Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in IPL history in 2020 will be up against the mighty Delhi Capitals side tonight in Mumbai. Chennai Super Kings will be having the services of Suresh Raina back on the side which will be a huge plus for them and they have brought in new talented recruits.
This will be the 24th meeting between the two sides in which CSK has had the upper hand on most of the occasions with 15 wins while Delhi has won 8 times. Both teams will not be having any home advantage and they will look to pack the bowling attack with a lot of quicks in a Mumbai wicket which has a lot to offer for the pacers.
3 Chennai Super Kings Players Who Can Be Game Changers Against Delhi Capitals:
Faf Du Plessis:
Faf Du Plessis had an excellent run of form in the last season despite the overall downfall of Chennai Super Kings and he was the top scorer for the franchise last season. The South African batsman has retired from test cricket and has shifted his focus to limited-overs cricket with two successive T20 World Cup coming up.
Faf is an excellent player of spin and Dhoni likes to have him at the top of the order to play the anchor role. He can be a match-winner if he stays for a while and can press the accelerator if needed. He provides good starts at the top and he will play a key role in CSK’s success this year. He is an excellent fielder and contributes a lot to the team’s likings.
