Only two matches remain in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) vs Delhi Capitals (DC) will decide the second finalist to play against Mumbai Indians. It will be Delhi’s first ever appearance in an IPL final and they would want to make the most of today’s game to get there. Dhoni’s men are in known territories as the team has already won the league multiple times.

Team News

Chennai Super Kings are still without the services of their senior pro, Kedar Jadhav, who might well be in trouble for the World Cup owing to the injury he sustained a few days back. However, that will be decided later on and his replacement for CSK in the last game was Murali Vijay. It remains to be seen whether Vijay is retained tonight or not.

For Delhi Capitals, Chris Morris has been a death over specialist as most of his career wickets have come in overs 16-20. It would be unfair not to play him in probably Delhi’s biggest ever match. Colin Ingram has failed to deliver this season, however, he still has a chance to redeem himself by scoring big tonight.
