The fourth match of this year’s IPL will see Delhi Capitals (DC) welcoming defending champions Chennai Super Kings. With both the team fully confident on the back of their impressive wins in their respective tournament openers, the upcoming game looks set to be a cracker. Chennai Super Kings began their title-defence by thrashing Royal Challengers by seven wickets. The Super Kings had bowled out the Royal Challengers for just 70 before chasing it down with utmost ease.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals proved their title credentials by getting the better of three-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians (MI). The Delhi-based outfit thoroughly outplayed their opponents in every section of the game to start the season on a winning note. Riding on Rishabh Pant’s blazing fifty, Delhi Capitals piled up 213 for 6 before bowling out the Rohit Sharma-led side for 176 to register a deserving 37-run win.
But before Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals (DC) take on each other in the mouth-watering clash at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Tuesday, their captains MS Dhoni and Shreyas Iyer decided to keep the rivalry aside and enjoy a game of table-tennis together. Both the India teammates were enjoying their time together as Sakshi, wife of MS Dhoni, cheered on from behind.

Chennai Super Kings favourite:
While Delhi Capitals (DC) look like the team to beat at the moment, they should be worried about their dismal track record against Chennai Super Kings. So far, both the teams have locked horns against each other on 18 occasions. The Super Kings have won 12 of them while the remaining six went Delhi’s way.
Chennai Super Kings also enjoy a good record at the Feroz Shah Kotla, having won 4 games while losing two against the hosts.
