The 55th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 will see Delhi Capitals (DC) take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday, May 8.
CSK have had a season to forget so far as they could register a win in only three games out of ten matches and are currently placed at the ninth spot in the points table. They failed to chase a decent total against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB ) in their previous fixture and need to put up an improved performance.
On the other hand, DC have kept their playoffs hopes alive by comprehensively defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the previous game. The Rishabh Pant-led side is at the fifth position in the table, and a win against CSK will take them close to the playoffs.
Head to head record
Played: 23 | CSK won: 14 | DC won: 9 | No result: 0
As seen in previous games, the ball grips and holds a bit off the surface in Navi Mumbai, making it a touch for strokeplay.
Both teams will look forward to chasing after winning the toss, with dew bound to have a say in the second innings.
