Teams Preview

Chennai Super Kings

England’s Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa, all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham and Cheteshwar Pujara are notable signings made by Chennai for the coming edition of the league.

Pacer Josh Hazlewood has decided to skip this year’s IPL due to personal reasons. The franchise has yet to name a replacement for Hazlewood for the coming season.

In the batting department, the side will be relying on the experienced trio of Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu to make decent scores in this opening contest.

Last year, Faf du Plessis was the most consistent player with the bat and finished the competition with 449 runs in 13 innings at a strike rate of 140.75. Former South African captain will be hoping to continue his excellent form with the bat in this year’s competition.

Besides du Plessis, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni will need to put in crucial scores for Chennai Super Kings to post a competitive score on the board.

Ruturaj Gaekwad was a valuable find for the batting department in the previous edition of the league. In six appearances for Chennai, he accumulated 204 runs at an average of 51.00 with three half-centuries.

The big positive news for Chennai is all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been declared fit and will certainly be included in the final XI for the opening encounter.

Delhi Capitals

Last year’s finalist seemed to have covered all the bases to make a serious dash at the coveted trophy.

Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant has been named captain of the side. The franchise will miss their full-time captain Shreyas Iyer, who is ruled out of the competition due to shoulder injury.

For the coming season, the franchise has signed likes of Steven Smith and Ajinkya Rahane to bolster their batting resources.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Marcus Stoinis and Rishabh Pant to deliver the bulk of the runs.

Last year, opener Shikhar Dhawan showed excellent form and consistency for Delhi at the top of the innings. Left-hander accumulated 618 runs in 17 innings at an average of 44.14 with two centuries and four half-centuries to his name.

Former Australian captain Steven Smith will be slotted into the playing XI for this opening encounter. Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetymer and Rishabh Pant will make up the middle-order for Delhi Capitals.
