MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will cross swords with Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals in the 55th match of IPL 2022 at Dr DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai on Sunday. Chennai are almost out of the playoffs race as they have just three wins in 10 games while Delhi have a fair chance of making it to the final four as they have five wins in 10 games. CSK need to win all their reaming matches and hope for other team results to go in their favour while DC just need to win three more wins in last four games.

Chennai Super Kings will look to bring back their veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo in place of Dwayne Pretorious. The South African all-rounder failed to live up to the expectations with the bat and with the ball. He has leaked runs in the death and has not grabbed the opportunity when he got to bat. Simarjeet Singh might have run out of chances as well and Dhoni will look to bring back Shivam Dube. The left-hand power hitter has performed brilliantly with the bat but was equally poor when it comes to bowling. However, CSK will look to strengthen their middle order by adding Dube.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals need to fix their opening issue. Mandeep Singh, who replaced out of form Prithvi Shaw in the last game was out on a duck. He has not performed this season and it is most likely that he will lose his place in today’s match as well. Prithvi should be back, he has the history of scoring runs against Chennai and Pant should back him for one more game.
