While on one hand there will be the enthusiasm of the young players of Delhi, on the other hand, the army of experienced players of Chennai. There are chances of tough competition in the competition.
Talking about the Chennai team, their spinners’ poor performance and disappointing 20th over can be attributed to the defeat against Rajasthan Royals on Sharjah’s batting pitch.
In that match, Dhoni went to bat at number seven. He sent Sam Kuren, Jadhav and Ruturaj Gaikwad off the bat before himself but this strategy failed miserably for him. The pressure increased on Faf du Plessis to chase such a high score in a short time.
In such a situation, this veteran player can be seen batting in the middle order in the match against Delhi The fans will be hoping for big innings with their bat this time. Apart from this, the spinners of Dhoni’s team had performed poorly in the last match. In such a situation, Dhoni can give Karan Sharma a place in the team in place of Piyush Chawla.
The victory in the opening match for Delhi Capitals has increased their players’ confidence considerably. The Delhi team has big hitters like Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Captain Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw, and the hero of last match Marcus Stoinis.
Delhi team may have to introduce some changes in their bowling line up as Ravichandran Ashwin may be absent due to a shoulder injury. Senior spinner Amit Mishra may have the chance to field Akshar Patel as a partner if Ashwin fails to play. In such a situation, Delhi may have to make some changes in their bowling line up.
The team’s fielding coach Mohammad Kaif said the match, “We will decide on Ashwin after today’s practice session. He is coming for training. Our physio Patrick Farhart will decide ‘. He said, ‘It is a good thing that we have a bowler like Amit Mishra ready to replace him with a lot of experience’.
