Chennai, May 01, Wednesday at 08:00 PM IST
Keeping the playoffs fight aside, it's time for the clash for the top position in the Vivo IPL 2019. The top two spot holders Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings will face each other at M Chidambaram in the night with an eye on fancing thier chances of finishing in top two positions.
Both the sides have made into the playoffs with eight wins in twelve outings and will be looking to continue their good run. A couple of changes are expected in host's line up tonight as the side looked quite fragile in the absence of MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Faf du Plessis. While Murali Vijay did managed some runs under his belt against Mumbai in the last game, a couple of changes are for sure tonight.
Delhi Capitals is soaring high on the top position on the back of a good net run rate and will be trying to retain the top spot.
The clash will begin at 08:00 PM IST tonight.

We all know what MS Dhoni is capable of and interestingly R Pant too can be the game changer as he averages above 45 against CSK.
