Mumbai progressed to the big stage of IPL and meanwhile, Delhi saw off a nerve-wracking final over against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to win their maiden IPL knockout game and book a Qualifier 2 date with MS Dhoni’s CSK. It’s been a dramatic fall in grace for the Chennai franchise and the management will be worried about the form of several of their batsmen. Barring MS Dhoni, none of the other batsmen features in the top 18 run-getters of the season. The Capitals have looked a good side right through the season, and have benefited from different players winning matches on different occasions.
On the bowling front, the Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Capitals have been the most successful bowling sides this season. Both sides have quality spinners in their line-up. So will Delhi chip the odds and cause an upset today or will we see the Lions roar today and march towards the final at Hyderabad?
