GROUND AND PITCH REPORT:
The Chidambaram Stadium has been the slowest wicket of the tournament and spinners get a lot of assistance on this ground! Balls turn like crazy and batsmen find it difficult to score quickly on this wicket.
The average score on this wicket in the last 6 matches played here has been 140 odd, and not so many matches have seen high scores.
A total of 68 wickets have fallen in the last 6 matches being played here, with spinners taking the majority of the wickets. So on average 5-6 wickets have fallen in an innings here.
TEAMS HEAD TO HEAD:
TOP PERFORMERS IN HEAD TO HEAD MATCHES:
MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina have scored heavily against DC in head to head matches. They have scored 476 & 428 respectively.
Dwayne Bravo had taken 11 wickets in head to head matches.
At The Chidambaram Stadium, DC have won only 2 out of 7 matches against CSK.
Both Teams have qualified for the playoffs. This match is all about who is the superior team of the IPL 2019. The winners sit on the No.1 spot on the points table.
Delhi has won 6 out of the last 7 matches they have played.
CSK, on the other hand, has won only 1 of their last 4 games.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
CSK made a lot of changes and went Dhoni-less again and also without Jadeja and DuPlessis the team looked really weak.
So these three may come back into the squad for this game.
DC, on the other hand, has to win winning every game are look undefeatable!
They have all the variety in the spin department and have 2 X-FACTORS in Rishabh Pant and Kagiso Rabada.
