Preview by Prakhar:
Did the capital of Delhi finally turn the corner after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad? With MS Dhoni at the forefront, does Chennai need to contribute more to contribute to the heading to the final lap? These are the top questions in Game 2 of the Double Quarter on Sunday. Neither team has won two games in a row this season, highlighting the commonality of this contradiction.
It was a life-threatening match for CSK, who lost 7 out of 10 matches. They are watching the results of other games as carefully as they are looking inward. However, the defeat here means they couldn't pass the second league stage in IPL history. It's an unfamiliar area, but after winning the game and getting closer to the RCB, I'm tackling some issues. While the openers were finding shape, the middle sequence gradually diminished, like their death bowling without Dwayne Bravo.
The results so far have been mixed, but not too bad for a DC knocking on the door for a top four finish. They have a key person playing in the batting division and hope to continue. However, Shardul Thakuretal. The bowling form question mark remains unanswered. This led to the opposition always having some excess aimed at apparently weak links, increasing pressure on the other side.
CSK has shattered DC's heart at an important stage in the tournament in the past, but has been on the receiving side several times since then. As each other's weaknesses and strengths become apparent, the focus will be on who can take advantage of them.
When: Sunday, May 8, 2022 at 19:30 IST
Where: DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai
What to expect: CSK won two of the three wins here, but DC lost the only match at the venue. They want Toss to be in their favor, and the results so far show the benefits that both sides are chasing in night games.
Head to head: CSK 14 - 9 DC. Since 2018, CSK 5 - 5 DC
Tactics and match-ups: DC may reconsider how to use Kuldeep Yadav against the bookends of CSK's mid-career Moeen Ali (S / R 287.50, one severance) and MS Dhoni (S / R 156.67, two severances). I have. Kurdeep played in his favor in the middle-Ambati Reyudu (24 goals, 2 outs, S / R 100).
Changes: DC missed Axar Patel and Prithvi Shaw in the last match. The former will return, but Shaw's return may be further delayed.
Probable XI: David Warner, Mandeep Singh/Yash Dhull, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel Shardul Thakur, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed
Chennai Super Kings
Tactics and matchups: Given his good record for David Warner, if CSK was able to revive Dwayne Bravo, they could also consider using him first. Bravo fired him four times with 112 balls. In addition, Moeen Ali's backspin could be another lucrative match for DC southpaw.
Changes: The return of Dwayne Bravo and Shivam Duvet has overwhelmed Dwayne Bravo and Shivam Duvet in the last few games. If there are no fitness issues, there is potential for change.
Probable XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Pretorious/Dwayne Bravo, Simarjeet Singh/Shivam Dube, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary

What they said:
CSK is one of the winning teams at IPL. We always want to play against them because they set high standards for themselves. Due to the condensation factor of Dr. DY Patil's Sports Academy, I think it will be important to participate in the next game. However, the long boundaries of the stadium could be in favor of our spinners, especially Kurdeep Yadaf (Delhi's assistant coach, Pravin Amre), who is currently in good shape.
We need to keep looking for problems, it's easy to be distracted by the number of points you have, it's a mistake, it's an important process, it's not your place on the table-MS Dhoni Repeat his philosophy
