Chennai Super Kings will host the Delhi Daredevils at their new home, MCA Stadium, Pune in the 30th match of IPL 2018. Both teams so far have played seven games each and stands exactly opposite. Where CSK have won five games out of those while DD have lost five.
But after last match, DD will be high on confidence after their massive victory of 55 runs over KKR. Trent Boult was bowling consistently for them but after the emergence of Liam Plunkett and Avesh Khan, their bowling starts looking much stronger. Amit Mishra has also found his magic back with the ball. Their young batsmen Iyer, Shaw and Pant performing consistently is also a huge positive for DD.
CSK’s bowling look a concern for them as Deepak Chahar got his hamstring injured in the last match and won’t be available for next two weeks. Also, Ravindra Jadeja’s role in the side and Sam Billings consistency are other minor issues for them.
Delhi don’t have much reasons to make any change in their playing XI while CSK will have some forced changes. Either of Mark Wood/David Willey can be seen playing today in place Billings and Chahar might get replaced by Karn Sharma.
Warm temperatures are expected throughout the day but as it’s an evening game, it will be a relief for the bowlers out there.
