After a lacklustre outing against Rajasthan Royals, three-time IPL champions Chennai will take on Delhi Capitals in a league encounter. In their last game, the MS Dhoni-led side suffered a 16-run defeat and barring Faf du Plessis most of the CSK players failed in leaving an impact. Moreover, Dhoni’s decision to come down the order backfired and the charismatic captain received a backlash from not only fans but also many cricketing greats like Sunil Gavaskar, Gautam Gambhir, and others. Dhoni later clarified on his decision to come lower down the order. The captain himself wasn’t happy with the bowlers.

LIVE SCORE & UPDATES IPL 2020, CSK vs DC in Dubai – TOSS at 7 PM ISTAlso, the decision to replace an unfit Ambati Rayudu with Ruturaj Gaikwad didn’t click as the debutant was back in the dugout without troubling the scorers. Moreover, CSK openers failed in both games and that is another cause of concern for the team management. Sam Curran, who has been promoted up the order, played a cameo in both games but the England all-rounder needs to spend some time in the middle. Dhoni had hit three maximums in the final over against the Royals, but that couldn’t win the game.

On the other hand, Delhi were on the verge of defeat in their first game against Kings XI Punjab before Marcus Stoinis rescued his side to push the contest to the Super Over decider. Later, it was Kagiso Rabada who showed his talent with the ball and ensured the night belonged to DC.
The DC top-order failed to fire against Punjab while Rishabh Pant and skipper Shreyas Iyer showed some resistance with the bat. But they were unable to convert their efforts into a big innings. It was Stoinis, who hammered 53 off 21 balls to propel his side to a fighting total.
Disney + Hotstar and broadcast timings in India and UAEKolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are the only teams without points in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) so far, having lost their opening encounters to Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) respectively, and the upcoming battle between the two teams in Abu Dhabi will be all about staving off the bottom spot and collecting first points on the board.
SRH had made a fine comeback after RCB’s young opener Devdutt Padikkal produced a scintillating 56 off 42 while opening alongside Aaron Finch on IPL debut. The Sunrisers kept picking wickets at regular intervals after Padikkal’s dismissal, with skipper Virat Kohli falling cheaply for 14, although AB de Villiers’ 51 gave them a boost in the slog overs as they finished on 163/5.
Despite losing David Warner early, Jonny Bairstow and No 3 batsman Manish Pandey had things fairly under control with a solid 71-run second-wicket stand, but the ‘Orange Army’ lost the plot once the two were sent back to the dugout. From 121/2, the Sunrisers collapsed to 153 all out to suffer a 10-run loss.
The match between KKR and MI was even more one sided, the latter extending their domination over Dinesh Karthik’s outfit with a massive 49-run victory. After a blip with the bat in the opening game against CSK, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma roared back to form with a 54-ball 80 as his team finished on a competitive 195/5.
KKR, in reply, lost wickets from the word ‘go’, and barring the partnership between Karthik and Nitish Rana, never quite were able to steady the ship during the innings and produce a counter-attack at some stage that would put their opponents under pressure. It took one outstanding over from Jasprit Bumrah, who like Rohit also got his rhythm back in this game, to seal the game in MI’s favour as the pacer removed Andre Russell and Eoin Morgan in a space of a few deliveries.
The biggest talking point from the KKR-MI match was Pat Cummins’ inability to make an impact with the ball. The star Aussie pacer, who was sold to the Knight Riders for a whopping Rs 15.5 crore in the last player auction, did not even complete his quota of four overs as he was smashed for 49 runs.
Cummins, however, did highlight his handiness with the bat later in the match as he smashed four sixes in Bumrah’s final over in his 12-ball cameo of 33, and skipper Karthik came to his rescue after the match, saying one bad performance alone couldn’t define him, indicating the team leadership might be backing him for a few more games.
