Delhi Daredevils will take on Chennai Super Kings in match number 52 of the Indian Premier League 2018 at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. There is really not much other than pride to play for the two teams. While Delhi have been knocked out of the tournament, Chennai are already in the playoffs.
Chennai were brilliant in the batting department against Sunrisers Hyderabad with Ambati Rayudu standing out with a hundred. Shane Watson also chipped in with a fifty while skipper MS Dhoni has been in magnificent form throughout. If anything, Chennai will need to work on their bowling, which wasn’t impressive against Hyderabad.
Delhi actually have nothing to lose. They will look forward to another splendid effort from Rishabh Pant. His hundred against Sunrisers Hyderabad was once in an IPL. Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw will also look to continue their good run. Like Chennai, they too would be expecting better from their bowlers.
