This is perhaps the most important game of this tournament. Delhi Capitals (DC), the team in form, coming into this match after securing two back-to-back victories whereas Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is coming to this fixture with two losses on the trot.
We all know CSK has MS Dhoni but DC has a better side. The team is batting really well and most importantly, the game is not in Chennai, so the pitch will not turn much. Players such as Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Rishabh Pant, are all in form and they will be looking to carry their good form in this game.
On the other hand, Chennai’s opening order is not firing. Bowling looks good but their batting is the main issue here.
Suddenly, Delhi’s side looks a lot more balanced side. If you ask me, it might just be the night of the underdog and Delhi Capitals might just create history.
