CSK will take on DC in Arun Jaitley Stadium and it is a must-win match for them to qualify for playoffs. If CSK is winning this match, they would have the chance to finish in the top two while if CSK is losing this game, RCB, LSG, and MI will get a chance to leave CSK out of the tournament.
DC is already out of the tournament and it is a casual match for them. They would like to finish their tournament with a win so that they can go with a fresh start next season.
CSK lost their last match against KKR and they need to win this match at any cost to make their place in the playoffs. We may see some changes in the team where Theekshana could be on the bench and Santner could take his place in playing eleven.
So, get ready for this match, and let’s expect something good for both teams.
