CSK had a below par IPL season in 2020 and their many fans were disappointed with the result of that season, However in this season CSK fans will have a huge expectation from the MS Dhoni-led side to make a great comeback as the franchise is known for making comebacks like these over the years.
DC on the other hand, have been consistent in last two IPLs where they reached playoffs and finals in IPL 2019 & 2020 respectively. This year they will be playing without their main man Shreyas Iyer and with a young captain like Rishabh Pant it will be exciting to see how he leads this side in the most crunch.
