67th Match- Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings
It's safe to say that the Chennai Super Kings are currently in "Que Sera Sera" mode. The wheels of fate cannot be stopped," Michael Hussey declared rather wonderfully in front of their last association game against Delhi Capitals, on Friday.
In spite of being put second on the focuses table, their season finisher capability chances depend on the aftereffect of their last association game. A success gets them the compartment, and a misfortune would leave their destiny holding tight the occasions somewhere else in the opposition (they will require one of LSG, MI or RCB to lose). That is not by any means the only concern - there's likewise a main two completion in question.
There is intricate math at play, and Hussey believes that simplifying is the best way to get out of this mess—the cliched "give it your best shot and ignore the rest" approach.
After all, their opponents no longer have that burden. Shane Watson acknowledged that the Delhi Capitals, who were the first team eliminated from the competition, are using the opportunity to spoil the party for the others as motivation. They dominated Punjab Kings without the pressure to win, and they would like to put an end to a disappointing home run with a victory.
Watson, on the other hand, is unsure whether they will be able to repeat the success of the previous match at their home venue, where they have only won two out of six games. The pitches at home haven't fit the crew they have collected, he accepts. But in the end, where will the home field be? The hawkers were selling yellow jerseys on the streets a day before the game, despite DC's branding of "Come wearing blue" inside the stadium.
But on the big day, can the team that faltered under pressure upset CSK's composure?

Where: Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings, Arun Jaitley Stadium, New Delhi
What's in store: The mid-May afternoon game will not be pleasant for the players, those working behind the scenes, or the crowd because temperatures are expected to reach 43 degrees Celsius. Hussey, in light of judgment from how the pitch has played up to this point, accepts it's probably not going to be a high-scorer yet doesn't maintain that his side should stroll in with any assumptions.
Matchups and tactics: Ambati Rayudu and Ajinkya Rahane have not only scored a lot of goals against the Delhi Capitals, but they have also scored a lot more quickly. However, both have struggled against Kuldeep Yadav; the left-arm spinner has bowled them out twice, averaging only 9.5 and 13.5 runs per over.
Probable XII: David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Phil Salt, Rilee Rossouw, Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Axar Patel, Aman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed
Chennai Super Kings
Tactics & Matchups: Deepak Chahar has an excellent track-record against Prithvi Shaw, dismissing the opener six times in nine IPL innings.
Probable XII: Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana
Did You Be aware?
Axar Patel is the only player this season to score more than 200 runs and take 10 wickets. In their 65-ball face-off, Axar Patel has never been able to dismiss MS Dhoni. In his last six dismissals, Ruturaj Gaikwad has fallen to a spinner who has turned the ball away from him. However, he has only conceded 75 runs while controlling the CSK captain on the majority of days.
To be completely honest, the pitches in Delhi haven't been great. They most likely are perfect in the event that you have a great deal of Indian top request players. Then that wicket will suit that group. However, that is not how our team is made up. We saw last night exactly what can happen with our batting line-up if we can play on a good traditional cricket wicket where the ball goes through nicely and doesn't really turn much.
- Shane Watson, Delhi Capitals' assistant coach
What they said:
He's (MS Dhoni) actually batting great, he's actually roused to continue coming to preparing, chipping away at his game. Hes actually raising a ruckus around town all around well. We've seen him arrived behind schedule in the innings and polish things off all around well . he's actually got that six hitting skill. While he is getting a charge out of it and adding to the group, there's not a great explanation for why he can't continue onward... perhaps for an additional five years?
