Preview: -Chennai Super Kings would’ve been quick to write-off their Sharjah bow in IPL 2020 as a jarring aberration. They were completely out of depth with both bat and ball against Rajasthan Royals, but they don’t have to immediately go looking for remedial measures to thrive on that bowlers’ graveyard – where they next play only on October 17. For now, different challenges await them in Dubai.
Deepak Chahar will be relieved to know that there was a little bit of swing for the quicks early on in the games in Dubai. He got none of it in Abu Dhabi or Sharjah, adversely affecting his early impact (25 PowerPlay wickets in the last two seasons). MS Dhoni will lean on him to make swift in-roads before the duel shifts to the middle-overs. It’s usually a phase that Dhoni enjoys controlling, with his spinners, but the make-up of the two teams could throw a curveball his way.
Three out of Delhi Capitals’ top-five batsmen are left-handed, and with Harbhajan Singh opting out, not one of CSK’s spinners can turn the ball away from them to cause problems. The three-time winners themselves used this match-up to their advantage in the chase against Mumbai Indians, when they sent in the left-handed Sam Curran ahead of Dhoni because left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya still had over to bowl. Curran hit comfortably with the turn, getting a six and a four off that over, and a six-ball cameo worth 18 in all.
For Delhi Capitals, the challenge will be to tweak their early approach. In the frenzied, Super Over win, DC didn’t just pocket the two points on offer; they also learnt how not to bat early on in Dubai. If they are to exploit CSK’s possible spin issue in the middle phase, they will first need to re-calibrate the way they begin, to avoid making themselves susceptible to a collapse.
What to expect: The first impression of the pitch there – from the DC-KXIP fixture – is that batsmen who can take time and settle in are likelier to succeed off than those looking to biff from the outset. For CSK, this should come as music to their ears.
Chennai Super Kings
Ruturaj Gaikwad is set for another chance as Stephen Fleming stated that the franchise expect Ambati Rayudu to be fit only by their next fixture against SRH, which is a week away on October 2. Dwayne Bravo too is said to be ‘progressing well’ and should be in contention to play against the Sunrisers.
Probable XI: Shane Watson, Murali Vijay, Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Sam Curran, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi
Ishant Sharma has been all but ruled out by DC assistant coach Mohammad Kaif, while Ravichandran Ashwin is set to be assessed in training on the eve of the fixture before a decision is made. Should Ashwin not pass fit, Amit Mishra is a likely replacement.
Mohit Sharma played DC’s opener in Ishant’s place, but could yet make way for a quicker fast bowler in Avesh Khan, after having conceded 45 in his 4 overs. The other possible advantage of picking Avesh is in having three bowlers – Avesh, Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada – who can hurry the CSK top-order batsmen with pace.
Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin/Amit Mishra, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Mohit Sharma/Avesh Khan
– CSK have won 15 of their 21 matches against Delhi. Last season, Delhi Capitals lost each of their three clashes against Dhoni’s side
– Since 2019, Shane Watson and Prithvi Shaw are two batsmen to have been dismissed the most inside the PowerPlay overs – 12 times each
“MS is one of the players that hasn’t played much cricket in the last year-and-a-half. Everyone expects MS to come out and do what he has done in the past. It doesn’t just happen, it takes a bit of work and a part of his process of getting up to speed is his game time and that (match against Rajasthan Royals) was really the first time that he’d batted in the middle apart from a couple of balls against Mumbai Indians.” – CSK head coach Stephen Fleming on Dhoni’s scratchy start.
“It’s going to be a different ball game altogether. Stats might not give the real picture in this IPL. That happened a year and half ago, this is a different tournament. Some might come in form much earlier, some might take a bit longer compared to others. We’re a different squad also, we have bought some new players in the auction. So compared to last year, we are a different Delhi Capitals team this year.
