Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Daredevils

CSK vs DD IPL Live Streaming 2013

We saw the biggest shuffle in IPL 2013 points table when Rajasthan defeated Mumbai with a huge margin and toppling them to achieve top position. Now Rajasthan Royals stand on the top position and Mumbai Indians are dropped to fourth ranking. If Chennai Super Kings manages to beat Delhi Daredevils today with a big margin, they can further topple Mumbai Indians and take their fourth position in the points table.

Delhi Daredevils performances haven't done justice to the strength they display on paper. And this proves that on paper strength doesn't matter. Ultimately the outcome of the matches matters. Delhi has been at the receiving in all the matches they have played so far. Languishing right at the bottom of the points tally, they have lost all their matches so far in IPL 2013.
Mahela Jayawardene still sees chances of getting into top four positions if his team atleast win all the remaining home matches. And their campaign can begin with a win today against strong Chennai Super Kings. The biggest boost that can help this team win matches would be consistent contributions from Sehwag and Warner. 

In their last match Delhi Daredevils showcased a lot of improvement as they managed to tie against Royal Challengers Bangalore. But ultimately they gave up in the Super Over and couldn't register their first win. They need to turn tables on the opponents in such tight finishes.

On the other hand Chennai Super Kings were shocked with their defeat against Pune Warriors India. Chasing 160 runs which shouldn't have been too difficult for Chennai, they lost the momentum in between and ended up losing by 25 runs. CSK has played three matches at home so far and lost two. This isn't the way they generally perform at home. Time now for CSK to pull up their socks and pull out a big victory to reach top four!

Suresh Raina is CSK's best batsman so far but he looks out of form. It would be a great news for CSK if he regains his form at the earliest. At times it is required for Dhoni to climb up the order a bit because while chasing the momentum slows down too much with the likes of Badrinath. Michael Hussey and Murali Vijay needs to consistenly lay a good foundation while batting first of while chasing too.

On a head to head note, CSK leads the stats 6-4 against Delhi. So another great opportunity for Delhi to make it even stevens. Plus they enjoy the home advantage also. Let us see if CSK provides a spirited performance and clinches a win or Delhi comes up with something great to register their first win this year.
