Match 34, Indian Premier League, 2020
Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings
Date- Saturday, 17th October 2020
Time- 7:30PM (IST), 6:00PM (Local Time)
Venue- Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah
Pitch Report- Though the ground is a batting-friendly pitch, the teams that win the toss in T20 matches here prefer bowling first. This is considering the dew factor. As most of the T20 matches are evening-night matches, the dew falling and wide cracks on the pitch makes it difficult for the bowlers to control the ball in the second innings. The average first innings score here is around 195. It's a starry contest and will be a total run-affair.
Weather Report- There are no chances of rain at Sharjah. It will be a full game!
DEL's captain Shreyas Iyer got injured in the last game, and he might be rested in this game.
CHE made a surprising change of sending Sam Curran to open with Watson and it might continue as well in this game too.
Expected Change- One change is expected from DEL, whereas one/no change from CHE is expected.
Risky Picks- M Dhoni from Chennai & A Carey from Delhi can be your risky picks for your fantasy teams in this game.
