CSK vs DC
Chennai Super Kings will aim to gain back their top position when they take on the Delhi Capitals for the 50th match of the Indian Premier League on Wednesday. A clash of the Titans is on the cards as both the teams take on each other at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Both the teams have qualified for the playoffs but the top spot is up for grabs as the winning side would consolidate their position.
With Dhoni's availability still in doubt, the CSK would aim to come out all guns blazing when they take on a rampaging Delhi Capitals. The last time both the teams met, CSK handed over a 6-wicket loss to the hosts Delhi Capitals in the Feroze Shah Kotla. Shikhar Dhawan's half-century was overshadowed by Watson's knock as DC failed to register a win against the CSK.
Will CSK complete a double over against the Delhi Capitals or would DC continue their winning streak?
Other players must step up in Dhoni's absence: Stephen Fleming
Dhoni has remained sick during this week. We will make a call on him on the match day. If Dhoni is not playing, other players must step up.
Dhawan says his team wants to continue their winning momentum
We want to continue our winning momentum. We are against the idea of giving a player a chance only because he hasn't played a single game.
