Chennai Super Kings this season has been a team to beat as all their players are in the red hot form and are leaving no stone unturned while on the other hand the Eoin Morgan-led side has applied a different approach in the second leg after having a below-par performance in the first phase of the tournament and they are looking to hit every ball out of the ground which has made them a tough team to play against but when it comes to the head to head record against the MS Dhoni-led side they have managed only 8 victories against them in 23 encounters. The two sides will clash with each other for the second time in the IPL 2021 and the match between them will be telecasted on Star Sports channels – Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 3 and Star Sports 3 HD.
