Match Preview

DELHI DAREDEVILS

It will be the second last game of this year’s campaign for the struggling Delhi Daredevils unit. There performance this year hasn’t  been one to remember. Reeling at the bottom of the table shows their struggle against other sides. The batting though is the only thing of which they could be proud of. Rishabh Pant has been in the form of his life, aggregating 582 runs in 12 outings and sitting second on the purple cap list shows his intent to go out and perform well for his side.

Rishabh Pant along with his skipper Shreyas Iyer and  Prithvi Shaw have been the batting mainstay for DD. The bowling looks a bit uncanny and has performed occasionally well, with Trent Boult being the only DD bowler to feature in the top  ten wicket takers of the season. Some glimpse of talent was shown by another under-19 player Abhishek Sharma in the last match against RCB.

Although they have performed in bits and pieces but the table surely doesn’t show the way they have played so far. They would love to sign off with a win in both their remaining games.

 CHENNAI SUPER KINGS

Chennai Super Kings on the other hand look comfortable and balanced with all their players chipping in and contributing at the right time. The squad looks balanced with the right proportion of both bowlers and batsmen.

Talking about comebacks, fast bowler Deepak Chahar had a perfect comeback in the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad with an economical spell of 1/16 in his quota of 4 overs. Their last match against the table toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad was expected to be a clash of the immortals at least for this season, but instead turned out to be a dead rubber with CSK winning the contest quite comfortably in the end with Ambati Rayudu scoring his maiden IPL century.
