The Dubai International Cricket Stadium is going to host the seventh match of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) faces Delhi Capitals (DC) on Friday.
CSK started their IPL 2020 campaign with a win. However, CSK lost their second game against Rajasthan Royals. Ambati Rayudu, who scored 71 off 48 balls in the tournament opener against Mumbai Indians, was crucial to CSK winning their first game.
However, CSK missed him in the middle-order in the second game against RR, losing the game by 16 runs. Now, it remains to be seen if he is ready for tonight’s match or not. DC, on the other hand, won a nail biting match against Kings XI Punjab in a Super Over-finish.
Both the teams will be eyeing their second win of the season. If DC beat CSK, they will break the three-match losing streak against CSK.
Date: 25th September 2020 (Friday)
Time: 7:30 PM IST.
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
Both the teams have clashed with each other 21 times, and it’s the CSK who have had the upper hand. CSK have won 15 times.
CSK at this venue: Played 2, Won 2
DC at this venue: Played 3, Won 2, Lost 1
Weather and pitch report:
The temperature will likely hover around 40 degrees Celsius. With the dew coming into play under the lights, the toss winner is likely to opt to bowl first. Any score between 160-180 would be a decent score.
Interestingly, the team batting first has won all three games so far at Dubai in IPL 2020. There is the issue of dew in the second innings, but a good score first up can be difficult to chase. More hot weather is on the way.
