Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Daredevils Preview - IPL Match 8

CSK vs DD Live on Star Sports, Go Cricket and Sony Six in India

As IPL moves forward each year, the most important and interesting part has to be the points table. Way every team moves up and down after the result of every match is really interesting. Before Chennai Super Kings face Delhi Daredevils in the only IPL match today, you can check the IPL points table and results so far by clicking here and here. Meanwhile as we keep you updated about the IPL 2014 live streaming and telecast information, Go Cricket and Star Sports will provide live streaming in India for today's match and Sony Six will provide live TV telecast.

It isn't too regular to see a team posting 200 plus runs and then losing it. The strongest team in the IPL history viz. Chennai Super Kings suffered that blow in their opening match against Kings XI Punjab. After a splendid start from McCullum and Dwayne Smith. They scored 123 runs in just 12.4 overs before McCullum departed on 67 off just 45 balls. Smith scored 66 off just 43 balls. Raina and Dhoni continued the hitting with 24 and 26 runs from 19 and 11 balls respectively. But they didn't receive an equal support from the bowling end. Magical innings from Maxwell (95 runs from 43 balls) and Miller (54 runs from 37 balls) snatched the match from CSK.

It would be interesting to see how Chennai's team can bounce back after that heart breaking loss. Although it isn't late at all for CSK as they have played just one match, still they need to pull up their socks at the earliest. By the way we all know, no one bounces back as well as the SuperKings do! Another funny tweet here for our readers. Sir Ravindra Jadeja follows the ball till the moon. We all know his fielding heroics. He may have something in store for his fans in today's match. You never know!
On the other hand we have Delhi Daredevils that looked too depleted now in the absence of Sehwags and Pietersens. Skipper Pietersen didn't play first two matches due to an injury. Although the clouds of uncertainties are still very dark that whether he would play today or not, the good news flew in later when he indicated that he has almost recovered from the injury.

Delhi lost its first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore but they bounced back well against Kolkata to clinch a win. JP Dumminy is in a phenomenal form. He is just below the orange cap holder Maxwell. Duminy has scored 119 runs from 2 innings with a strike rate of 143. He also has six sixes to his name so far and e finds himself amongst the top few six hitters this year in the IPL's seventh edition.

On paper we still fill Chennai is a stronger team, but as you saw how they lost even after posting 200 plus on board, it is too hard to pick a favourite. Rather its always hard to do this in any IPL face off. 

Happy Easter and enjoy today's IPL match.
