IPL 8 Match 49 Preview
IPL Prediction for DD vs CSK Match
Delhi Look to Spoil Parties
Match No 49: DD v CSK
Date and Venue: 12th May 2015, Raipur
Head to Head: Played 16 CSK 12 DD 4
The head to head record above shows how below par Delhi Daredevils has been in the Indian Premier League and how consistent Chennai Super Kings has been over the years.
Last time these two teams faced in this edition at Chennai it was a close encounter in which CSK came out on top by a mere one run. It was a rusty looking CSK who escaped the defeat narrowly on the back of their brilliant bowling performance. Batting first Chennai managed a below par 150 runs as none of the batsmen were able to pile on big score after getting the starts.
Delhi Daredevils’ batsmen were incompetent against the guile of CSK bowling except for Albie Morkel. He scored 73 off 55 balls but could not get them over the line. Ashish Nehra was phenomenal giving away 25 runs in the four overs and picking up three wickets in the process.
Chennai Super Kings is at the top of the points table and are almost guaranteed a place in the playoffs unless mathematics comes and screws them. But their batting has not been of the standard one expects from their line up. Unusually Raina, Dhoni and Jadeja has had a quiet IPL so far and due to which their middle overs batting has suffered big time.
In the last match too they scored 157 runs on the back of last two over blast but till then it was a slow middle over innings. However, their bowlers did the job for them without their main spinner, R Ashwin, having to bowl a single ball. It must be satisfying for Dhoni that his faith in Jadeja finally paid off as he picked up four wickets in the four overs he bowled giving away 11 runs. He was adjudged man of the match for his performance.
Delhi Daredevils will be hoping for few wins from the remaining matches so they can feel good about this new team. Their captain for the season, JP Duminy, has been an inspiration for their team. His captaincy has been admirable but as is the saying, the captain is as good as his team, his lone hand in the batting has not been enough for the team’s cause.
Yuvraj Singh has been a big disappointment for them as he has fired in one game and that too they lost. Apart from that Mathews has not looked comfortable at his position lower down the order and maybe he needs to bat up the order. In the opening slot they have tried Manoj Tiwary but could not garner enough runs.
The bowling has looked impressive especially after the return of Zaheer Khan in the line up. The spinners have done their job on most of the occasions with Amit Mishra and Imran Tahir bowling well in tandem.
