Dubai: The 7th match of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be played between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Delhi Capitals (DC) in Dubai today. This is Chennai's third match this season, while it will be Delhi's second match. According to records, Chennai has always proved to be a quarterback against Delhi. In the last 5 matches between the two, Chennai has scored 4 wins.
Chennai defeated Delhi in 3 matches played between the two last season. This will be the first match between the two teams in Dubai. Earlier, in the last match played against Rajasthan, Dhoni had got batting at number 7. Prior to Dhoni, Sam Karen, Ravindra Jadeja and Kedar Jadhav were sent to bat. Chennai lost by 16 runs in the match. After this, Dhoni was severely criticized for the batting order.
Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo are confused about playing for Chennai. Rayudu did not play the previous match against Rajasthan due to hamstring problems. Bravo was left out of both the opening matches of this tournament. In such a situation, there is a doubt about these two players being in the playing XI.
