Take a look at 5 big players to watch out for in CSK vs DC:
The Delhi Capitals opening batsman is in phenomenal form off late. He was the leading run-scorer for Mumbai in the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy. He had slammed 827 runs in 8 matches at an average of 165+ that featured 4 centuries. He would like to continue his red-hot form in IPL 2021.
Delhi Capitals newly-appointed skipper Rishabh Pant needs to lead from the front in the batting department. He has scored over 500 runs in international matches, leading India to glory across formats since the inception of 2021. In absence of Shreyas Iyer, Pant needs to provide stability to the middle-order.
DC’s ace spinner R Ashwin was in prime form in the recently concluded India’s test series against England. He took 32 wickets in 4 Tests and emerged as the highest wicket-taker in the tournament.
MS Dhoni, who has doubled his preparation for the IPL 2021, will be in action against DC on Saturday. We have seen him plenty of sixes for CSK over last few weeks in practice. Now, get ready for some LIVE action. In this edition of IPL, MS Dhoni is likely to complete 5,000 runs (need 368 runs) in IPL. He would like to open CSK’s account in IPL 2021 with a victory.
Chinna Thala will be making his IPL comeback after a year. He had pulled out of the IPL last year. Despite missing the previous season, he still ranks second among most run-scorers in the IPL. He can turn the fortunes in favour of CSK in the middle-order- a key concern for their failure last season.
