Chennai Super Kings will clash Delhi Capitals in the 7th match of the Indian Premier League 2020. The match will be played on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time. Both, CSK and DC have a lot of firepower in their squads but somehow they haven’t delivered as per their expectations. For CSK apart from Faf Du Plessis and AmbatiRayudu, none has been able to make a mark in the tournament so far. Same goes with Delhi capitals, who even though won their match against Kings XI Punjab but wasn’t at their very best. There were some good knocks by ShreyasIyer and Marcus Stoinis but none went on to play a big knock. The form of Mohammed Shami with the ball, however, will bring some respite in the Delhi Capitals squad. The match is expected to go down the wire with CSK having a slight advantage due to the experience in their batting order.
CSK 14 -6 win record over Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League and will be looking to continue their streak. Delhi Capitals, however, cannot be counted out as they too have a brilliant team that, on their day can blow away their opposition.
