The third game in the playoffs will see two sides who have a shot of making the finals of the Indian Premier League as Chennai Super Kings take on Delhi Capitals on Wednesday.
Chennai Super Kings are the defending champions of the IPL and are looking to showcase themselves as the side who will be having the best record in the history of the competition. The team has been incredible form, but are coming off a tough loss at the hands of Mumbai Indians. The batting order collapsed, and none of them except for Rayudu and captain Dhoni showed up. The franchise cannot afford to have yet another game like this, and they are expected to come out with all guns blazing.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals have lived to fight another day as they brushed off the competition they faced against SunRisers Hyderabad. The team has once again shown their character to not give up easily, and be in the contest regardless of what is happening. With this win, they have matched the best ever performance from this franchise in the history of the competition and if Shikhar Dhawan and comanage to pull yet another victory out of the hat, it will see the record of Delhi never making the finals of the IPL be done with.
Venue – Vizag Stadium, Vishakapatnam, India
Date & Time – 10th May | 7:30 PM IST

This pitch is a batting friendly track where runs can easily be scored, so spinners are generally bludgeoned during the last few overs even though they too have a chance of taking wickets.
