VenueFeroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
Delhi Daredevils continued with their poor performance while losing against the determined Rajasthan Royals at their own field. The skipper of DD, Kevin Pietersen, is not enjoying his batting and they have drifted down on the points table with just four. Chennai Super Kings never looked back after their first defeat suffered vs. Kings XI Punjab, they have won the remaining five games played and are on top of the chart with 10 points.
The batting of DD revolves around Jean-Paul Duminy, Murali Vijay, Quinton de Kock and Dinesh Karthik whereas Jaydev Unadkat, Shahbaz Nadeem and Mohammed Shami are looking after the bowling affairs.
Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith are the run machines for CSK while Suresh Raina and their skipper, MS Dhoni are competent batsmen. Ravindra Jadeja was the ‘Player of the match’ in their previous encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders when he grabbed four important wickets. Mohit Sharma is their main wicket taker and Ravichandran Ashwin is bowling reasonably well.
