हम गेंदबाजी करेंगे। हमने अब तक जो भी मैच खेले हैं, लोगों को लगा कि शुरुआत में तेज गेंदबाजों को थोड़ी मदद मिली, यह एक कठिन विकेट है, लेकिन बाद में यह बेहतर हो सकता है। हम किसी भी खेल के बावजूद इसे सरल रखने की कोशिश करते हैं। हम अपनी कमियों का विश्लेषण करते हैं और इससे हमें मदद मिली है। हम वही ग्यारह खेल रहे हैं।-एमएस धोनी, सीएसके कप्तान
We are fine with the toss, but we also have to bowl first. A little nervous, but it’s part of the game. One change for us – Tom Curran will replace Ripple Patel. When you win the game, the confidence level is high, but we will not take the match lightly.Rishabh Pant, DC Captain
Guru and disciple teams will face each other to make it to the final
Forget what happened till now, what will happen in this week will be recorded in the pages of history. The final phase of IPL has started from today where the young fighters of Delhi will take on the experienced warriors of Chennai. This means that this week we will get the winner of Season-14. Now the big question is will we get a new IPL champion this time?
If the figures are to be believed, then Chennai has the upper hand.
Delhi finished this season on top of the league stage while Chennai Super Kings finished second, but the one who wins today will directly qualify for the final while the losing team will be given another chance to enter the final.
Talking about this season, Delhi has beaten Chennai in both the league games. But the team of Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings have faced each other 25 times in IPL so far. During this, Dhoni’s team has defeated Delhi 15 times, while Delhi has won 10 matches. That is, if we talk about the overall record, then Chennai has the upper hand in this match. Chennai has a lot of experience of playing in the playoffs and has been through to make it to the last four only once in IPL history.
This is also New Delhi
Delhi Capitals, who traveled till the final last year, impressed everyone with their performance this time and the team is now being considered as a strong contender. The biggest hand behind the success of Delhi is the bowlers who destroyed the best batting order on the basis of their strong performance.
