IPL twenty20 – Delhi Daredevils try to stop the winning streak of Chennai Super King at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai

Today’s match will be played between two of the renowned Indian cricketer, one is the new era hero M.S. Dhoni and other is Delhi Dashing right hander Virendra Sehwag. Sehwag when played last time here at Chepauk scored a blistering triple century against the South Africans. So he would like to continue his good form with the bat.

Chenaai Supe King so far hasn’t lost a game yet and they would like to continue their winning streak and like to make their points into double figure. Chennai Super Kings will be playing their first match without their star performer so far M.Hayden, M.Hussey and Jacob Oram. So the headache of selecting the final XI is more or less over for M.S. Dhoni since they have left with only four foreign players in their rank (Albie Morkel, Stephen Fleming, Muttiah Muralitharan and Makhaya Ntini).

The untested Stephen Fleming will be asked to fill the big shoes of Matthew Hayden and with Mike Hussey and Jacob Oram too having left on national duty, the top order will have its task cut out against an attack that includes the in-form pair of Glenn McGrath and Mohd Asif.

A Delhi victory will make it a three way tie at the top of the league. If Chennai win, they will become the first team to go into double figures on the points table.

Delhi Daredevils Strong Points

  • Their top three batsman in prime form and if they get going then Chennai Super Kings may find themselves in trouble
  • They have two best and world class wicket taking bowler and they can destroy any batting

Delhi Daredevils Weak Points

  • They don’t have quality spinners in the line-up
  • If top order failed then they will find themselves in big trouble which we have already seen in match against King XI Punjab

Chennai Super King Strong Points

  • The Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni- cool captain and big hitter
  • Muralitharan Spin Magic
  • Youngster performing well in the pressurize situation

Chennai Super King Weak Points

  • Absence of M.Hayden, Hussey and J.Oram

Pitch at Chennai

Pitch at Chennai is full of run however due may play an important role and the captain won the toss would like to bowl first on beautiful Chepauk wicket.
