It's a tough challenge no doubt but a team comprising of Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo and Dhoni can never be discounted. On the other hand, MS Dhoni's CSK is fighting to stay alive in the playoff race. Their decision to bowl as many as seven bowlers and to make Sam Curran open the innings paid rich dividends.
Delhi Capitals (DC) pacer Kagiso Rabada became the fastest to complete 50 wickets in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday. 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. From Shikhar Dhawan to Marcus Stoinis, every top-order batsmen have made a mark in the tournament while their bowling attack has been second to none.
Both the teams will come into the clash after registering wins in their previous match.While CSK had swept aside David Warner's Sunrisers Hyderabad by 20 runs in their last game, Delhi Capitals sealed a 13-run win over Rajasthan Royals. South Africa's Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been highly impressive and have been ably assisted by R Ashwin and Axar Patel.
CSK were handed an early setback when they lost opener Sam Curran for a duck off the third ball of the match but Shane Watson (36) and Faf du Plessis (58) scored 87 runs for the second wicket.
The match will start at 7.30 pm IST (6 pm UAE time).
