The 50th game of the 12th season in the Indian Premier League will see two leaders face off as Chennai Super Kings host Delhi Capitals on Wednesday.
Chennai Super Kings are the defending champions of the IPL and they are looking to be the side who take it home one more time. They have proven to be the benchmark this season, and have also given some due rest to their key players. It is clear that this franchise nowhere near as potent as they need to be without captain MS Dhoni, and he will be looking to bring back the solidity that was missing from the side in the last outing where they got outplayed in all three departments in the sport of cricket.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals are continuing their great run and are currently the leaders of the IPL. The team has won 8 games out of 12 played. They are looking really strong right now and will be looking to prove why this franchise has come leaps and bounds since their past days. Coach Ricky Ponting has done a phenomenal job, and with the playoff berth already sealed, there is a good chance the bench strength could be tested in the remaining two games of the regular season.
