The 50th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2021 edition will see Delhi Capitals (DC) lock horns against table-toppers Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The match is scheduled to start at 7:30 pm IST at Dubai International Stadium with the toss slated to be held 30 minutes prior to that. Both CSK and DC have already qualified for the playoffs but tonight's game is important in the context that it will strengthen the position of the winning side and ensure a place for it in the top-two of the points table when the group stage ends. Both CSK and DC are on 18 points with 9 wins and 3 losses, however, the MS Dhoni-led side is on top of the points table because of its superior net run rate.
The last time when Delhi Capitals locked horns against Chennai Super Kings in the ongoing edition of the IPL, the Rishabh Pant-led side had emerged victorious, winning the game by 7 wickets.
