Chennai and Delhi have met in 18 IPL matches in the past with the team from south enjoying

fair share of success. Chennai clinched 12 of those matches while Delhi emerged victorious in only 6.

Team News

At the start of the season South African pacer Lungi Ngidi was ruled out of the CSK squad owing to injury. No foreign replacement has been announced as his replacement as yet.

Apart from Ngidi's injury, the medical bulletin of both the teams should be a cause of concern to the respective skippers.


DC has enjoyed a great start. But against a team like CSK, side's ability to maintain rhythm and sustain momentum will be questioned. DC have a young captain in Shreyas Iyer. And against him will be Dhoni. For DC to win this one Iyer will have to excel in tactical side of his captaincy. But not many captains are able to to that against Dhoni specially in IPL.

Betting Odds (bet365)

DC: 1

CSK: 4/5

    Shane Watson, Man of the Match "It was a little better than Chennai, the wicket (laughs). It was a bit slow, so it was nice to get a few out of the middle. I got a calf injury in the Big Bash, and I'm just trying to bat well. The PSL was a lot of fun, and great to be able to reconnect with the Chennai guys again."

    MS Dhoni CSK captain: "The wicket turned more than expected in the firt innings. In the second innings there was enough dew. The bowlers did well to restrict them to 150. The batsmen we have like a bit of pace, and like it to come on to the bat. Losing Ngidi at the start was a big blow, because he was the quickest, but other than that we were well-covered in all the areas. I don't think we will be a very good fielding side, but we will be a safe fielding side. You don't want the XI to push too hard and get injured. We might bleed a few runs and make up for that with experience. We haven't done well at the death, so plenty of areas to work on, but still a good victory."

    Shreyas Iyer DC captain : "For the new batsman pitch was really tough. I personally don't have trouble against spinners but today it was turning and I was finding it tough. Our best batter Rishabh Pant also found it tough. The wicket was slow and that's why I decided to bat first. We were 10-15 runs short. I wouldn't blame batting. We could have restricted them in the powerplay. There are lot of games remaining and this is just the beginning. Lots of positive to take out from this match."
