DC vs. CSK IPL 2020: The team of Chennai Super Kings, a team full of experienced players, will be facing the young Delhi Capitals today. The Chennai team was defeated in the last match against Rajasthan while Delhi had beaten Punjab in super overs in a thrilling match. In this match, Chennai captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni can make some changes. In the last two matches, he was criticized for batting in the lower order, so he is expected to play in his top-order as a major change against Delhi. While spinner Piyush Chawla proved to be very costly in the last match, Imran Tahir could replace him in this match.
Chennai's Murli Vijay and Shane Watson will be seen as the opening pair. With Faf du Plessis in the middle order, Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, and young Gaikwad can play. Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja can be seen to provide fast movement to the innings in the lower order. In bowling, Lungi Ngidi and Deepak Chahar will play the role of the pacer. Jadeja and Tahir will be the spine bowling backbone of the team. The Delhi team is looking very balanced, and the team has won in the first match, and the expectations of changes are very low. Amit Mishra can replace the injured spinner, R Ashwin. Dhawan and Prithvi will start the innings while the middle order will have Shreyas, Rishabh, and Marcus Stoinis. Fast bowling is likely to remain at the hands of Rabada and Anrich Nortje.
