DC vs CSK | Delhi Capitals will meet the Chennai Super Kings for Qualifier 2 in the Indian Premier League. After losing to Mumbai Indians, now the Chennai Super Kings have a second chance to make their way into the finals. The defending champions won seven of their eight matches but they went on to lose five in the following seven.

CSK batting woes

Chennai Super Kings are battling with their crumbling batting line-up this season. They started off on a high note this season but faltered somewhere in the middle. Their average runs per wicket stood at 36.48 in 2018 but this season, it has got reduced to 28.23. Moreover, none of the CSK feature in the top 10 run-getters. The team boasts of match-winners like Shane Watson, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Faf du Plessis. They have risen to some occasions but have lacked consistency this season.
