Chennai Super Kings seem like a toothless tiger this season with just three wins in ten games. RCB added to their misery in their recent outing handing them their seventh loss this season by 13 runs. Chasing a total of 173 to win, Super Kings were restricted to 160. Regular wickets picked by RCB towards the last quarter of CSK’s innings, derailed the chase. Moeen Ali, returning to the side, made an impact with the ball and bat but his efforts went in vain.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals finally had the kind of performance that they had been yearning for all season. They crushed Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last outing by 21 Runs. A 122-run stand off 66 balls from David Warner and Rovman Powell took them to a massive total of 207. In the chase, Khaleel Ahmed starred with the ball striking thrice. Sunrisers got too far behind the rate too early in the chase and were totaled at 186/8.
Rishabh Pant’s men will be going into the game with a confidence boost after their recent game. The Capitals will now be looking to keep the loss aside and take the field with a new zeal. Anrich Nortje and Mitchell Marsh’s return will further strengthen their bowling attack as both played a crucial role in their recent game. Meanwhile, Super Kings will fight hard to lift themselves up on the points table. CSK has 6 points from 10 matches and is almost out of play-off contention.
