Chennai Super Kings(c) are set to face Delhi Capitals(DC) in the 55th match of the Indian Premier League(IPL) in the second clash of the doubleheader on Saturday, May 8 at the Dr. D.Y. Patil Stadium in Mumbai.
Chennai Super Kings:
MS Dhoni recently took charge of Chennai Super Kings but after winning the first match upon his return, the Yellow Army could not continue the momentum. They are out of the race for the playoffs after the loss in the previous game. They only managed to register 3 wins in 10 matches and are currently placed ninth in the table. However, they will still be looking to end up high in the points table which will be a confidence booster for them going into the next edition.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals delivered an impressive performance against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous game and managed to pull off a win despite key players like Prithvi Shaw and Axar Patel suffering injuries. The return of Anrich Nortje will also be an addition as he has some serious pace in the armory and he is likely to hold on to his place. It is to be seen if Shaw and Patel are fit for the game as they will then come in straightaway into the playing XI
