Chennai Super Kings will take on the Delhi Capitals in their next encounter at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. The return of MS Dhoni as the skipper of CSK could not change the fortunes much and they are out of the race for the playoffs after the loss in the previous game. However, they will still be looking to end up high in the points table which will be a confidence booster for them going into the next edition.

On the other hand, the Delhi Capitals produced a sublime performance against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous game and managed to pull off a win despite big guns like Prithvi Shaw and Axar Patel suffering niggles. The return of Anrich Nortje will also be an addition as he has some serious pace in the armoury and he is likely to hold on to his place. It will be interesting to see if Shaw and Patel are fit for the game as they will then come in straightaway into the playing XI.

Match Details

Venue: Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai

Pitch Report

The previous game at the venue was a low-scoring affair and Gujarat Titans were thrashed completely by the Punjab Kings. It might not be the case this time around with the pitch getting better to bat on after some time and the skipper who wins the toss is likely to bowl first again.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the Match

Devon Conway:

Devon Conway has played two good knocks in the last two games for the Chennai Super Kings and he certainly is a big plus in the CSK set-up for the coming years. The New Zealand batter can keep wickets as well and has already scored 144 in three games so far in this edition. He is one of the quality players going around at the moment and will be looking to continue his good form.

Probable best bowler of the Match

Maheesh Theekshana:

Maheesh Theekshana has been a revelation for the Chennai Super Kings this season and he has continually been among the wickets column. The mystery spinner has picked up 11 wickets in seven games so far this season and he has been excellent in any phase of the game. He is one of the trump cards for the skipper and his overs will be crucial to the plans of the CSK side.
