Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals:- After 11 years of waiting, Delhi Capitals will play their first qualifier ever in the history of Indian Premier League on Friday. Chennai Super Kings will take on Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier at Visakhapatnam.
The momentum will be Delhi’s side given the way they won the eliminator against SRH on Wednesday, while Chennai Super Kings would be a tensed dugout right now owing to the way they suffered defeat with the hands of Mumbai Indians in the first qualifier at Chepauk.
Chennai Super Kings
From Shane Watson’s form to poor display of fielding, Chennai Super Kings have a lot to get sorted ahead of the game against Delhi Capitals. Though, their record against Delhi Capitals would make them a happier side, having won 14 out of 20 games played so far.
The onus will be on experienced players like MS Dhoni, Faf Du Plessis, and Suresh Raina take their team over the line, while Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, and Deepak Chahar once again will be the biggest bets for CSK.
Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals:- Delhi Capitals will be high on confidence having won the last over thriller in the last game against SRH. However, the batsmen need to play cautiously, given Delhi have failed in both the games they played against CSK in the tournament.
Delhi’s most experienced player, Shikhar Dhawan will look to add some runs in his kitty as he will be the most important batsman for DC even as Rishabh Pant would like to continue his good form going ahead at the Qualifier 2 on Friday.
