Spread the love

In qualifier 2 of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL 2019) Delhi Capitals (DC) will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnamon on Friday. MS Dhoni-led Chennai lost to Mumbai Indians in the qualifier 1 on Tuesday but they get another chance to reach the finals as they are placed second in IPL 2019 points table. Delhi defeated Kane Williamson’s Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Wednesday in the last-over thriller to face Chennai in the virtual semifinal. http://www.trendingsportsnet.com/latest-ipl-news/ipl-2019-eliminator-highlights-pant-heroics-helps-dc-beat-srh-by-2-wickets/While Capitals will have preference over Super Kings as they probably am aware the states of Vizag arena better however for CSK, MS Dhoni’s experience will be convenient to measure the idea of the wicket. Chennai would hope to fix their powerless spots while Delhi would appear to be increasingly predictable with the batting. Overall, both sides have their weakness exposed and the team that take advantage of others mistake early is likely to clinch the victory.



Chennai received a jolt when all-rounder Kedar Jadhav was injured in their last league match against Kings XI Punjab and was ruled out of IPL 2019. CSK included Murali Vijay in their playing 11 against Mumbai and would likely to retain him against Delhi.

Chennai Super Kings couldn’t demonstrate any battle before Mumbai’s bowling as the early wickets debilitated the run stream.MS Dhoni’s unbeaten 37 and Ambati Rayudu’s unbeaten 42 helped the team put 131/4 in 20 overs.Shane Watson yet again failed to connect the ball and perished early while Suresh Raina was caught and bowled by Jayant Yadav after he played an irresponsible shot in the air.

The way Chennai’s batsmen played in their home ground brings up a great deal of issues as even MS Dhoni conceded that his batsmen neglected to peruse the moderate Chepauk track and were not watchful in their shot choice. http://www.trendingsportsnet.com/latest-ipl-news/mumbai-versus-hyderabad-51st-match-live-cricket-score-commentary/

“At home, we had to assess the conditions quickly. We have played 6 to 7 games already, that’s the home advantage. We needed to know how the pitch behaves, would it be tacky? Is the ball coming on or not, those were the things we didn’t do well, I think the batting needs to get better,” the CSK skipper said after the match.

“These are the best batsmen we have got, it looks like we are batting well, but at times, but in different games, they pull off shots that shouldn’t be played. These are the players who we have banked on. They have the experience and they should know to assess the conditions better, hopefully, we will do well in the next game,” he said.

Chennai bowlers have little to guard however they put an average show by picking Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock early and after that Imran Tahir reignited the expectations by expelling Ishan Kishan and Krunal Pandya on progressive conveyances. However they couldn’t turn away the unavoidable.

If Deepak Chahar and Harbhajan Singh strike yet again during powerplay, Chennai will have an upper hand. A lot depends on how Imran Tahir bowls in the middle over while Dwayne Bravo would have to restrict run flow. Chennai may not look for any changes but as they play with three spinners and if they have a good outing in Vizag, it’ll all be in their favour.

Delhi Capitals: Team News:

Delhi chased dow 163-run target given by Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday with one-ball to spare as Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan gave a flying start to the team and after some ups and downs Rishabh Pant hit 21-ball 49 to take the team towards victory.

In doing as such, Shreyas Iyer-drove Delhi once more demonstrated its shortcoming, particularly the conflicting batting. Regardless of a decent begin, the batting crumbled under strain and if not for Rishabh Pant, the group would have lost the challenge.

“If you are set on a wicket like this, you have to finish the match for your team. I took it very close, but next time I will finish it for the team. (Pressure) I just try to be positive. If your mindset is negative, it doesn’t help,” Pant said after the match. http://www.trendingsportsnet.com/latest-ipl-news/ipl-2019-eliminator-highlights-pant-heroics-helps-dc-beat-srh-by-2-wickets/

“In T20s, you need 40 off 20 or thereabouts, at that point you need to assault one bowler. I don’t see who’s bowling. It’s in our muscle memory, and that is the reason we practice to such an extent. Today, that was unique since I didn’t attempt to hit the ball excessively hard. I was simply watching the ball, and I was attempting to time the ball,” he included.

The qualifier 2 will again be a pressure match with Dhoni trying all the tactics to put the young opponents in difficulty. Delhi is still doing fine in absence of Kagiso Rabada as Ishant Sharma is picking early wickets.The side depends on Amit Mishra for the turn assault as Axar Patel has been incapable in last couple of matches.

Delhi’s success relies mainly on its batting and the young trio — Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant — would have to perform. Shikhar Dhawan found it difficult to hit runs in the eliminator against SRH and threw away his wicket in a haste, Delhi would expect a responsible inning from the experienced batsman.Delhi would be high on certainty as they probably am aware the states of the ground in the wake of playing and winning the match in Vizag however Chennai is probably not going to commit a similar error.

DC Playing 11: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Munro, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Axar Patel, Keemo Paul, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Trent Boult.
