Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings 50th Match IPL 2021
Team News for Delhi Capitals
Delhi Capitals have an attacking wicket-taking pace bowling lineup, and they must be looking to maintain the same ahead of this crucial match. The opening pair is yet to shine in this 2nd leg of the IPL, but Prithvi Shaw, who is now back in the business after a knee injury, will try to provide an explosive opening stand with Shikhar Dhawan. Steve Smith has replaced injured Marcus Stoinis and is fitting well in the team’s combination in the middle order. Captain Rishabh would like the stability that Steven Smith brings to this batting lineup.
Likely playing 11 of Delhi Capitals
Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Steve Smith, Rishabh Pant(c, wk), Shimron Hetmyre, Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan
Team News for Chennai Super Kings
It was a heartbreaking loss for the Super Kings against Rajasthan Royals the other day despite scoring the highest score of the IPL 2021. They had rested a couple of key bowlers, which eventually showed in the bowling performance. After giving back-to-back chances to Sam Curran, Chennai will probably bench him as he has been a tad expensive so far.
Dwayne Bravo, who has taken 9 wickets in the last 5 matches for his team, is set to return to the squad. Wicket-taking bowler, Josh Hazlewood, will likely miss this game as the team management is looking for a possible substitute like Lungi Ngidi. Ruturaj Gaikwad would look to continue his rich vein of form.
Likely playing 11 of Chennai Super Kings
