IPL 2018 | MATCH 52 | DD vs CSK | FANFIGHT | FANTASY CRICKET PREVIEW

DD vs CSK: Over the last two weeks Delhi has been hit by thunderstorms, literally. So to speak their IPL franchise has been hit by a series of losses too. DD were thoroughly blown out of the IPL 2018 after their defeat against RCB in the last game. DD are rock-bottom with 6 points in 12 games. After Gautam Gambhir was dethroned as the skipper, Shreyas Iyer did manage his team with aplomb but the results seem to have not gone his way. The likes of Prithvi Shaw, Abhishek Sharma, Rishab Pant and Iyer got the team running but it’s the foreign players’ contribution that has let them down. DD vs CSK isn’t going to change the table much but there’s a lot to play for.

SUPER KINGS CAN CONFIRM A TOP 2 FINISH

They’ve played the IPL 9 times so far and every time they’ve qualified for the playoffs. That’s how tremendous their record is in this pompous league. Chennai Super Kings always seem to get things done in the most efficient manner. Be it the team selection at the players’ auctions or the move to send Ambati Rayudu up the order. The men in yellow are currently 2nd on the table with 16 points and a win here will guarantee them a top 2 finish. Again, there’s no place for complacency in this fast-paced league. A lose/win can distort the momentum and hence CSK are certain to go full throttle. They beat the league leaders comfortable in the last game, courtesy, a splendid century by Rayudu. They now go to the extreme south of the table. Next station, Delhi.

DD have managed to win only 1 of the last 9 games played between the two sides. CSK verily walk as favourites for this fixture.

VENUE: THE FEROZ SHAH KOTLA, DELHI

PITCH CONDITIONS

Barring the first game of the season at this venue, the other 4 have been heavy scoring games. 180 has been the par score when the team walks in to bat first. However, 180 doesn’t seem defend-able. SRH chased down 187 at a canter and RCB made light weather of the 181 runs DD posted on the scoreboard. The turf is an absolute peach to bat on. Delhi just don’t have the bowling firepower to defend. Win the toss, bat first, put 200 runs on the board. That might deem effective against the CSK might.
