Chennai: Chennai Super Kings, the defending champions are gearing up to face the revamped Delhi Capitals at the capital city later tonight. Both the teams have started off their tournament with victories and are vying for a win to go to the top of the table. The teams are loaded with stars and News Today takes a look at some of the key players to watch out for in the match.
The IPL veteran had a dismal start to his season as he was dismissed without scoring any runs in the first match on the rank-turner at Chepauk. However, the in-form batsman is capable of bludgeoning any bowling attack on his day and he is someone who the Delhi bowlers will be wary of.
Playing for Delhi this season, the flamboyant left-hander gave a good start for his new team in the last game and this time, playing in his home ground, he will again be determined to start off well. If the Indian opener gets going then he can be unstoppable.
The young wicket-keeper batsman with his whirlwind 78 runs off just 27 balls against Mumbai Indians has once again displayed his hard-hitting abilities and can pose a threat to the CSK bowlers. Watch out for his one-handed shots that can sail into the stands.
The batsman who can always instil fear in the bowlers, cannot be taken lightly by the Delhi Capitals. Despite not being at his best, when it comes to IPL, Dhoni can always take the bowling to the cleaners. Also, the DC batsmen should be wary of his lightning quick work behind the stumps.
One of the most vital players for South Africa, this young pacer can unsettle any batting line-up with his searing pace. With his speeds hovering consistently over 145, he can be a key bowler for Delhi to restrict the strong CSK top order from scoring.
