Delhi Capitals host Chennai Super Kings for first home game of IPL 2019 season today.
Today’s match at the Ferozeshah Kotla offers more than just sealing a slot for the World Cup team. The trending ‘MS Dhoni vs Rishabh Pant’ debate will gain heat when Delhi Capitals take the field against Chennai Super Kings.
The nature of the Kotla track makes CSK favourites helped by the spin trio of Harbhajan Singh, Ravindra Jadeja and Imran Tahir.
The Kotla pitch, which gets slower with time, might force Dhoni to start with his pacers and keep Harbhajan and Tahir for the overs when Pant is expected to be in action.
Delhi Capitals Playing XI – Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Colin Ingram, Keemo Paul, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Trent Boult, and Ishant Sharma
Chennai Super Kings Playing XI – Harbhajan Singh, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur
