing as the ICC ODI number one ranked bowler in the first ODI on Saturday, finishing with figures of 4-27. But in a typical New Zealand performance, nearly all the bowlers chipped in, only Kyle Jamieson unable to pick up any wickets but he still kept his economy at a reasonable rate beneath 3.5 an over.
  • With the bat, New Zealand’s top order knew there was no rush to reach their target, but that didn’t stop Martin Guptill coming out of the traps in a hurry and smashing four sixes in his 19-ball 38. Henry Nicholls top scored with an unbeaten 49 and ODI debutant Devon Conway was able to bat at Test pace to make 27 with a strike rate of 51.92.
  • For Bangladesh, the only player to come out of the game with any credit was debutant Mahedi Hasan who had the most impressive economy rate of the bowlers from both sides. He sent down six overs of his off-spin and only went for seventeen runs. The Tigers will need their more experienced players to show up in this game if they are to threaten the Black Caps at all.

Date -22 March 2021

Time –  06:30, GMT +5:30

Venue – Hagley Oval – Christchurch, New Zealand 

Winner – New Zealand

NZ vs BAN Toss Prediction

Tom Latham won the toss in Saturday’s game and asked Bangladesh to bat first. We expect whichever captain who wins the toss to elect to field.

Pitch Report

We expect to see a surface where batting isn’t easy for the majority of players but don’t expect Martin Guptill to alter his style of play.

Weather Report

Cloudy and dry but not particularly warm on the south island. High of 11 degrees during the game.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tamim Iqbal (c) , Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mehedi Hasan, Mahedi Hasan, Taksin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman

New Zealand Predicted Playing 11

Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Ross Taylor, Will Young, Tom Latham (c) (wk) , Jimmy Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Jamieson, Matt Henry, Trent Boult

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tamim Iqbal (c) , Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mehedi Hasan, Mahedi Hasan, Taksin Ahmed, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman

India vs England 5th T20 Match Prediction

  • Suryakumar Yadav impressed in his first opportunity to show what he was capable of on the international stage. After making his debut in Sunday’s India victory but not getting to bat, Yadav hit his first ball in international cricket for six as well as two other maximums in his 31 ball 57. Shreyas Iyer impressed again, as did the reliable Rishabh Pant, in Thursday’s win for India.
  • Hardik Pandya starred with the ball for India in the series levelling fixture. He not only took the wickets of Jason Roy and Sam Curran but returned figures of 2-16 from his 4 overs.
  • For England, Jofra Archer continued his impressive series by recording format best figures of 4-33, Jason Roy made his third 40 something of the series and Ben Stokes top scored with a 23 ball 46. However, all three will need to step up their performances again if England are to stop India.

Date-20 March 2020

Time – 19:00, GMT +5:30

Venue – Narendra Modi Stadium – Ahmedabad, India 

Winner -India

IND vs ENG Toss Prediction

With the series on the line, whichever captain who wins the toss will field first. Eoin Morgan has won three of the four tosses so far.

Pitch Report

The pitch in the fourth T20i offered more for the pace bowlers, we expect the final game to offer something for all..

Weather Report

The weather has been consistent throughout this series in Ahmedabad. Hot again, temperature around 33 degrees when the game begins.

India Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli (c) , Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal

Afghanistan vs Zimbabwe 3rd T20 Match Prediction

  • Zimbabwe have chased unsuccessfully in the first and second T20Is, resulting in defeats of a similar margin. If Afghanistan bat after Zimbabwe, we could well see an early finish to the game.
  • Mohammad Nabi was awarded the player of the match award on Friday, another player who tops his discipline in the ICC T20I world rankings. He smashed 40 from 15 balls at the end of the Afghanistan innings as well as taking 2-20, showing off his all-round ability. Ultimately, Zimbabwe haven’t had an answer with either the bat or ball to the Afghanistan juggernaut.
  • The tour of Abu Dhabi has seen a real switch in results and momentum. Zimbabwe won the first Test by 10 wickets inside two days before losing the subsequent three games.

