The second game of super Sunday will see the reunited battle of two wicketkeeper captains. It’s the battle between Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) face Delhi Capitals (DC) in the night game.
Both teams have had a mixed bag kind of a season. CSK have managed only three wins from their 10 games. A loss here will mean that they fail to go past the league stage for only the second time in IPL history.
The situation isn’t as dire for DC, who are knocking on the doors of a top-four spot, notwithstanding their up and down results so far. They’ve had some key people hitting form in the batting department and will be wishing for that to continue. However, the question marks over the bowling form of the likes of Shardul Thakur has still no answers.
