Match Details

Match: Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals, Match 7

Date: 25th September 2020, at 7:30 PM IST

Venue: Dubai International Cricket Ground, Dubai

What To Expect:

Dubai International Cricket Stadium has an average score of 160 in IPL 2020. Similar to the pitch in Abu Dhabi, the ball should come onto the bat fairly well initially with spin playing a significant role in the middle overs. The batsmen will be wary of the new ball bowlers, who should get some swing and bounce off the surface.

Both sides will look to chase on winning the toss given how dew has played a part in the previous games. 170 should be par at this venue although it could well be a formality considering the batting prowess on display.

Chennai Super Kings:

Rayudu if the fit would come back to the team and might replace either Vijay or Gaikwad. CSK might also consider changing their bowling unit after a poor show against RR.

CSK Predicted Playing XI:

Murali Vijay/Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C&WK), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Lungi Ngidi, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla/Shardul Thakur

Delhi Capitals:

Delhi Capitals had Marcus Stoinis to thank for their thrilling Super Over win against Kings XI Punjab last week. Despite getting the crucial win, there is a lot of room for improvement in the batting unit with Shimron Hetmyer and Prithvi Shaw eyeing a return to form in this fixture.

As for their bowling unit, all eyes are on Ravichandra Ashwin, who is a major doubt for this game after injuring his shoulder in the previous game. If Ashwin is fit, he would certainly take part in this game.
