Chennai are currently in second spot but a loss here would need them pray that one of Bangalore or Mumbai lose their last league matches. A win here would guarantee playoffs spot and if Lucknow lose to Kolkata later on Saturday, Chennai will finish top-two.

I am backing Chennai to start well and boss the powerplay phase. I am putting my money on Chennai Super Kings score more in the first six overs.

  • Chennai Super Kings have posted the highest powerplay score in 5 of their last 7 completed matches (IPL)
  • For Delhi Capitals, they conceded the most runs in the first 6 overs in 7 of their last 12 matches (IPL)
  • In the last 3 matches between these sides, Chennai Super Kings have scored the most powerplay runs (IPL)

Head to Head


In the 27 IPL matches between these sides, Chennai have won 17 and Delhi have won 10 so far. The recent matches have been close enough though, with Chennai winning five of the last nine.

Last time they played it was Chennai who demolished Delhi with a 91-run win last season. Devon Conway (87) and Moeen Ali (3/13) were the stars of the show.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi are eliminated from the playoff race and are 9th with 10 points. A win here will guarantee they don’t finish last. They are coming off a 15-run win over Punjab in Dharamsala.

It was a free-flowing performance that won the Capitals the game, with the top-order coming to the party. They would now look to change their home fortunes, having lost four of the last six here.

That would need Delhi to get adjusted to the low pace and bounce here. The average first innings score here this season is 168, the joint-lowest along with MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Mitchell Marsh’s injury saw Rilee Rossouw play and the South African could hold on to his place.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai Super Kings are 2nd in the standings but aren’t guaranteed a playoffs spot. They complicated their chances with a six-wicket loss to Kolkata at home.

It was another low-scorer where Chennai could only muster 144, struggling to come to terms with the pitch conditions. Kolkata’s chase was well executed as the Chennai spinners failed to take a single wicket.

With another similar pitch, it could be a test for their spinners once again. Ravindra Jadeja (16 wickets) could be crucial.

Chennai Super Kings Team News


Chennai could be tempted to field Mitchell Santner in place of Matheesha Pathirana on a slow wicket.
