These are still early days in the Indian Premier League (IPL). But unlike in the preceding editions, these initial matches carry more significance since not all the teams are going be at full strength towards the business end of the league.
With most overseas players on duty in the upcoming World Cup expected to join their national squads, teams are looking to accumulate as many points early in the competition.
Defending champion Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals think no differently. Having won their opening encounters, they face off at the Ferozeshah Kotla ground to add to their points tally.
Delhi Capitals: Shreyas Iyer (capt), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Colin Ingram, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma.
Chennai Super Kings: Mahendra Singh Dhobi (capt & wk), Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir.
