The Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Capitals will both kick off their 2021 IPL campaign against each other on April 10. So far in the IPL, the two teams have faced each other 23 times, with CSK winning 15 times.
However, looking at the results of the last edition where DC came out the winner every time, CSK will be keen to take the top this time around.
DC will be without its regular captain Shreyas Iyer throughout the tournament. Iyer was ruled out due to a shoulder injury he sustained during the first ODI against England last month.
Wicket batsman Rishabh Pant will captain the Delhi Capitals in Iyer’s absence.
