IPL 2020, MATCH 7: CSK vs DC, CSK win the toss and elect to bowl


Guwahati:  Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Delhi Capitals in match seven of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Dubai on Friday. 

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) win the toss and elect to field against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the seventh match. 

CSK have pulverized DC into submission over the years and that is reflected in the head to head record, which CSK lead, 15-6. DC can claim to be a team reborn since last season but that didn’t affect their fortunes against the ‘yellow brigade’.

CSK beat them twice in the group phase last season and then ended their hopes of making it to the final by beating them in the play-off.

Both teams are still searching to find the perfect balance, Delhi Capitals’ batting collapsed in their campaign opener while CSK skipper MS Dhoni faced a lot of criticism for coming out to bat at number seven in a 200-plus chase against Rajasthan Royals.

Shreyas Iyer and his team will have to improve massively on their performance from their opening match.

Marcus Stoinis single-handedly took their score to respectability against KXIP and then did the trick with the ball too as DC forced a Super Over where Rabada was at his best.

The batting looked awful, to say the least and that needs to be fixed. Shikhar Dhawan was unlucky to be run out and the southpaw should be able to get his campaign going.

Prithvi Shaw looked undercooked and with Ajinkya Rahane in the squad, Ponting should opt for the experienced pro.
