Chennai, May 01, Wednesday at 08:00 PM IST
The Wednesday's clash in the Vivo IPL 2019 will be played at M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai between the top two spot holders Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings.
While there's no significance for the game in terms of playoff qualification, it will be the clash for the top spot which is currently held by the Delhi Capitals.
Owing to better net run rate, the visitors clinched the top spot from the defending champions Chennai Super Kings on Sunday with the 16 runs win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Both the teams share 16 points from eight wins in twelve encounters and will be looking to get going. When both the sides met previously in Delhi, the hosts faced 6 wickets drubbing.
So, can Delhi Capitals retain the top and avenge their home loss or will it be the hosts having an upper hand with the home advantage?
The coin will be tossed at 07:30 PM IST.
Total – 19
Delhi Capitals – 06
Chennai Super Kings – 13
