After winning the Eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Capitals face Chennai Super Kings in the Qualifier 2 on Friday the 10th of May. Both teams would be keen to win the game to reach the final on the 12th of May against Mumbai Indians.
Chennai Super Kings enter the game after their batting order miserably failed in the qualifier 1. The pitch in Visakhapatnam might just suite the CSK batsmen and bowlers. Despite their loss CSK should enter the game with the same playing 11. The pitch will assist Tahir, Jadeja and Harbhajan.
Delhi Capitals have their winning combination set hence DC too would play with an unchanged side. Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw’s good form should work for the Capitals. While, Amit Mishra and Axar Patel will play a crucial role against good Delhi batsmen.
In the last CSK and DC encounter, the Capitals batsmen collapsed like a pack of cards ending chase at 99. No matter the result it’s expected to be a cracker of a contest, after all it’s experience against a youngsters side.
