Preview: After an exciting league phase of 2021 edition of Indian T20 League which took around six months to complete, it’s finally time for the top two teams – Delhi and Chennai – to lock horns with each other in order to book their place in the grand finale. Although the losing side will get another chance to go ahead, both teams will be raring to give their all in this contest itself to get the job done. With so much at stake, we are in for a high-voltage contest between two quality sides in Dubai on Super Sunday.
Analysis: Among the wicketkeepers, Rishabh Pant should be part of your side as the Delhi captain is a certain game-changer on his day. All the four openers who will be on display – Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw – have been doing the bulk of scoring for their respective sides and should be included in one’s fantasy team without any doubt.
The trio of Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo and Axar Patel could get some vital points with both bat and ball on a tricky Dubai wicket. Talking about the bowlers, Shardul Thakur and Avesh Khan will bowl in death and will have a chance to continue adding to their impressive wicket tally for the season. Meanwhile, Anrich Nortje and Deepak Chahar could prove to be the X-Factors with the new ball.
Probable Playing XI
Delhi: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (c/wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Anrich Nortje
Chennai: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina/Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c/wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood
Dafa Bet Prediction of the Game:
Head to Head: In the 25 meetings between the two sides, Chennai have the better record with 15 wins to their name. However, it’s Delhi who have dominated the fixture this season having won both the matches in league stages.
Recent Performance: Chennai seemed to have lost their way in the final stages of league phase as they come to this contest on the back of hattrick of losses. Although Delhi might have lost their last match against Bangalore, they have been overall quite impressive in the tournament so far.
Considering the above mentioned factors, Delhi seem to be having an edge for this playoff match.
