CSK Playing 11: The Chennai Super Kings will meet in the Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2021 against Delhi Capitals. They are coming into this game after losing their last 3 league matches of the tournament.
The Chennai Super Kings team booked 3rd straight loss in the tournament to Punjab Kings in their last fixture, and will not be happy about their efforts. The team has lacked fire power in the middle order, and that’s what happened in the last league match. The team could post only 134 runs on the board, with the key contributor being Faf Du Plessis. While, the bowlers were average and the opposition chased down the score in 13 overs. The performance of Shardul Thakur has been consistent with the ball.
Chennai Super Kings will look to comeback to winning ways and not go into another Qualifier round to feature in the finals of the tournament. They have been put under pressure by the opposition batters, after the bowlers have been ineffective in the last few league matches. The team is expected to bowl first, if they win the toss and score runs on their merit and win the match.

1. Ruturaj Gaikad
The opener of the Chennai Super Kings team has been terrific in the tournament, and won few of the matches single handedly. But he has performed well enough in the last 2 matches, and would look to get back the confidence and give a good start to the team and flourish well later.
2. Faf Du Plessis
An experienced campaigner scored 76 off 55 balls in tricky surface against Punjab Kings. He displayed fine composure to stay at the crease and accelerated at the right point of time. In 14 matches, Faf has accumulated 546 runs, and is the leading run scorer for the CSK team.
