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.
