After a Rayudu Heroics and Watson Show which destroyed best bowling line-up of SRH badly, the team is all set to consolidate their position in top two of the points table. On otherhand Delhi is not only out of Play-off contention but seeking some pride to take away with them which might help them to re-group and bounce back in next season. So far both teams have performed well and have won because of their batting only. So it will be really interesting to see which teams performs better and how.
Head to Head: Both teams have played 17 matches between them and CSK has won 12 with DD winning 5. Also, CSK has won the previous match this season against DD. Chennai definitely has a strong hold on Delhi.
Pitch: The match will be played at Firoz Shah Kotla in Delhi, so expect a wicket with full of runs. There are almost 0% chances of dew coming into play because of Heat wave in Delhi.
Comprison- Both teams are batting heavy and have players who have scored over 500 runs in tournament so far. Meanwhile the major concern is with their bowling only which is not so impressive and fielding is also a bit of concern especially for Delhi. Overall CSK has a fair edge over DD.
DD- Same team is expected to be retained, barring any injuries.
Playing XI:- P.Shaw, Jason Roy, Iyer(C), Pant(Wk), Shankar, H.Patel, A.Sharma, Lamichane, Amit Mishra, J.Dala, Boult
CSK- No changes are expected from Thala after a crushing victory against SRH.
Playing XI:- Watson, Rayudu, Raina, MS.Dhoni(Wk), Billings, DJ.Bravo, D.Willey, R.Jadeja, H.Singh, D.Chahar, S.Thakur
