After an exciting weekend, cricket fans are impatiently waiting for more great performances in the upcoming matches of the Indian Premier League.
IPL is almost half way through and the picture of the Play-offs is pretty clear with the current Points Table tally.
On Monday, MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings to lock horns with Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi Daredevils at the MCA’s International Stadium in Pune.
Chennai Super Kings were at the top of the table until last night when Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Rajasthan Royals by 11 runs and added two more points to their total, making it 12 points.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings lost a close one to the Mumbai Indians where MI skipper Rohit Sharma’s outstanding batting lead the team to win.
And, team Delhi Daredevils recently hit the reset button when Gautam Gambhir decided to drop the captaincy which lead to Shreyas Iyer as the new captain of the team.
However, new captain came with new mind set and the owners witnessed the results instantly.
In the last match played by Delhi Daredevils beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 55 runs at their home ground. But, the team is still at the bottom of the Standings.
Match Prediction – Chennai Super Kings have a strong batting line-up with Ambati Rayudu in top class form and also top runner scorer for CSK this season.
While Delhi Daredevils’s Prithvi Shaw is a reliable run scorer in the T20 games and skipper Shreyas Iyer also has the ability to turn the tables. Shreyas is also the highest run-getter for Delhi Daredevils.
On papers, Chennai Super Kings has faced Delhi Daredevils on 16 different occasions and won 11 matches. Delhi Daredevils won just 5 matches.
It will be interesting to see whether young Shreyas can take on and counter Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s calm and cool composure.
