IPL 2018, Match 52: FPJ’s Dream XI for Delhi Daredevils and Chennai Super Kings


Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will lock horns against each other today. DD are at the bottom of the points table and are wooden spoon contenders. After a poor start to the season, the Daredevils in a bid to get their campaign back on track replaced their regular captain and handed the reins to Shreyas Iyer which gave the side some hope. However, since then, DD managed to win only one in the following five matches. The Daredevils are out of the tournament while 2 teams have already qualified, 5 teams are in contention for the playoffs berth. Against CSK, DD will be playing for their pride. Here are the probable dream XI for the Daredevils:

DD: Prithvi Shaw, Jason Roy, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Abhishek Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Trent Boult, Sandeep Lamichhane, Junior Dala

On the other hand, CSK are the second spot and have qualified for the playoffs. A win against DD with a better run-rate will take them to top of the table. Now, they will be playing for the top 2 spot. But to note, CSK is struggling in the bowling department but their batting performance has been brilliant with every player are contributing. CSK will be aware that they haven’t fared too well on the road in their last couple of matches; they lost to KKR at the Eden Gardens and RR in Jaipur. That’s an area MS Dhoni and co. will seek to improve, given they will have plenty of games to play outside of home in the coming days. Here we see the probable dream XI for the Super Kings:

CSK: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar
