DD won the toss and chose to field first
Delhi Daredevils, on the other hand, despite their not so good performance must be brimming with confidence after their win in the last match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Delhi will like to continue their performance whereas Chennai would come with an aim to rectify their path and start winning the matches back to back again.
CSK sit in the top half of the standings with five wins and two losses. In their most recent outing – on Saturday night, they lost a close one to the Mumbai Indians. Batting first, CSK posted 169-5, which MI chased down in the last over. The CSK innings did not have the momentum that one usually expects to see in a 20-over contest; the start was slow, and there were periods of quiet in the middle of the innings too.
