DC v CSK | IPL 2020 Match 34 Live Today
After six out of eight games won, DC is currently in second place in the points table, while CSK is in sixth place with three wins from eight games.
Both teams come into this game after winning their previous games. While DC defeated Rajasthan Royals, CSK prevailed against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
In their last encounter, DC CSK had beaten 44 runs and wants to make it 2-0 in the head-to-head fights. In the meantime, CSK DC will refuse to win and thus offer the opportunity to get to the top of the points table.
As both teams try to build on their winners, here are the players who could play an important role in the outcome of the game.
Ambati Rayudu comes into this game with more than 40 innings after two consecutive innings and the right-handed will try to get better this time and make it count by hitting big runs against DC.
Despite dropping for zero, Dwayne Bravo pulled off a stunning run-out and picked two wickets as CSK defeated SRH. The all-rounder threw the final past and only conceded one run. He’ll shine eagerly against DC if CSK strives for a second win straight away.
Shikhar Dhawan scored 57 points in DC’s last game, scoring its second half-century in a row. The left-hander will try to improve on his good form and add another big score to his name. When he fires up, it works as the perfect launchpad for the middle order of the DC to get big.
It took CSK some quick runs on top and opened the innings with Sam Curran against SRH. The switch worked when the young all-rounder achieved 31 out of 21 deliveries. Curran also chose a wicket to get the ball rolling for CSK while keeping the grand total. The unit led by MS Dhoni will again bet on the youngster against DC.
While Jos Buttler took him over in the first game of the DC RR game, Anrich Nortje, throwing some absolute lightning bolts, showed steel and fought back to pick up two wickets to lead DC home. The right arm pacemaker is in good shape and as DC takes on CSK he will be eager to add a few more wickets to his account.
He hasn’t been a runner in the last few games, but Prithvi Shaw will be eager to get back in shape and in some ways to do so. The last time these two teams competed, the right-hander beat 64 of 43 to get DC’s victory. The performance can serve as motivation for the young person.
