DC vs CSK IPL Score: Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni will be aiming for top-two finish.© BCCI/IPL
Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper Rishabh Pant has won the toss and elected to bowl vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in match 50 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. All-rounder Ripal Patel is making his IPL debut for Delhi Capitals as there was no place for Steve Smith in the playing XI and that was the only change for them. Chennai Super Kings made three changes in their lineup as Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, and Robin Uthappa have made their way to the playing XI in place of Sam Curran, KM Asif, and Suresh Raina. Both teams are level on 18 points after 12 matches but CSK are leading the IPL 2021 points table thanks to their superior net run-rate. While the Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals are coming into this game with a win next to their name, MS Dhoni’s CSK were overwhelmed by Rajasthan Royals in a high scoring encounter in Abu Dhabi last week. Having already qualified for the playoffs, both teams are expected to make a few changes and test their bench strength ahead of the knockout stages of the tournament. (LIVE SCORECARD)
