After a nail-biting tournament opener, the stage is set for the youngest versus the most experienced captain in the Vivo IPL 2021. Chennai Super Kings led by 'Thala' Dhoni will take on Rishabh Pant's Delhi Capitals on Saturday.
Delhi Capitals had a dream run last season. Iyer's men emerged as the runner-up in IPL 2020. The team has maintained the similar core of players who guided the franchise to its first ever tournament finals. However, Shreyas Iyer will miss the entire 2020 season owing to a shoulder injury and in his absence, the flamboyant Rishabh Pant has been named the skipper of the side.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men had a disastrous 2020 season. They finished seventh on the points table. However, with Suresh Raina back in the side, Dwayne Bravo fit and ready to go and new recruits like Moeen Ali and K. Gowtham, CSK would be a tough team to go past this time.
