The seventh game will be played today between the CSK and Delhi Capital. Chennai is going to play the third match. After beating Mumbai in the first match, Dhoni will take to the track, bearing in mind the loss against Rajasthan Royals in the second match.
This is going to be Delhi’s second match. In their first games, DC won against Punjab. In such a scenario, the confidence of the team would increase. Although there will, on the one hand, be the passion of the young players in Delhi, on the other hand, established players in Chennai are more likely to face tough competition.
Talking about the Chennai side, the defeat of Rajasthan Royals on Sharjah’s batting pitch can be due to the weak showing of their spinners and a frustrating 20th place result, but the batsmen can’t overplay.
Especially Murali Vijay, Kedar Jadhav, and Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni himself, in their last match, Dhoni came out to battle in number seven. He sent Sam Curran, Kedar Jadhav, and Ruturaj Gaikwad to fight first, but this tactic failed miserably to push Faf Du Plessis to score too many runs in a short time.
In such a scenario, this veteran player can be seen batting first in the game against Delhi, and this time the fans were expecting massive innings with their bat. Apart from that, the Dhoni team’s spinners did not do well in the last match.
In such a scenario, Dhoni should replace Karn Sharma with Piyush Chawla in the squad. Now it remains to be seen if this is R.R. Ashwin is going to play in today’s match because his shoulder got injured. Unit Fielding Coach Mohammad Kaif said we’re going to settle on Ashwin after today’s practice.
But physio coming to train will determine whether or not Patrick will play. He said it was a positive thing that we had a bowler like Amit Mishra ready to take his spot.
