Both CSK and DC have registered 9 wins from 12 matches with 18 points so far this season. The two teams, who had suffered defeats twice before the IPL 2021 was suspended in May, have lost only once in the second phase in UAE.
While DC-led by Rishabh Pant head into the contest on the back of a victory over reigning champions Mumbai Indians, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s CSK will look to bounce back from a defeat against Rajasthan Royals.
In the reverse fixture, DC defeated CSK earlier this year in April by 7 wickets after brilliant opening partnership between Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan. DC have also beaten CSK in the last 5 meeting between the two franchises in IPL.
However, CSK hold the edge in the head-to-head battle as Dhoni’s side have registered 15 wins in the 24 meetings against the Delhi-based franchise in IPL.
A victory in Monday’s match, will put either CSK or DC, who currently occupy the first and second places respectively in the IPL points table, a chance to finish in the top two which allows a direct route to the final or a second chance to reach the summit clash via a qualifier 2.
