“Really looking forward to the game, it's nice to be involved in another playoff. We've played some good cricket and looking forward to the opportunity, it's a big moment and hopefully we'll get through. The main thing is to stay calm, remember what you wanted to do and just remember the basics. We just can't get carried away with the moment, try and play our best cricket. It would be nice (to get some time off if they win tonight), it was back-breaking to play three matches on the bounce. Maybe one training session before we go into the finals day, that would be ideal. You have to try and use the conditions as much as possible, it's been some changes needed as compared to the last season - I have tried to be as tight as possible, try and hit the stumps as much as possible. I have to see, don't want to think about it, but he (Faf du Plessis) has been playing very well, so I don't know how it will go.”

IPL 2021 QUALIFIER 1 MATCH TODAY: Pitch Report
"Today there is a shorter and longer boundary square. 62 one way, 74 the other. Haydos is here. What do you see? I see a better surface than the one Delhi Capitals went down on (against RCB). There is less grass, it is nice and dry. But the cracks haven't come into play because this is only the third time we are using this pitch. 160 is the score, but if the middle order gets going 170 is an option. Four captains have decided to bat first and only one of them was successful. The other seven have decided to chase off which five have been successful. Chasing seems to be the way here and that's because the pitch doesn't change much."
-Reckon Pommie Mbangwa and Matthew Hayden

DC vs CSK Live Score: Can Dhoni stop Pant's encore?
The last time these sides met, DC pipped CSK for a three-wicket win. Batting first, Chennai posted 136/5 in 20 overs. In response, Pant and Co. chased down the target with 2 balls to spare. In fact, Delhi have won both their league meetings but Dhoni knows this game matters more than any other.

IPL 2021 Live Score: It's Rishabh Pant vs MS Dhoni
DC vs CSK is always a highly-anticipated contest as it sees Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni, the junior and senior, square off against each other. Dhoni was a torchbearer for the wicketkeeper-batsman community in the past before he handed over the reins to Rishabh Pant. In IPL 2021, however, they have endured very contrasting forms. While Pant has smashed 362 runs in 14 games, Dhoni has managed to register 96. Can Dhoni win the battle today?
