Today, Chennai super kings has to face Delhi captains. DC and CSK are facing each other second time in IPL 2019. The first time CSK won the match. Both teams have qualified for the IPL 2019 playoffs. Delhi is at 1st position in the points table where CSK is at 2nd Position in the points table. So this clash between the table toppers of IPL 2019. Both teams try to win this match and want to finish in the top two. Because the top two teams get an extra chance to reach in IPL final.
CSK has lost their last match against Mumbai Indians. In this match, MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja did not play due to fever. So CSK will be hoping that both are available for today’s match. Earlier we have reported that Jadeja joined CSK’s training camp and maybe he will play today’s game.
Yesterday, CSK’s Coach Stephen Fleming told reporters on ms dhoni’s health.
Stephen Fleming said
“Dhoni is progressing, and he has been pretty sick during this week. We will make a call on him tomorrow. He is progressing which is good.”
MS did not join the CSK’s training camp yesterday, but Chennai will be hoping that he will fit before today’s match. Dhoni is the backbone of CSK’s team. He plays a vital role in CSK’s win because of his experience.
Former New Zealand captain speaks about the CSK’s performance, and he said “We had a couple of changes forced upon us in the last game, but the performance was not due to the fact that we had made those changes. We are more comfortable going into this game. We have been pretty good, from success-wise, here at Chepauk. Sometimes, just getting jolted out of the rhythm can be a good thing. Coming down the business end of the tournament, there is a lot on the line each game, so we are well aware of getting the selections right. We want to be as consistent as possible. And I don’t see that changing,
Head to Head (CSK vs DC) :
Both teams have played 19 matches against each other. CSK has won 13 matches out of them, and Delhi won 6 matches.
