Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will clash against Delhi Capitals (DC) in Match 7 of the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Friday, September 25.
CSK won their season-opener against Mumbai Indians (MI) but lost their next encounter against Rajasthan Royals (RR). MS Dhoni-led side will be coming to the match without Ambati Rayudu, so Ruturaj Gaekwad is most likely to retain his spot.
On the other hand, DC enthralled one and all with a nail-biting encounter which they eventually won against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).
Pitch and Weather Report
Although the pitch in Dubai has always favoured spinners, pacers are likely to trouble batsmen with the new ball. Dew factor will come into play in the second innings, so the skipper who will win the toss is expected to bowl first.
Overall, a riveting contest awaits between the young guns of DC and veterans of CSK.
Chennai Super Kings: Shane Watson, Murali Vijay, Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Sam Curran, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi
Delhi Capitals: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin/Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Mohit Sharma
