In Match 34 of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 Delhi Capitals (DC) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
Chennai Super Kings’ has returned to their old track again under the skilful captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In such a situation, it will be really interesting to see how CSK will face Delhi Capitals, which is sitting on the top of the points table.
MS Dhoni’s strategy in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad proved to be effective and his team will try to show a similar game against Delhi to maintain their hopes in the season.
Whether it was to field Sam Curran as the opener or using seven bowlers in the match, each of Dhoni’s tactics was successful in the previous game against SunRisers Hyderabad. Dhoni got leg-spinner Piyush Chawla to only one over and that too in the 16th over, he showed more confidence in Ravindra Jadeja and Karn Sharma.
There is every possibility that Chennai will again come down with three spinners on Sharjah’s continuously slowing wicket. The role of spinners has been crucial in Sharjah and the last two matches were also seen when the teams won by a good performance of the slow bowlers. Chennai now faces a team that is confident with consistent performances.
For Delhi, South African fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, who bowled a 156.2 kmph delivery during his spell against Rajasthan Royals, have handled the bowling very well. In the spin department, R Ashwin and Axar Patel bowled impressively while in the last match, fast bowler Tushar Deshpande made his IPL debut memorable.
The Delhi team, however, is worried about the fitness of captain Shreyas Iyer, who suffered a shoulder injury in the previous match. It is not yet confirmed if he would play his next match on Saturday again Chennai Super Kings. Iyer is in very good form and has also led the team well. Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant is already out due to injury. In such a case, the team will expect a good start from the talented Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan.
