Game 2 of Sunday double-header and Match No. 55 of Tata IPL 2022 will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals(CSK vs DC) on 8th May 2022 at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. Match will start at 07:30PM IST.
Chennai and Delhi have played 26 games against each other, Chennai have won 16 times and Delhi have won 10 times.
Chennai Super Kings hopes in reaching playoffs are almost over, after suffering defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore in last match. CSK are currently at No 9 in points table, with 3 wins in 10 games. This season for CSK has went very similar to 2020. Now, CSK will play for spoiling other team’s party. CSK main players haven’t performed according to expectations this season and that has really hurt CSK.
Now, CSK could go with their benched players as hopes of reaching playoffs is almost over. Simranjeet Singh is someone who CSK could replace with any other Indian pacer. Top-order has looked well in last 2 games but middle-order has failed to make an impact which was biggest reason for loss in 2nd match.
Delhi Capitals on other hand, has started playing as a unit in last few games. David Warner, Rishabh Pant and Rovman Powell are looking to counter-attack and play attacking cricket from ball 1. Other batsmans need to score for DC as well specially Lalit Yadav and opening partner of David Warner. There are chances that DC might try someone else in place of Mandeep Singh.
