Preview

As if batting and wicket-keeping comparisons weren’t enough, Rishabh Pant squares off against veteran MS Dhoni in first match as a captain of his IPL career.

Delhi Capitals (DC) lock horns with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Match 2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai without some of their key players. While Shreyas Iyer is nursing a shoulder injury after a fatal dive during India-England series, South African pace duo of Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada are serving their mandatory seven-day quarantine period after arriving from home series versus Pakistan.

On the other hand, The CSK batting will rely a lot on Faf du Plessis but the return of Suresh Raina, who missed the last season, will be a boost for the three-time champions as they look to do better this time than the seventh place finish they got last season.

Post-match Presentation

Shaw:

Feeling good, everyone contributed and the wicket was good to bat on in the second innings. From Australia when I was dropped, I worked on the back-and-across [movement], I focused with Pravin sir as well. I think it's working quite well. I don't want to think about India spot. I have to move on, if something is wrong with my technique, no excuses.

Dhoni:

A lot depended on how much dew you would get. That's the reason we wanted to get as much runs as possible. The first few overs it was a bit tacky, and the batters did well to get to 188. Coming to bowling, we could have done better. The batters were hitting over the top, there was some boundary deliveries, where the execution wasn't nice. The bowlers will learn for the coming guys. As I said, you have to look ahead, especially when you have dew, you have to get extra runs. 7.30 start means opposition will have less amount of dew and we have to score those 15-20 runs extra. After that you need to get early wickets also. Well, if we keep consistently getting dew, 200 is something all teams have in mind. I felt both our openers got very good deliveries, and that can happen in a game like this.
