So after the last ball thriller in the first match we are in Mumbai for the 2nd match of the season. The match will be played between CHENNAI SUPER KINGS & DELHI CAPITALS.
In the last season CSK finished last of the points table whereas DC were the runners up of the tournament. DC had managed to beat CSK both of the times in league stage last season. but still they can’t take CSK lightly because the Lions of the CSK are roaring to turn the tables this season. Under the captaincy of legend Mahendra Singh Dhoni CSK will look to win this years trophy.
On the other hand DC has a new captain. because Shreyas Iyer injured himself in the odi series against England, he will miss the whole season of this years IPL. so this is the chance for ever improving Rishabh Pant to lead the team to their 1st ever IPL trophy. with the help of coach Ricky Ponting & experienced players like Ajinkya Rahane, Ashwin, Smith etc. Rishabh will look to win his 1st championship.
Venue & Conditions-
As will all know no team has home advantage this year, so CSK & DC will play their matches also in the neutral venues. this match will take place in the Wankhede Stadium of MUMBAI. we know that pitch of the Wankhede Stadium favous the fast bowlers & it’s a much batting friendly wicket.so high scoring match is expected. the team winning the toss will look to bowl first. As chasing is easy in the ground with the help of dew.
