IPL 2019 Delhi Capitals Vs Chennai Super Kings
Match No 5: DC Vs CSK
Venue: Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi.
Head- to- Head:
So far, out of 18 head-to-head matches, 12 games have been won by CSK and 6 by DC.
The pitch is usually slow and for the past few years, it had started to support the spinners.
About the game:
CSK, lead by Thala is yet to meet the team DC lead by the young promising player Shreyas Iyer. Both the teams have begun the season with a winning stroke which is a huge positive stroke for the teams.
Talented batsmen like Shreyas Iyer, Rishab Pant and Shikhar Dhawan can add better total score if they estimate the track of the game perfectly. Trent Boult, a world-class bowler can be a threat to CSK while Amit Mishra and Rabada will be keen on contributing their part.
CSK can be dangerous to DC in both batting & bowling as they have good opening order and decent bowling line up. They must give extra heed to their middle-order to put up a high score. Openers Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu can make the game easy for the bowlers by adding a perfect total score. As the pitch supports the spinners, the bowlers Bhaji and Jaddu can hunt their wickets if played with good line and length.
CSK, the team with experienced players should grasp the mind voice of the DC batsmen and try to avoid building partnership.
DC has a better bowling line-up when compared to batting. If they are able to build partnerships, they can add a good score on the scoreboard. They must handle the CSK bowlers carefully to avoid losing wickets at the early stage.
DC can easily turn the game to their side if CSK fails to focus on their middle-order properly. According to me, CSK, the team with a passionate fan base can easily win the game if they are able to handle the DC bowlers well.
If you remember this, you and Trent Boult are awesome:
Just inches away from the boundary line, Boult took a spectacular catch of Virat Kohli’s strike by jumping flawlessly forming a swirl in the air, at the last ball of 11th over which was also awarded the catch of the season in 2018.
