The seventh match of the Indian Premier League season 2020 is played between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals at Dubai in Dubai International Stadium. CSK won their first game against Mumbai Indians. But they lost heavily against Rajasthan Royals.
But for Delhi Capitals, they won superbly against Kings XI Punjab in the super over. The more challenging battle lies ahead Delhi Capitals because they will face the three-time champion side Chennai Super Kings, who will aim to bounce back in their third match.
DC has played at Dubai International Stadium, so Iyer and his men have a slight advantage as they have played one match at this venue where they will take on CSK on Friday night. Will that help DC to romp CSK?
Chennai Super Kings – Team’s Preview
The three-time IPL champion went down in their second game against Rajasthan Royals. Their fast bowlers and spinners went for plenty against Steve Smith and co.
The CSK bowlers couldn’t handle the onslaught carried by Sanju Samson. His counter-attacking stroke play took the game away from Dhoni’s yellow army.
Now CSK will sort their bowling issues before they face DC. There may be a chance of Hazlewood coming in for Nigidi, and CSK should also look at the spinning options for their third game. Piyush Chawla was expensive in his four overs spell, which may allow Karn Sharma to come in at Chawla’s place.
CSK’s top order also failed to provide a good start. In the game against RR, Murali Vijay had a start, but he couldn’t convert it to a big one. If Amabati Rayudu is fit, CSK can open the innings with Raydu and Watson. Or Faf Du Plessis is good form, so he can also open the innings with Watto in the game against Delhi Capitals.
The opening duo of Watson and Du Plessis is a very successful pair for CSK after Mick Hussey and Murali Vijay. Watto and Faf were instrumental in winning the 2018 IPL title for CSK. Now in this crunch situation, CSK should go back to the same old pair for their third game.
Watson’s form is also worrying for CSK. He also got himself a good start, but he couldn’t convert that into a big score. CSK will want Watto to fire in their third game of this cash-rich league tournament. Watto’s contribution will be vital for CSK’s chances in this year’s IPL.
Faf has scored two back to back fifties in this season. He has been in great form. He has cemented his place in the absence of Suresh Raina, who used to bat at number 3 position. But if Faf opens the innings, then he might be even more dangerous for the opposition side. He can make the best use of the whole T20 overs, which is needed for CSK right now.
MS Dhoni should bat higher up the order in the game against DC. Many believe that Dhoni should not have experimented with the batting order in a stern run chase against RR. If Dhoni had batted at number 5, then CSK could have won the match because they lost the game by 16 runs with Dhoni came to bat at the number 7 position.
MS Dhoni’s tactical change of sending Sam Curran, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Kedar Jadhav didn’t work for the three-time champion team in their last match. This change by Mahi worked well for RR. But the experiments should help his team, not the opposition team.
CSK should look to add Shardul Thakur in place of Ruturaj Gaikwad. Shardul Thakur can bat lower down in the order, and he is also good with the new bat and the final few overs. Apart from Sam Curran, who has done well in the three matches. CSK will need another fast bowling all-rounder in playing XI.
Kedar Jadav is also one who can be replaced. Jadhav used to bowl for India in the ODI and T20I format. But his bowling skills aren’t used now. The Pune Batsman has been a promising talent, but he has not used that for a while now. CSK need a lower-order batsman till Bravo is not available. N Jagadeesan can be the first choice for that spot.
Jagadeesan is a middle-order wicket-keeper batsman from Tamil Nadu. CSK can pick him as a middle-order batsman who will bat at the number 6 position. He has high-quality skills with the bat, and he also can be looked as the future wicket-keeper who might represent India someday.
Delhi Capitals – Team’s Preview
DC won their first game of the IPL 2020 season by a close margin. They got a lucky escape because of the super over. Now, DC will aim to put a strong performance against a much more formidable opponent, Chennai Super Kings.
The batting line up of DC is good. They have good players at the top order. Dhawan and Shaw are quality opening batsmen. But against Kings XI Punjab, they failed to show their class. DC will want a good opening start from their openers in their next game.
Shreyas Iyer and Risabh Pant played well in the middle when three DC wickets went down quickly. Their partnership was the one that brought Dehli in the game. But Pant should have batted till the end along with Marcus Stoinis. But like always, Pant gave his wicket away after a good start.
A lot will be expected from the hero of the last match Marcus Stoinis. The Aussie all-rounder failed to deliver for his International team on the whole tour of England. But when he got an opportunity to represent the Delhi Capitals, he took his chances with both the hands. Due to Stoinis’s outstanding batting performance, DC managed to score 157 runs in their 20 overs.
The fast bowling department of Delhi Capitals is also as good as CSK. Rabada, Nortje, and Mohit Sharma are good pacers, but their spin bowling will depend on Ravichandran Ashwin’s fitness. Ashwin got injured in their first match. He bowled one over and picked up two wickets in that one over.
Axar Patel was another spinner for DC in the last game. But if Ashwin is not fully fit, then DC can include Amit Mishra as the replacement of Ashwin. DC can also try including Keemo Paul instead of Anrich Nortje and Daniel Sams in place of Shimron Hetmyer.
Sams is a fast-bowling all-rounder from Australia. He can bat with his teammate Marcus Stoinis in lower order position to finish the games for his side, and his four overs will be handy for the opposition batsmen as CSK wouldn’t have seen much of him.
According to the stats, Chennai Super Kings have the upper hand in the onfield battle against Delhi Capitals. These two teams have played 21 IPL encounters till now, and from that, Chennai Super Kings has won 15 matches, and Delhi Capitals have managed to win just six games till now.
