In the penultimate game of the 2019 Indian Premier League, the Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with the Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2 on Friday. The defending champions will be determined to make it into the final after being thrashed in Qualifier 1 by the Mumbai Indians, while the Delhi Capitals will be confident after edging out the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator. Another intriguing match is set to take place in Visakhapatnam when both these teams battle it out for a spot in the final.

Chennai Super Kings finished second in the points table, despite some inconsistent performances in the recent weeks. Their batting woes were exposed once again in their previous encounter against Mumbai. Having been hammered by the Mumbai Indians, the reigning champions would be eyeing to bounce back in the upcoming game. MS Dhoni will have to make some tough calls for this match and maybe drop Shane Watson, who has been in poor form lately. The bowling department has performed exceptionally well for CSK throughout this season, especially Deepak Chahar and Imran Tahir, who have been taking wickets consistently.

On the contrary, Delhi Capitals have been the most improved and impressive team in this edition of the IPL. After defeating the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator, DC registered their first-ever playoff victory in the IPL. Shreyas Iyer has been commendable in the way he has led his young troops this season. With the right combination of youth and experience, Delhi Capitals have the potential to lift their maiden IPL title this year.
