The Pitch report for ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium was batting friendly but nowadays it has been beneficial for the new ball, the average T20 score is between 160-180 in the 1st innings. This ground has not been used in this years IPL season, but it will be hosting the qualifier 2 and the eliminators. As per the last match, it was really to play those shots during the powerplay but as the match went on it became a little slow in both the innings. Whatsoever it will be really fun for all the batsman to go out there and play those big shots.
Toss Predictions for CSK vs DC:
If CSK bats first (predicted score:180-200)
CSK have experienced players at their side and know well how to come back from these conditions. They lost their last two matches but that wont change the side. The opening batsman Watson and Du Plessis will look to thrash the DC bowlers at the early stages of the innings on a batting pitch like this. With batting line up like Suresh Raina and Rayadu we can easily predict a high scoring total. And Thala at the end of the innings to make it reach a decent total.
If DC bats first (predicted score: 160-190)
Both the teams have amazing batting line up to put up or chase a big total. But we see the disadvantage in the DC line up as they have to face experienced bowlers like Imran Tahir and DJ Bravo. The Key to DC batting will be the opening. Shaw and Dhawan have to step up and create the same magic they performed in the last match on this pitch. With partnership of 60 plus in the powerplay can loosen the pressure off the batsman who come later on the innings.
Team News for CSK vs DC:
Chennai Super Kings:- The biggest fall back for the CSK side is that Kedar Jadhav has been injured and won’t be playing the rest of the tournament. Murli Vijay played in the last match in place of him and was not able to contribute the way Jadhav would have. It’s a tough decision to make balance to that middle order. The rest of the team seems perfect with all the senior and experienced players.