 

Date – Mar 20, 2021

Time – 15:30, GMT +5:30

Venue – Sheikh Zayed Stadium – Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

 

Winner -Afghanistan

AFG vs ZIM Toss Prediction

After losing both games when batting second, perhaps Zimbabwe will want to bat first and see how they fare. Afghanistan will be happy to bat first again.

Pitch Report

The pitch hasn’t been a big factor in either of the games in the series so far, we expect the same in the finale.

Weather Report

Saturday’s weather will be hot and sunny in Abu Dhabi. Expect temperatures of 27 throughout the game.

 

Afghanistan Predicted Playing 11

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Karim Janat, Usman Ghani, Hashmatullah Shahidid, Asghar Afghan (c) , Najibullah Zadran, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Hamza Hotak, Naveen-ul-Haq, Fareed Ahmad

 

Zimbabwe Predicted Playing 11

Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Tarisai Musakanda, Sean Williams (c) , Sikandar Raza, Ryan Burl, Richmond Mutumbami (wk), Wesley Madhevere, Donald Tiripano, Brandon Mavuta, Blessing Muzarabani, Richard Ngarva

WEST INDIES VS SRI LANKA 3RD ODI MATCH PREDICTION

Apart from one win in the T20Is, Sri Lanka’s recent run is definitely not worth remembering. They have struggled, to say the least, in all of the away matches they have played of late and a few of the reasons for that have been pretty unfortunate. Putting those factors behind, Sri Lanka have managed to show glimpses of brilliance, but those glimpses have unluckily not been enough for them.

In a bid to get one consolation win over West Indies in this ongoing series, Sri Lanka will take the field for the one final time on this tour. West Indies, on the other hand, have already won the series and might experiment a bit as far as their team combination is concerned. We expect this match to be a lot closer than the other two have been. The match is to be played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua, on 14th March 2021.

Date -14 March 2021

Time – 19:00:00, GMT +5:30

Venue – Sir Vivian Richards Stadium – Antigua, Antigua And Barbuda 

Winner – West Indies

WI vs SL Toss Prediction

If West Indies win the toss we expect them to chase for the third successive game, Sri Lanka on the other hand will be keen to mix it up and see if their luck changes!

Pitch Report

The pitch will certainly be similar to the last match, expect a slow turner often seen in Sri Lanka’s backyard!

Weather Report

It will be partly cloudy but temperatures up in the mid to high twenties in Antigua.

WI vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Karunaratne, Gunathilaka, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed
  • All Rounder:Hasaranga, Jason Holder
  • Wicket Keeper:Shai Hope (c) , Nicholas Pooran
  • Bowler:Alzarri Joseph, Romario Shepherd, Pradeep

India vs England 2nd T20 Match Prediction

ndia was given a very rude shock by England as it realized that it has a lot of work left to do before the T20 World Cup in October. The difference in the preparation of the two teams was stark as England came out with its strongest team with an intent to make a statement.

India on the other hand decided to rest its best batsman of the format and has not picked it’s two best fast bowlers at all.

A lot of changes will be needed ahead of the second match although the primary thing is going to be getting clarity in plans for India. England, on the other hand, will not want to change anything much and stick to the same plans.

India vs England 2nd T20 2021 is going to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on the 14th of March 2021.

Date -14 March 2021

Time –  19:00:00, GMT +5:30

venue- Narendra Modi Stadium – Ahmedabad, India 

Winner – India

IND vs ENG Toss Prediction

Eoin Morgan likes his teams to experience different situations but expect whoever wins the toss to choose to field.

Pitch Report

Expect a similar surface to the last game. Not a road to bat on but no major gremlins in the surface either.

Weather Report

It will be hot and sunny in Ahmedabad with temperatures around 34 when the game starts.

India Predicted Playing 11

KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c) , Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal
