It is a match between two wicket-keepers in the evening fixture of the TATA IPL.
Rishabh Pant will lock horns with MS Dhoni and it will be an exciting contest to watch out for.
Delhi Capitals had a great game against Sunrisers Hyderabad which they won by 21 runs and are now sitting at 5th position in the points table.
Chennai Super Kings did not have a great game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they lost by 13 runs.
CSK can still make it to the playoffs by a mathematical fix, however, they would have to win all their matches from here on.
Even if CSK does win all of their games, it would, however, still be out of the playoffs by a very slight margin.
Delhi Capitals would once again like to move to the top 4 of the table so as to be able to continue their winning momentum.
Prithvi Shaw may make a comeback in this match as he was struggling with illness.
Similarly, it is important to see whether Dwyane Bravo and Axar Patel have recovered as well or not.
Moreover, we can expect a good matchup between Ambati Rayudu and Kuldeep Yadav in this match.
Similarly, if Bravo makes a comeback in today’s match, he will then be paired up against Rovman Powell.
