Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals

Preview for CSK vs DC GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
In the second match of IPL 2021, three-time winners Chennai Super Kings will be up against last season’s finalists Delhi Capitals.
Chennai Super Kings endured a torrid time in UAE last season. They are among the most consistent sides in IPL history, if not the most given the fact that they had qualified for the IPL playoffs every season. Last season was an exception and CSK’s performances throughout the competition were erratic. The ageing core of the squad also made matters worse and it’s an issue that they failed to promptly address in the IPL 2021 Auction. New recruit Moeen Ali might prove to be a valuable player for CSK this season as Dhoni’s men will try to get back to normalcy.
Delhi Capitals made their maiden IPL final appearance in 2020 and their performance graph has only risen upwards since Ricky Ponting took charge of the side as coach. The swashbuckling Rishabh Pant will lead the franchise this season in the absence of regular skipper Shreyas Iyer who’s out injured. DC have made some smart purchases in Steve Smith and Sam Billings and will be aiming to go all the way.
Injuries and unavailability:
Chennai Super Kings will miss fast bowler Lungi Ngidi in the first game.
Delhi Capitals will miss the services of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada, who along with Ngidi, took part in the series against Pakistan and arrived late. They will have to serve their mandatory seven-day quarantine period. Delhi might also have to play without Axar Patel who had recently tested positive for COVID-19 recently.
Probable Playing XIs:
Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf Du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C and WK), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar
Delhi Capitals: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant (C and WK), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Chris Woakes, Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma
Top Captaincy Picks for CSK vs DC GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
Chennai Super Kings
Shardul Thakur: Shardul Thakur was in sensational form for Team India during the recent series against India and England. The seamer bounced back strongly after being put under pressure and CSK could do well with his attitude this season.
Sam Curran: Sam Curran has developed into a phenomenal player over the last few years. He had a decent IPL 2020, scoring 186 runs in the lower middle-order and picking up 13 wickets. He was also on song in the series against India and almost single-handedly won England the final ODI.
Rishabh Pant: Rishabh Pant has been in the form of his IPL. Following a quiet IPL compared to his standards, he was dropped from the squad to tour Australia. Pant bounced back in style and helped India script an impossible win at The Gabba. He carried that form into the series against England, scoring a century in the Test series. Pant will be captaining DC in the IPL this season.
Marcus Stoinis: Marcus Stoinis had a productive IPL 2020 and worked his charm with both the bat and the ball. He scored 352 runs at a strike rate of over 148 and also struck 13 wickets. Stoinis also had a fruitful Big Bash League recently.
