In the second match of the Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings will be playing Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. CSK had an unforgettable IPL campaign in the previous season, the young DC team also managed to grab two victories over the three-time winners in the last two games between the two teams. CSK will be aiming to start off the season on a higher note with a comprehensive victory while the DC management has shown immense faith in the young Rishabh Pant for the captain’s role. The two teams have several match-winners in their line-up which could play a crucial role in the upcoming fixture, let’s have a look at three players to watch out for ahead of the DC vs CSK match:
- Sam Curran
Sam Curran was the find of the season for Chennai Super Kings in the previous season as he proved his worth with his all round performance throughout the tournament. The southpaw seems to be in good form, he smashed 95 in the third ODI against India at Pune in the last month. The Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led-CSK will be counting on Curran to perform his best after an ordinary campaign for the team in the previous season.
- Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant has been in good touch since the start of this year, his performance against Australia and England in Test matches has been a good sign for DC. The 23-year-old cricketer has been handed over the captaincy in Shreyas Iyer’s absence. Pant had an underwhelming IPL 2020, the southpaw will be aiming to make a comeback with the bat and being efficient with the captaincy for Delhi in the upcoming edition of the tournament.
- Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina’s absence was felt in the previous year as CSK was struggling to score runs in the powerplay and middle overs. Raina has been an integral part of CSK’s success over the past decade. The southpaw has won many games for the MSD-led Chennai singlehandedly. Not just with the bat, Raina also operates well with the ball with Dhoni behind the stumps. Raina will be looking forward to making a terrific comeback and taking his team to glory in the IPL 2021.
