Despite losing the last game against Rajasthan Royals, Chennai, on the other hand, are still holding on to the number one position on the points table. Perhaps, it tells you how well they have fared this year. CSK became the first team to qualify for the playoffs after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad in the game prior to the one against RR. They will be aiming for a top-two finish and thus would be keen to win their next two games.

CSK are coming into this encounter on the back of a defeat at the hands of the Rajasthan Royals. Their talented opener, Ruturaj Gaikwad struck as many as 11 boundaries to bring his maiden IPL century. His 100-run knock off 60 balls helped the team post a formidable 189-runt total in the first innings. Ravindra Jadeja’s 15-ball 32-run knock at the fag end of the innings also helped the team finish on a high.

However, despite those contributions, CSK lost the game by 7 wickets. The ball wasn’t doing much on a flat track in Abu Dhabi and RR batsmen made full use of the conditions. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube played two blistering knocks with the bat and helped the team chase down the score in just 17.3 overs. Deepak Chahar and Dwayne Bravo rested in the last game. Expect them to make a comeback on Monday.

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, would be riding high on confidence at the moment. Avesh Khan’s consistent performances with the ball have made DC’s bowling attack even more threatening. He picked three wickets in the last game and Axar Patel also bowled beautifully for his 3 for 21-run spell. Thanks to those fine performances, Delhi restricted MI to just 129 runs in the first innings.

There are concerns in the batting department, though. Runs aren’t coming from the bat of Prithvi Shaw and Steve Smith. Delhi Capital’s top three got out for just 30 runs in the second innings. Shreyas Iyer’s comeback into the side has been a blessing for them in the second leg.

Once again, he stood up with the bat and guided the team home in 19.1 overs. He stitched crucial partnerships with Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel and Ravi Ashwin to deny MI take control of the game. Shreyas Iyer remained unbeaten on 33 off 33 balls, helping the side chase down the score in 19.1 overs.
