We are in day 4 of the Indian Premier League. Now the battle for the top 4 positions on the points table will really begin.

Today we have Delhi Capitals taking on Chennai Super Kings. Both of these teams have won their first matches. Today’s match is being advertised as the battle between the current wicketkeeper in the limited overs, MS Dhoni with that of Risabh Pant who is seen as the successor of the maestro.

Both of these teams performed really well in their opening match. CSK had a one-sided game against RCB while DC defeated MI in a high scoring game. CSK’s bowling was tested while DC’s batting was tested in their respective games. The scope of performance of other players is still left and that can be done in today’s game.

Predicted Playing XI

DC: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Colin Ingram, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Trent Boult, Ishant Sharma

CSK: Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir
