IPL 2019: CSK skipper MS Dhoni fuels RCB youngsters at the Chepauk

BCCI asks IPL franchises to prepare sporting wickets

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

While Chennai had a side bursting with spinners, RCB only had two and that made chasing down 71 a comfortable task for the Super Kings. The RCB skipper needed 52 runs to reach the landmark at the start of the match but could only add six more runs to his tally before getting out to Harbahajan Singh as Raina left him behind in the race.

Delhi Capitals look like a complete squad this time around as they have tried to plug the loopholes from the last season.

Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni (captain & WK), Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay, Kedar Jadhav, Sam Billings, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhruv Shorey, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Rituraj Gaikwad, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Imran Tahir, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Mohit Sharma, K M Asif, David Willey, Deepak Chahar, N Jagadeesan (wk).

Following his swashbuckling innings in the previous match, the spotlight will continue to remain on Rishabh Pant. Shikhar Dhawan played his role to perfection in the opener; in what is largely a young and inexperienced Delhi Capitals line-up, he batted until the 16 over against MI, scoring a patient 36-ball 49.

The event is a pivotal moment for the company, which is rebranding itself as a services company amid a saturated iPhone market . But if there's more money in streaming services, I imagine the company would be willing to take that loss.

Suresh Raina in action against RCB.

While CSK will expect their batsmen to score more freely at the Kotla, Capitals would want their opening bowlers Trent Boult and Ishant Sharma to be a bit more economical. Jadhav was ruled out for the entire season a year ago after the first match.

After the match, Dhoni was seen giving some valuable batting tips to RCB youngster Shivam Dube who played his first IPL game last night.

Next the Chennai team faces Delhi Capitals on Tuesday, March 26.
