Dhoni is largely regarded as the ‘King of Comebacks’ and he’ll be pretty keen on staging one, once again. The most consistent team of IPL, Chennai Super Kings will gather heart from their disappointing loss against the Mumbai Indians and would look to give the young Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals a tough fight. Iyer has shown brilliant temperament and abilities as a captain, and coming up against Dhoni’s master-brain in Qualifier 2 will surely be the sternest test of his calm.
Likely Playing XIs:
Chennai Super Kings: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Murali Vijay, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ambati Rayudu, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Colin Munro, Rishabh Pant(w), Sherfane Rutherford, Axar Patel, Keemo Paul, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Trent Boult
Both DC and CSK have banked on their middle order to deliver, with one of their openers seeing it through most often. The keepers Dhoni and Pant are in impeccable form, and their outing with the bat will greatly affect the result of the match. Dhoni has a reputation of smartly playing with his resources, which will hold key on an unexplored slow Vizag wicket. The stage is set for the youth to take on the experienced, but only time has the answer to who will prevail.
