It’s match day 7 in IPL 2020 as Chennai Super Kings lock horns with Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Stadium on September 25 (Friday). Chennai will have more urgency after losing their last game, while Delhi will look to bank on their confidence after Super Over win. We bring you the match prediction of match 7 of IPL 2020 between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni copped up severe criticism for batting lower in the order which resulted in Chennai losing against Rajasthan Royals. It will be interesting to see if he walks in the batting order after getting a go in the last game. With Dwyane Bravo attaining fitness, it will be exciting if Chennai leaves out Sam Curran, who performed well in the last two games.
On the bowling front, Deepak Chahar will have a smile on his face to see some grass cover on Dubai wicket. Three out of Delhi Capitals’ top-five batsmen are left-handed, and with Harbhajan Singh opting out, not one of CSK’s spinners can turn the ball away from them to cause problems.
Speaking on Delhi Capitals, they will be high on confidence after their Super Over win against Kings XI Punjab. If Shreyas Iyer & Co can exploit Chenani’s weak link in the spin department, Delhi can pocket another two points and go on top of the points table.
