Chennai: The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be taking on Delhi Capitals at the M.A Chidambaram stadium on Wednesday. Both the teams have already sealed their berth in the playoffs. However, CSK will be looking to continue its winning expedition to play at home in the qualifier stage.
The playing of CSK skipper MS Dhoni is still uncertain. The Super Kings have been pretty ordinary in the absence of their skipper MS Dhoni. The keeper-batsman has missed two matches due to back issues. The Delhi franchise, on the other hand, has been consistent in all departments of the tournament.
However, the statistics bows down to the Super Kings as they have won each of their last five matches at the Chepauk against the Delhi Capitals/Daredevils in the IPL.
Dwayne Bravo needs one more wicket to complete 50 wickets in the Twenty20 format at Chepauk. Only Ravichandran Ashwin (51) has picked up 50 plus wickets at this venue in T20s till now.
Shikhar Dhawan’s batting average of 54.2 in Twenty20s at Chepauk is the highest for any player with 200 plus runs. In the seven T20 innings at this venue, Dhawan has smashed 271 runs with the help of two fifties.
