The second official knockout match of IPL 2019 will be played between the reigning and three-time champions Chennai Super Kings and a team which has literally risen from the ashes this season the Delhi Capitals.
Stakes would be high and both teams will put everything on the line to book a final berth and set a date with Mumbai Indians in the finals which is scheduled to take place at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad. The Delhi Capitals are coming into this encounter after registering their first ever knockout win in IPL history against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator by 2 wickets.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings winning run was once again halted by the Mumbai Indians who defeated them in their own backyard by 6 wickets to book a place in the finals. That loss was Chennai’s third straight loss to MI this season. They will look for a fresh start and shrug off their disappointments from the last game.
The last time when these two had a face-off, it was the reigning champions CSK who had the last laugh. Batting first, CSK scored 179 and then dismissed Delhi Capitals for a mere 99 to register an 80 runs win. Talking about the head-to-head battle, out of 20 encounters, CSK has won 14, whereas, Delhi Capitals have managed only 6 wins.
