One of the most loved Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be locking horns with their northern counterpart Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi. The irony is that both the teams have won their respective season openers that too with a bang. While CSK defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the tournament opener in Chennai by a huge margin and Delhi thrashed Mumbai Indians (MI) in Mumbai.
Despite the fact that Capitals has always underperformed in most of the IPL seasons, they started on a high this year and hence, the defending champions will be in no mood of taking a team like this lightly. However, any given day, CSK looks stronger than ever and there are certain chances that they will defend their title this year. However, at home, Delhi can be a team to beat, especially after seeing their batting performance in the opening game and Delhi pitch has always been a batsman’s paradise.
Let us take a glance at the 5 players who can perform out of the box in the match between DC vs CSK.
#5 Ishant Sharma (DC)
On Sunday, Ishant Sharma was looking to be in a good rhythm when Mumbai’s chase began. He picked the most crucial wicket of Rohit Sharma in his second over itself and in his next over, he also dismissed Quinton de Kock to destroy the hopes of Mumbai’s fans. Ishant ended his dry spell of wickets and took his first wicket since IPL 2016. In between, he has bowled 25 overs so far but he couldn’t taste success even once. He can be lethal on the Delhi track as well.
